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 got a ton of stretch marks when I was pregnant with my first and I got more with my second. I tried oils and other stuff and nothing seemed to really help. I have been using Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy for a few weeks and I can already see a big difference in my stretch marks. They are becoming smoother and are less visible too. I tell other people about this product. I love it. I have wanted to try it since it came out and I finally got a coupon in the mail and I used it. I am going to buy more of it. I love this stuff. It works so well. I didn’t like my body because of the stretch marks. Thank you for making this product.
I love Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy and was pleased with my experience. I was skeptical at first, but I do believe it works. I applied it as directed – twice daily for 12 weeks. To remember to apply, I made it a part of my morning/evening beauty routine (however limited it is these days;). I didn’t have terrible stretch marks, but where I did have stretches in my skin it is less noticeable. The areas are softer and blend in with the surrounding areas, especially on my breasts, which is where I did have more stretch marks. I’ve seen a reduction in discoloration, and improvement in texture, enhanced softness and an improvement in overall appearance. I was adamant about using creams/oils during my pregnancy to try to prevent skin damage…and I was pretty successful…but where I did have some stretch marks, Mederma® was able to help fade those back in. I have already recommended it to my sister‐in‐law. She is trying it on stretch marks from her last baby...about 8 year old...we'll see how it works!
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. :)
"When I was pregnant with my first child I experienced a weird allergic reaction that caused me to get really severe itchy stretch marks around the mid section of my stomach. The stretch marks were purple, red and all around my belly button. I tried every cream in the world and nothing helped or prevented me from getting stretch marks. Then I lost a lot of weight which caused my stomach skin to get loose so you can imagine what my stomach looked like at that point. It was awful. Then I saw the commercial for Mederma® Stretch Mark Therapy. I am on my second month and let me tell you it works. Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy changed the color of them from purple/red to more natural. I am very happy. The after picture is using Mederma® for 1 month."
Hello Mederma®, I'm 20 years old and I had my first baby Lucy. I was worried about my stretch marks, my baby was huge, and I have a lot of stretch marks. I started to use Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy 1 day after my delivery, and I have been using it for 3 months twice a day, and it works!!! I didn't know that I could say thanks on the website, because I have been saying to my husband that I want to say how thankful I am!!! Thanks you for thinking of what women need for the body after having the most wonderful thing in the world - having a baby!
I am not a lucky woman who did not get stretch marks during pregnancy. I got them bad on my belly and hate how they look. Let’s be honest... my tummy will never be pretty again, but Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy helped me gain some confidence. After only about 6 weeks the marks were lighter and seemed less noticeable. I still haven’t gotten to 12 weeks yet but am excited to see what my stomach looks like when I reach that point in time. I HIGHLY recommend this product. It is (unlike many) totally worth the money! Thank you so much to whoever created this product!
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 was 10 months pregnant and had VERY DARK stretch marks. My sister was trying to minimize her stretch marks so I decided to do the same. I started using Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy about 8 months after I had my son and my skin is back to its normal color. Thanks Mederma®, it was money well spent!

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!
At 21 I was cursed with a stomach full of stretch marks. I was afraid to show my stomach and wear certain clothing. I felt ugly. I tried lotions and cream, but nothing worked. Finally, I saw an ad for Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy and fell in love instantly. I can say it truly works. I love it. Thank you, Mederma®. Now I can have more confidence looking at myself in the mirror.

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.
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!!! ;)
"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."
