How does mederma treat acne scars?? I believe it only works for hyperpigmentation, b/c a topical gel that can cure physical scars is too good to be true! :blink: But the amount of time you must wait in order to see improvements for pigmentation is equivalent to the amount of time it takes your skin to heal naturally. So i believe mederma is bogus! :angry:

WHat do you think? :huh:

From what I have read it helps with hypertrophic scarring, not atrophic (indented) scarring. It takes several months and can be used in conjunction with silicone sheets.
