Thank you for posting photos. This is a very fresh injury. Your best options now are to keep the wound moist until it is entirely healed. Your pigment might or might not return over several months. If you reach a point where you've completely healed 6-12 months and your pigment has not returned medical-grade tattoo can be placed in that area to better blend your natural skin tone and coverup the light pink area. I would expect that this will improve significantly with time. I hope this information is helpful.

If a lip scar persists, it may be necessary to undergo a lip scar revision that includes excision and layered closure. Raffy Karamanoukian, Los Angeles
