I didn't have any problems with stretch marks while I was pregnant with my son, but after I got home from the hospital I noticed I had some stretch marks on the front of my stomach. They made me really unhappy and a little ashamed, actually. My sister actually told me about Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy. I knew Mederma® worked for scars, but I didn't know how it worked with stretch marks. She told me to try it, and she had a coupon that she downloaded from the Mederma® web site. I actually didn't use it until about a year after my son was born because I was still unsure. When I did, I started seeing results within five weeks, which was a lot faster than I thought! By the 12-week mark they were a lot lighter and harder to see! I couldn't feel them as much, either, because they were smoother. It made me really happy to know that there is actually a product out there that works the way it says it will. I know stretch marks are a big deal — not only for women but for men as well. I even recommended it to my brother. I just want to spread the word about Mederma® to whoever I can because I've tried it and it worked for me. Thank you so much for helping me and letting me share my story. If you’re out there and you’re not comfortable with your stretch marks, definitely give Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy a try.
I recently had my thyroid removed due to thyroid cancer. Having a scar in such an odd place (right across my neck) brings lots of questions and it makes me self-conscious to have to explain the whole "cancer thing" to strangers. I want this scar gone fast. Of course I looked up similar scars on the internet and some people still have theirs years later. So I got Mederma®. I’ve only been using Mederma® for a short time and my scar is 80% improved! I can't believe it. Woohoo!
I recently had a surgery to get a mole removed from my face. My plastic surgeon informed me it would leave a scar, but I didn't know what to expect. After the removal I started to notice the scar forming and couldn't believe how horrible it appeared. My surgeon told me once it was fully healed I could start applying Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel to it and I should see results in two months. After the first 4 weeks of using Mederma® I saw amazing results. It has been 4 months since my surgery and my scar is barely noticeable. Thank you Mederma® for making my scar almost vanish! :)
Years ago I was involved a car accident – it was a head-on collision – and even though I had my seatbelt on, my head hit the windshield. Fortunately, I didn’t have any serious head injuries, but the glass shattered and cut me. From the middle of my forehead over on my right side was in pretty bad shape. It almost looked like a bear clawed my face. I also had a broken leg that they had to put a rod in to help it set properly, so I have a big scar on my hip. But my main concern at the time was my face. Everyone worries about their face – we’re all thinking about how we look to other people when we’re out in the world. So six months after the accident I had reconstructive surgery and after the stitches were removed, I used Mederma® religiously, every day, and it worked. I know if I hadn’t used Mederma®, the scars on my forehead would be much more noticeable than they are. You can barely see them today. I’m really telling my story to let you know that if Mederma® worked for me, with how bad my injuries were, you shouldn’t hesitate to use it for any scar you have, no matter how big or small it is. I still keep a tube of Mederma® handy at the house, because I’m always bumping into things and getting little cuts. My husband uses it too, for a scar he has from a shoulder surgery. I hope that if you’re watching this because you or someone you love is self-conscious about a scar you’ll go out and get Mederma® as soon as you can, because it’s one of the best things I ever did for myself.
"When I was pregnant with my first child I experienced a weird allergic reaction that caused me to get really severe itchy stretch marks around the mid section of my stomach. The stretch marks were purple, red and all around my belly button. I tried every cream in the world and nothing helped or prevented me from getting stretch marks. Then I lost a lot of weight which caused my stomach skin to get loose so you can imagine what my stomach looked like at that point. It was awful. Then I saw the commercial for Mederma® Stretch Mark Therapy. I am on my second month and let me tell you it works. Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy changed the color of them from purple/red to more natural. I am very happy. The after picture is using Mederma® for 1 month."
I love Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy and was pleased with my experience. I was skeptical at first, but I do believe it works. I applied it as directed – twice daily for 12 weeks. To remember to apply, I made it a part of my morning/evening beauty routine (however limited it is these days;). I didn’t have terrible stretch marks, but where I did have stretches in my skin it is less noticeable. The areas are softer and blend in with the surrounding areas, especially on my breasts, which is where I did have more stretch marks. I’ve seen a reduction in discoloration, and improvement in texture, enhanced softness and an improvement in overall appearance. I was adamant about using creams/oils during my pregnancy to try to prevent skin damage…and I was pretty successful…but where I did have some stretch marks, Mederma® was able to help fade those back in. I have already recommended it to my sister‐in‐law. She is trying it on stretch marks from her last baby...about 8 year old...we'll see how it works!

OMG! Thank you Mederma®! I had my son while my husband was in Afghanistan so I was always worried about what he would think about my stomach when he got back. Well unfortunately this product came out a little after he got back but it was still worth it because he got to see the progress right along with me. I only used it for 4 weeks because it is fairly expensive but I plan on getting more because the results were so amazing. Thank you so much for giving me a piece of my life back!
