does mederma work?

10 posts in this topic

Hi! Most of the pimples I get turn to scars which really sucks. My right cheek is almost covered with scar, but they are just surface type scars, not deep ones. I would describe them as red spots. Does Mederma work for these types of scars? I really want them gone.

And, has anyone ever heard of Exposed? Its supposedly better than Proactiv and it costs about 40.00 MORE than Proactiv.

Hope you all can help!! I hate these scars!

As far as I am aware, not many people have had success with Merderma.

For your type of surface scarring look at threads to do with:

Peels - lactic and glycolic

Vinegar and lemon

Tape method of peeling

Mandelic acid

what are you guys talking about. I had severe ice pick scarring and maderma alone cured me 100%.

It didnt do anything for me. I add it to my reject box

I have used it for a month, it has changed my scars, so I use it on my cheeks and after 6 months to one year, based on the results I have now after 1 month, I would say It will improve the look of my scars a bit.

I saw a little change so I ordered more and plan to see what happens a long time from now.

I think the key is to stick to it every day 3-4 times, for a long long time.

I tried Mederma most it did for me was break me out sad.gif But everyone is different so what doesn't work for one,might work for another.Some advice try it on a little area for a week and see what happens.Then you'll know if it breaks you out or not.

I ran into a thornbush and got a minor scratch. I put mederma and it was gone in a day. I'm guessing it works on wounds more so than acne scars, and also fresh scars.

It faded my hyperpigmentation quite a bit and made it go completely away in some areas. This was after using it for about two weeks. I think the key is to use it at least twice a day and spend several minutes massaging it in. It also improved the texture of the non-red areas, but I may have got the same effect from a heavy-duty moisturizer. Mederma is expensive though. I’m temporarily quitting it so I can do a more fair comparison with the 40% lactic acid that’s about to arrive.
