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 and now the fairly new scar is barely visible when before it was very light compared the rest of my tan skin.
I can't tell you how much I appreciate this product.
Notorious for overusing the metal extraction tool & messing w/scabs...I devised an affordable regimen *no longer have health care insurance & can't afford montly derm visits*
It's solved my olive skinned hyperpigmentation/scarring issues due to hormonal cycstic flare ups:
*50% glycolic (Amazon; Perfect Peel Solutions)
*Jessner's 14% (Amazon; Perfect Peel Solutions)
Soak a q-tip w/ either one or both of the solutions. Dab on forming or existing issues & old scars. Through knowledge of my own skin tolerance & experimentation, I found the right amount of time to let the solution work before washing.
Afterward, lightly layer Mederma, Avalon CoQ10 Firming Lotion w/ niacinamide ([link removed]), and homemade comfrey salve.
My skin has never looked so incredible & for so little using reasearch, resourcefulness, and webstores. I can't believe I used to spend so much on doc & facials!
Hey! I noticed a lot of you said it stings, burns and itches when you put it on. If I just put the gel on and smear it around quickly it stings, but if I massage it into my skin for (at least) a good 30 seconds it doesn't sting at all. Hope it helps.
itches. funky stench. messy. pricey.
I read all these amazing reviews on acne.org, so I was excited when I bought my Mederma. I also read the warnings about the itchings but I thought I'd give it a go. The first application, it didn't itch at all, and I was glad. I used it about three times (in a two day period) and as I continued use, my cheeks became so itchy!!! It felt like my mind was losing it becuase it itched so bad so I scrubbed it all off with water, and the itching calmed down after 10 minutes. It did seem to work a bit, but the itching is not worth it.
Bottom line, I wouldn't use it for the face. I'm only using it for the scars on my legs, and it seems to work.
awesome! i can really see the difference .. buy this product its worth more than $20!!!
This is good so far Acne marks are concerned....
i love it.
I have use it about a week and i think is working but the only bad thing about it is the itch.... but im getting use to it hehehe.
Try to be consistent (at least 3 times a day) and be very patient for results. I have been dealing with acne scars for three years or so after being of acutane. Being in college this didn't really help my self-esteem but after using this product for about a month i have seen more results than with any other product ive tried
