I began using Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel about 2 months ago. This scar has been on my right side of my face since my childhood. I tried so many products and it did not work, so I decided to try Mederma®. I see a big difference in the appearance of the scar. It's smoothing the scar as well as lightening it. I am pleased with this product and would recommend it to anyone.
I slipped & fell on very hard kitchen floor. My foot went sideways and my face burst on the left side, near my eye. I knew I would have a very large scar and remembered using Mederma® years ago. I started using it two weeks after the accident, when the bruising went down. I’m still using Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel after 8 weeks. Now my scar is hardly noticeable; just a thin pink line. Everyone tells me my scar looks better. I am very pleased with the results. Happy that I remembered Mederma®.
I am a 40+ African American female who has been dealing with extremely oily skin my entire life. All my life I've heard that you should moisturize your skin even if you have oily skin. Once I reached 40 I decided I would add moisturizer to my skin care regime. I purchased products specifically designed for African American, oily skin. I realized too late that the products were doing more harm than good. I started developing acne and blackheads all over my skin. I can't control my urge to pick at my skin. I would be in the mirror for hours on end picking at the acne on my face. Before long my face was full of marks and scars. I bought a product designed to fade the marks. The product did fade the spots but it was a cream-based product which added more oil to my skin and I continued to have blackheads and acne. I stopped using everything except for a daily facial wash. My sister mentioned that a friend at work was using Mederma® and she had gotten a sample which seemed to work really well. I was really skeptical about Mederma® and didn’t want to end up with yet another product that didn't work but I tried it anyway. The first thing I liked about the Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel is that it was a gel and not a cream. I've been using if for about 2 months now and it really does work.
I had 2 surgeries and the doctors had to use staples to close both sides of my neck in hopes of less scarring. I was cut on both sides from my ears to my chin. One of the nurses told me as soon as you heal, use Mederma®. It is wonderful. I cannot tell you how wonderful your product is. I really didn't have hope that these scars would ever, ever reduce in appearance. Friends, co-workers and family are shocked at what great results I have gotten. I would have attached my before photos but they are very graphic and something most people cannot look at. Again thank you, thank you for this amazing product.
I was diagnosed with breast cancer in June of 2011; I immediately had a double mastectomy and started the process of reconstruction surgery. Well here it is almost one year later and I just finished the first big surgery, it was 10 1/2 hours long and I have a 16 inch scar from left side of waist to the right side of waist. They essentially took all the fat and blood vessels and skin from my waist and used it to create new breasts. I just started using the Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel, although it looks like I will have to buy stock in the company because I am going through so much LOL. It’s good to read the stories of others who have had success, I am hoping I will be one of them.
I work for a professional water ski team in Wisconsin and during one of my performances I found myself entangled with a ski rope and was dragged behind the boat for several yards. After being taken to shore, I realized the seriousness of my injury, especially when I saw the back of my leg. People recommended Mederma® to me right away to make my scar less noticeable, so I waited for my wound to heal fully and started my use of Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel. I began using the gel around the middle of September and now, a few months later, I am seeing great progress and my scar looks better.
I absolutely LOVE Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel, it works beautifully, and I wish I had tried it long ago! I also wish I had taken before and after photos to show my great results from using Mederma®. I researched online how to treat burn scars, and that's when I came across Mederma®. I've used it all over my face and armpit and I'm amazed at the dramatic, great results I've experienced, and I'm sure it'll improve even more as I keep using the product. THANK YOU Mederma® for saving my face!
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 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 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!
