Who can use Mederma:
Anyone with a scar can use Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel. However, some may be sensitive to its ingredients. If you experience swelling, scar discoloration or severe itching, stop using immediately. If symptoms persist contact your doctor.
Only use Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel on closed wounds. A wound is completely closed when the scab falls off or the stitches are removed. You can begin to use Mederma® Advanced as soon as there is no visible scab where the wound occurred or your stitches have been removed. While there is still a scab or stitches present, keep the wound clean and covered – this will speed healing time and help reduce the appearance of the resulting scar.
You can safely use Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel with other cosmetic products like lotions and makeup. However, it works best when it can be easily absorbed into the skin, so it’s best to apply when your skin is clean and then allow time for it to dry before applying other products. Please consult your healthcare professional before using with other topical (on the skin) products that you purchase with a prescription.
How to use Mederma:
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 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.
A little Mederma goes a long way. 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 might 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 Scar Gel users start to see noticeable improvement after about 4 weeks of daily usage, with optimum improvement in 8 weeks.
