I've tried Mederma on 2 types of scars for around 3 months:
1) Acne scars - might have minimally faded them, but then again it could've just been my body healing over time.
2) Raised scar on my arm - I've had this scar for years, and the Mederma lowered it to skin level and has helped to fade it.
Others may have different results, but I'm guessing that Mederma is most beneficial for raised scars that are the result of surgery or deep cuts.
my mom said that she has retin-a , when i looked at the tube it said " Tretinoin " with like 0.1% tretinoin or something like that, but it was called Tretinoin for sure. either my mom cant read labels and is very stupid or this is what retin-a is called...????????
Hi All, I was reading through this quickly and thought I'd share my positive experiences. I'm a bit older and had acne back when there was nothing for it. I suffered with crappy skin and scars for years! very sad. however after finally visiting a dermatoligist I had a chemical peel- painful and I don't reccomend. However a few years later I had a laser peel. WOW! my scars are all but gone! Not cheap but extremely effective. Highley recommended. Also look into parisienne peels etc. which are tiny particles "sand blasting" your skin and also at the same time suction is applied. This completely gets rid of blackheads for a while( nice right around that time of month) and over time minimizes and eliminates scarring. Neostrata has excellent topical treatments that help acne and blackheads. Some of these things are pricey, but when you add up all the crap from the drugstores.... Well I'm 40 and get mistaken for in my 20's all the time!!!
