Mederma?? Does it do anything for acne scars??

Recommended Posts

From what I have read about other peoples' experiences with it, it doesn't appear to work for atrophic scars. Apparently it works for raised scars though. I also heard it smells like onion. ewww! =;

I bought it on impulse from a drugstore, and I've been using it for about 4 days. It hasnt made any difference on my rolling acne scars or brown marks, but then, its been only 4 days. But it has made my skin softer and evened out skin tone a bit. Hard to describe or quantify, but I think it made my skin look better!

Its a thick gooey gel, and the label says to put it on 3-4 times a day. It is impossible to cover with makeup so I dont think you can use it if you need to leave the house. I didnt find the smell offensive.

Maybe any improvement in my skin is because it forms a cling-wrap on my skin and prevents it from drying out. It hasnt made me break out at all (I have occassional moderate acne)
