I didn't have any problems with stretch marks while I was pregnant with my son, but after I got home from the hospital I noticed I had some stretch marks on the front of my stomach. They made me really unhappy and a little ashamed, actually. My sister actually told me about Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy. I knew Mederma® worked for scars, but I didn't know how it worked with stretch marks. She told me to try it, and she had a coupon that she downloaded from the Mederma® web site. I actually didn't use it until about a year after my son was born because I was still unsure. When I did, I started seeing results within five weeks, which was a lot faster than I thought! By the 12-week mark they were a lot lighter and harder to see! I couldn't feel them as much, either, because they were smoother. It made me really happy to know that there is actually a product out there that works the way it says it will. I know stretch marks are a big deal — not only for women but for men as well. I even recommended it to my brother. I just want to spread the word about Mederma® to whoever I can because I've tried it and it worked for me. Thank you so much for helping me and letting me share my story. If you’re out there and you’re not comfortable with your stretch marks, definitely give Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy a try.

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®!
The day after I had my first son, I looked in the mirror and thought, “Wow, I will never be able to show my stomach in person again at 23 years old.” I went 40 weeks and 2 days with my son. I didn't have any stretch marks up until the last month. They appeared out of nowhere! They were horrible, itchy, large, disgusting marks that covered my stomach. I used Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy day and night. My results after 2 months were incredible. They are softer, smoother, and less noticeable by far! My before and after photos were taken with the flash on and using the same camera. Thank you, Mederma®!
I was very skeptical about using Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy. I tried many other products in the past, and spending more money on something I was not sure would work had me worried. But Mederma® is amazing. My stomach was very “wrinkly” after having my son, but after I started using Mederma® I could see a difference. This is the best product I have ever used for stretch marks. I tell everyone at work how it really did help me. Thank you Mederma®.
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.
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!
I have 3 children under 5. A 5-year-old and 3-year-old twins. At the end of my pregnancy I stretched so far I couldn’t touch the end of my belly. I am 5’1”. After my twins were born the stretch marks were awful. I’ve been using Mederma® for weeks and I can really see results!! I didn’t think it would work but I could show pre and post pregnancy pictures! (As embarrassing as it might be) Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy really works!!!!
Before I had my beautiful daughter I weighed 115 pounds and was really tone. So to start out a pregnancy I was really tiny and bound to get stretch marks. Throughout the pregnancy I used cocoa butter for stretch marks but it didn't help out at all. I weighed 140 pounds and had these awful dark purple tinted stretch marks taking over my entire stomach. I bought Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy and tried it out. It’s been just a few weeks and even my husband noticed that it really reduced the color and appearance. He’s the one that pointed it out. WELL WORTH THE $40

After I had my son my stretch marks were deep, purple, and all over the place. After my husband left for Iraq I set a few personal goals: to drop my pregnancy weight and minimize my stretch marks. Once I dropped my weight however, my stretch marks became even more noticeable. I tried many different products and even talked to a doctor about getting a tummy tuck. Then I saw a commercial for Mederma®'s Stretch Marks Therapy. I went out the next day and bought a bottle. It's been a month now and I am thrilled at how well it's been working. My stretch marks are less noticeable. I can't wait until my husband comes home next month to see his new confident wife. Thanks 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 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. :)
"I have to say I was very skeptical about trying Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy. You always see commercials claiming that something works then you come to find out that it doesn't. Well, I was desperate after my pregnancy. I developed AWFUL stretch marks down my legs and thighs. I have been using this product for almost 5 weeks now and my stretch marks have faded so much. I can’t even imagine how great my legs will look after the full 12 week period! I was so self conscious and depressed because I thought my legs would never look good again, but now I have hope and I’m getting my confidence back! Thanks Mederma®!"
