What it says on their website:
"Original Mederma Gel is serious skin care for scars. It's clinically proven to improve the softness, texture and overall appearance of scars."
To Purr About:
- no strong odour
- easy to apply
- absorbs quickly into skin
- did lighten my scars a bit
- have to apply it 3 - 4 times a day
- a bit pricey
- takes longer to work on older scars
- may cause itchiness
- scar didn’t completely go away in my case
I was pretty excited to try Mederma’s Scar get, because I have extremely sensitive and irritable skin, so I am often left with many unattractive scars due to scratching and dry skin. I chose a larger scar that I’ve had for a few months to test this product out on.
I found this scar gel nice in that it didn’t have any strong odour (had a subtle and pleasant smell of aloe) and absorbed in to my skin quickly.
Although I have had so-so results with this product, I have to be fair since Mederma does suggest that this product yields the best results on newer scars and also suggests applying 3 to 4 times a day, but I just couldn’t be consistent enough with my applications. At most I applied this product twice a day.
After using a whole tube of this product my scar is definitely lighter, but it’s hard to tell if that was due to the product or just time and being moisturized constantly. I did enjoy using this product as my scar did lighten, but it is a bit pricey. I might pick up this product again, but due to the price it’d have to be a pretty bad scar and one I was desperate to get rid of.
