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!
Hi Mederma, My name is Melissa and I am 35 years old. I'm mixed black and white and I have had a scar in the middle of my upper chest since I was about 21. It started out very small but has continuously become darker over the years. I am soooo embarrassed by it. People stare as if it's some kind of contagious disease. They even sometimes ask the rudest questions about it I feel like I could cry. I have – a lot. I tried almost every over the counter oil, cream, gel and home remedy I could find. Then, about four months ago I began using your Mederma®. OMG!!! I can't believe the results!!!! The scar is MUCH less noticeable and is getting less and less discolored. I just had to write this email to say Thank You! Your product is changing my life! I am so grateful. I wish I had found it sooner. Sincerely, Melissa
I have a scar on my ankle from an injury. I had 14 stitches and it really became an ugly scar. I've used Mederma® before for small imperfections. I've been using Mederma® for 1 month and there has been a noticeable difference. I’m impressed with the product and will continue to use Mederma® for all my scars.
“I was in a boat accident and had numerous cuts requiring stitches over a good portion of my body. Once the stitches were removed, my Mom started putting Mederma® on the scars. (Now), I am not uncomfortable going out in public, and every day I notice that the scars are becoming less and less noticeable. Thank you for your amazing product.”
I was attacked by an Akita breed dog in the summer of 2007. I had to have 13 stitches in my right cheek and mild plastic surgery. During the healing phase (6 months) I ate lots of fruit and almonds and used Mederma® Scar Cream 3 times a day. Today, almost no one notices what would have been a large scar on my face and people are shocked when I tell them! Mederma® definitely came through and I am grateful!
