In Topic: Mederma For Acne Scars?

23 July 2014 - 01:57 AM

Really? My dermatologist recommended it to me for my hyper pigmentation and she said it was perfect for it. I do not have sensitivite skin. Out of curiosity, is there anything other than AHA that I can buy at the local store that would help with hyper pigmentation and not have problems with over sun exposure?

 

I'd just go with Eucerin or one of those brands that actually is supposed to deal with redness. I agree with blahblah, it sounds like an ill-advised recommendation.

Mederma actually caused my skin to break out in a rash, so if your skin is sensitive it may make your hyperpigmentation worse. I wouldn't use it for anything except for the intended use: raised (hypertrophic) scars.

 

Note, I actually have raised scars and I still don't use it because it's so irritating to my skin.

There are no other proven hypopigmentation treatments out there, so it's just flowery language. Note that they say: "we can reliably achieve improvement in repigmentation". In the trial they simply noted that there was repigmentation and the amount of repigmentation was better than the baseline. It's doubtful that you'd get all of your pigmentation back, but probably some. In the end, how valuable is improvement to you?
