Does Mederma work on keratosis?

Not a fan of Mederma: I do not recommend mederma as I have not seen the benefits of treatment. It needs to be applied 4 times a day which is not practical for the typical individual. Furthermore the true science is lacking. ...Read more

How do I clean a curling iron burn? How long does it take, and does Mederma work for scarring?

Curling iron burn: How bad of a burn? Did it blister? If you are worried it isn't healing or that it is infected, please have someone look at it. If it isn't too serious, you can try an over the counter burn remedy. When it starts to heal, then you can use the Mederma to improve the scar. ...Read more

Will Mederma really work on scars?

Will Mederma really work on scars?

No: Mederma and the majority of topical treatment for scars have been shown to have no improvement on normal wound healing, (but it won't hurt.) vitamin e and massage have some very week evidence of benefit.

Sorry, i wrote a previous question too. Which would work better for scars? Mederma or silicone? Thanks!

Sorry, i wrote a previous question too. Which would work better for scars? Mederma or silicone? Thanks!

Probably silicone: They both can help but the best answer is the one that you use correctly. Mederma's instruction is to massage the cream on the scar about four times a day; no one really does this. Silicone solution has to be applied daily and allowed to dry. Silicone pads have to be held in place on the scar for months. Use the product that works best for your scar location and lifestyle. ...Read more
