Frequently asked questions about Mederma® Gel

Does Mederma® make the scar disappear completely?

No, a scar is permanent and will never disappear completely. However, Mederma® significantly reduces the visibility of scars. It is important to continue treatment for longer periods of time (3-6 months).

When will I see the first signs of success with Mederma®?

Scar treatment needs patience, as the injured skin takes time to heal. The first signs of treatment success with Mederma® are usually experienced as reduced redness, relief of tension and less itching. Temporary itching is, however, often a sign that a scar is healing well, and should not cause immediate concern.

How long should I apply Mederma® for?

To achieve the best possible results, apply Mederma® 2 to 3 times daily for at least 3 months. You can continue the treatment up to a year, if necessary. Mederma® is extremely well-tolerated, even in the course of long-term use.

Will I still be able to wear make-up during treatment with Mederma® ?

Certainly. You just need to make sure you apply Mederma® anti-scar gel before putting on your make-up. This allows the active ingredients to be absorbed into the skin as well as possible.

Does Mederma® work on older scars?

Yes, even scars that are over a year old can be treated. Some older scars dry out and become hard, in which case Mederma® should be massaged in 3 times daily for at least 6 months. Mederma® can also reduce a scar’s height and redness, and smooth the tissue so that your scar becomes less conspicuous. Combining Mederma® with ultrasound therapy improves effectiveness.
