Damaged 3M Mask

I was backing around a tight turn and my passenger side front corner made contact with some Juniper bushes on the edge of the drive. There were some branches that had been pruned off and they scraped up the 3M mask pretty badly. I am hoping the paint was not damaged, but I won't know until I remove the affected mask.

If I use a heat gun and peel back the damaged area, is the painted surface underneath going to look different than the painted area adjacent that was not masked? I don't want to make this look worse than it already is.

The color is medium brown/bronze.
