A quick internet search will provide you with multiple answers to that question as there are many over-the-counter products available on the market. Because of this, you may find it confusing and have a hard time choosing which product will work best for you.
Mederma® offers a variety of products to help fade your scars depending on the situation, so it is important for you to identify which product best suits your needs.
Mederma® should not be applied to broken skin (i.e. not open and no scab still present at the site of injury). For best results, apply Mederma® as soon as the wound has closed.
Each of these products are specifically formulated for a given situation, and they all have a unique triple action formula, that penetrates beneath the surface of the skin to help in collagen formation, cell renewal, and to lock in moisture. Mederma® Scar products have been clinically shown to improve the appearance of scars [1,2]. Mederma® is the No. 1 brand of scar reduction treatments recommended by pediatricians, doctors, pharmacists, and dermatologists according to a 2020 survey*.
