Mederma® Gel should be evenly applied and gently rubbed into the scar 3-4 times daily for 10 weeks on new scars and 3-6 months on older scars. Begin using Mederma® Gel as soon as new skin has formed, typically two or more weeks after the injury or surgery. Make sure the scab has come off naturally and any stitches have been removed. On older scars you may start using Mederma®immediately. Do not apply to broken skin.
Apply only a thin layer of Mederma® Gel. Gently massage it onto the scar until there is no shiny, wet, or sticky feeling left. If your skin appears to be dry or is flaking after you apply Mederma® Gel, you may be using too much. Try using a little less product or gently cleansing the area with mild soap and water before a fresh application. Remember that results take time, so don’t get discouraged if you do not notice results right away.
