I was prepared to submit my story after the full three months of using Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy, but I couldn't wait! I have been using Mederma® since Dec. 1, 2011 and the results have more than exceeded my expectations. I know it sounds strange, but I felt a softening of the stretch marks on my left arm after a very short time. I took pictures before I started and I cannot wait to hit the three-month mark so I can share my success story. Truly, it is so wonderful to find a product that actually works and to be writing my story instead of reading about someone else and their story. Thank you and I look forward to posting my visual results.
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®.
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 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 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®.

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®!
Ever since I was 15 I started getting stretch marks on my lower back thighs and on the back of my legs behind my knees. I didn't understand why I was getting them because I was so small & petite. It’s so sad to see all your friends wear shorts and cute bikinis when you're young and you’re stuck dressed in winter clothes in the middle of summer. I hated my body and was so insecure. I recently had a baby and barely got any stretch marks on my stomach so I blame the old ones on the pregnancy. I used everything from cocoa butter, vitamin E, to even vapor rub. NOTHING WORKED. Finally while shopping I saw Mederma® & my mom was telling me to get it but in the back of my mind I'm thinking “I'm just gonna be let down”. I decided to use it and I am seeing results, I wish I would've known about this earlier...I'm IN LOVE WITH IT & I'm so excited to be able to wear cute clothing this summer...thanks Mederma®

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!
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 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 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!!!!
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’m 20 years old and ever since I was told not to run due to feet complications I gained a lot of weight. About 2 1/2 months ago, a friend of mine became a personal trainer. I thought to myself that it was the perfect opportunity to get my health back together. At 160lbs, I had stretch marks all over. I couldn't wear shorts because I had stretch marks all on my inner thighs and down onto my calves. While I worked on losing weight I used Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy, thinking the combination of weight loss and using Mederma® would make my stretch marks fade, and guess what...IT DID!! I’m so happy that I can finally wear shorts and feel comfortable in a bikini. But I’m speaking from experience, if you have the same problem I did, trust me, you won't regret it! I love Mederma®. They saved me. I’ve gained back all my confidence!! Alyssa"
