Does Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel make scars disappear?
No product can make scars disappear completely. But Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel can help them appear softer, smoother and less noticeable.
My Mederma® box says “do not use on open wounds.” at what point is my wound considered completely closed?
A wound is completely closed when the scab falls off or the stitches are removed. You can begin to use Mederma® as soon as there is no visible scab where the wound occurred and your stitches have been removed. While there is still a scab or stitches present, keep the wound clean and covered – this will speed healing time and reduce the appearance of the resulting scar.
If I use Mederma® on my face to treat acne scars, will it cause me to break out?
Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel is a non-greasy, water-based gel, so you should be able to use it without breaking out. However, everyone’s skin reacts differently to new products. Talk to your dermatologist if you’re concerned about breaking out while using Mederma®. Your best bet is to test Mederma® on a small part of your face to see if you have a reaction to the product. If you do not have a reaction, you can then use it on scars as you see fit.
If I’m using Mederma® scar gel on a facial scar. Can I apply makeup over it?
Yes, you can use Mederma® scar products with makeup. However, Mederma® works best when it can be easily absorbed into the skin, so it’s best to apply Mederma® when your skin is clean and then allow time for it to dry before applying makeup. You may want to consult a sales associate at your local drug store or department store regarding the best concealers, foundations and powders for effective cover-up options.
What is Cepalin®?
Cepalin® is the proprietary botanical extract in all Mederma® products, which works to improve the overall appearance, texture and color of scars.
What makes Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel different from original Mederma® scar gel?
Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel is improved. Unlike the original formula that had to be applied three times a day, Mederma® Advanced is effective with just a 1X daily application, making it more convenient for you to use, while still delivering great results.
What happens if I miss an application of Mederma® on my scar?

“I absolutely LOVE Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel, it works beautifully, and I wish I had tried it long ago! I also wish I had taken before and after photos to show my great results from using Mederma®. I researched online how to treat burn scars, and that’s when I came across Mederma®. I’ve used it all over my face and armpit and I’m amazed at the dramatic, great results I’ve experienced, and I’m sure it’ll improve even more as I keep using the product. THANK YOU Mederma® for saving my face!”

“I had a horrible scar after falling through a glass window; I had a big ugly scar for the last eight years. Now, thanks to Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel, the scar is barely noticeable and I’m so glad I tried this product.”
-- John R, TX
“I stepped in some ant spray my husband had spilled in our garage and broke both my legs just below the knees. My right leg required surgery and lots of hardware. My orthopedic surgeon did a great job, but ortho’s are not known for their pretty work like plastic surgeons. I started using Mederma® as soon as my incision was healed. I couldn’t be happier with the results and I’m touting Mederma® every opportunity I get. Thank you so much for creating such a great product. P.S. I’m walking!!! :)”
