A scar is something that happens to you—and most of the time, you have little control over where and how the scar forms. If it's in a noticeable place, you might try to hide it. Maybe you wear your hair long to cover a scar on your face. Or long pants all summer to hide a scar on your knee or leg.

Watch how Mederma Works

With Mederma® Gel, you don't have to hide your scar. You can take charge of your appearance and regain your confidence.

Original Mederma® Gel is serious skin care for scars. It's clinically proven to improve the softness, texture and overall appearance of scars.

Mederma® Gel should be evenly applied and gently rubbed into the scar 3-4 times a day for 8 weeks on new scars and 3-4 times a day for 3-6 months on existing scars.

Begin using Mederma® Gel as soon as your wound has healed or your sutures have been removed. You may also start using it immediately on older scars.

Not intended for use on open wounds.

What is Mederma® Gel?

Mederma® Gel is the first topical gel created to help reduce the appearance of scars. It's made from a proprietary botanical extract to form a greaseless gel that is pleasant-smelling, easy to use, and most importantly, effective.

When should I start using Mederma® Gel?

As soon as your wound has healed or your sutures have been removed. Or, start using Mederma® Gel immediately on older scars.

Who should use Mederma® Gel?

Anyone with a scar can use Mederma® Gel. When used as directed, it's safe for all ages. However, some people may be sensitive to its ingredients, so if you experience persistent itching, swelling or scar discoloration, stop using Mederma® Gel immediately. If symptoms persist, you should contact your doctor.

So what makes Mederma® Gel different?

Well first of all, Mederma® Gel is the #1 doctor-recommended product for scars in the United States. It's also an invisible topical gel. So, unlike cosmetic pads or silicone sheeting, your scar management is never noticeable.

Does Mederma® Gel make scars disappear?

No product can make scars disappear completely. But Mederma® Gel can help them appear softer, smoother and less noticeable.

What is Cepalin®?

Cepalin® is the proprietary botanical extract used in Mederma® Gel. It works to soften hardened scar tissue and improve the color, texture and overall appearance of scars.

Can't I just use a store brand scar product?

While store brand scar products may share some of the same ingredients as Mederma® Gel, they are not the same as Mederma® Gel. Mederma® Gel is a patented formula, with a proprietary ingredient, Cepalin®, and it cannot be duplicated.

“I have been self-conscious all of my life because of a chicken pox scar in the center of my forehead. I have considered expensive surgery for this scar. I used Mederma for two years. The results are amazing! My family and friends are astonished by the difference. Every day I look in the mirror and my scar is harder and harder to find.”Jessica, CT

“About 20 years ago I had a black-head on my chest. It began as a small scar, but over the years has grown to about three and a half inches. I tried everything, but when I found Mederma®, my search was over. I apply it every day as I am getting dressed, and at night when I'm getting ready for bed. The scar has turned from red and angry to white and flat. Thank you for this great product!”Victoria, CA

“As a child and teen I had a disgusting habit of picking sores. This led to dozens of round scars on my legs. As an adult I didn't wear shorts, skirts, or bathing suits. I bought Mederma® at a pharmacy and figured I would try it. I started using it and the scars are not gone but they are lighter and less noticeable. I will keep using it!”Kat, VA
