Description of MEDERMA:
It is a semi sticky transparent or translucent Gel kind of cream that comes in aluminum Tubes and looks like an ointment. But after the application of this product and rubbing on the skin it leaves a thin film or layer after the gel gets dried on the skin.
How to use Mederma on Skin?
Take a small peanut size drop of gel from the tube and apply it on effected area with finger tips evenly. After applying the even coat start massaging it in a circular motion till it gets dried and you don’t see any gel kind of gel on your finger (or until You will get a thin film of gel on your finger). Use it 3 to 4 times(Morning, afternoon, evening and night before sleep) a day for 3 to 6 months to see the effective results.
Pros and Cons of Mederma :
Application is very easy.
Works best for burn marks that occurred due to spillage of hot water or Oil.
Works effectively on marks appeared due to accidents
Fades the dark spots and acne of few skin types (Not for all)
It works for chickenpox scars too but need to apply more gel
Available in any medical shop
Very expensive for a 10 gm tube.
Healing process is very slow. Seriously damn slow. It takes months to years to heal completely.
To see the results of how it is working, you need to wait at least for 4 to 6 months.
For few skin types after application of gel the skin gets irritated with itchiness and becomes red with little burning sensation.
Need to apply 3 to 4 times a day for effective results for almost 3 to 6 months to start seeing the effective results.
Overall Review about Mederma:
I don’t say this is perfect or super cream for any kind of scars as they mentioned in their caption. This is one of those creams that are available in market to show its effect with so much time. The advantage of this cream is… It definitely show its effect for scars that are not deeper by taking at least 3 to 6 months. But do we really need to wait so much when we have many other alternatives like Bio-Oil in the market for same purpose ? If you ask me… I would say… I can’t wait months and years to get my scars go away. Other way it is expensive too, to buy that much quantity to use it for 6 months to 1 year which needs around 100 to 200 grams of gel. 10 grams is 450/-. So, I just can’t spend 5000 to 8000 blindly to know whether it will actually work or not.
That’s all dear… now go with your decision if you wish it buy it still..
