Experience with Mederma scar cream for skin
This Mederma scar cream is packed in a seal proof metallic tube. I wish the tube could have been of plastic since I think that these metallic tubes lead to wastage of the product. Anyways, this is a cream as this is being referred as a scar cream but this is actually a gel. This is almost transparent and has a very faint smell. The gel like texture is very watery and when I use this on the skin it feels very light. Though this will take a couple of minutes to get the gel fully absorbed in the skin. This is written on the pack that this cream or gel has to be used 2-3 times in a day. For the new scars this will heal them for 2 months and for 3-6 months for the old scars.
Results of Mederma Scar Cream
My mother used this on the knee scars that she has, the scar is a little dark in color and is an old scar. So, she used this 2 times in a day morning and evening. It is been 2 months now and she said that there is small change in the appearance like the scar has been slightly faded. This is good, so hopefully that knee scar will get faded even more after 2 months more. But she also says that this works very slow. I also felt that this scar cream is quite slow in working.
I too use this on my chin. Actually I had a pimple on my chin 2 months ago. When that healed there was a black mark left which used to look really bad. So, I applied this gel 2 times in a day. This was supposed to be used 3-4 times in a day but honestly, who’s got the time to apply anything 3-4 times in a day. 2 times in a day is still feasible as when I wash the face in the morning and night time I can apply the cream/gel. But during the day when someone is working then most probably they will forget to use, so same was with me. I only used this Mederma scar cream 2 times in a day.
I have been using this for the past 1 month now and feel that the marks have been lightened in the day light this is not visible at all. But indoor there is some light grayish dot still there. This was a new mark so this has healed at rather decent speed. I will recommend this product to the people who have got marks which are old and they just wish to get rid of that.
Rating: 3.75 Out of 5
Final take: I think the price is high as the big 20 g tube is for 700 rupees and the smaller 10 g tube is for 10 g. Since you have to apply that for 3-4 times and for at least 2 months. I am doubting that a tube of 10 g will last for 4-5 weeks. This is because the quantity taken is little less. It also depend on the size of the scar, if the scar is small the tube will last longer.
Other than the price, I have other concern which is the speed, this works rather slow. Therefore, I will advise you to scrub your skin 2-3 times in a week so that the dead skin can be removed, the new skin is less blemished. With regular scrubbing and the effects of this cream can be expedited. Since the skin will also renew faster.
