Does Mederma Really Work?

A skin care product that is formulated to treat, soften and reduce the appearance of both old and new scars, Mederma is a greaseless topical gel that is made from special botanical extracts. It also contains Cepalin, a patented proprietary blend that helps with removing scars from surgery, burns, injury, acne and stretch marks as well. Mederma will not stain clothes and once applied, it is quickly absorbed by the skin. To use, apply a thin layer of Mederma to the affected area, gently massaging the scar, 3 to 4 times every day.  To achieve best results, use Mederma for about 8 weeks on new scars and between 3 to 6 months for old scars. Active ingredients in Mederma includes: Water (Purified), PEG 4, Allium Cepa Bulb Extract (Onion), Xanthan Gum, Allantoin, Fragrance, Methylparaben, Sorbic Acid. Mederma is not intended to be used on open wounds.

On the doctor’s recommendation, I used Mederma for three months following my surgery. I couldn’t tell that it did anything at all. A year after the surgery, they had to go back in near the original scar. I didn’t bother with Mederma the second time. I actually have LESS scarring (the line is fainter, finer, and less discolored) than on the area where I did use it.

Yes - Mederma- Stretch Mark
5 stars5 stars5 stars5 stars5 stars

So I am currently 8 1/2 months pregnant, and have developed noticable stretch marks on my lower tummy, and on my hips. I have been using Mederma Stretch Mark cream for about 2 and half weeks, and I have seen amazing results. I use Mederma twice a day and massage it into my stretch marks until it is completely absorbed. My stretch marks were bright red, but now they are more of a light pink. My smaller stretch marks have disappeared while my bigger ones appear to be smaller. Being that I am still pregnant and still have a month or two to go, I’m still developing other stretch marks. Mederma has definitely worked on my existing ones. I’m excited to see what they will look like when I’ve used the product for the full 12 weeks.[..] If you want to see results you have to use the product religiously, and massage it aggresively. I have not missed a mederma application. I apply it everyday twice a day.

After having invasive surgery, I used Mederma twice a day for many months. It really helped to prevent and lighten scarring.
