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.

I guess this product either works for you or doesn't. Maybe I used it too late but for me it just made my skin itch and peal? I do have sensitive skin. Instead of paying $$ I just use vitamin E gel.

I used this for a few weeks and saw slight results but stopped using it because I was not seeing enough results. It did work better than I thought it would have

When I used the Mederma Advanced Scar Gel it took several bottles for me to see a noticeable difference and it can be quite pricey so it wasn’t worth it for me.

This is most definitely one of the fastest working scar gels I’ve ever tried! That being said, it’s not an over night eraser, but you can see a clear difference

I did not believe this gel actually worked but it truly does. After a new times of applying me scar faded away. The only downside of this product is it’s cost.

The mederma advanced scar gel worked well to lighten the appearance of my scars. It was affordable and can be picked up at any Walmart or local pharmacy store.

This has to be used constantly every single day. Which admittedly im not so great at but it eases the discomfort i get when my scars tighten up and get to dry.

I have a keloid on my upper chest and I have been unsuccessful in reducing the size, this has helped a bit but I haven’t gotten the results I was hoping for.

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.
