Mederma for Acne Scar Removal

Updated on May 30, 2013

Many people suffer from acne scars nowadays. As if the skin irritation that comes about because of acne weren't bad enough, horrible-looking scars and blemishes have to show up after the acne has finally been cured.

The good news is that these scars are completely harmless. However, that doesn't change the fact that some people get extremely bothered by their ugly exterior. As a matter of fact, they lose confidence in themselves because of these scars. If you happen to be riddled with these scars yourself and are hoping to revive your skin, then you have come to the right place.

What Is Mederma?

During your search for effective acne scar removal treatments, you may have come across Mederma at one point or another. In a nutshell, Mederma is a topical gel that consists of two natural ingredients: aloe vera and onion. Aloe vera is very powerful at fighting off acne scars, while onion is known to have strong anti-bacterial traits that can help reduce skin inflammation and redness, as well as tone the skin.

Ideally, Mederma should be applied onto the affected areas three times a day, though you can also apply it four times to achieve the maximum effect. Either way, doing so will help alleviate the appearance of stains and blemishes on the affected areas as needed.

Mederma can actually hide a lot of different kinds of scars. It would be very effective on you if you had hypertrophy, for example, and it works on both old and new scars, as well. The best part is that you can use Mederma on other scars, too; not just on acne scars. So, if you happened to have an accident a while back and ended up with a scar that just refuses to vanish, then you can use Mederma on that, too.

Is It Effective?

Now, if you are wondering how long it will take for Mederma to take effect, then you should know that there are various factors that will affect the overall outcome. Generally speaking, it is believed that the gel should be applied as soon as possible in order to get faster results. Apparently, the long the scars stay on your body, the longer it will take for Mederma to reduce their overall appearance.

Another great thing about this gel is the fact that it is completely natural. This means that you won't have to worry about any side effects when using it. However, if you do experience any kind of skin irritation while applying it, make sure you stop using it immediately. Also, take note that Mederma may be effective at hiding your scars, but it doesn't actual get rid of them completely. So, if you stop using the gel, your scars might come back. This is why it would be so important to apply it on a regular basis.

In other words, Mederma shouldn't be used as a permanent solution for acne scar removal, but merely as a temporary solution to hide them until they heal on their own.
