"Ever since I was a young teenager I wanted a fuller chest. I was tired of my figure being described as boyish, not to mention I had a breast deformity that only made me more uncomfortable. So I finally took the plunge and got a breast augmentation. I am so happy with the results but the only thing that kept me from being completely happy was a few stretch marks that popped up about a month after the surgery. I started researching creams and therapies to use on them and just kept coming up short. Then one day, I saw a commercial for Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy and just knew that it was going to be worth trying. After about three weeks I really started to see them smooth and lighten up. I'm at the ten week mark now and I can't believe the difference. The texture of the stretch marks has smoothed over . . The color has gone from that dark red-ish purple to just a few shades away from my skin tone and I am very fair skinned. It really isn't another so called miracle cream. It works. It has helped turn this whole body transformation into something beautiful for me."
I have just been using Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy for a short time, I am faithfully using it as directed, and I can say that it is doing its magic. I am so happy that I will be able to go to the beach soon and not be so insecure because of the stretch marks I've gotten over a period of time due to weight gain & loss. They are less visible. Yes, I think that it is worth in investing in Mederma®.
From my pregnancy I got so many stretch marks on my stomach, thighs, and especially my hips. I was so embarrassed by my stretch marks that I didn't even want my husband to see me. Although I love my new baby boy and wouldn't trade him, the changes pregnancy made to my body made me feel so embarrassed and depressed. I thought there was nothing I could do to help reduce their appearance until I tried Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy. Now I am writing this review because I am so satisfied that I think every woman deserves to know about Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy and that it actually works. I've only been using Mederma® for a few weeks and looking at my stretch marks today, I cannot believe the difference it made. I am definitely going to keep using this product. Thank you, Mederma®! You gave me my confidence back and now even after my pregnancy I feel beautiful!
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.
"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."
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.
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!
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 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 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.
Hello Mederma®, I'm 20 years old and I had my first baby Lucy. I was worried about my stretch marks, my baby was huge, and I have a lot of stretch marks. I started to use Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy 1 day after my delivery, and I have been using it for 3 months twice a day, and it works!!! I didn't know that I could say thanks on the website, because I have been saying to my husband that I want to say how thankful I am!!! Thanks you for thinking of what women need for the body after having the most wonderful thing in the world - having a baby!
I gained 65 pounds in two months due to medication I was taking. I had stretch marks on my thighs and side. I have very dark skin, so my marks were even darker. After just one month of using Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy they have started to improve on my thighs. My side still has some but they are not bad as they once were. I also used Mederma® Scar Gel on a surgical scar. It works great and I'll always recommend it to anyone.
I got stretch marks on my inner thighs from losing and gaining weight too quickly. I was watching TV and saw the ad for Mederma® and saw the success stories other girls had so I went out and bought it. My stretch marks were pretty deep, big and really red at times, but after using Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy twice a day for 2 months I have already noticed a big difference. This really does work and now I don’t have to feel like I need to hide my thighs anymore. It does wonders.

I bought Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy about a month ago and it has been working wonders! I was very skeptical about buying this product in the first place because of the price but I was so sick of looking at my stretch marks and also with summer coming up I want to feel confident. The stretch marks aren't completely gone, but the color has reduced dramatically! I am very impressed with this product and when my bottle runs out, I'm definitely buying another one!
