Frequently Asked Questions:
What is Mederma® Gel?
Mederma® Gel is the first topical gel created to help reduce the appearance of scars. It's made from a proprietary botanical extract to form a greaseless gel that is pleasant-smelling, easy to use, and most importantly, effective.
When should I start using Mederma® Gel?
As soon as your wound has healed or your sutures have been removed. Or, start using Mederma® Gel immediately on older scars.
Who should use Mederma® Gel?
Anyone with a scar can use Mederma® Gel. When used as directed, it's safe for all ages. However, some people may be sensitive to its ingredients, so if you experience severe itching, swelling or scar discoloration, stop using Mederma® Gel immediately. If symptoms persist, you should contact your doctor.
So what makes Mederma® Gel different?
Well first of all, Mederma® Gel is the #1 doctor-recommended product for scars. It's also an invisible topical gel. So, unlike cosmetic pads or silicone sheeting, your scar management is never noticeable.
Does Mederma® Gel make scars disappear?
No product can make scars disappear completely. But Mederma® Gel can help them appear softer, smoother and less noticeable.
What is Cepalin®?
Cepalin® is the proprietary botanical extract used in Mederma® Gel. It works to soften hardened scar tissue and improve the color, texture and overall appearance of scars.
Can't I just use a store brand scar product?
While store brand scar products may share some of the same ingredients as Mederma® Gel, they are not the same as Mederma® Gel. Mederma® Gel is a patented formula, with a proprietary ingredient, Cepalin®, and it cannot be duplicated.
Mederma® Scar Gel should be evenly applied and gently rubbed into the scar 3-4 times a day for 8 weeks on new scars and 3-4 times a day for 3-6 months on existing scars.
Begin using Mederma® Gel as soon as your wound has healed or your sutures have been removed. You may also start using it immediately on older scars.
