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 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 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 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 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
Brittney SPregnancy, Weight
I had my baby boy when I was 20 years old. I am now 21 years old. When I was pregnant I gained 45 lbs. I have lost all my baby weight and more. However, to go along with my perfect, in-shape body, I have UGLY stretch marks on my hips, legs, and belly. Only being 21 I didn’t use lotion or any creams while pregnant. I started getting my stretch marks when I was 7 months pregnant and didn’t care at the time, till now. Well I used everything in the book, oils, butters, I used it all, I used them for 3 months and didn’t see a change. I saw Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy at the drug store and gave it a try. It was more expensive than some other products, but if it did the trick then I didn’t care. I have been using Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy for 3 weeks now, and I LOVE IT! OH MY GOD!! It works. I can see such a change in the color of my stretch marks and the way they feel. Give this stuff a try. Don’t give up if you don’t see change right away. Everything takes time. Nothing happens overnight.
"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®!"
"After having my first child, I ended up getting stretch marks on my inner thighs, hips, and buttocks. I put lotion on my belly the entire time I was pregnant but never thought to put it on these other areas. Being only 21 years old, like any young woman I want to be able to wear my swimsuit with pride. I tried all the expensive creams, cocoa butter, oils, everything. Then I saw that Mederma® was coming out with a product for stretch marks. I was so excited because Mederma® is the most trusted scar product brand out there. I’m on my first bottle and only been using this stuff for about a week and let me tell you this stuff is heaven sent! My inner thighs had really deep striae and my stretch marks on my hips were very dark. I can barely see some of the smaller stretch marks now, and already seeing improvement of my stretch marks between my thighs. I am so happy I found this stuff in the nick of time, right before I have to start wearing a bikini! Definitely use a generous amount of the stuff and rub for about ten minutes; it’s kind of like a “self therapy” treatment. Thanks Mederma®, can’t wait for the full results! Will put up a picture when my 12 weeks are up!"
I was skeptical about Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy at first, because I didn't think a lotion could make a significant difference. But I am a believer now! My stretch marks are so reduced that they are barely noticeable. I was so happy with the results. I have seen a reduction in discoloration, an improvement in texture, and my skin is softer. I was surprised to see results so quickly. After just a few weeks, my stretch marks already appeared reduced. I would definitely recommend it because of the results I have seen.
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. :)
Hi my name is Elysia and I'm 18. I got pregnant at the age of seventeen and I felt I would never be able to wear a swimsuit again. I had worse stretch marks than anyone I knew, even worse than my mother. I saw Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy at the store and decided “why not?” I used it for two weeks, saw nothing, then thought, “What am I going to lose?” I then tried rubbing it in and put pressure on while applying. I worked it in and did this seriously. I will be going to pierce my belly button - that's how well it worked. My stretch marks are 8 months old. Just be persistent with it what is there to lose right?
