I have been using this product for almost 8 weeks now and I can really notice a big difference in my skin. The stretch marks are becoming less red and more of a flesh color and they are becoming very smooth....infact, if I just look in the mirror I can barely notice them anymore because they have faded that much. I will say that I think they work better on new marks better than old ones, but it WORKS period! The only complaint I would have is that the bottle does not last very long. One bottle lasts me aprox. 3 weeks. I don't mind buying more though because it is the first product I have found that actually works. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone!

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 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.

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

I'm a mother of two. My oldest is 9, and my youngest 4. I have pretty old marks, and it says it won't work on the ones that are already lightened/silvery. I've been applying it two times a day, as instructed, this is my second month, and I can see the improvement on my deeper marks. I had one somewhere that was so deep that it would sting sometimes, and this has helped level it out to about the same spot as my other skin. It doesn't hurt anymore. My family has also been telling me that my other deep marks have been lightening.

I can't tell yet how well this will work, but it has improve the feeling, leveled out my deeper marks, and increased my self-esteem. I wish there were a way to make the deep ones as light as the silvery ones, but it looks like they'll still be there. However, they do look better.

I'm not sure if I would recommend this to anyone. If you have the spare money, and are willing to put that to your self esteem, I would say go for it.

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

    I've been using this product now for about 12 weeks. I have seen a minimal improvement. The advertising makes it out to be some kind of "miracle" cream. Unfortunately, I would have to say it hasn't really lived up to all its hype. I am about to re-order my third tube, but I think that will be my final order. Wish results would've been better.

          I have used this product for 3 months and haven't seen any improvement AT ALL. On the directions it says to give it 8 weeks and I gave it more than that and it didn't do anything.

                  you know im not one for doing these comments but i will admit that this does work if you are not willing to put it on twice a day every day then dont bother wasting your time or money this doesnt start to show the effects untill literally 6 weeks. It doesnt make them disappear but they do begin to fade and stop it from getting worse

                    This product seemed to be working, even after just a week. However, just when I thought I had found a great stretch mark product, I started to get itchy little red bumps on the area I had been applying it to. With each application it got worse and worse and I ended up having to give it the boot..... :-(

                    I use it twice daily as recommended and in 6 weeks I see a huge difference in the appearance of my stretch marks! I would usually nor spend so much on lotion but this is well worth the cost! (my stretch marks are 11 months old) WONDERFUL PRODUCT and true advertising!!

                    I got this product when my daughter was 18 months old and my marks still hadn't faded as much as I'd like for bathing suit season. Even though I did not follow the recommended applications, twice daily for 12 weeks, my husband (in less than 6 weeks) made a comment about my stretch marks going away! He NEVER comments on my body, particularly areas I don't like. So he must have been confident in his statement. He also wouldn't have known if I was using it or not. I only applied it once a day generally in the mornings after my shower. I'm still using it and seeing even more improvement! (still under 12 weeks) This stuff is totally worth the money! Although I do wish it was cheaper or came with in a larger size. But in the long run its still cheaper than laser alternatives. And even though the smell is good, its a bit strong for my liking.

                        I haven't even been using this product for a month yet and they say you will see results after 4 weeks. I can already tell that its going to work well. I'm excited to see how it turns out after 12 weeks. I wish that it wasn't so expensive but obviously its worth it to me because Ive already purchased two bottles.
