Pretty much a waste of time and money

1

I've used mederma on two separate occasions on surgery scars. It requires several applications throughout the day and it pretty much did nothing to reduce the scarring. Applying mederma on a scar is about as effective as applying any lotion to a scar, just make sure to keep it moisturized and it'll do the trick.

very itchy and makes my face red

1

I used this product on my face acne scar for only two days, twice a day, and now my officemate is asking me what happened to my face, because it has red patches where i applied it and normal skin where i didn't. I also feel great itchy and dry last night. I will stop using it and see if i could return it.

Made me itch.

I don't know if it REALLY works. I tried it awhile back for acne scars and it just made me itch. I'm using systemic enzymes and metrogel/coverblend for the acne scars now. Takes a long time, but it's working.

Waste of Time

I've used Mederma faithfully on an old scar and it was simply a waste of time. I did not see any improvement whatsoever!

Sticky, takes forever to absorb, and after weeks of religious use, no progress on my scar. Very disappointing.

Average

I've used this on an one-inch scar left after I got my stitches removed. It's been 9 weeks since I started using it and my scar is still present. It is lighter in color and a little bit smoother, but it hasn't disappeared. I will still continue using it though.

I just had a beautiful baby girl 3 month ago. Unfortunately she left me with ugly stretch marks all over my stomach, legs and hips. I used everything I could to prevent them from coming but I think I gained too much weight during my pregnancy. I have been using Mederma to get rid of them for about a month now and they do seem to be fading. I still need to loose some of the weight I gained, so I think I will be able to tell better in about a month. But so far I am pleased with the product and will update my satisfaction in the future.

I had plastic surgery 6 months ago and was left with nasty scars. Nothing seemed to help the appearance of the scars until Mederma. Although you can still see the scars, now 2 months of using the product, but the difference is incredible!

recommend it!

not too many people are mentioning healing acne scars. i had two pretty big acne scars on my face that were red and deep. i have only been using mederma for about 1 month. it has taken all the redness out and is starting to lessen the depth of the scars. i look forward to putting it on every night to see the results the next day. i only use it at night because some peeling occurs. i would tell anyone to at least try it. it's very inexpensive compared to a lot of the other products. what do you have to lose (but the scar)!!!

I had plastic Surgery & Loved the results. but hated the scars it left me with! My doctor suggested Mederma, My scars were BRIGHT RED & RAISED, now you can bearly see them at all & they are now flat & part of the rest of my skin! I am now trying it on my leg where I got burnt, so far it looks somewhat better & Ive only used it for a few days!

It didn't work for me

1

I have scars all over my body, like small bumps or keloids from an allergic reaction that kept me up and scratching. Mederma is too expensive & did not work for me. It dried my skin & made it itch even more. I tried it for 3 months. No change in scar appearance. I do not believe it works for keloids as it claims.

I was in a car accident had a huge red scar on the side of my face. MEDERMA SAVED MY SOCIAL LIFE! It totally took the redness out and know my scar is flesh colored. I recomend Mederma to anyone, it works awesome. You wont see results right away, give it at least 4-5 weeks. Trust me, you wont regret it.

Fast Results

4

I have been using Mederma for the past 2 weeks with surprisingly fast results. New and old scars appear to be less visible and even slightly reduced in size. I have been diligently applying 3 times a day and once at night. I didnt think anything could help with ugly acne scars, but Mederma really seems to be working.

I've Seen Improvement

4

I have been applying Mederma to my old stretchmarks and have actually seen improvement in their texture and color. My skin feels firmer and the marks feel shallower. The manufacturer says Mederma does not work on old stretchmarks, but I applied it 4 times a day, for the past four month months, and am happy i did. True, they never go away, but if you would be happy to improve them in any way, i would give it a try. I found it to be very irritating at first, but worth it.

Two new scars greatly improve

5

I decided to go ahead and try Mederma after having two moles (that I had had for years) removed. My plastic surgeon said that there were no conclusive studies on it some claimed it helped, some showed lotion worked just as well. Because of the location of my scars one being in "the devil's triangle of healing" around the braline, the other very visible on my face I wanted to make sure the scars faded as best they could. I noticed a difference within a couple of weeks on my face and about four weeks on my chest, even though I didn't always remember to put it on four times a day. The scar on my chest is far less red and flatter and the scar on my face is practically unnoticeable. The face is generally quick to heal, but Mederma still helped a lot. This product is definitely worth the price!!!! You need a VERY small amount and it is VERY effective. I would suggest it to anyone.

Zero reduction of acne scars

1

A lot of work and a COMPLETE DISAPPOINTMENT. I wanted to give Mederma a fair try before rating it. I used Mederma for 4 months, 2-3 times a day. From reading the reviews of this product on this website, I was prepared to have to use it six to seven months. I reasoned that 6-7 months of work and effort would totally be worth it if the scars significantly improved in smoothness, shallowness, noticeability. I also reasoned that the improvement would be gradual,so that during the course of the 6-7 months there would be gradual improvement. My plan was to use it for 3-4 months, see if there were any improvement, and then based on that, decide whether or not to continue for the remaining months. Well, it's now 4 months, and there is literally ZERO improvement. I guess everyone's experience and results with this product is different. Others have clearly benefited from this product. For me, however, it has been useless. I am going to try another regimen now.

I've been using Mederma for about a month, but only once a day. I feel it makes some impact, as my skin feels good after application, but havn't noticed much improvement in scar or stretch mark. Perhaps, I should do it 2-3 times a day as suggested.

I have had 2 darkened scars on my face for more than 15 years. I have faithfully been applying Mederma for 2 months and it really works. However you must RUB it into the scar(s) 3 to 4 times a day as directed and give it some time to work especially if your scar(s) is older.

didn't work

1

My three year old daughter fell on a window seal and received five stitches. My pediatrician and a plastic surgeon said I should give Mederma a try. Mederma made her face dry and caused blotchiness. I used the product as directed. I guess it was just too much for her young skin. I have to say, after I stopped using it on her face, the blotchiness went away within a week or so. I tried silicone strips, vitamin e, neosporin, and lanolin. Nothing worked. The scar is not raised and it is now fairly close to her skin color.

about a year ago i ate at a local restaurant where picked up some form of allergic reaction from the seafood, in a day or so i started itching and blotchy red spots appeared over certain parts of my body that eventually turned into dark spots well i tried everything to make these hidious spots disappear until i found out about Mederma. I have to say that after using this product, i started noticing my scars slowly disappear. of course it may take more tubes but i have to say IT DOES WORK!!!!!

Works Great on Acne

5

A while ago I went on Accutane which worked very well to get rid of my cystic acne, but I still had a face full of red scars and blotchiness. I started using Mederma & Kinerase all over my face 3 months ago - I just can't believe the results. I now have a face with nearly no noticable scars and a very even, pale (I'm Caucasian) complexion. People I just meet actually complement me on my complexion! I'm fairly convinced it was the combination of Mederma & Kinerase that did it for me - the Mederma faded the scars and the Kinerase evened out the blotchiness. I also wanted to mention that I read some of the previous posts about redness and yes, when I had first put it on it made my face blush a little but that went away after using it for a while, and the results were *totally* worth it.
