Mederma Scar Cream Plus SPF 30 Review
When it comes to stretch marks products many people are sceptic. This is very understandable since there are a lot of products for stretch marks in the market and many of them claim to be “miracle workers”.
However many of them are very expensive and don’t seem to work. Buying ineffective products can be a waste of time of money. If you are looking for the best cream for stretch marks, Mederma Scar Cream Plus SPF30 could be the answer to your prayers.
Mederma Scar Cream Plus SPF 30 is a doctor and pharmacist recommended scar treatment topical cream. This cream is applied to healed skin once a day to reduce its appearance over time. It contains SPF 30 not only for sun protection for the overall skin but also to prevent the scar itself from darkening. When exposed to the sun, the scar tissue darkens making it more visible. This special formulation will prevent darkening making scars look lighter; and over time almost invisible.
The product is a topical cream so it is easy to apply. Simply apply an ample amount of the product on your stretch marks or scars. Manufacturers recommend using the product once a day before bedtime but you can apply up to 3 times to help speed up the healing process.
One of the greatest benefits to using MedermaScar Cream is its effectiveness not only on new scars but also on old ones. This is good news for people who are thinking about using this product for their acne scars and also to get rid of stretch marks.
Even though this product is not really intended for stretch marks, it is still a form of scarring. Stretch marks can appear due to changes in the body like weight gain or pregnancy. Newly formed stretch marks usually have a dark reddish color that can make you feel unattractive especially during bikini season. Consistent use of the product can reduce the reddish coloring so that it looks like you made your stretch marks disappear.
If you are using this product specifically to remove stretch marks, it’s best to use it in conjunction with other Mederma products like their Stretch Marks Therapy Cream. This product works by increasing moisture content of the skin to keep it more elastic and prevent further tearing which results in more stretch marks. Combining this product with the Scar Cream SPF 30 will provide sun protection to prevent current marks from darkening while preventing the creation of new stretch marks.
By itself, Mederma Scar Cream is already a good product. It is affordable and easy to use. Many users of this product use the product three times a day to increase efficacy but once a day is good enough. Multiple applications however will speed up the healing process so you can get rid of your stretch marks more quickly. Overall, it is impressive and is a good option as one of the best creams for stretch marks.
