I am not a lucky woman who did not get stretch marks during pregnancy. I got them bad on my belly and hate how they look. Let’s be honest... my tummy will never be pretty again, but Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy helped me gain some confidence. After only about 6 weeks the marks were lighter and seemed less noticeable. I still haven’t gotten to 12 weeks yet but am excited to see what my stomach looks like when I reach that point in time. I HIGHLY recommend this product. It is (unlike many) totally worth the money! Thank you so much to whoever created this product!
I'm 19 years old and I have had really terrible stretch marks on my thighs for the past 3-4 years. I was so embarrassed, I couldn't wear skirts, dresses, shorts, etc. because they were so bad. I was very skeptical about using this product because I have used a number of other products, like oils, cocoa butter, etc., and they just didn't work. I've used Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy for 4 weeks and I can't believe that it is actually working already. I have seen my stretch marks go from very dark to very light. They are barely noticeable now. I can't wait to see how they will look in 12 weeks. If you want to do something about your stretch marks this is the product you should use. I am not exaggerating. This product really works and you will be happy about your results like I was.
I am 19 years old. I got stretch marks when I was ten years old, but I have only been using Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy for about 3 weeks. I have already seen improvement. I can’t wait to see how it’s going to turn out after 4 months. I love this stuff and it smells good. I Recommend it. Great product.
I started noticing random stretch marks on my breasts one day and I didn't think much of them, nor did I even consider them actually being stretch marks... I assumed that the marks would eventually just go away, and that maybe they were just temporary marks or something. However, the marks did not fade - they became more and more prominent and visible, and this worried me. I spoke with my mom about it and she said it might have something to do with my fluctuating weight, because I used to be very athletic and my lack of exercise was increasing. So, my mom bought me Mederma Stretch Marks Therapy. I continued to use it and I made sure I didn't forget to apply it at least once a day. It's been about 2 months and I am finally seeing visible improvement and the stretch marks have definitely improved. I am so happy because not only am I young and thin, I'm also petite so I felt that having stretch marks on my breasts was the strangest and most embarrassing thing to happen to my body. I was feeling very self-conscious whenever I wore a low-cut shirt and looked down at my cleavage and saw my stretch marks. I am so glad I didn't give up on this product. I'm very happy with it and I will continue to use it! Thank you so much, Mederma®!!

OMG! Thank you Mederma®! I had my son while my husband was in Afghanistan so I was always worried about what he would think about my stomach when he got back. Well unfortunately this product came out a little after he got back but it was still worth it because he got to see the progress right along with me. I only used it for 4 weeks because it is fairly expensive but I plan on getting more because the results were so amazing. Thank you so much for giving me a piece of my life back!
I love Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy and was pleased with my experience. I was skeptical at first, but I do believe it works. I applied it as directed – twice daily for 12 weeks. To remember to apply, I made it a part of my morning/evening beauty routine (however limited it is these days;). I didn’t have terrible stretch marks, but where I did have stretches in my skin it is less noticeable. The areas are softer and blend in with the surrounding areas, especially on my breasts, which is where I did have more stretch marks. I’ve seen a reduction in discoloration, and improvement in texture, enhanced softness and an improvement in overall appearance. I was adamant about using creams/oils during my pregnancy to try to prevent skin damage…and I was pretty successful…but where I did have some stretch marks, Mederma® was able to help fade those back in. I have already recommended it to my sister‐in‐law. She is trying it on stretch marks from her last baby...about 8 year old...we'll see how it works!
"When I was pregnant with my first child I experienced a weird allergic reaction that caused me to get really severe itchy stretch marks around the mid section of my stomach. The stretch marks were purple, red and all around my belly button. I tried every cream in the world and nothing helped or prevented me from getting stretch marks. Then I lost a lot of weight which caused my stomach skin to get loose so you can imagine what my stomach looked like at that point. It was awful. Then I saw the commercial for Mederma® Stretch Mark Therapy. I am on my second month and let me tell you it works. Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy changed the color of them from purple/red to more natural. I am very happy. The after picture is using Mederma® for 1 month."
At 21 I was cursed with a stomach full of stretch marks. I was afraid to show my stomach and wear certain clothing. I felt ugly. I tried lotions and cream, but nothing worked. Finally, I saw an ad for Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy and fell in love instantly. I can say it truly works. I love it. Thank you, Mederma®. Now I can have more confidence looking at myself in the mirror.
I got a ton of stretch marks when I was pregnant with my first and I got more with my second. I tried oils and other stuff and nothing seemed to really help. I have been using Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy for a few weeks and I can already see a big difference in my stretch marks. They are becoming smoother and are less visible too. I tell other people about this product. I love it. I have wanted to try it since it came out and I finally got a coupon in the mail and I used it. I am going to buy more of it. I love this stuff. It works so well. I didn’t like my body because of the stretch marks. Thank you for making this product.
“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'm an athlete and when I hit puberty my body changed and my muscles got bigger. I got stretch marks on the inside of my legs caused by the rapid muscle gain. The stretch marks were purple and red and I was ashamed of my body. Thanks to Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy I can now go to the beach and not worry about my legs. Thanks Mederma® :)
I have 3 children aged 6 years, 19 months and 3 months. The first two gave me some stretch marks on my inner thighs and a few on my tummy. My 3rd however it really changed the look of my tummy and I was so upset about it. I figured, "Hey I am 26 so my skin should bounce back on its own and the marks should not be so bad," After I stopped being in denial about my horrible looking tummy I started using Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy. I did not expect it to work but I used it just as directed. Oh how I wish I would have taken before and after pics. One stretch mark looked like a C section scar. A nurse literally asked me, "When was your C-Section done?" I was horrified to see it after I delivered. Now after using Mederma® it is barely even noticeable. I am in love with this product and will continue to use it on my other trouble areas. LOVE IT!!
I was 10 months pregnant and had VERY DARK stretch marks. My sister was trying to minimize her stretch marks so I decided to do the same. I started using Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy about 8 months after I had my son and my skin is back to its normal color. Thanks Mederma®, it was money well spent!

"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 just had my baby 2 months ago and I never thought I would get stretch marks because almost during my whole pregnancy I didn't get any, until that last month hit. I started to notice that I was getting dark purple ones on my sides and mid stomach and I never scratched. I tried oils and not much changed. I bought Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy 4 weeks ago and man I love it. It's a life saver. It's really working and because of that, I feel good again. I'm not worrying if my shirt lifts up or not. In my opinion, there is no doubt this is the best treatment for stretch marks.
