Upper lip burned due to waxing, how would these marks be categorized and what would be the cost of the treatment? (photo)

I went to a salon for upper lip wax and they burned it. I don't how exactly to describe these marks. Can you please help and tell me the approximate amount for the treatment? ( Please mention the amount) What are the marks called? The salon manager agreed to do the settlement outside the court so how much should I charge them. What will be the cost of treatment?

Burn on Upper Lip

We would have to see you in the office to see the extent of the damage, however, after wound care I typically start people on lightening creams to prevent rebound hyperpigmentation.  Make an appointment with a cosmetic dermatologist.  Best, Dr. Emer.
