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®.

I had my baby boy when I was 20 years old. I am now 21 years old. When I was pregnant I gained 45 lbs. I have lost all my baby weight and more. However, to go along with my perfect, in-shape body, I have UGLY stretch marks on my hips, legs, and belly. Only being 21 I didn’t use lotion or any creams while pregnant. I started getting my stretch marks when I was 7 months pregnant and didn’t care at the time, till now. Well I used everything in the book, oils, butters, I used it all, I used them for 3 months and didn’t see a change. I saw Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy at the drug store and gave it a try. It was more expensive than some other products, but if it did the trick then I didn’t care. I have been using Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy for 3 weeks now, and I LOVE IT! OH MY GOD!! It works. I can see such a change in the color of my stretch marks and the way they feel. Give this stuff a try. Don’t give up if you don’t see change right away. Everything takes time. Nothing happens overnight.
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 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!!!!

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®!

When I was a teenager I had a very bad eating disorder.. So I lost a great amount of weight. When I finally started eating normal again I gained a lot of weight in a short period of time. Therefore I got stretch marks on the middle area of my stomach. I tried almost everything you could think of. Everyone kept telling me to use Cocoa Butter, but that never worked. But the Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy really has helped my stretch marks be less noticeable. I have to look very closely to actually see them. I will continue to keep using this product because it is actually helping me. I am thankful.:‐)
"After having my first child, I ended up getting stretch marks on my inner thighs, hips, and buttocks. I put lotion on my belly the entire time I was pregnant but never thought to put it on these other areas. Being only 21 years old, like any young woman I want to be able to wear my swimsuit with pride. I tried all the expensive creams, cocoa butter, oils, everything. Then I saw that Mederma® was coming out with a product for stretch marks. I was so excited because Mederma® is the most trusted scar product brand out there. I’m on my first bottle and only been using this stuff for about a week and let me tell you this stuff is heaven sent! My inner thighs had really deep striae and my stretch marks on my hips were very dark. I can barely see some of the smaller stretch marks now, and already seeing improvement of my stretch marks between my thighs. I am so happy I found this stuff in the nick of time, right before I have to start wearing a bikini! Definitely use a generous amount of the stuff and rub for about ten minutes; it’s kind of like a “self therapy” treatment. Thanks Mederma®, can’t wait for the full results! Will put up a picture when my 12 weeks are up!"

"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"
"I have to say I was very skeptical about trying Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy. You always see commercials claiming that something works then you come to find out that it doesn't. Well, I was desperate after my pregnancy. I developed AWFUL stretch marks down my legs and thighs. I have been using this product for almost 5 weeks now and my stretch marks have faded so much. I can’t even imagine how great my legs will look after the full 12 week period! I was so self conscious and depressed because I thought my legs would never look good again, but now I have hope and I’m getting my confidence back! Thanks Mederma®!"
“At age 19, I was still wearing training bras, so I decided to treat myself to some breast implants. I was so excited, until about 3 weeks later, when they were covered in stretch marks! I was mortified! Now I was more embarrassed than ever to wear a swimsuit or a dress that had a deep V-neck. I tried Mederma® and started to notice results in about a month. Now it's been 6 months, and I am fearless in what I wear! I can't express how happy I am with Mederma® — a must for stretch marks!”
I am a young woman who has always suffered from stretch marks. They were everywhere, my arms, legs, stomach and back. I don’t have any children and I’m not a very large woman. They have always made me feel like I need to cover up my body. I had suffered from them since I was a teenager. Then in my mid twenties I was relieved to hear about Mederma®’s stretch mark cream. I have been using it for about 4 weeks now and I am seeing fading and evening."
I was skeptical about Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy at first, because I didn't think a lotion could make a significant difference. But I am a believer now! My stretch marks are so reduced that they are barely noticeable. I was so happy with the results. I have seen a reduction in discoloration, an improvement in texture, and my skin is softer. I was surprised to see results so quickly. After just a few weeks, my stretch marks already appeared reduced. I would definitely recommend it because of the results I have seen.
I was 95lbs before I got pregnant and gained weight up to 150 lbs. I thought that because I was so small it would not make a difference with stretch marks.. I mean I never had them before why would I get them now? Wrong. I ended up with marks all over. I did not know what to do or which product to turn to. After reviewing hundreds of products I decided to try Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy. At first I thought it was a joke. But after a month went by I noticed the marks lightened a bit.. and within I think 13 weeks or so they had lightened A LOT. I never share stories online, but I am so happy with the way I look now compared to what I looked like before, because of this product. :)
