Post Anyone Try Mederma for Scars?

I am currently using it on a scar I got as an accident as a child. It is softening it.

Anyone else try it?

There was a couple of months I did not use Mederma on my scar. I am back to using it. It really seems to have softened it. And this is a very old scar.

I was wondering about that too, but I am afraid of putting it on my face.

Dear FM5:

How is your scar now that it has been months? Did the mederma smooth out the rough edges and effect the visibility/texture?

Thanks, Belle

Dont use it on face! NEVER! it makes ur skin tone of the scar look substantially lighter/SMOOTHER if thats what u want. BUt it looks weird. Makes u look like you have white patches.

Re: Anyone Try Mederma for Scars?

Thank you for the advice. I was using the Curad scar strips and after just 2 days my scar was lighter than my normal skin. I stopped using it because I did not want my scar to be lighter than the rest of my skin. Now I know Mederma would do the same thing.
