After using Mederma® Scar Gel, I noticed amazing results. I was extremely wary of trying the scar cream because many products that say they offer great results don't. Mederma® Scar Gel completely proved my predictions wrong. My scars were already healed, they looked white and were extremely noticeable against my tan skin, but Mederma® Scar Gel managed to, day by day, visibly diminish the scars. I followed the instructions and got amazing results. I couldn't be happier.
I had a pretty bad scar on my arm when I was in the 6th grade...it covered almost my entire wrist...I thought it looked hideous. My mom discovered Mederma® Scar Gel and figured why not try it? So we did. I used the product as directed and my scar is far less noticeable. I know that seems odd since a lot of these gels don’t work...but this one does. I swear by this gel!! I’m excited to try the Stretch Marks Therapy now. And I pray it has the same effect!!
Right before Christmas in 2010 I fell down icy stairs and hit my face directly on cement. I cut my lips and the skin on and beneath my nose and broke a couple of teeth. It was a very painful ordeal, but the most distressing part was that my face was injured for the holiday, and my last semester as an undergrad. I asked **Santa** (My Aunt Barbara) for Mederma® for Christmas; it's February now and no one (not even my roommates) can believe that I ever had a fall! I feel so much more confident going out in public...for a while I was so embarrassed I wore a surgical mask! Mederma® really works!
"On August 2nd, 2008 I was assaulted and left with 3 scars on my face. The first two are about 1 inch long, both on my forehead. The last one is the one that I knew would change my life. It is the biggest scar on my face and is 4 inches long. My face literally hung down, severed all the way down to my temporalis muscle. From the arch of my eyebrow to my hairline right above my ear. When the ordeal happened I remember looking in the mirror and saying "I have to learn how to live with the new me. This is who I am." Although I was devastated internally, I pushed forward. I wore my hair down hiding my scars, I learned every make-up trick and trade. At the same time I said, something has to be done. When the doctor removed the top layer of 214 stitches, I was left with nerve damage, numbness, tingling, ear aches and I was not able to raise my eyebrow. Not to mention scars!! My son who was 3 at the time called me "Monster Mommy". :( Coincidentally two different friends came over and both introduced me to Mederma®. The instructions say use the product three times a day and can honestly say that I didn't. I said nothing would work! I LIED TO MYSELF! It has been two years and I can walk around PROUD without makeup. I made a picture diary for my family to see how I progressed. My before and after shots are amazing. I've recently started my Mederma® again and people are really noticing and asking me "What have you been doing ?! " The people that don't know me say "What scar?" I have never used anything else on my scars and I never will. I recommend Mederma® to anyone. It does not hurt to at least try!! - THANK YOU for this product....it has changed my life. I'm crying looking my pictures today, but I want people to see have the CONFIDENCE to prove it!!"
"My girlfriend has 3 dachshunds and I was playing with the youngest while I was visiting her. Never in a million years did I think that I would get bit by my friend’s dog, but I did. I was rolling a ball to the youngest dog and the ball got stuck under a chair and when I bent down to get it I was on my knees. I turned around and the middle dog bit me on the lips. Well I got 9 stitches from that little dog around my upper lip and under my nose. I started using Mederma® after the stitches were removed and I have been using it for 8 weeks and the results are great."
"I was attacked by a dog when I was 12 years old. I had over 300 stitches in my face. A plastic surgeon put my face back together, and after the wounds were completely closed, he told me to start applying Mederma® every morning and night. I still use it to this day, and nobody can tell I've even been through this. Besides the extra wrinkle on my left cheek when I smile, the scars are no longer visible! I love this product and will use it forever!"
I've had acne since I was 14, I'm 21 now. I've never been comfortable being without heavy concealer and foundation on to cover up all the acne scars. I've tried many different scar treatments and nothing has worked for me. I've been using Mederma® for about three weeks now and already it's helping reduce the appearance of the scars. I'm very very pleased with this product.
"I was training for a Labor Day 31 mile run when the person in front of me fell off her bike. I can't come to a complete start at 30mph so I had few choices to make, hit her (she was on the ground), hit the bike or pull out in front of a car. Nevertheless, I hit the bike and of course I was thrown and knocked out. When I woke my face was covered in blood. My sunglasses didn't break but the force of them against my face broke my nose and cut me all the way around my left eye and the left side of my face was covered with road burn. I started using Mederma® and it has been two weeks and I'm very happy. You can barely see the cut that was around my eye and a lot of the road burn marks have faded - all that is left of that accident is a broken nose and a black eye- I'm BLESSED."
"I would like to first state that I have the worst healing process EVER. I have superficial scratches that I’ve had since I was 8. I am not comfortable wearing shorts now because I have scars every where. When I turned 13 it got worse due to acne scars. I wouldn't want to go to school because I was too ashamed. Later in life, still having acne, I found Mederma®. I saw a visible difference in the appearance of my scars using Mederma®. I have been using it ever since to treat scars that I get from acne. When I get a pimple, I think to myself "oh no biggy I've got Mederma®". Thank you Mederma®! You are a god send."
"I recently fell down the stairs, head first. I was lucky that I didn’t kill myself but I was bruised pretty badly. I wear glasses and they didn't break, thank god for that, but the impact of the fall caused me to get two black eyes, brush burns on my forehead and knees and a broken wrist. But the worst injury of all was to my nose and upper lip. My nose was broken, but that healed OK. My lip needed three stitches and I am not sure how many stitches were needed to reattach the skin that was hanging from the tip of my nose. Needless to say, there were scars to deal with. Your product was and is wonderful. I have only been using it so far for two weeks but I can already see an improvement in the fading of the scar. I just could not wait another minute to thank you for this wonderful product. Thank you, Thank you so much."
“When I was a toddler, I had an accident that left me with a rather deep, jagged scar on the bridge of my nose. My whole life was spent trying to find ways to hide my scar. I wear glasses, so I always bought the thickest frames imaginable to hide it! It wrecked all self esteem I had. I decided I'm not going to let a scar ruin my life. I purchased my first tube of Mederma®. I wasn't very confident that it would work on such an old scar, but I figured it was definitely worth a shot. It's been months of daily use, and my scar is barely noticeable! I love wearing my contacts now! And my confidence has gone through the roof! I don't feel like everyone in the room is staring at my scar anymore. I'm so glad I took that chance and bought Mederma® and got my life back! Thank you so much! I tell everyone how great Mederma® has been for me!”
“I was riding my bike in a race really fast with my friend. I looked back to see my friend and I fell in a rocky hill that caused many injuries. I had broke my legs had a gash open on my leg and had many cuts on my body. I also had a huge cut under my lip which left a scar I couldn't help it was so bad!! My face and body looked terrible after I have gotten out so I found Mederma® which worked. (4 times a day)! I was so grateful and I recommend Mederma® for everyone with scars!!”
“My story sounds way stupid, but it's true. I was in my bathroom and tripped and hit my head on my closet door that had a rack of shoes hanging on the back of it. A high heel that was sticking out caused a deep scratch in the middle of my forehead. It was a pretty big scar and very noticeable. I put Mederma® on it every day and now you can barely see the scar. Now, I feel like people are paying attention to me and not the scar on my forehead. Thank you, Mederma®!"
“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.”
