Results on Scars Using Mederma
 
I wanted to mention what happend when I used Mederma on a scar that I had since I was a child.

I got this scar in an accident when I was very young. I tried so many things - dermabrasion, those "scar therapy cosmetic pads", etc. I even had one dermatologist tell me "you know, some things are meant to be". I just figured that it was something I had to live with.

It was a horrendous scar - deep and indented right on the bridge of my nose! YOu can't imagine how ashamed I was especially going on dates when I went out to a restaurant and had a bright light right above me that really showed it.

I had heard about Mederma and tried it for two months. I would have to say that the scar is minimized about 50%. I was completely amazed! I wish I knew about this stuff 20 years ago!

I have gotten results too. :) That stuff really itches when I put it on. I can wear it at night as long as I take a sleeping pill. "Itching" to severe for sleep sometimes.

I would have to say that it works for acne scars. My scar was deep and indented and was also over 20 years old. If it worked for mine, it probably will work for others.

I don't know if it works on red marks. You can give it a try.

Frankly, I was amazed at this product. Again, even a dermatologist and plastic surgeon told me to basically "live with the scar".

Thought I'd bring this to the top for those who have scarring.
