Bad swirl marks what to do?

i resently got some kinda stains on my paint from local water. the only way i was able to remove them was to use magiurs paint cleaner and a buffer pad. it removed the stains how ever has left horible swirl marks. when in bright light it looks real bad. applying wax helps but not completly but after a few weeks when most of the wax is washed off the swirls return "there bad" . is there any way to remove them permanitly with out a repaint. the truck is only 3 mounths old and i cant afford new paint job. if there is no way to remove them myself can a paint and body shop do it with out needing to repaint?

I would recommend using 3M hand Glaze (swirl mark remover). While it can be used by hand, I would recommend a 7" buffer, foam pad on a moderate speed (like around 600-900 rpm. Then apply your wax. It shouldn't take much effort.

A random-orbit polisher will do better than the rotary buffer at helping to remove the swirl marks with a swirl mark remover chemical.
