I am and have always been skeptical of stretch mark creams. All the research I've done suggests there's just nothing that can be done about them--they're tears in the dermis that won't respond to lasers (which only causes further damage to the skin) or "miracle" creams. But I hate my stretch marks and was willing to try this product when I saw it advertised. And honestly, I am surprised to see how well it's worked. I'm on week 9 of the advised 12 weeks for old stretch marks (I've had mine since I was a kid--knees, upper arms, breasts), and I started on my upper arms. I have dark skin and light/silvery marks there, and the silvery look has all but disappeared and the light marks have seemed to darken and don't stand out as much against my skin, and they feel a lot smoother. I haven't remembered to use it every day, 2x a day, but ever since I noticed this positive change about 2 weeks ago, I've been using it like clockwork.

It's expensive, but not nearly as expensive as some of the "designer" creams that come in smaller amounts for a higher price. I've started using this on other parts of my body, and parts I think may be prone to stretch marks in the future to ward them off. Folks who expect a "cure" for stretch marks should understand that they'll never go away completely, but this product has made noticeable improvements to my decades-old stretchmarks, and for that I'm very, very happy.

I was so excited at the prospect of getting rid of my stretch marks after just having a baby. Unfortunatly the night that I started to use the cream I broke out with a ton of itchy bumps! My stretch marks are so extensive that I covered my legs, stomach and sides in the cream and now, as I'm full-blown allergic to the stuff, I am itchy uncontrollably... all over. Other than that (haha) it's great. I found it was definatly a more affordable option. I just , recommend that you try it in a small area at first, wait 24 hours, before covering a large area.

    Comments about Mederma Stretch Marks Therapy Advanced Cream Formula, 5.29 oz:

    I just lost 50 pounds going through chemo. I was left with lots of stretch marks. I decided to try Mederma. It is easy to use. It seems to be softening them so they look better.~~ One day I was looking at my feet and noticed the toes and bottoms were covered with hard dry skin that would not come off. Desperate, I used this cream on my feet. It worked! After just a few applications most of the dead skin peeled off. I think this is wonderful stuff!!

    Comments about Mederma Stretch Marks Therapy Advanced Cream Formula, 5.29 oz:

    I don't have a weight problem, but like most women, I have stretch marks around my waist and thighs. So I was excited to finally try this product when I found it in my pharmacy. I had tried so many other products but none had worked and were just too messy. With this product, I was glad to see it smelled great and it was not messy at all. Sometimes I think I hadn't applied it three times a day like the instructions say, but I do recall being strict with the routine for a long while. After using it for an entire three months because I didn't want to waste my [$] that I had spent on it, it still hadn't improved the look of my stretch marks. They were still dark and very noticeable. They were definitely smoother, though. If you were to rub your hands on them, you couldn't tell they were there, until you look at them, of course.Great, but didn't work for me.

        Comments about Mederma Stretch Marks Therapy Advanced Cream Formula, 5.29 oz:

        I was skeptical at first and I thought there would never be a product to take away my stretch marks. This product delivers, along with the Mederma name. Keep in mind that it does take a long time (minimum of 10 weeks before you can even begin to see results). But just keep using it and you will notice the stretch marks will begin to fade. It may work a little faster on newer stretch marks versus older ones. There is a manufacturers coupon for $4 off that is always included in the box, so over time that may help with the cost.

          Comments about Mederma Stretch Marks Therapy Advanced Cream Formula, 5.29 oz:

          I have used for about 8 wks starting a couple months after delivery/pregnancy. The stretch marks are less noticeable by both color and smoothing of the texture. It is expensive, but I'm buying another bottle in hopes to continue the progress. It is better than regular mederma as it only requires twice daily application - and sometimes I have forgotten to apply it, but it still seems to be working.

          This product is awesome, it already started making my stretch marks go away after 2 weeks. It's a little pricey but in my opinion it is well worth it to get my self confidence and pre baby body back.

          Delivery was on time and the package was in good condition. The delivery man was very presentable as well.

              I used this after i had my first child. I never saw any results and I used it the recommended time. Nothing changed..didn't work for me at all. I'm sad about it because it was so expensive. Save your money and get bio oil instead.

                Comments about Mederma Stretch Marks Therapy Advanced Cream Formula, 5.29 oz:

                This stuff is fantastic. I have stretch marks on my stomach, hips and thighs from weight gain. I have since lost all the weight and kept it off, but I was really unhappy with my stretch marks. I haven't been using Mederma for very long, and the stretch marks have faded remarkably. The texture has also greatly improved, I can barely feel them at all. I'd say my stretchmarks were probably about two years old when I began using Mederma. Don't expect the impossible, your stretch marks aren't going to disappear. But I would highly recommend using this stuff. And use it as directed, don't use it once a week and then complain that it isn't working. Oh, and about the smell. I think that the people saying that there is no unpleasant smell are referring to Mederma for Scars, not Mederma for Stretchmarks (I originally made the same mistake, and I've used both products). Mederma for Stretchmarks has a VERY intense cheap soap smell. I mean three hours after you put it on people around you will still be smelling soap, even through your clothes. But not nearly enough of a con for me to regret the diminishment of my stretchmarks. : )I noticed one of the main ingredients was from onions, which I thought was strange, so I did some searching and found this study:[@], and for anyone wondering, I have very light skin. I've heard that matters, so.. there it is.
