Waxing leading to scars is a rare phenomenon.The pigmentation is PIH[postinflammatoryhyperpigmentation].I will put you on topical Demelan by night and Eloveraimf cream by day for 3 weeks along with C.Evion 600mg by day and continue with Blistex cream regularly for lips for dryness and also as sunprotection.
