How to fix the candle wax diameter “Memory”

Today,¬† I realized I needed to trim the wick on my candle after it had already been burning 10-15 minutes and had melted the wax about a third of the way to the jar it is contained in. Without thinking, I extinguished the flame and trimmed the wick and relit the candle. Now the wax only melts to the circumference where the wax had melted before but no further. Is there any way to fix this and have the wax melt all the way to the jar once you “establish” a “border”?
