I got this cream because i have stretch marks on the side of arms from weight loss. I started using this once a day and have noticed some difference. Mederma Advanced Scar gel works to effectively fade acne scars, surgery scars, stretch marks, pimple scars and just about any other skin imperfection that you might find and have as it relates to scarring of the skin. It's a blend of all-natural ingredients that fortify my skin with proteins and vitamins. This formula helps reduce the appearance of scars caused by acne, burns, and other factors in a way that's both natural and effective. While I am continuing to apply this product to my stretch marks in hopes that they will clear up more, I have had success with this clearing up a mark on my arm from my parrot scratching me accidentally .
