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.

Been using for about a month and a half and haven't noticed a huge difference. But some difference. Will continue to use until I run out

This is a great product to get at the drugstore to help with scar healing. I’ve used it a few times to help me as I am massaging the scar to break it up and it has worked well.

I have been using this on my scar that's on my foot since my surgery. It will never really go away but it has faded a little bit.

I’ve used this on a scar on my back I got years ago and I think it’s helping even though I didn’t use it right away! You need a lot to see results so buy two packs but otherwise it’s really worth the investment!

I used this from a scar on my face. It helped the scar fade but not go away. I reccomend but not if you want the scar to  completely go away

It helped a little but if you have some pretty deep or intense scars it's not going to make them go away, just fade the appearance overall.

It has been a while since I have used Mederma scar gel. It is something you have to use consistently for 8 weeks or else you don’t see results. It was all I knew about at a kid but now there are all kinds of oils around to help with scars that I would use over this.

Had surgery that required me to have multiple incisions. I applied this for several weeks after and you can barely even see where the scars were. I was very impressed with this product.

It’s okay. To be honest I haven’t noticed any or much difference in a scar a I have from an elbow surgery

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.
