Take charge of your skincare with Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel. It’s a convenient, once-daily treatment that is clinically proven to visibly reduce the appearance of scars. It works for many types of scars old and new, including acne scars, surgery scars, and scars from burns, cuts, and other injuries. And, Mederma®Advanced Scar Gel is the #1 doctor and pharmacist-recommended scar care brand.

Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel should be evenly applied and gently rubbed into the scar 1X daily for 8 weeks on newer scars and 3-6 months on older scars. Begin using Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel as soon as new skin has formed, typically two or more weeks after the injury or surgery. Make sure the scab has come off naturally and any stitches have been removed. On older scars you may start using Mederma®immediately. Do not apply to broken skin.


Apply only a thin layer of Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel. Gently massage it into the scar until there is no shiny, wet, or sticky feeling left. If your skin appears to be dry or is flaking after you apply Mederma®Advanced Scar Gel, you may be using too much. Try using a little less product or gently cleansing the area with mild soap and water before a fresh application. Remember that results take time, so don’t get discouraged if you do not notice results right away. Generally, Mederma® Advanced users start to see noticeable improvement after about 4 weeks of daily usage, with optimum improvement in 8 weeks.

Mederma® Advanced is available in a 50-gram tube in the skin care aisle and a 20-gram tube in the first aid aisle.

Are use this for a scar on my chest. It’s seem to work pretty well. I have noticed the scar starred to flatten out after using for about three months. Have not used any other brands to compare

I can honestly say very little change in my scars. I did see a light improvement in that they lightened a little. But after 6 months of use twice a day I was hoping for something a bit better.

I only used this product for a short time so I didn't get the full effect. But I did use it for a month and it lightened my scar. If I continued using it I feel it would have faded a lot more.

I had the ugliest scar from an exercise bike I used this and like magic it disappeared. I would highly recommend this product and the tube lasts forever so economically this is worth the price

Great scar gel. Trust the brand and I have seen results. Reasonably priced for how effective the cream is. Texture is a little runny but a little goes a long way. Would recommend to others.

I definitely feel like it reduces redness of your scar and helps fade over the months but the recommended amount of applications is a bit much. If all I thought about was a scar on my body then maybe....but otherwise I’m too busy to apply 3-5 times a day.

I’ve used this over the years. I’m not sure it makes too much of a difference considering the older a scar gets the more it fades on it’s own. I still feel like this is worth a shot, but it’s not going to completely get rid of a scar.

Admittedly my scar is pretty raised and discolored and probably needs much more diligence on my part, but, from the use I have gotten from it my scar definitely lightened and looks smaller

If you stick with it, it may help with the coloring of some scars. I really didn't see a whole lot of improvement in my glass cuts on my hand. I had a glass explode and I have a jagged cut.

I always see commercials for this on TV but is it worth the price and does it work on large scars? I recently burnt my leg with my curling iron and don't want to have a permanent mark.
