“I've had acne on and off throughout my high school years, and I was prone to picking my scars. One particular scar managed to stay a little longer than others, and when I went on vacation it got a lot darker. So I resorted to using cover up and expensive concealers that matched my skin tone. One day, my mom went shopping and came back home and asked me to try Mederma® Cream. I was very self conscious about the scar on my nose, but I was willing to try anything. Using the cream 3 to 4 times daily improved the look of the scar.”
“I am a young mother, and like many others, I was left with very noticeable stretch marks all over my stomach and thighs. When I saw the ad for Mederma® on TV, I knew I had to get it. I started applying it on my stretch marks. After 3 months of using Mederma®, I already see results. I recommend this product to anyone who is trying to reduce the appearance of stretch marks and scars!”
“I was recently laid off from my job. This was a very stressful experience. My skin reacted accordingly. On a weekly basis I would have 2 to 3 cystic pimples. They left scars, and I had to use makeup to cover them. I decided to give Mederma® a shot. I'm using Mederma® to improve reddish scars that were left on my face. It's not often that a product actually does what it says it will do. Thank you.”
“I want to thank you for your wonderful product. I was in a car accident, I was hit by an 18 wheeler. I had lots of injuries and I had a cut above my left eyebrow that was pretty bad. I had surgery on my face and was recommended that I use Mederma®. I used it and it has really helped me, thank you so much.”
“I had a horrible, freak accident a few years back. I split my forehead open two inches. It was a huge gouge. I had stitches and felt so out of place with a huge scar going across my forehead. I was told it would heal pretty quickly because it went with my lifelines rather than against. That wasn't good enough for me. I wanted something to help aid in the healing process. Mederma® did the trick! You can barely tell I have a scar. My family and I were amazed at how much better my scar got from using this product. I definitely have told people to go out and buy Mederma® for scars they are embarrassed about.”
“I had my thyroid removed, and the surgery left a large incision mark across the base of my neck that was red and swollen for over a month. Up until I started using Mederma®, the incision still looked like I was fresh out of the operating room. After using Mederma®, I am left with only a thin pink line at the incision site. Even my coworkers commented on the results.”
“I had rotator cuff repair arthroscopic ally. I began using Mederma® as soon as the bandages were removed. Due to the nature of the surgery, I was only able to reach the first two incision sites for the first two weeks, and after that I was only able to reach the third incision site. The fourth incision site is on the back of my shoulder, and I am just beginning to be able to reach the site to apply Mederma®. I am 8 weeks out from the surgery. The difference in the incision sites is very drastic. Site one and two are barely visible. Site three is subtle, and site four is very visible. It's great to know there's a product such as yours out there.”
“As a child and teen I had a disgusting habit of picking sores. This led to dozens of round scars on my legs. As an adult I didn't wear shorts, skirts, or bathing suits. I bought Mederma® at a pharmacy and figured I would try it. I started using it and the scars are not gone but the discoloration has improved and they are less noticeable. I will keep using it!”
“My wife brought Mederma® home about 4 months ago for a new surgical scar. I was very skeptical that an over the counter product would have any effect on the new scar, much less on an old scar. I was wrong! This product works just as claimed. I began using it on a scar on my chin from 20+ years ago that has made shaving very difficult. I was shocked, within a few days, I noticed it was softer. Within two weeks, the scar was getting flatter. It's been about 3-4 months now, and the scar looks so much better that I can shave normally now. I have recommended Mederma® many times already. And, will continue to do so.”
“I was involved in a car accident. The car hit me from the side, causing my airbags to deploy. I received horrible burn scars on the inside of my left arm. My dermatologist suggested Mederma®. Using Mederma for about six weeks, I noticed improvement. Thanks to the inventors of this product! What would I have done without it being a part of my life?”
“I was having trouble feeling good about myself without make-up because of post acne marks. They were highly visible, and I hated them. It was hard to have this problem, because I was involved in modeling. When I was introduced to Mederma®, I wondered if it would really work. In less than one month, I noticed results. It's crazy how it really makes a difference. Now with or without make-up, I feel good about myself, and I'm able to show my true self at auditions.” Post acne marks are much less noticeable.
“I went to play racquetball with a friend. I just hit a forehand, and he was following through with his backhand. His racket made contact with my forehead, and before I knew it, blood was everywhere on the court. It was a nasty cut, and I thought I would have a terrible scar on my forehead forever. Not a good thing to an 18-year-old girl! When the stitches came out, the doctor recommended Mederma® to rub on my scar. I massaged Mederma® into my forehead a couple times a day. Within a few months it was barely noticeable. I still have a scar on my forehead, which was inevitable with the way I was cut, but it could have been a lot worse without Mederma®. People don't really notice it until I say something. I always tell people to get Mederma® if they have a scar. Thank you, Mederma®!!!”
I had a bad accident as a young girl. When I was in sixth grade I fell on my face while rollerblading and broke my nose and gushed blood. So I went to the emergency room. Almost got stitches yet, I got lucky. Then I had a giant scar in the middle of my nose! And I was like this till my freshman year in high school till I started using Mederma®. It slowly made it look less noticeable and smaller in around three months! My confidence went up!

I was recommended Mederma® Scar Cream plus SPF 30 by my surgeon when I had breast surgery. He gave me some trial size packets and I decided to buy Mederma® Scar Cream I saw amazing results!! I recommend this product to anyone who has ever dealt with scars I know it’s expensive, but anything is worth your self-confidence!!
On May 14th, 2010 I was playing with our friend’s full grown Labrador when the dog snapped at me and bit me on my face. His canine teeth ripped through my cheek while his upper and lower teeth tore at my skin. I was left with a puncture wound and a two inch gash along with several deep scratches. I was told by the ER doctor that I would have several scars. My niece had used Mederma® for Kids™ for a scratch and had good success with it so I decided to try it on my face. I started using Mederma® Scar Cream Plus SPF 30 immediately after losing my last scab which was about at two weeks. I used it as directed for 10 weeks. I went back to my family physician and she was surprised at my recovery rate. In 10 weeks my scars were a lot less noticeable. I cannot believe how this product works.
