After I had my son my stretch marks were deep, purple, and all over the place. After my husband left for Iraq I set a few personal goals: to drop my pregnancy weight and minimize my stretch marks. Once I dropped my weight however, my stretch marks became even more noticeable. I tried many different products and even talked to a doctor about getting a tummy tuck. Then I saw a commercial for Mederma®'s Stretch Marks Therapy. I went out the next day and bought a bottle. It's been a month now and I am thrilled at how well it's been working. My stretch marks are less noticeable. I can't wait until my husband comes home next month to see his new confident wife. Thanks Mederma®!
I have 3 children under 5. A 5-year-old and 3-year-old twins. At the end of my pregnancy I stretched so far I couldn’t touch the end of my belly. I am 5’1”. After my twins were born the stretch marks were awful. I’ve been using Mederma® for weeks and I can really see results!! I didn’t think it would work but I could show pre and post pregnancy pictures! (As embarrassing as it might be) Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy really works!!!!
I have never written anything about a product. But I felt I had to tell about this product! I have four children and I just figured there would not be anything I could do about my stretch marks. I have them on my breast, top part of my thigh and of course my stomach. I have tried everything to get rid of them. As I was shopping I happen to see the Mederma box, I read it and I said to myself, “let’s try it.” After a little while, I started to notice an improvement in the appearance of my scars everywhere! I cried, I thought that nothing could ever help me. I can’t wait to see how it will progress! Thank You so much!

I just had my baby 2 months ago and I never thought I would get stretch marks because almost during my whole pregnancy I didn't get any, until that last month hit. I started to notice that I was getting dark purple ones on my sides and mid stomach and I never scratched. I tried oils and not much changed. I bought Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy 4 weeks ago and man I love it. It's a life saver. It's really working and because of that, I feel good again. I'm not worrying if my shirt lifts up or not. In my opinion, there is no doubt this is the best treatment for stretch marks.
Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy is amazing to say the least. I did a lot of research on it before I bought it. In some reviews people were claiming that Mederma® employees were writing the reviews just to make people want to buy it. I promise you that I am not an employee, nor do I know someone who is. I swear by this product. After I had my son, my stomach looked like someone had dug their nails down my stomach. Now my stretch marks are very light and hardly noticeable. I am extremely self-conscious so having stretch marks was unbearable. I am 100% satisfied with this product and will continue to recommend it to everyone I know. Thank you, Mederma®.
From middle school to high school I struggled with seeing myself as "beautiful." I hated my body so much that I hardly ever ate, 1-2 meals a day if I was lucky. Sometimes none at all. I never got anywhere dangerous, but I was somewhere around 120lbs in high school, which is about -20 of my natural body weight. Anyway, when I got to my sophomore year, I began eating regularly and living a normal life. Slowly but surely I started to pack on the pounds. By the time I was 18, I was a shocking 183 pounds!! Highest I've ever been. Laziness, the comfort my boyfriend and I have with each other, lack of exercise and never cooking a fresh-balanced meal are to blame. I have stretch marks on my upper breasts, sides of hips, under arms, lower tummy, and inner thighs. Now that I am down to a healthy 139, I couldn't bear to be caught in a swimsuit. I saw commercials on TV for Mederma® and began using it on all my stretch marks. The ones on my chest have gone from purple to the color of my skin and have become less prominent. The ones on my midsection are hardly noticeable, and the ones on my thighs are beginning to lighten!! I have been using Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy for 2.5 months and highly recommend this product!! I was able to lose weight with my diet and exercise, and Mederma® has restored the confidence I have in my image. Thank you! :)
I'm an athlete and when I hit puberty my body changed and my muscles got bigger. I got stretch marks on the inside of my legs caused by the rapid muscle gain. The stretch marks were purple and red and I was ashamed of my body. Thanks to Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy I can now go to the beach and not worry about my legs. Thanks Mederma® :)
I love Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy, it really works. I had a lot of stretch marks on my stomach after having a baby and this lotion is the best. I love it. It's only been few weeks and I already see results. I applied this lotion twice a day, morning and night. It works, you just have to give it some time and use it twice a day.

