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®.
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®
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 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!

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®!
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. :)
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®.
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!!!!

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.
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!
