This will be a time consuming change. However I didn't know such a wonderful product existed and I am very happy. I am excited to put my Mederma® gel on at night and feel the results on my skin. I love putting on make-up now and seeing my skin smoother in the mirror. It seemed impossible before I used this, but it really has built my confidence. I think another couple months and my acne scars will be so less noticeable that I'll even be confident without any make-up on! :) Coming from a girl who has suffered so long from acne, I really want anyone out there that may be giving up to just try it. If you stick to it you should see improvement. Lastly, a thank you to Mederma®. This experience has been truly amazing.
When I was a teenager my friend’s dog attacked me. I had 7 stiches under my eye and my parents thought I would have to get plastic surgery. I used Mederma® every day for a month and my scar is barely noticeable. I just recently had 10 moles removed and some came back pre-cancerous so they will go deeper to get more tissue. I'm hoping to have the same wonderful results as last time. I also found I was allergic to bandaids during all of this and have some nasty scars from the corners of the bandaids, hopefully Mederma® can help that too!
I had taken a nasty fall trying to rush back to my apartment one night in the winter of 2011. I had sprained my ankle and scraped my knee very bad that I left a trail of blood from the curb at which I had fallen, up the stairs and into my apartment. I was really worried about the deep scrape on my knee. My friend suggested I use Mederma® having recently used it to treat a scar of her own she's had for years. After my wound healed, I gave it a shot and I am so glad I did. In fact, my boyfriend had a similar wound on his knee from a track event around the same time I had my wound. Four months later his scar is still very visible, while my scar is virtually impossible to see!
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!!! :)
I am a firm believer in Mederma®! My sister told me how she swore by it after her surgery so I had nothing to lose by trying it too. I was brutally attacked by a presa canario dog in June 2010; my left arm was barely attached, my forehead looked worse than Harry Potter. The doctors told me to use Mederma® after a few weeks, when the wounds truly closed. I went through so much Mederma® but it was so worth it; almost 16 months later, you can only see the scars on my face and head when I point them out. Although my left arm still has a nasty scar, the progress of the healing of my scar has been wonderful. I still use Mederma® to lessen it. Now I swear by Mederma® and recommend it to everyone I talk to.
I was in a motorcycle accident and I had a broken nose and fractured cheek bones. I look amazing now and it only took about six months of applying Mederma® Scar Gel to my scars after my accident. I am so happy I put it on. I am thinking of using Mederma® for my scar on my chin. It was in the sun so it is a little pink. Other than that I am completely satisfied with Mederma®!! I had several scars and it worked on all of them.
I had an accident in 2010 which involved multiple facial surgeries. The main area involved was above my left eyebrow. This laceration had multiple stitches and resulted in a scar. A friend of my mom bought me Mederma® Scar Cream Plus SPF 30 and said to try it. I did and wow, I am totally amazed at how wonderful it worked. My scar is hardly visible. You have to really look closely and practically get into my face to see any scar. I highly recommend this product to everyone. I love, love, love this product.
“I went to play racquetball with a friend. I just hit a forehand, and he was following through with his backhand. His racket made contact with my forehead, and before I knew it, blood was everywhere on the court. It was a nasty cut, and I thought I would have a terrible scar on my forehead forever. Not a good thing to an 18-year-old girl! When the stitches came out, the doctor recommended Mederma® to rub on my scar. I massaged Mederma® into my forehead a couple times a day. Within a few months it was barely noticeable. I still have a scar on my forehead, which was inevitable with the way I was cut, but it could have been a lot worse without Mederma®. People don't really notice it until I say something. I always tell people to get Mederma® if they have a scar. Thank you, Mederma®!!!”
“I had a horrible, freak accident a few years back. I split my forehead open two inches. It was a huge gouge. I had stitches and felt so out of place with a huge scar going across my forehead. I was told it would heal pretty quickly because it went with my lifelines rather than against. That wasn't good enough for me. I wanted something to help aid in the healing process. Mederma® did the trick! You can barely tell I have a scar. My family and I were amazed at how much better my scar got from using this product. I definitely have told people to go out and buy Mederma® for scars they are embarrassed about.”
“I want to thank you for your wonderful product. I was in a car accident, I was hit by an 18 wheeler. I had lots of injuries and I had a cut above my left eyebrow that was pretty bad. I had surgery on my face and was recommended that I use Mederma®. I used it and it has really helped me, thank you so much.”
On May 14th, 2010 I was playing with our friend’s full grown Labrador when the dog snapped at me and bit me on my face. His canine teeth ripped through my cheek while his upper and lower teeth tore at my skin. I was left with a puncture wound and a two inch gash along with several deep scratches. I was told by the ER doctor that I would have several scars. My niece had used Mederma® for Kids™ for a scratch and had good success with it so I decided to try it on my face. I started using Mederma® Scar Cream Plus SPF 30 immediately after losing my last scab which was about at two weeks. I used it as directed for 10 weeks. I went back to my family physician and she was surprised at my recovery rate. In 10 weeks my scars were a lot less noticeable. I cannot believe how this product works.
As a young adult I fell into the excitement of tattoos and piercings. Some of these markings I have had removed and most left scars. In particular I had 2 dermal piercings in the middle of my chest and when I had them taken out, I was left with little purple dots. My mom told me about Mederma® and I have been using it for about 2 weeks so far. The results are really good even this early into the treatment and I can't wait to see what happens after 8 weeks!!!!! Thank you so much Mederma® for having an unbelievably incredible product!
I had a bad accident as a young girl. When I was in sixth grade I fell on my face while rollerblading and broke my nose and gushed blood. So I went to the emergency room. Almost got stitches yet, I got lucky. Then I had a giant scar in the middle of my nose! And I was like this till my freshman year in high school till I started using Mederma®. It slowly made it look less noticeable and smaller in around three months! My confidence went up!
