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.
I have a scar on my ankle from an injury. I had 14 stitches and it really became an ugly scar. I've used Mederma® before for small imperfections. I've been using Mederma® for 1 month and there has been a noticeable difference. I’m impressed with the product and will continue to use Mederma® for all my scars.

I love your product! Mederma® is the only scar cream I have found that works. I never had acne as a teenager, but much to my sorrow I got adult acne really bad right after I turned 30 years old. I also have OCD, and the acne and OCD don't go well together for me! I Pick and pick and pick! I hate myself for doing it but I only go through "MOMENTS" so I used Mederma® to reduce the appearance of the scars. It works every time! Mederma® helped make my skin beautiful again! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
I had chicken pox scars, and my pharmacist recommended Mederma®. I used it as the instructions stated, and within 4 weeks I saw improvement in my scars from the pox. I had scars on my face from where the scabs had formed but from regular use of this the scars are improving and you can hardly tell I even had them. Chicken pox sucks. Thank goodness I found Mederma®.
A year and a half ago I underwent surgery along the right side of my neck. Two weeks after the stitches fell out, and with advice from my doctor, I started using Mederma® Scar Cream Plus SPF 30 as directed on the packaging. I used the cream for six months and wanted to share my pictures. Thank you so very much for this wonderful product. The scar had potential to be very noticeable and could have caused me to become self-conscious, but thankfully it didn’t. Again, thank you!
I burned myself on the oven and it left me with a scar on my forearm! I heard about Mederma® Scar Cream and did some research and this is what I chose to try for my scar. So glad I did because it really works, people! I followed the instructions and within the first 3 weeks I saw my scar starting to look better. I continued using it for another 6 weeks. I’m so satisfied with the results and would definitely use it again, but I hope I won’t ever have to!
I had an accident in 2010 which involved multiple facial surgeries. The main area involved was above my left eyebrow. This laceration had multiple stitches and resulted in a scar. A friend of my mom bought me Mederma® Scar Cream Plus SPF 30 and said to try it. I did and wow, I am totally amazed at how wonderful it worked. My scar is hardly visible. You have to really look closely and practically get into my face to see any scar. I highly recommend this product to everyone. I love, love, love this product.
Hi Mederma, My name is Melissa and I am 35 years old. I'm mixed black and white and I have had a scar in the middle of my upper chest since I was about 21. It started out very small but has continuously become darker over the years. I am soooo embarrassed by it. People stare as if it's some kind of contagious disease. They even sometimes ask the rudest questions about it I feel like I could cry. I have – a lot. I tried almost every over the counter oil, cream, gel and home remedy I could find. Then, about four months ago I began using your Mederma®. OMG!!! I can't believe the results!!!! The scar is MUCH less noticeable and is getting less and less discolored. I just had to write this email to say Thank You! Your product is changing my life! I am so grateful. I wish I had found it sooner. Sincerely, Melissa
I wish I had taken before and after pictures of my burn scar! I was using a hair straightener when I accidentally burned my neck. I was horrified at the burn and knew that it would absolutely leave a scar. I went in search of a scar cream at my local pharmacy and saw several but I decided on the Mederma®Cream with SPF 30. I was doubtful so I did not take pictures or even think I would get the results that I did. In a matter of about three months my 2 inch scar was already fading! I kept using Mederma® three times a day especially after showers and it has now been about 9 months and I ‘m seeing drastic improvement in the appearance of my scar! I have recommended this product to all my friends and would strongly, without a doubt recommend this product to anybody else. It was worth the money and it wasn't even that expensive compared to other products that I saw for retail price of about $60. So if you have an ugly scar that you want to get rid of go out there and BUY it! I will definitely be trying Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy as well!
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!
As a young adult I fell into the excitement of tattoos and piercings. Some of these markings I have had removed and most left scars. In particular I had 2 dermal piercings in the middle of my chest and when I had them taken out, I was left with little purple dots. My mom told me about Mederma® and I have been using it for about 2 weeks so far. The results are really good even this early into the treatment and I can't wait to see what happens after 8 weeks!!!!! Thank you so much Mederma® for having an unbelievably incredible product!
I was attacked by an Akita breed dog in the summer of 2007. I had to have 13 stitches in my right cheek and mild plastic surgery. During the healing phase (6 months) I ate lots of fruit and almonds and used Mederma® Scar Cream 3 times a day. Today, almost no one notices what would have been a large scar on my face and people are shocked when I tell them! Mederma® definitely came through and I am grateful!
