Life has a way of sticking it to you sometimes. When I received an invitation to review Mederma Skin Care products in early April, just a few days before having my third baby, I told the representative that I wasn’t sure how much use we’d have for the products in our household. You see, at 9 months pregnant with my third child I had no stretch marks to speak of so I had no use for that product. Silly, silly, me.
Just 2 days after I responded to that email, I had a surprise c-section and now have a lovely 10cm (give or take?) scar on my bikini line. Humming Alanis Morrisette’s “Ironic”, I have to smile and shrug – sometimes that’s just how life goes! Thankfully, a great package full of Mederma products was already on its way to me so I had something to battle my ugly scar with.
Mederma is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks – in a recent clinical study 80% of respondents reported visible improvement in the overall appearance of their stretch marks after using Mederma Stretch Mark Therapy for 12 weeks.
I didn’t start using Mederma Skin Care for Scars Gel until about 3 weeks ago because I wanted to wait until the 6 week standard healing period after my c-section had passed. That and the fact that I’m a real wimp when it comes to stitches and the entire area still creeps me out to touch it. The scar is slowly fading, though I can’t say 100% it’s because of the Mederma or just “time” since people tell me the scar does fade on it’s own. Whatever the case, I will take any help I can get to help it fade.
While no product can make a scar disappear entirely, Mederma Skin Care for Scars Gel can help them appear softer, smoother and less noticeable. It’s the #1 doctor recommended product for scars and it’s now available in Canada!
