I love Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy and was pleased with my experience. I was skeptical at first, but I do believe it works. I applied it as directed – twice daily for 12 weeks. To remember to apply, I made it a part of my morning/evening beauty routine (however limited it is these days;). I didn’t have terrible stretch marks, but where I did have stretches in my skin it is less noticeable. The areas are softer and blend in with the surrounding areas, especially on my breasts, which is where I did have more stretch marks. I’ve seen a reduction in discoloration, and improvement in texture, enhanced softness and an improvement in overall appearance. I was adamant about using creams/oils during my pregnancy to try to prevent skin damage…and I was pretty successful…but where I did have some stretch marks, Mederma® was able to help fade those back in. I have already recommended it to my sister‐in‐law. She is trying it on stretch marks from her last baby...about 8 year old...we'll see how it works!
OMG! Thank you Mederma®! I had my son while my husband was in Afghanistan so I was always worried about what he would think about my stomach when he got back. Well unfortunately this product came out a little after he got back but it was still worth it because he got to see the progress right along with me. I only used it for 4 weeks because it is fairly expensive but I plan on getting more because the results were so amazing. Thank you so much for giving me a piece of my life back!
When I was pregnant with my first child I experienced a weird allergic reaction that caused me to get really severe itchy stretch marks around the mid section of my stomach. The stretch marks were purple, red and all around my belly button. I tried every cream in the world and nothing helped or prevented me from getting stretch marks. Then I lost a lot of weight which caused my stomach skin to get loose so you can imagine what my stomach looked like at that point. It was awful. Then I saw the commercial for Mederma® Stretch Mark Therapy. I am on my second month and let me tell you it works. Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy not only reduced the color of them from purple/red to something more natural, they are also not as deep as they once were. I am very happy. The after picture is using Mederma® for 1 month.
I am allergic to nickel, and I had a belt that had nickel in it. I got a rash from the nickel and then I would pick at it. I would pick at it so much that I got a BIG scar on my belly. No girl would like to have a scar on their belly when it is almost bikini season. So I got Mederma® Scar Gel and I would put it on my belly all of the time. The scar is now a lot less noticeable. I got a new belt and I am getting a scar from it also. But I am putting the Mederma® Scar Gel on all of the time. I am now using it on all of my scars all over on my body and just hoping that I will get the same results that I got on my belly. :) Thank you sooo much. I now feel like I can go to the beach and not have people stare at my scar but at my beautiful belly :)
My two year old fell, and scarred her face really bad. I was terrified thinking that she was going to have to live with that nasty scar on her face for the rest of her life. I saw a commercial for Mederma® Scar Gel so I went to buy it and started to apply it to her scar. The scar is already a lot less visible. I want to say thank you so much for this wonderful product.
VANDA Dsurgery, pregnancy
I got stretch marks after being pregnant and I've been hiding my belly. I was very skeptical when I decided to give Mederma® a try and it has changed my whole life. The stretch marks are about 70% gone and I wish I had before and after pictures but because of my skepticism I didn't take pictures. I also had a total abdominal hysterectomy in February and the scar on my belly is also fading after using Mederma® Scar Gel since March (twice a day). I used Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy for 3 months. I love what Mederma® has done for me. I will be wearing a bikini to the beach this summer.
I had a lot of stretch marks from pregnancy. Then from gaining weight. I lost all the weight and then had a tummy tuck. Although most of my stretch marks were gone I still had quite a bit. My plastic surgeon said, “use Mederma®”. I was very skeptical but she said, “just try it.” So I did and I love the results. I feel so good that I can’t stop looking to make sure they don’t come back. I show everyone… Thank you Mederma®.
I have never written anything about a product. But I felt I had to tell about this product! I have four children and I just figured there would not be anything I could do about my stretch marks. I have them on my breast, top part of my thigh and of course my stomach. I have tried everything to get rid of them. As I was shopping I happen to see the Mederma® box, I read it and I said to myself, “let’s try it.” After a little while, I started to notice an improvement in the appearance of my scars everywhere! I cried, I thought that nothing could ever help me. I can’t wait to see how it will progress! Thank You so much!
I love Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy, it really works. I had a lot of stretch marks on my stomach after having a baby and this lotion is the best. I love it. It's only been few weeks and I already see results. I applied this lotion twice a day, morning and night. It works, you just have to give it some time and use it twice a day.
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.
Ever since I was 15 I started getting stretch marks on my lower back thighs and on the back of my legs behind my knees. I didn't understand why I was getting them because I was so small & petite. It’s so sad to see all your friends wear shorts and cute bikinis when you're young and you’re stuck dressed in winter clothes in the middle of summer. I hated my body and was so insecure. I recently had a baby and barely got any stretch marks on my stomach so I blame the old ones on the pregnancy. I used everything from cocoa butter, vitamin E, to even vapor rub. NOTHING WORKED. Finally while shopping I saw Mederma® & my mom was telling me to get it but in the back of my mind I'm thinking “I'm just gonna be let down”. I decided to use it and I am seeing results, I wish I would've known about this earlier...I'm IN LOVE WITH IT & I'm so excited to be able to wear cute clothing this summer...thanks Mederma®
I had a plastic burnt mark on the side of my left leg just below my knee as big as a quarter since I was 8 years old. The scar made me wear nothing but jeans when I go out. When I went to the US in 2006, I was just browsing through the medical supplies shelves of Wal-Mart and luckily stumbled upon Mederma®. I was like "can a gel possibly remove an old scar?"...But then I bought one tube and tried it. Surprisingly after few months my scar started to improve and lighten. After more than a year of continuous application my scar wasn't as noticeable as before. Mederma® Scar Gel is the miracle worker for my scar. Many thanks to Mederma®!
I am a mom of 2 children and when I was pregnant I got stretch marks. I never had stretch marks before and I was always used to having perfect skin. So, after I was pregnant and had stretch marks, I was very self conscious of my body and never wanted anyone to see my stretch marks. I used several creams but none of them helped reduce their appearance at all. I finally came across Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy and decided I would give it a shot. I applied the cream twice a day for 4 weeks and noticed a big improvement. You could barely see there were any stretch marks on my stomach and it really made the color of them appear a lot lighter rather than dark purple. Thanks to Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy I feel great in my own skin! I never thought that it would happen again!
