THEIR JOURNEYS, THEIR STORIES

"My oldest daughter, ten year old Brianna, suffered from cold sores as a young child. Unfortunately, one of them did not heal correctly; thus leaving a scar beneath her lower lip. Luckily, I came across Mederma® for Kids™ which reduced the appearance of the scarring. A few months ago, my six year old daughter Shea injured her left temple while visiting her grandmother. A visit to the Emergency Room consequently led to several stitches. I relied on Mederma® for Kids™ once more. Fortunately, this trusty product pulled through yet again. As a mother of two aspiring actresses, I must say Mederma® for Kids™ not only reduces the appearance of scars, but also gives back a sense of confidence to children and adults of all ages. I have since started using your product on my stretch marks. Though once skeptical of such, I now hold great faith in Mederma®. Thanks a ton. Keep up the good work."
"My 12 year old daughter had so many mosquito bites that there were dark noticeable scars on her legs. She’s had them for about 4 years, and all those years she never wore skirts, dresses, or shorts. Even during the summer she wore jeans. So I bought her Mederma® for Kids™ and after about 2 months all her scars are less noticeable. Then I bought many shorts and dresses for her. I'm glad she’s not ashamed of her legs anymore."

My sister asked me today if your product was worth it... I told her for sure! Then I saw the online board and figured I’d share my story. I, like so many woman, did everything right (ate healthy from home, never fast food, worked out, even walked a half marathon at 6 months. I have always been active but I just started putting on pound after pound, week after week. At first there were fears I would have gestational diabetes and other issues, but I had a perfect (literally perfect) pregnancy. I passed two sugar tests with a 113 so my Dr. told me not to worry, it happens, but I gained about 77 pounds, I was worried. I knew that I would have stretch marks, in certain light I could even see them forming. I went from 155lbs to 232lbs the day of delivery (37 1/2 weeks). I ended up having to have a C-Section to boot. Afterwards my stretch marks were so bad they were offensive, obscene even, they were just terrible. It was depressing; I would hide my belly from my then fiancé and worry that when working out/changing someone would notice. For a while I even quit going, it was too much. I had never been self-conscious before but I also never had a red road map all over my belly. I decided to buy Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy after trying Vitamin E/A and all lotions in between. I went from red to white marks and my purple C-Section scar turned red. By the 4th week you’d have to know I just had a baby. Minus that small pooch, you can barely even see my C-scar. Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy saved my sanity and my self-esteem; it truly is a blessing to me. It is expensive compared to other products, however when you consider what it does, remind yourself it’s okay to splurge for this item, then when your stretch marks start to become less noticeable it will be worth every cent! I just wanted to share my story, I know I read reviews before buying, and just knowing that real people like me have gotten real results helped me decide to buy. Remember they give $4 off if you print the coupon. I found it at Walgreens with the lotions, not with the scar cream. A side note, I did use the entire bottle, I did not let it go to waste. It is tough to find any product that you like enough to completely finish so quickly. Good luck everyone! Several months have passed since I used this product, and thanks to Mederma and a lot of hard work, I was able to reduce the marks and lose all of the excess weight.
Where do I start? OK, when I was about 12 I took a really big digger on pavement. I was racing one of my friends, I tripped and fell and basically skidded on one spot of my face (right side of forehead above eyebrow). When it finally healed it left a nasty scar, and being a girl- we don't want things marring up our faces. So my mom told me to try Mederma®, so I did and behold it worked beyond my expectations. To this day I tell the story and people ask me, “where?” And I point to this little white line on my forehead (2 centimeters long and hair wide). It worked for my scar (even now people don't believe me when I tell them I was soaking up rolls of paper towels with blood lol). But that's ok!! My next review is a similar success story. I have a very tiny frame but I am under a lot of stress so my weight is always going up and down - plus I grew one foot in one year when going through puberty. So I had some stretch marks one my hip/butt/love handle area. I was panicking about swimsuit season so I went directly to Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy (because it worked in the past) and sure enough it did. The appearance of my stretch marks has improved a lot.

AMAZING!!! This stuff works. I am a 21 year old mother of one. I gained around 45 lbs with my son. I started getting stretch marks around my 7th month of being pregnant. I didn’t care then but after having the baby and losing all the weight and getting back into shape I started to care more. I used everything in the book. Oils, cocoa lotions. EVERYTHING and nothing worked. My friend told me about Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy. I started using it right away and let me tell you this stuff is AMAZING! I started seeing an improvement in the color of my Stretch Marks after just 4 Weeks. If you have the same problem I had. Change it. People say once you have stretch marks you have to just deal with it. Well they are wrong because Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy will change how you feel about your body. Give this stuff a try. Put the Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy where you have Stretch Marks for the full 12 weeks and you will be so HAPPY and just remember this nothing works over night you might not see a change for a few weeks or so but give Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy a chance!
“I have a son, and a daughter. After I had these two bundles of joy, pregnancy left my tummy, well less than joyful... until I started using Mederma®. I have only used your product for about 4 weeks, and I am very happy to say that a 2-piece swim suit this summer might be possible. It has also given me the confidence to get rid of the extra "baby" pounds. I don't think I would've tried, if I thought my tummy would be full of stretch marks. Thank you so much.”
“My friend was picking me up to go to lunch. His friend was driving, and his friend's pit bull was in the backseat. I let the dog smell my hand, and when I bent down to get into the back seat with the dog, it must have thought I was invading his space. He bit into my nose. At the emergency room, the doctor said he could not do stitches. After the scab came off, a friend told me about Mederma®. I have used it 3 times a day since, and you can barely notice the scarring. It has only been 5 months. This stuff is amazing!!”
“I decided to try Mederma®. I've been following the directions exactly, and I can already see something going on with my scars. It's amazing. Other people have noticed, too. I understand that Mederma® won't totally remove the marks, but they are a lot less visible now. I can't wait until the end of the treatment period, so that I can see the over all results. I will definitely recommend Mederma® to others. Thank you so very much for helping people gain back what accidents or surgeries have taken away from them.”
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 :)
“I was bitten on the face by a dog. After removing the stitches 5 days later, I was in need of a product for the scar that was left behind. I had approximately a 1" scar on my nose. I had heard about Mederma® and my immediate response was to try the product. I have been using Mederma®, and I have already noticed a considerable difference in the scar. I just want to say that this product is absolutely worth trying. Thank you to the team who helped make this product for scars available.”
“I have had four children and now have ugly stretch marks on my abdomen. I tried another product, and that did not work. I didn't want to try Mederma®, because it was so cheap. I just figured there was no way it would work, so I was without hope. That is until one day I went online and found Mederma®. I tried Mederma®, and with the first tube I used, I noticed that my stretch marks were not as visible. The more I use it, the more improvement I see. My only regret is that I hadn't used it before!”
“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.”
