FAST FACTS: Clinically shown to improve the overall appearance, color, and texture of scars; works for many types of scars, including those from dermatological surgical procedures (tattoo removal, birth mark correction, warts removal, etc.); recommended by doctors and dermatologists
PERFECT FOR: Healing and eradicating scars
”Works good on old or new scars, but expect to wait a while for good results. On a scar I got on my knee, this worked GREAT. Now the fairly new scar is barely visible when before it was very light compared to the rest of my tan skin.”
– Shel F. (from acne.org)
WHAT YOU GET: (1) tube Mederma Intense
NET WEIGHT: 20g
Apply a thin layer and gently massage onto the scar once daily for:
- 8 weeks on newer scars
- 3-6 months on older scars
- It may take a few weeks of daily use before improvements are noticeable. Begin using Mederma® Intense as soon as new skin has formed, typically two or more weeks after the injury or surgery.
- Make sure the scab has come off naturally and any stitches have been removed. On older scars you may start using Mederma® immediately. Do not apply to broken skin.

I have been using Mederma for months now (twice an day) and this is the only time I will be writing this review so that it’ll be more reliable. I used it on both new and old scars and to be honest, I did not see any improvement. For its price, not sulit at all. I have used Bio-Oil in the past and compared with mederma it is more effective and more affordable.about 1 year ago
It has paraben so I don't use this every day but after days of using it, it kind of lightened the small blemishes I have on my face. I am still observing and comparing the scars I got from cat scratch and the smaller ones. I think its efficiency also depends on the scar size and how long had it been since you got the wound and scar. But on some reviews I have watched on youtube,they say it's really effective. Best if you research on this product yourself. It says that best results are observed after 3 months.about 2 years ago
One of them is a product Meghan Markle AND Kate Middleton swear by.
Get them together to see the difference.
