THEIR JOURNEYS, THEIR STORIES
Making noticeable scars and stretch marks less noticeable is about more than science and skin. It’s about a transformation in how people feel about themselves. At the end of that journey, people want to share their happiness. Mederma® users have some great stories about why they chose Mederma® and what happened when they did. Adventurous stories, sad stories, funny stories, love stories, stories of bravery and stories of success.

I slipped & fell on very hard kitchen floor. My foot went sideways and my face burst on the left side, near my eye. I knew I would have a very large scar and remembered using Mederma® years ago. I started using it two weeks after the accident, when the bruising went down. I’m still using Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel after 8 weeks. Now my scar is hardly noticeable; just a thin pink line. Everyone tells me my scar looks better. I am very pleased with the results. Happy that I remembered Mederma®.
I work for a professional water ski team in Wisconsin and during one of my performances I found myself entangled with a ski rope and was dragged behind the boat for several yards. After being taken to shore, I realized the seriousness of my injury, especially when I saw the back of my leg. People recommended Mederma® to me right away to make my scar less noticeable, so I waited for my wound to heal fully and started my use of Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel. I began using the gel around the middle of September and now, a few months later, I am seeing great progress and my scar looks better.
After my surgery on my wrist I was so worried that I would have a huge ugly scar to keep forever. People would always notice it while I was working and would ask what happened to me. I remembered seeing commercials about Mederma® so I decided I would give it a try. I used it for a few months and it really did help. People no longer notice it while I'm working. It's not gone completely but Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel sure helped out a lot. My scar looks so much better than it used to. I'm not nearly as self-conscious about it like I used to be. My boyfriend just started using it on some of his scars and he's already seeing results.
At age 21 I underwent surgery, leaving a two-inch incision across the front of my neck. I was nervous the scar would be very noticeable, so I started using Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel as soon as I was healed. I am very happy with the results! The redness and thickness of my scar have decreased significantly since I started using Mederma®. I would recommend this product to anyone who has a surgery scar.
I began using Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel about 2 months ago. This scar has been on my right side of my face since my childhood. I tried so many products and it did not work, so I decided to try Mederma®. I see a big difference in the appearance of the scar. It's smoothing the scar as well as lightening it. I am pleased with this product and would recommend it to anyone.
Pam RAccidents, Surgery
I stepped in some ant spray my husband had spilled in our garage and broke both my legs just below the knees. My right leg required surgery and lots of hardware. My orthopedic surgeon did a great job, but ortho's are not known for their pretty work like plastic surgeons. I started using Mederma® as soon as my incision was healed. I couldn't be happier with the results and I'm touting Mederma® every opportunity I get. Thank you so much for creating such a great product. P.S. I'm walking!!! :)
