Mederma For Acne Scars Facts Vs Fiction

The Good
  • Availability – Mederma is very easy to find. It’s sold at most drugstores and major retailers nationwide, and by online retailers such as
  • Price – Mederma is affordable, retailing at around $30.00 for a 1.7- ounce tube of the product. This makes it relatively inexpensive when compared to high-end scar products and in-office procedures, however, it should be noted that the treatment must be continued beyond the first tube – up to 3 to 6 months for existing or “older” scars
  • Formula – Mederma is a water-based, non-greasy gel, which the manufacturer states should not cause further acne breakouts or clogged pores. (Of course, it’s always smart to patch-test a new product before you apply it to your whole face!)
  • User-friendly – Mederma is quick and simple to use, and comes in a portable tube
  • Complementary Therapy — Mederma is safe to use in tandem with other over-the-counter skincare products and makeup, as well as with Dermaflage Topical Filler, so you can camouflage your scars while you wait for Mederma to show results. Check with your dermatologist before using Mederma with any prescription skin treatments
The Bad
  • Results – There is not enough clinical evidence to prove that Mederma improves the appearance of scars better than petroleum jelly, such as Vaseline, which costs far less. Also, its effectiveness appears to be linked to whether a scar is raised or indented
  • Commitment – You must be diligent about applying Mederma every day (sometimes 3 – 4 times a day) for up to 6 months for older scars
  • Ingredients – Mederma’s formula does include some chemical ingredients, which may cause irritation for some users, and some people may be allergic to the onion extract
