Two good resolutions for the new year: Treat scars early enough and long enough

When exactly is the right time to start scar treatment? And how long do I have to treat a scar? If you ask yourself these questions, you are not alone: many people are unsure about this.

Market research shows that most people surveyed only begin scar treatment when the scar has already formed and is clearly visible. Only 14% of patients begin treatment at the right time – as soon as the wound has closed or the stitches have been removed.

Patients seem to have little endurance when it comes to maintaining treatment. After 1 to 2 months, most people stop treating their scars, which can lead to a poorer result. Only 19% of patients continue the treatment period recommended by doctors of at least 3 to 6 months for long enough.

Patience really pays off when treating scars. The best possible results are achieved by using Mederma® early enough and long enough: a nearly invisible scar.

Two simple resolutions will ensure successful treatment:

Resolution 1: Use Mederma® as soon as the wound has closed or the stitches have been removed.

Resolution 2: Use Mederma® at least twice daily for 3 to 6 months.
