Skin Care Review: Mederma

by Esmé USA

No effect

It was supposed to help reduce scars.

The product peels off after it dries.

I tried Mederma on a 5 year old keloid scar. Per package instruction, I applied a thin layer at least 2 times a day. During the two months that I was using Mederma, the scar did indeed looked like it was improving. The scar area become pinkish, I thought this meant a healing process was occurring. After I used up the tube, I didn't buy another. After a few days, I was disappointed to find that my scar plumped back to its old self. It seems that applying a thin layer of the product over the scar only made the scar looks flattened. The effect was temporary.

Product seemingly created only an illusion that my keloid scar is flattening.
