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 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 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.
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.
Last summer, I got attacked by a dog. He ripped through my shirt and managed to tear into the skin on my stomach. It was so painful and the wound took a while to heal. My biggest worry was that I would be left with an ugly scar. To my horror, that is exactly what happened. I used oils, vitamin E, cocoa butter...NOTHING WORKED. Then I remembered a friend telling me she used Mederma® on her stretch marks and decided to try the gel for scars. I'm so happy to see the deep ugly scar looking better, slowly but surely. It is loads lighter in color than it was at first. I wish I had taken a picture of my scar when I first got it so everyone could see the difference now! I recently got a burn, but I'm not worried — Mederma® is there for me!!
I am 53 years old and have a 5-inch scar on my right side below my ribs from my gallbladder being removed 31 years ago. I bought a tube of Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel and applied it. Amazingly, the scar looks better. I now have been applying it to my C-section scar that is also 31 years old. I am anxious to see the results. Thus far I love Mederma®. I would not have expected it to work on such an old scar and it is. I wish I would have taken a before picture so I could show you the progress. It’s amazing what a small tube can do using such a minimal portion. I am truly an amazed customer and would recommend this product to friends. Thank you, Mederma®.
My daughter had an accident at school where she spun around too much, lost her balance, and hit her head on the overhang of a brick windowsill. She had a nasty gash above her eye. The pictures show her 1 week after her stitches were out and then after using Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel for 7 weeks. We definitely saw a noticeable difference in the redness of the scar. I was very hesitant to buy this product at first, but I figured we had nothing to lose. We did not use anything in combination with this product and only applied it once a day as directed. Overall, we are extremely pleased with the results! GREAT JOB, MEDERMA®!
I got burned when I was 2 or 3 years old from hot water, which left a huge burn mark on my right arm. It has made me insecure for as long as I can remember, and I am now 29. I recently started researching ways to improve how the scar looks, as having it removed surgically is costly. I started using Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel. I applied it every day, sometimes 2 times a day, in the morning and at night. After 5 weeks, I noticed a great improvement in my scar. It is still there, but the color has dramatically improved and it is not nearly as red as it was before. I'm excited to see the results after 6 months of using this. I get the daily text reminders to keep me on track and ensure that I remember to apply it. I recently bought 2 large containers of Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel from Wal-Mart. Keep up the great work!
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!
When I was a child I struggled with eczema and took steroids to help with it, but I gained weight, which caused stretch marks on my breasts and upper thighs. I didn't want to be tainted with stretch marks my entire life. I tried everything – cocoa butter, home remedies – nothing worked. Then I found out about Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy. I can barely see my stretch marks anymore. I'm so relieved that I don't have the burden of stretch marks forever on my back. Thank you so much Mederma®!
