“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 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've had some trouble with acne, and what made my face look worse were all the scars that I got because I can't bear to leave it alone. Mederma® has helped SO much! Many of my acne scars are way more faded and closer to my skin color. I also have gotten a lot of burns while at work, even on my face, after I put frozen food in the fryer. I used Mederma® and it's so much better. You can hardly even see the purple scars on my face anymore. At all!!! I'm so glad for this!
As a teen I picked my face all the time, which led to acne scars. Pretty soon my whole face was covered with them. I’ve tried 4 products to improve my scars but so far only one has worked. I saw Mederma® on TV and went online to read the stories about it and decided to give it a try. It’s been almost 2 months since I've been using this product and I can see some results. Not as fast as I was hoping, but it did the trick for my T-zone area and slowly on my cheeks. It’s a tad expensive but it’s worth it! Just gotta take some time.
When I was in junior high, I developed severe body acne which unfortunately led to scarring on my chest and my shoulders. I lived with the scars well into college. For the longest time, I put up with them by just using another scar gel product, but it didn't reduce their appearance at all. I didn't think there was anything else that could possibly help - I just happened to find Mederma® Scar Gel on the shelf of a drugstore and decided I had nothing to lose. After eight months of constant use - I'm seeing slow but very noticeable improvement in the appearance of my scars. What was my absolute worst scar is looking so much better, I even don't remember what it looked like before. I'm waiting patiently after another year or so before I send before and after pictures of my scars to thank those who developed this product. I'm so grateful!
I have suffered from acne for a long time. My first breakout was when I was in the 5th grade. Since then I have had horrible acne come and go in different parts of my face. Early acne stages concentrated around my forehead, and left tiny scars that looked more like enlarged pores. I learned to cover this up with bangs, and managed to move on without it bugging me too much. In the past two or three years, however, I've had acne only on my cheeks. Then things took a turn for the worse last year when I started college. My acne became incredibly severe and painful. I had horrible cystic acne, and could not even touch parts of my face from the pain and swelling. After suffering from continuous breakouts that lasted for 6-9 months, my acne finally started fading. Then I saw the evidence left on my face and was heartbroken. After all that time trying to get rid of my acne, I find that underneath all the red bumps were dark spots and holes. They were noticeable, to say the least. I hated going out without make-up on because I felt completely unattractive, and hated putting any make-up on because I knew that no matter what it could not cover up my scars. After thoroughly researching "acne scars remedy" I thought that my only options were crushingly expensive professional beauty procedures or at-home remedies that proved to be not so effective. I was starting to give up on my scars hoping that time would perhaps make it less noticeable when I saw the Mederma® Scar Gel commercial on television. I was skeptical, but knew that it wouldn't be that much of a risk to start trying. Although I did not see immediate results, I could feel the difference in my face. When I woke up in the morning my skin felt a little bit smoother each day. Dark spots appeared less noticeable over time. I have used this product for about 2 months now, and my experience has proved the gel to be effective. My older scars on my forehead have taken a while longer to improve, but I definitely can feel and see the difference. My scars on my cheeks have started improving as well. This will be a time consuming change. However I didn't know such a wonderful product existed and I am very happy. I am excited to put my Mederma® gel on at night and feel the results on my skin. I love putting on make-up now and seeing my skin smoother in the mirror. It seemed impossible before I used this, but it really has built my confidence. I think another couple months and my acne scars will be so less noticeable that I'll even be confident without any make-up on! :) Coming from a girl who has suffered so long from acne, I really want anyone out there that may be giving up to just try it. If you stick to it you should see improvement. Lastly, a thank you to Mederma®. This experience has been truly amazing.
“For years, I have struggled with annoying acne. The dark scars on my face have made me extremely self-conscious. Insecurity with my complexion created all sorts of anxiety in social situations. Then I saw a commercial for Mederma®. Skeptical, I read reviews all over the Internet about the success others had. I decided to give it a chance. Let me tell everyone, I am so glad I did. The appearance of the scars has noticeably diminished, and my confidence has improved as a result. If you are tired of acne scars keeping you locked up inside, free yourself by using this product. Thanks, Mederma®!”
“I used to have acne scars all over my face. I tried different products but nothing worked. Then I saw a commercial on TV about Mederma® and asked my husband to buy it for me. I have used it for a month, and my face looks amazing. I just bought another tube two days ago for my C-Section scar. I recommend it for anyone who needs it. Mederma® really works.”
"Over the years when I was a kid, I used to get lots of mosquito bites in the summer and they often scarred my skin. I used Mederma® to clear them up and it turned out beautiful for me. As I got a little older into my teenage years, I was faced with another problem that seemed to trap me in a bubble of being self-conscious and feeling down – acne. It started off as a few (2 or 3) around my forehead, and then sprouted all over my face. I couldn't believe it. I never had problems like that. I then found an amazing cleanser, yet I noticed it wasn't acne on my face anymore; it was the scars left by them. Once again Mederma® saved the day! I love it and use it everyday on my acne scars and get my life back. I am enjoying being in pictures now and hope that more people with my story can live on and try it out. It really works in my opinion :)"
