THEIR JOURNEYS, THEIR STORIES
Making noticeable scars and stretch marks less noticeable is about more than science and skin. It’s about a transformation in how people feel about themselves. At the end of that journey, people want to share their happiness. Mederma® users have some great stories about why they chose Mederma® and what happened when they did. Adventurous stories, sad stories, funny stories, love stories, stories of bravery and stories of success.

I recently had my thyroid removed due to thyroid cancer. Having a scar in such an odd place (right across my neck) brings lots of questions and it makes me self-conscious to have to explain the whole "cancer thing" to strangers. I want this scar gone fast. Of course I looked up similar scars on the internet and some people still have theirs years later. So I got Mederma®. I’ve only been using Mederma® for a short time and my scar is 80% improved! I can't believe it. Woohoo!
I recently had a surgery to get a mole removed from my face. My plastic surgeon informed me it would leave a scar, but I didn't know what to expect. After the removal I started to notice the scar forming and couldn't believe how horrible it appeared. My surgeon told me once it was fully healed I could start applying Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel to it and I should see results in two months. After the first 4 weeks of using Mederma® I saw amazing results. It has been 4 months since my surgery and my scar is barely noticeable. Thank you Mederma® for making my scar almost vanish! :)

I started using Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy after I had my baby girl. Six months later I decided to look back at my before photos and all I can say is, “Wow!” I am at a loss for words! I honestly didn't think it was helping me out so much, but it is. It hasn't been instant, but it is happening. If I hadn’t used Mederma® it wouldn’t look as good as it does now. Be persistent because IT WORKS! Thank you Mederma®!

I am a certified dog trainer. I got careless working with a German Shepherd which resulted in a bite to my face just below my left eye. Dog bites typically are not sutured, but the ER doctor that treated my bite was concerned with scarring, so she used two stitches to help close the wound. Then she recommended Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel. As you will see in the before and after pictures, Mederma® worked wonders. Thank you for your fine product.
I started to use Mederma® Scar Cream Plus SPF 30 after having an angry wart removed from my knee. The doctor tried methods of removing the wart that wouldn't leave a scar, but in the end nothing was working so they had to surgically remove it and it left a nasty purple scar. A friend recommended Mederma® Scar Cream Plus SPF 30. I was a bit skeptical at first, for many reasons, but I gave in and gave it a shot. The pictures show the three stages of the scar-to-be. The first one was taken the day the wart was removed, the second after it had healed, and the third after four weeks of using Mederma®. I used it as directed, three times a day and I’m clearly seeing results. I will continue to use the cream and hope that in another four weeks or so it will be even less noticeable. I would most definitely recommend Mederma® Scar Cream Plus SPF 30.
I used Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel after surgery on my face for removal of a lesion. The scar was about 1.5-2 cm on my right cheek. After my wound healed, I started using the gel by massaging it in a few times a day — in the morning before putting on makeup and twice in the evening, as soon as I come home and just before going to bed. The gel has a light texture and absorbs into the skin quickly, so I could put makeup on and go to bed without worrying about having marks on the pillows. I’m very happy with the excellent results I got after three months. Take a look at my photos! My friends don’t notice my scar as much, nor can I.
I work for a professional water ski team in Wisconsin and during one of my performances I found myself entangled with a ski rope and was dragged behind the boat for several yards. After being taken to shore, I realized the seriousness of my injury, especially when I saw the back of my leg. People recommended Mederma® to me right away to make my scar less noticeable, so I waited for my wound to heal fully and started my use of Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel. I began using the gel around the middle of September and now, a few months later, I am seeing great progress and my scar looks better.
After my surgery on my wrist I was so worried that I would have a huge ugly scar to keep forever. People would always notice it while I was working and would ask what happened to me. I remembered seeing commercials about Mederma® so I decided I would give it a try. I used it for a few months and it really did help. People no longer notice it while I'm working. It's not gone completely but Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel sure helped out a lot. My scar looks so much better than it used to. I'm not nearly as self-conscious about it like I used to be. My boyfriend just started using it on some of his scars and he's already seeing results.
At age 21 I underwent surgery, leaving a two-inch incision across the front of my neck. I was nervous the scar would be very noticeable, so I started using Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel as soon as I was healed. I am very happy with the results! The redness and thickness of my scar have decreased significantly since I started using Mederma®. I would recommend this product to anyone who has a surgery scar.
"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 10 months pregnant and had VERY DARK stretch marks. My sister was trying to minimize her stretch marks so I decided to do the same. I started using Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy about 8 months after I had my son and my skin is back to its normal color. Thanks Mederma®, it was money well spent!
I was 95lbs before I got pregnant and gained weight up to 150 lbs. I thought that because I was so small it would not make a difference with stretch marks.. I mean I never had them before why would I get them now? Wrong. I ended up with marks all over. I did not know what to do or which product to turn to. After reviewing hundreds of products I decided to try Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy. At first I thought it was a joke. But after a month went by I noticed the marks lightened a bit.. and within I think 13 weeks or so they had lightened A LOT. I never share stories online, but I am so happy with the way I look now compared to what I looked like before, because of this product. :)
