“I was bitten in the face by a German Shepherd. The wounds were severe and my reconstructive surgeon gave me Mederma®, which I used faithfully for months. Where I once had bright scars that made me self-conscious and unable to make eye contact with strangers. Now I am not at all self-conscious about the faint, barely-there scars from the past.”
“I used to have acne scars all over my face. I tried different products but nothing worked. Then I saw a commercial on TV about Mederma® and asked my husband to buy it for me. I have used it for a month, and my face looks amazing. I just bought another tube two days ago for my C-Section scar. I recommend it for anyone who needs it. Mederma® really works.”
“I had to have a tumor removed on the side of my face, and of course I was mortified to hear the word tumor, but the doctor reassured me that it was not cancerous. I talked with my doctor about my concern of the scarring afterwards . He reassured me that it would hardly be noticeable, especially if I tried Mederma®. I have to say I was a skeptic, but I'm glad I used this product, because I'm quite sure my scar would be more noticeable now if I had not used it. I'm quite pleased with the outcome using Mederma®, because my scar is barely visible. Thanks, Mederma®!”
“I have had two shoulder surgeries in the last few years, so I have two different scars: one on the back of my shoulder and one in the front. The first surgery, I did not use Mederma®, the second one, I did. There is definitely a big difference in the appearance of the scar that I used Mederma® on! Now, I'm using Mederma® on my old scar, and it is improving! Thanks so much!”
“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 a heart attack and had to have emergency by-pass surgery. I awoke from surgery with a large and ugly cut on the inside of both my legs. One of the cuts went above the knee. I also had a nasty looking scar from my breast bone almost to my belly button. I was devastated and embarrassed to go around with the ugly scars. I looked online and found Mederma® and thought I would give it a try. Thank God I did. The scars are much improved. . I just wanted to say thank you, and this product has really worked.”
“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.”
“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 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 slipped on the ice in the parking lot of my office and split my head open. I called my wife, and she took me directly to our family doctor. The doctor came in and exclaimed, "Oh my, this is much worse than I expected. Maybe you should go to the hospital and have a plastic surgeon look at this. They can do a much better job of stitching than I can." I figured I couldn't afford to do that, so I told the doctor to start stitching. I had 17 stitches that ran from my hair line to just below my eyebrow. The doctor told me to expect a rather large scar. So my wife went to the druggist, and they recommended Mederma®. I have faithfully rubbed Mederma® on my scar 4 times a day. After 6 weeks the scar is barely visible. I would recommend Mederma® to everyone I know who has a scar to heal. Thank you.”
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.
“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.”
