I Used A Great Scar Cream Called Mederma…

By Adam Pick on April 2, 2008

I just received a great, often-overlooked question from Tim who asks, “Hey Adam – I just saw the pictures of your chest scar after heart surgery. I’m curious to know… Did you use any special creams or gels to assist in the incision healing?”

The answer to that question is a definite “Yes!” I used a product called Mederma. The gel is an over-the-counter product that does not require a prescription. You can purchase Mederma at most pharmacies. If you are interested, they have a $2 off coupon at the Mederma website. 🙂

However, please make sure that you ONLY USE MEDERMA as directed. Do not use Mederma right away. I think you need to wait two weeks after your surgery. And, I made sure it was okay with my surgeon, before I started using it. My surgeon, Dr. Vaughn Starnes, looked at the Mederma ingredient listing on the package and said, “This looks pretty good. Go ahead and try it out!”

Keep on tickin!

Thank you for the tip! Your scar looked fantastic! I have used creams, 85 block over tape … Really attractive! My scar is 7 inches but long enough to look yuck especially on a female.

You look nice but unfortunately, it didn’t work out for me 🙁

Whoa! Glad it worked for you. I bought this product for my acne scars for both sides of my cheeks & the temples of my head. I used it as directed & applied it 2 times a day but after a day or two, my skin became irritated & red from it. I don’t even have sensitive skin & this was the first product that has EVER irritated & made my skin red. I didn’t find it worth trying

Very
good post. Mederma include Allium cepa and the ordinary onion as an energetic element.
Onion grasps bioflavonoid with antihistamine and an anti-proliferative consequence
that proceed very well to ease both standard and spiteful cells. Any one grasp
scars over the precious region can try Mederma to mend and soft the feel of the
skin.

My brother had given dermalmd scar serum to me as a gift after I had a surgery done on my lower abdomen. I used it for about 4 months and my scar is barely noticeable. Highly recommend it.
