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!
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!!
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!
Hi my name is Mai. I'm only 24 and I started having stretch marks at a very young age. I hated that I couldn’t wear cute lingerie because I had so many stretch marks on my hips. I saw Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy at Wal-Mart for the first time. So I decided to give it a try. So far my skin is getting softer around my hips and my boyfriend loves how this product doesn't have a stinky smell. I can't wait to see the full results after 12 weeks. Wish me luck!!! ;)
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!
Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy is amazing to say the least. I did a lot of research on it before I bought it. In some reviews people were claiming that Mederma® employees were writing the reviews just to make people want to buy it. I promise you that I am not an employee, nor do I know someone who is. I swear by this product. After I had my son, my stomach looked like someone had dug their nails down my stomach. Now my stretch marks are very light and hardly noticeable. I am extremely self-conscious so having stretch marks was unbearable. I am 100% satisfied with this product and will continue to recommend it to everyone I know. Thank you, Mederma®.

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.
From middle school to high school I struggled with seeing myself as "beautiful." I hated my body so much that I hardly ever ate, 1-2 meals a day if I was lucky. Sometimes none at all. I never got anywhere dangerous, but I was somewhere around 120lbs in high school, which is about -20 of my natural body weight. Anyway, when I got to my sophomore year, I began eating regularly and living a normal life. Slowly but surely I started to pack on the pounds. By the time I was 18, I was a shocking 183 pounds!! Highest I've ever been. Laziness, the comfort my boyfriend and I have with each other, lack of exercise and never cooking a fresh-balanced meal are to blame. I have stretch marks on my upper breasts, sides of hips, under arms, lower tummy, and inner thighs. Now that I am down to a healthy 139, I couldn't bear to be caught in a swimsuit. I saw commercials on TV for Mederma® and began using it on all my stretch marks. The ones on my chest have gone from purple to the color of my skin and have become less prominent. The ones on my midsection are hardly noticeable, and the ones on my thighs are beginning to lighten!! I have been using Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy for 2.5 months and highly recommend this product!! I was able to lose weight with my diet and exercise, and Mederma® has restored the confidence I have in my image. Thank you! :)
I was prepared to submit my story after the full three months of using Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy, but I couldn't wait! I have been using Mederma® since Dec. 1, 2011 and the results have more than exceeded my expectations. I know it sounds strange, but I felt a softening of the stretch marks on my left arm after a very short time. I took pictures before I started and I cannot wait to hit the three-month mark so I can share my success story. Truly, it is so wonderful to find a product that actually works and to be writing my story instead of reading about someone else and their story. Thank you and I look forward to posting my visual results.
"My oldest daughter, ten year old Brianna, suffered from cold sores as a young child. Unfortunately, one of them did not heal correctly; thus leaving a scar beneath her lower lip. Luckily, I came across Mederma® for Kids™ which reduced the appearance of the scarring. A few months ago, my six year old daughter Shea injured her left temple while visiting her grandmother. A visit to the Emergency Room consequently led to several stitches. I relied on Mederma® for Kids™ once more. Fortunately, this trusty product pulled through yet again. As a mother of two aspiring actresses, I must say Mederma® for Kids™ not only reduces the appearance of scars, but also gives back a sense of confidence to children and adults of all ages. I have since started using your product on my stretch marks. Though once skeptical of such, I now hold great faith in Mederma®. Thanks a ton. Keep up the good work."
I began using Mederma® Scar Gel five years ago after an elective surgery and I could not believe how little my scars were visible after using it. I still brag about Mederma® and show people my scars, or lack thereof. When I became pregnant I knew that stretch marks were inevitable so I began using a different brand stretch mark cream from the very beginning. Deep dark stretch marks still showed up so I switched when I learned that Mederma® made a cream specifically for stretch marks. I didn't expect much, however, because I knew that there wasn't much that I could do. It has now been 10 weeks since I began using Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy and my stretch marks are much less visible! I cannot believe how quick and effective this product has been. I only wish that I would have taken before and after pictures but I really did not think that it was possible to make stretch marks look better. I thought my bikini days were long gone but now I see that there is hope after all. I feel so much more confident and optimistic because Mederma® worked for me. Thank you for this product! I suggest this to everyone now!

I got stretch marks after being pregnant and I've been hiding my belly. I was very skeptical when I decided to give Mederma® a try and it has changed my whole life. The stretch marks are about 70% gone and I wish I had before and after pictures but because of my skepticism I didn't take pictures. I also had a total abdominal hysterectomy in February and the scar on my belly is also fading after using Mederma® Scar Gel since March (twice a day). I used Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy for 3 months. I love what Mederma® has done for me. I will be wearing a bikini to the beach this summer.
Where do I start? OK, when I was about 12 I took a really big digger on pavement. I was racing one of my friends, I tripped and fell and basically skidded on one spot of my face (right side of forehead above eyebrow). When it finally healed it left a nasty scar, and being a girl- we don't want things marring up our faces. So my mom told me to try Mederma®, so I did and behold it worked beyond my expectations. To this day I tell the story and people ask me, “where?” And I point to this little white line on my forehead (2 centimeters long and hair wide). It worked for my scar (even now people don't believe me when I tell them I was soaking up rolls of paper towels with blood lol). But that's ok!! My next review is a similar success story. I have a very tiny frame but I am under a lot of stress so my weight is always going up and down - plus I grew one foot in one year when going through puberty. So I had some stretch marks one my hip/butt/love handle area. I was panicking about swimsuit season so I went directly to Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy (because it worked in the past) and sure enough it did. The appearance of my stretch marks has improved a lot.
