Mederma® Scar Products
Getting started with Mederma®, for new scars and old ones
When the skin is damaged, the body begins immediately to heal the wound. A scar will form as part of healing. Though scars will never go away completely, you can take steps to improve the way they look, including taking good care of the wound as it’s healing.
You can also take an active role in improving how a scar looks and feels – whether it’s a new scar or one you’ve had for a while – by using Mederma® Scar Gel or Cream once the wound has closed.
When can you start?
Studies have shown that when people use Mederma® as directed, Mederma® can help to improve the overall appearance, softness, color and texture of scars.
For scars that are more than a year old: You can start using Mederma® right away, with optimal results after 3-6 months of daily use.
For new scars that are less than a year old: As soon as any scabs are gone and the skin is healed, or any stitches (sutures) are removed, you can begin using Mederma®. You’ll see optimal benefits after 8 weeks of daily use.
Which product is best for you?
Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel applied once a day can improve how scars look and feel overall.
