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.

It kind of works? My scar didn't feel as bad after but you can still see it. Not sure if it's a total wash because there is a textural difference

Smell is bad. It feels pretty gross. Dries on and kind of crumbles off. Would be nice to have something with a pleasant scent that just rubs in.

This overtime will definitely reduce the appearance of scars. You have to use it religiously and after a few weeks you will begin to see results.

I first used this when I was a teenager and got a bad cut playing softball. I put this on as directed and it faded so good you can barely see it

I used this cream fairly consistently and i don’t believe it made much of a difference. I think it would have healed the same without the cream.

Only scar gel used, but highly recommend! I applied twice per day for weeks and scar went away quickly! Very effective and totally worth the $$$

Kind of on the pricey side. I wish the bottle was bigger for the price. My stretchmarks started fading a little and then I ran out of ointment

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.
