Mederma Stretch Mark Cream Safe In Pregnancy
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
Yes: These are safe to use. Do not expect magic results though. The results vary from person to person and alot depends on your genes ---how well you naturally heal.See 4 more doctor answers
No definite timeline: Stretch marks, or striae distensae, behave like scars in that they are the result of skin expansion that stretches the skin leading to skin injury with a thin, atrophic scar. Scars creams, like mederma, may help with some of the discoloration, especially if used for three to four months. Generally, discoloration should improve anyway as the stretch mark matures and lasers may help down the road.
No data.: Mederma has never been tested on pregnant women, to my knowledge, so there is no data one way or the other. My standard advice for anyone who is pregnant is, if it's not essential, don't use it until you deliver the baby. Why take unnecessary chances?
No: Mederma does little or nothing for scars. Look for silicon gel, under a variety of brands. Also, when you can, consider seeking care from a plastic surgeon for the scars. Silicon gel should be used for a minimum of two months.
Which one works best for ice pick scars or box scars on face? Mederma Scar gel or Scarzone Scar Diminishing Cream SPF 15, 1 oz?
Either one: Most doctors whom I know recommend Mederma. Both medicines have the same purpose. They are not expensive. Try one and see how it works
Scar improvement: Scar improvement can be achieved, but it takes patience. An overnight improvement is simply impossible. There is no clinical evidence to support Mederma. You need a long peel. This is achieved with tretinoins. Also, microdermabrasion and/or dermabrasion depending on scar depth. A chemical peel is also an otpion, Tretinoins, abrasions, and peels all achieve the desired skin slough. Good luck
I have burnt my eyes' orbital areas with dettol and now developed a scar. Since 15 days I am using mederma cream. What do you suggest Sir and how long will it take?
I have acne scar but they are not deep they are on the surface is there an cream that can help lighten it? Like Mederma
Not a fan of Mederma: I am not a big advocate of mederma. The active ingredient is allium cepa (onion extract) and there is weak evidence to suggest that this is beneficial but the research behind medierma is some what not convincing. While it will not hurt unless you have a topical allergic reaction, it probably will not help. You are better off to try silastic sheeting or silicone gel + sunblock.See 1 more doctor answer
HiI am 34 weeks pregnant. And I recently purchased this cream names Body Merry Stretch mark cream. Is this Safe During Pregnancy? Thanks
Yes: But it is a waste of 25 bucks. The claims are all made up by people selling it. You will get the same result with vaseline or the moisturizer of your choice. Don't be a sucker.
Sure: It is not likely to help much with stretch marks but it is not harmful to use
