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."

AMAZING!!! This stuff works. I am a 21 year old mother of one. I gained around 45 lbs with my son. I started getting stretch marks around my 7th month of being pregnant. I didn’t care then but after having the baby and losing all the weight and getting back into shape I started to care more. I used everything in the book. Oils, cocoa lotions. EVERYTHING and nothing worked. My friend told me about Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy. I started using it right away and let me tell you this stuff is AMAZING! I started seeing an improvement in the color of my Stretch Marks after just 4 Weeks. If you have the same problem I had. Change it. People say once you have stretch marks you have to just deal with it. Well they are wrong because Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy will change how you feel about your body. Give this stuff a try. Put the Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy where you have Stretch Marks for the full 12 weeks and you will be so HAPPY and just remember this nothing works over night you might not see a change for a few weeks or so but give Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy a chance!

My sister asked me today if your product was worth it... I told her for sure! Then I saw the online board and figured I’d share my story. I, like so many woman, did everything right (ate healthy from home, never fast food, worked out, even walked a half marathon at 6 months. I have always been active but I just started putting on pound after pound, week after week. At first there were fears I would have gestational diabetes and other issues, but I had a perfect (literally perfect) pregnancy. I passed two sugar tests with a 113 so my Dr. told me not to worry, it happens, but I gained about 77 pounds, I was worried. I knew that I would have stretch marks, in certain light I could even see them forming. I went from 155lbs to 232lbs the day of delivery (37 1/2 weeks). I ended up having to have a C-Section to boot. Afterwards my stretch marks were so bad they were offensive, obscene even, they were just terrible. It was depressing; I would hide my belly from my then fiancé and worry that when working out/changing someone would notice. For a while I even quit going, it was too much. I had never been self-conscious before but I also never had a red road map all over my belly. I decided to buy Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy after trying Vitamin E/A and all lotions in between. I went from red to white marks and my purple C-Section scar turned red. By the 4th week you’d have to know I just had a baby. Minus that small pooch, you can barely even see my C-scar. Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy saved my sanity and my self-esteem; it truly is a blessing to me. It is expensive compared to other products, however when you consider what it does, remind yourself it’s okay to splurge for this item, then when your stretch marks start to become less noticeable it will be worth every cent! I just wanted to share my story, I know I read reviews before buying, and just knowing that real people like me have gotten real results helped me decide to buy. Remember they give $4 off if you print the coupon. I found it at Walgreens with the lotions, not with the scar cream. A side note, I did use the entire bottle, I did not let it go to waste. It is tough to find any product that you like enough to completely finish so quickly. Good luck everyone! Several months have passed since I used this product, and thanks to Mederma and a lot of hard work, I was able to reduce the marks and lose all of the excess weight.
I began using Mederma® Scar Gel five years ago after an elective surgery and I could not believe how little my scars were visible after using it. I still brag about Mederma® and show people my scars, or lack thereof. When I became pregnant I knew that stretch marks were inevitable so I began using a different brand stretch mark cream from the very beginning. Deep dark stretch marks still showed up so I switched when I learned that Mederma® made a cream specifically for stretch marks. I didn't expect much, however, because I knew that there wasn't much that I could do. It has now been 10 weeks since I began using Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy and my stretch marks are much less visible! I cannot believe how quick and effective this product has been. I only wish that I would have taken before and after pictures but I really did not think that it was possible to make stretch marks look better. I thought my bikini days were long gone but now I see that there is hope after all. I feel so much more confident and optimistic because Mederma® worked for me. Thank you for this product! I suggest this to everyone now!

I got stretch marks after being pregnant and I've been hiding my belly. I was very skeptical when I decided to give Mederma® a try and it has changed my whole life. The stretch marks are about 70% gone and I wish I had before and after pictures but because of my skepticism I didn't take pictures. I also had a total abdominal hysterectomy in February and the scar on my belly is also fading after using Mederma® Scar Gel since March (twice a day). I used Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy for 3 months. I love what Mederma® has done for me. I will be wearing a bikini to the beach this summer.
“I have had four children and now have ugly stretch marks on my abdomen. I tried another product, and that did not work. I didn't want to try Mederma®, because it was so cheap. I just figured there was no way it would work, so I was without hope. That is until one day I went online and found Mederma®. I tried Mederma®, and with the first tube I used, I noticed that my stretch marks were not as visible. The more I use it, the more improvement I see. My only regret is that I hadn't used it before!”
“I have a son, and a daughter. After I had these two bundles of joy, pregnancy left my tummy, well less than joyful... until I started using Mederma®. I have only used your product for about 4 weeks, and I am very happy to say that a 2-piece swim suit this summer might be possible. It has also given me the confidence to get rid of the extra "baby" pounds. I don't think I would've tried, if I thought my tummy would be full of stretch marks. Thank you so much.”
“I am a young mother, and like many others, I was left with very noticeable stretch marks all over my stomach and thighs. When I saw the ad for Mederma® on TV, I knew I had to get it. I started applying it on my stretch marks. After 3 months of using Mederma®, I already see results. I recommend this product to anyone who is trying to reduce the appearance of stretch marks and scars!”