I've been avoiding bathing suits and the beach ever since I got stretch marks. I think my embarrassment over my stretch marks contributed to my gaining a lot of weight... Because what difference would it make if I were slender? I still would be ashamed of my body. I wasn't sure if anything could improve them. So, to test the product I applied the cream to only the right half of my stomach and my right breast. Just to make sure there was no false difference in appearance, I put regular moisturizer on the left half of my stomach and left breast. After a few weeks On day 25, I could see a visible difference between the right and the left side. Now I am applying Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy to both sides. Can't wait to see the difference by the end of 12 weeks! The best part is that my skin is SMOOTHER. Thanks.
Hi my name is Mai. I'm only 24 and I started having stretch marks at a very young age. I hated that I couldn’t wear cute lingerie because I had so many stretch marks on my hips. I saw Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy at Wal-Mart for the first time. So I decided to give it a try. So far my skin is getting softer around my hips and my boyfriend loves how this product doesn't have a stinky smell. I can't wait to see the full results after 12 weeks. Wish me luck!!! ;)
From my pregnancy I got so many stretch marks on my stomach, thighs, and especially my hips. I was so embarrassed by my stretch marks that I didn't even want my husband to see me. Although I love my new baby boy and wouldn't trade him, the changes pregnancy made to my body made me feel so embarrassed and depressed. I thought there was nothing I could do to help reduce their appearance until I tried Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy. Now I am writing this review because I am so satisfied that I think every woman deserves to know about Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy and that it actually works. I've only been using Mederma® for a few weeks and looking at my stretch marks today, I cannot believe the difference it made. I am definitely going to keep using this product. Thank you, Mederma®! You gave me my confidence back and now even after my pregnancy I feel beautiful!
I had a lot of stretch marks from pregnancy. Then from gaining weight. I lost all the weight and then had a tummy tuck. Although most of my stretch marks were gone I still had quite a bit. My plastic surgeon said, “use Mederma®”. I was very skeptical but she said, “just try it.” So I did and I love the results. I feel so good that I can’t stop looking to make sure they don’t come back. I show everyone… Thank you Mederma®.
I have been using Mederma® twice a day for 2 months and I DO see a CHANGE in the color of my stretch marks… I wish I had taken pictures of them for comparison, but believe me... I know what they looked like, as I have been self-conscious of them. Any pictures of them would have been destroyed by now. I had a flat stomach (size 28) and carried a 9-lb. baby… so you can imagine... In my ninth month, even my ob-gyn said, "You look like a WOLF attacked you" (he was right). No matter how much weight I've lost or even if I exercise, I can't wear a bikini because of the stretch marks from just ONE pregnancy. But Mederma® DOES work. I wish I had used it sooner. :)
Hi my name is Elysia and I'm 18. I got pregnant at the age of seventeen and I felt I would never be able to wear a swimsuit again. I had worse stretch marks than anyone I knew, even worse than my mother. I saw Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy at the store and decided “why not?” I used it for two weeks, saw nothing, then thought, “What am I going to lose?” I then tried rubbing it in and put pressure on while applying. I worked it in and did this seriously. I will be going to pierce my belly button - that's how well it worked. My stretch marks are 8 months old. Just be persistent with it what is there to lose right?
I have 3 children aged 6 years, 19 months and 3 months. The first two gave me some stretch marks on my inner thighs and a few on my tummy. My 3rd however it really changed the look of my tummy and I was so upset about it. I figured, "Hey I am 26 so my skin should bounce back on its own and the marks should not be so bad," After I stopped being in denial about my horrible looking tummy I started using Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy. I did not expect it to work but I used it just as directed. Oh how I wish I would have taken before and after pics. One stretch mark looked like a C section scar. A nurse literally asked me, "When was your C-Section done?" I was horrified to see it after I delivered. Now after using Mederma® it is barely even noticeable. I am in love with this product and will continue to use it on my other trouble areas. LOVE IT!!
