Mederma® Scar Products
Tips for use
A little Mederma® goes a long way:
Apply only a thin layer of Mederma®. Gently massage it into the scar, confining the product to the scar only, until there is no shiny, wet or sticky feeling left.
If your skin appears to be dry or is flaking after you apply Mederma® several times, you might be using too much. Try using a little less product or gently cleansing the area with mild soap and water before a fresh application.
How to use with other products and medicines:
You can safely use Mederma® with other cosmetic products like lotions and makeup. We recommend that you apply it before other lotions and makeup products, but you can reapply Mederma® throughout the day without washing your skin.
Please consult your healthcare professional before using Mederma® with other topical (on the skin) products that you purchase with or without a prescription.
If you use medicines (such as some acne medicines) that make your skin sensitive to the sun, ask your doctor or pharmacist if Mederma® Scar Cream Plus SPF 30 might be a good choice for you.
