Holly P.accidents, surgery
I was at a bonfire and a bottle in the fire exploded and cut my face pretty badly. I had three cuts: one on my eyelid, the second in the lower corner of my eye by my nose, and the third right below it on my cheek. I had immediate surgery and they had to put a tube from my lower tear duct draining into my nose. Being a 17-year-old girl at the time, I was very self-conscious about my scars. But after using Mederma® on all my scars, people hardly even notice them anymore, and they are much easier to cover up with makeup. I don't know what I would have done if I hadn’t used Mederma®!!
A few years ago my five-year-old daughter, Nicole, tried to make noodles in the microwave. The towel she used to pull them out of the microwave caught on the door and she spilled the boiling hot water on her arm. After weeks of treatment at the wound care center, we began applying Mederma® for Kids™ twice a day. Today the scars are much less noticeable. We're grateful for Mederma® and its amazing effects.
Two months ago I received second-degree burns from a flat iron I accidentally touched. Soon after, it became obvious it would leave a large scar on my left hand. My mom bought some Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel and I applied it religiously. I'm amazed by the results: reduced redness and my restored confidence.

I had a few burn scars and some scars from cuts and scrapes and such, so I began to use Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel on them once a day. WOW!!!! They look so much better. Now I am going to begin using it on my acne scars and hope it works. I have had acne for years now and have very bad scars. I do not leave the house without makeup, and even with foundation, concealer and powder you can still definitely see the scarring. I'm keeping my hopes up that this will work on my acne scars as well as it did on my other scars :)
Hi. I just wanted to say how wonderful and amazing I think your product is. I visited a dentist office where a young girl, slipped with a glue device while I was having a filling done on my tooth. As a result some of the dental glue got onto the side of my mouth; I tried various beauty products to remove it, but was left with an abrasion scar. I went to the local pharmacy and it was recommended to try Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel. I was amazed at how quickly it started to look better. The mark on the side of my mouth is much harder to notice. I think Mederma® is the most amazing product I have used. I think you’re really onto something with your product. Thank you so much. Until I was recommended Mederma®, I thought I would just have to live with the scar.

I started using Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy after I had my baby girl. Six months later I decided to look back at my before photos and all I can say is, “Wow!” I am at a loss for words! I honestly didn't think it was helping me out so much, but it is. It hasn't been instant, but it is happening. If I hadn’t used Mederma® it wouldn’t look as good as it does now. Be persistent because IT WORKS! Thank you Mederma®!

I am a certified dog trainer. I got careless working with a German Shepherd which resulted in a bite to my face just below my left eye. Dog bites typically are not sutured, but the ER doctor that treated my bite was concerned with scarring, so she used two stitches to help close the wound. Then she recommended Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel. As you will see in the before and after pictures, Mederma® worked wonders. Thank you for your fine product.
I started to use Mederma® Scar Cream Plus SPF 30 after having an angry wart removed from my knee. The doctor tried methods of removing the wart that wouldn't leave a scar, but in the end nothing was working so they had to surgically remove it and it left a nasty purple scar. A friend recommended Mederma® Scar Cream Plus SPF 30. I was a bit skeptical at first, for many reasons, but I gave in and gave it a shot. The pictures show the three stages of the scar-to-be. The first one was taken the day the wart was removed, the second after it had healed, and the third after four weeks of using Mederma®. I used it as directed, three times a day and I’m clearly seeing results. I will continue to use the cream and hope that in another four weeks or so it will be even less noticeable. I would most definitely recommend Mederma® Scar Cream Plus SPF 30.
I got my belly button pierced two and a half years ago, right when I turned 18. I did it at a shop in the college town I go to school at, and never thought I'd have problems with it. Big mistake. It was done incorrectly, with too small of a gauge, the wrong type of metal jewelry, the wrong shaped jewelry — it was just a big mess. I had to get it taken out and I was left with an ugly belly button scar that resulted in me barely swimming over the summer because I was so embarrassed. Finally, fed up with the scar, I began using my roommate's Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel. I can already see it working! I'm so excited to be seeing changes and will recommend anyone who has an unflattering scar to try this product. It’s made the scar look better and much lighter and I can't wait to repurchase!
I can't praise Mederma® enough! A few years ago I had my thyroid removed and the surgery left a scar. I started using the original Mederma® as soon as I could and in a couple of months my scar was very difficult to detect. People really have to look closely to see it. Now I am using Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel on a new scar from stomach surgery. Thanks, Mederma®!
I used Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel after surgery on my face for removal of a lesion. The scar was about 1.5-2 cm on my right cheek. After my wound healed, I started using the gel by massaging it in a few times a day — in the morning before putting on makeup and twice in the evening, as soon as I come home and just before going to bed. The gel has a light texture and absorbs into the skin quickly, so I could put makeup on and go to bed without worrying about having marks on the pillows. I’m very happy with the excellent results I got after three months. Take a look at my photos! My friends don’t notice my scar as much, nor can I.
Ren S.Burns, scars-other
I used to have depression and a problem with self-harm. I was burning and cutting myself nearly every day, on my wrists, arms, legs, ankles, and chest. That's become the past. After I got out of that ditch, I wanted to make the scars look better. The pharmacist recommended Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel and I bought it without hesitation. After two months of using it, my scars are less noticeable! It's really wonderful.
