Unfortunately a wax won't fix it unless it has some polish in it as well. A polish will be needed to help remove some of the oxidation and fine surface imperfections. I would suggest starting with a light polish like the Menzerna Super Finish Polish SF 4000 (PO106FA Nano Polish). If needed move up to a stronger polish like the Menzerna Super Intensive Polish SI 1500 (PO83). Afterward protect it with a quality sealant or wax.
