"When I was two years old I had a heart surgery that patched up three holes in my heart. It left a big scar on my chest that prevented me from wearing bikini bathing suits or V-neck shirts. I'm very self conscious about the scar, and was doubtful when my dad introduced Mederma® to me. I've been using it for a little over a month and I've already seen a difference. I know my scar probably won't disappear completely, but I'm very happy with the results so far."
“I recently had a bunionectomy and an excision in my left leg, which left me with a 5-inch scar right on the top of my foot and another 3-inch scar on the inside of my calf. Unfortunately, since I have darker skin, it was healing with this awful red-purple tone. My doctor recommended Mederma®. I've been using it and have already seen such an improvement. I can only imagine how fantastic it will look after a few more weeks. Great product. Will definitely be using it in the future if I get more scars.”
“I went to my family physician last winter. She performed a regular check up and found a lump in my neck. She sent me to an endocrinologist who later determined I had a cancerous nodule. I had to have a total thyroidectomy. At my follow up visit, my surgeon recommended Mederma®, which I started using two or three times a day. Now after 3 months, my scar is barely noticeable. I continue to use Mederma® in the morning and at night to help lessen the appearance of the scar even more. Thank you for a wonderful product.”
“I'm an active, young professional and former runner. Due to an old running injury, I had surgery on both of my feet. Seeing the scars, I thought I would never be comfortable or confident in sandals again. I have a wonderful doctor, and he advised me that Mederma® would help tremendously. As soon as my stitches were removed, I began applying Mederma®. Although the surgical area will be in rehab mode for a while, the way Mederma® is improving my scars is helping me get through it. People can't believe I had such invasive surgery and are amazed at how my scarring has minimized. Mederma® is not only helping my scars, but healing my self-esteem.”
“Mederma® Rocks! I had abdominal surgery 4 months ago — full on incision up the middle of my stomach with 24 staples. I started using Mederma® as soon as the staples were removed. First let me say, I scar easily. With the Mederma® my abdominal scar is smooth, and the color is less noticeable. Every time I visit my surgeon, he comments on how good my scar looks.”
“My husband has skin cancer on 30% of his body. The only thing the doctors can do is cut them off. He has had over 100 cuts in the past 3 years. He has scars on the top of his head and all over his neck, arms, and back. Since using Mederma®, his old scars have started to appear less noticeable. He and I are very, very grateful to your product and company.”
“I had scarring on my lips and had to go to a doctor that specializes in corrective surgery. In order to assist in the healing process, I decided to use Mederma® after seeing the commercial. The results are amazing. My scarring became less visible! I still have to go back to my doctor for a follow-up procedure, but I'll use Mederma®, because I know Mederma® works!”
“I have had two major surgeries —both left and right carotid arteries. Unfortunately, the incisions were long and left a couple of nasty and highly visible scars on my neck. A cousin of mine recommended I use Mederma®. After using Mederma®, I do not feel self-conscious about going out into public. Yes, there are still noticeable marks on my neck, but I believe in time, and with continual use of your product, these scars will only be a bad memory. Thank you so much for developing such a wonderful product and for restoring my self-confidence.”
“Before I had a thyroidectomy, I met several women who had the procedure. They all had very thick noticeable scars across their neck, so I searched for a product to help minimize scarring. I found Mederma®. Shortly after my surgery, I started applying it to my incision site. I used Mederma® religiously, as directed. I had excellent results! My scar is barely noticeable — unless I tilt my head back and run my finger over it to point it out. Wonderful product! Thanks!”
I had hammertoe surgery on March 16th 2006, and my podiatrist recommended Mederma® for the scars. I began using Mederma®, and I am so amazed at the outcome. I've been using the product for 6 weeks, and I am so pleased with how my scars are looking. This is really a wonderful product, and anyone with a scar needs to try this product. It really works.
In December I had surgery to get rid of PVNS; my doctor originally said it would take three hours and that three-hour surgery turned into five. It turned out there was a tumor in my knee and my tissue had wrapped around all my veins and arteries, which caused me to be left with a 10" scar, along with four other minor scars. I started using Mederma® two months ago, and since then I have seen a lot of improvement in how my scar looks. Mederma® really does work. I was skeptical about it working at first, but now I will recommend it to everyone. Before Mederma® I was very self-conscious about my scar due to the fact everyone would stare at it, but I am no longer self-conscious about my scar because of Mederma®. So thank you to the creators of Mederma® for helping me get my self-confidence back.
After my third surgery after my breast cancer diagnosis and treatments, I needed a scar cream to give me my confidence back. Mederma® did just that. In just a matter of weeks, my multiple scars are a lot less noticeable. I have just one more surgery in a few days. I have no doubt Mederma® will take care of those scars too. Thank you for giving me my life back. My husband thanks you too!!
I am truly amazed with how well Mederma® worked on my C-section scar! To be honest, I was extremely skeptical when I initially made the purchase, so much so that I now regret having not taken a "before" picture to show people. The results are incredible! In less than 6 weeks I have already achieved greater results than I anticipated from the entire course of the scar therapy! I have since begun applying the gel on other scars on my body. Thank you so much!
