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!
Katie GSurgery, Scars-Other
I wanted to say thanks for this wonderful product of yours. I had Thyroid surgery a little over a month ago and as a result had a pretty nasty looking scar afterward. Honestly, it looked like an inch and a half fat red worm had attached itself to my neck. I talked to the Surgeon about using a scar cream and though he didn't specifically recommend doing it, I wanted all the help that I could because I didn't want my grandkids to ask me about that worm attached to my neck for the rest of my life. I have been faithfully using Mederma® Scar Cream daily since my surgery, and I can see a huge improvement in the appearance of my scar and it has only been 6 weeks. The redness is now gone. It has only been 6 weeks and I have a lot of faith that it will drastically reduce into the crease of my neck within a year. I have a friend who had the same type of surgery about 5 years ago, and the scar she has leftover is horrible. I don't know if it was the difference between surgeons who operated on us, or if it is because she didn't use any type of scar cream, but side by side, hers looks terrible. I noticed such great results that I started to use it on another inch and a half scar that was old, from a past surgery removing a large cyst in my wrist. I have seen pretty dramatic results in the month I have been using Mederma® Scar Cream on this scar and the redness has now really lightened. This scar barely shows anymore, and I can only attribute those results to Mederma. I am sold on this product and love to share my successes and thanks with those deserving the praise, so... that is why I am writing this. Thank you so much for this product, and for what it has done to help me look better by reducing the scars that I have. I wish I had thought to take before photos, instead I only have the photos of what my neck looks like at 4 weeks and 6 weeks. I will send in photos in a few more months as well, as things progress. The photo I submitted shows that the scar has closed up and that most swelling is gone on the one side of in only 6 weeks. I look forward to down the road seeing how much it improves from this point.
"I had a surgery on my hand due to an accident. The horrible thick scar is a v-shape 3 inches total length and 1/2 inch wide due to the stitches and depth of the cut. After using the cream for about 3 weeks, I thought happily, it is starting to improve. Later that day my 9-year old grabbed my hand and kissed it and said, "Look Mom, it's almost gone!" It is definitely not gone, but it is definitely not so obvious to the world either! I love this cream!!!"
