All product Frequently Asked Questions
See all FAQs
Can Mederma® Stretch Marks be used on atrophic scars?

Some stretch marks are types of atrophic scars. Mederma® Stretch Marks is formulated for use on stretch marks; please use the product as directed.

Does Mederma® Intense Scar Gel work on atrophic scars?

Mederma® Intense Scar Gel can be used on atrophic scars, such as acne and chicken pox scars. It may help to smooth and soften the edges of the pox mark but will not cause the indented area to fill in. By smoothing the edges, the mark may become less noticeable.

What is the difference between Mederma® PM Intensive Overnight Cream and Mederma® Intense Scar Gel?

Some people prefer a cream to a gel. Both Mederma® PM Intensive Overnight Cream and Mederma® Intense Scar Gel work to help improve the appearance of scars with a once-daily (or nightly) application. However, Mederma® PM Intensive Overnight Cream is formulated to help your skin’s natural nighttime repair process with Tripeptol™, a skin-nourishing complex with peptides, collagen and antioxidants. Mederma® Intense Scar Gel may be used any time of day.

Just had surgery and still have stitches, when can I start using Mederma® Intense Scar Gel?

You can begin using Mederma® Intense Scar Gel as soon as your wound has closed or your stitches have been removed. Mederma® is not intended for use on open wounds. If a scab has formed, wait until this falls off. While there is still a scab or stitches present, keep your wound clean and covered.

Who should use Mederma® scar products?

Anyone with a scar can use Mederma® Intense Scar Gel. All Mederma® products should be used as directed. Read the ingredients listed on the package before use if you’ve had reactions to skincare products previously. If you are unsure if Mederma is right for you, please contact a healthcare professional for advice.
