/worth using on a new incision.
I DO NOT use the gel, I used to but I hated that it peeled when I put on makeup. Now I use the Merderma cream with spf. It is a few dollars extra, but worth it. It goes on easier & I have no problems with it with my make up.
I used Mederma before for about 3 months, & it did help, I'm just can't remember how much it helped because it was a long time ago. But I remember that it did help, I just had to quit using it then because I couldn't afford it! lol.
But now, I'm back on it, have been for a little over a month & I think it has helped. Most of my scars are really old, so I will continue using for some more months (if I can continue to afford it! lol)
But I know for a fact it does help, so I do reccommend it.
I absolutely adore this product. I get large pimples around my jawline which often leave an ugly sore or scab when popped. Mederma has really helped soften the scabs, while making the skin pinker instead of a bright and agitated red. Although the tube claims you shouldn't use this on open wounds, it's worked really well for me on open sores and I have yet to experience a problem. I have noticed that it will put a shiny film over open sores, but this is beneficial if you want to cover it with make-up. Mederma seems to make the most dramatic improvements when left on overnight. I usually leave a large drop on the problem area and rinse it off in the morning. Although it does sort of get stuck on there it can be removed with warm water.
Mederma is great! It really helps with acne scars, and it reduces the redness quickly.
However, do NOT use this product before you go to bed. The itchiness will drive you crazy! One night, I woke up and realized I was furiously rubbing my face against my pillow. Haha.
Probably good for very small scars and recently acquired scar, it is definitely not for post surgical scars.
Even though it takes a lot of time and commitment, this product is great. I have really sensitive skin that breaks out in hives from almost anything I put on my face, and this really helps to get rid of the redness and the scars that have built up on my cheeks. If you use this with really good moisturizer (I use anti-aging serum at night and clinique during the day), it gives your skin a nice base to apply makeup to while allowing your skin to heal. I have noticed a big difference in just a few weeks.
