When you say "two wireless microphones into one camera", is one speaker on the left channel and the other on the right channel or are they both recorded to the same mono track?

I would also suggest that after effects is not the tool to fix / balance audio. You may want to look at audition for levelling and cleaning up the track if you are using adobe suite products.

It all depends on whether you have separate tracks for each speaker and if you don't, whether they speak over each other. If you have a single track and they speak over each other then you can tackle it but it will be apparent that audio is being changed.

If you have a single track and they are not speaking over each other, splitting up the dialog onto different track and processing them separetly and raising the levels may help but you may also have issues with your noise floor, so it depends on the material.

Your best hope is that each speaker was recorded to separate channels in camera (i.e. one to left, one to right) and you can process them separatly, but watch that noise floor when you raise the quiet speaker.
