“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 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 bad scar. My face and body looked terrible. I later found Mederma® which worked. (4 times a day)! I was so grateful and I recommend Mederma® for everyone with scars!!”
“I had to have a tumor removed on the side of my face, and of course I was mortified to hear the word tumor, but the doctor reassured me that it was not cancerous. I talked with my doctor about my concern of the scarring afterwards . He reassured me that it would hardly be noticeable, especially if I tried Mederma®. I have to say I was a skeptic, but I'm glad I used this product, because I'm quite sure my scar would be more noticeable now if I had not used it. I'm quite pleased with the outcome using Mederma®, because my scar is barely visible. Thanks, Mederma®!”
“I had a heart attack and had to have emergency by-pass surgery. I awoke from surgery with a large and ugly cut on the inside of both my legs. One of the cuts went above the knee. I also had a nasty looking scar from my breast bone almost to my belly button. I was devastated and embarrassed to go around with the ugly scars. I looked online and found Mederma® and thought I would give it a try. Thank God I did. The scars are much improved. . I just wanted to say thank you, and this product has really worked.”
"I saw the ads about Mederma®, and I just had to try it. It was very inexpensive in relation to what I thought it would cost. When I was a baby I had an incident with an iron that fell on my knee. It left a burn. Fortunately, I was too young to really remember, but that scar would stay with me, often prompting individuals to ask about it. I began using Mederma® in the winter months, and by early Spring my scar had completely transformed from the texture of a raisin to a smoother texture that resembled the rest of my skin. I am very pleased with Mederma® and I have recommended it to all of my friends.”
“I had acne during my teen years, and I had a lot of red marks on my face as a result. I started using Mederma® about a year ago, and it has truly made a difference. I used to be uncomfortable with my complexion, but now I even get compliments on how smooth and clear my face is — you really would not imagine that I used to have acne. I still use Mederma® for mild acne scars that might appear on my face from time to time. And I just had a baby, so I can't wait to see how Mederma Stretch Marks Therapy will work on my stretch marks.”
"I'm an 18 year old guy and going from middle school to high school I lost quite a bit of weight rapidly and grew also... I've had stretch marks on the both the sides of my upper thighs (pelvic region) and they are very white and not newly formed. I bought the gel and it’s slowly but visibly changing my stretch marks and it’s completely helping build my confidence as I'm about to graduate and go to college. Strongly recommend the product."
“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!”
“Before I had a thyroidectomy, I met several women who had the procedure. They all had very thick noticeable scars across their neck, so I searched for a product to help minimize scarring. I found Mederma®. Shortly after my surgery, I started applying it to my incision site. I used Mederma® religiously, as directed. I had excellent results! My scar is barely noticeable — unless I tilt my head back and run my finger over it to point it out. Wonderful product! Thanks!”
"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 scar. I just could not wait another minute to thank you for this wonderful product. Thank you, Thank you so much."
“I just started using Mederma® I've heard such positive stories about this product, and I decided to give it a try. For the longest time, I've been very self-conscious, because of my acne scarring. Sometimes I don't want to show my face in public, but I push forward and stay positive. Using Mederma® gives me hope that one day I can look at myself in a mirror and look the way I feel inside.”
“I got into a car accident and broke my neck. I had to be in a halo for eight weeks. I began using Mederma® as soon as all of the stitches were removed and the holes had healed. I have seen a great change in my scars, and it is wonderful! Thank you, Mederma®! You gave me back some of the confidence that I lost!!”
