I didn't have any problems with stretch marks while I was pregnant with my son, but after I got home from the hospital I noticed I had some stretch marks on the front of my stomach. They made me really unhappy and a little ashamed, actually. My sister actually told me about Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy. I knew Mederma® worked for scars, but I didn't know how it worked with stretch marks. She told me to try it, and she had a coupon that she downloaded from the Mederma® web site. I actually didn't use it until about a year after my son was born because I was still unsure. When I did, I started seeing results within five weeks, which was a lot faster than I thought! By the 12-week mark they were a lot lighter and harder to see! I couldn't feel them as much, either, because they were smoother. It made me really happy to know that there is actually a product out there that works the way it says it will. I know stretch marks are a big deal — not only for women but for men as well. I even recommended it to my brother. I just want to spread the word about Mederma® to whoever I can because I've tried it and it worked for me. Thank you so much for helping me and letting me share my story. If you’re out there and you’re not comfortable with your stretch marks, definitely give Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy a try.
I bought Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy right before I gave birth. I had small stretch marks on my sides and large ones on my inner thighs. Though they are still there, they are a lot duller and not as noticeable. I am very happy with the way the product is working. I have only been using it for six weeks so far.

Throughout my early teens I struggled with my weight. After my weight stabilized and I began dating, I was self-conscious of the stretch marks on my thighs, hips, breasts and the back of my knees. If you can't be comfortable in your own skin, it is very difficult to feel confident. After three months of using Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy, I noticed that my purple and pink stretch marks had become harder to see. The only time I even notice them is when I have a dark tan, and I can no longer feel their difference in texture from the rest of my skin. Thank you, Mederma®!

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®!
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®!
I was very skeptical about using Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy. I tried many other products in the past, and spending more money on something I was not sure would work had me worried. But Mederma® is amazing. My stomach was very “wrinkly” after having my son, but after I started using Mederma® I could see a difference. This is the best product I have ever used for stretch marks. I tell everyone at work how it really did help me. Thank you Mederma®.
The day after I had my first son, I looked in the mirror and thought, “Wow, I will never be able to show my stomach in person again at 23 years old.” I went 40 weeks and 2 days with my son. I didn't have any stretch marks up until the last month. They appeared out of nowhere! They were horrible, itchy, large, disgusting marks that covered my stomach. I used Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy day and night. My results after 2 months were incredible. They are softer, smoother, and less noticeable by far! My before and after photos were taken with the flash on and using the same camera. Thank you, 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®
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 am a mom of 2 children and when I was pregnant I got stretch marks. I never had stretch marks before and I was always used to having perfect skin. So, after I was pregnant and had stretch marks, I was very self conscious of my body and never wanted anyone to see my stretch marks. I used several creams but none of them helped reduce their appearance at all. I finally came across Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy and decided I would give it a shot. I applied the cream twice a day for 4 weeks and noticed a big improvement. You could barely see there were any stretch marks on my stomach and it really made the color of them appear a lot lighter rather than dark purple. Thanks to Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy I feel great in my own skin! I never thought that it would happen again!
Before I had my beautiful daughter I weighed 115 pounds and was really tone. So to start out a pregnancy I was really tiny and bound to get stretch marks. Throughout the pregnancy I used cocoa butter for stretch marks but it didn't help out at all. I weighed 140 pounds and had these awful dark purple tinted stretch marks taking over my entire stomach. I bought Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy and tried it out. It’s been just a few weeks and even my husband noticed that it really reduced the color and appearance. He’s the one that pointed it out. WELL WORTH THE $40
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 have been using Mederma® twice a day for 2 months and I DO see a CHANGE in the color of my stretch marks… I wish I had taken pictures of them for comparison, but believe me... I know what they looked like, as I have been self-conscious of them. Any pictures of them would have been destroyed by now. I had a flat stomach (size 28) and carried a 9-lb. baby… so you can imagine... In my ninth month, even my ob-gyn said, "You look like a WOLF attacked you" (he was right). No matter how much weight I've lost or even if I exercise, I can't wear a bikini because of the stretch marks from just ONE pregnancy. But Mederma® DOES work. I wish I had used it sooner. :)
