How long do I need to use Mederma stretch mark cream for effect?

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.

Not a fan of Mederma: I am not a big advocate of mederma.
