Mederma® offers a variety of products to help fade your scars, so it’s important to identify which suits your needs and situation. Read on to explore the options we have available, covering everything from the effects of sunlight to your children’s skin.


In this article, we’ll focus on:

  • The Mederma® scar care range
  • Best overall scar product
  • A product that works when you sleep
  • Kid-friendly scar care

The Mederma® scar care range

You currently have 3 different Mederma® scar care options to choose from:

Each of these products is specifically formulated for a given situation. They all have a unique triple benefit formula which visibly fades scars’ appearance [1,2] in just 14 days* by hydrating and regenerating skin cells, reducing redness, and helping to reduce excess collagen. Mederma® is the number 1 US doctor and pharmacist recommended scar care brand.**

Please note that Mederma® should not be applied to broken skin (i.e. not open and no scab still present at the site of injury). For best results, apply Mederma® as soon as the wound has closed.

Best overall scar product

Within the current Mederma® portfolio, Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel is a go-to product that suits most situations, including surgery scars and acne scars. Allantoin has hydrating properties that helps soften scars. This formula has been shown to be effective in improving scar appearance and feel [3].

The gel can be safely used as soon as the skin has healed to reduce scar visibility. Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel frequently ranks among the best over-the-counter scar care products in the US [4,5].

A product that works when you sleep

The Mederma® range of scar care solutions also include a cream designed to promote better skin restoration during the night.

Mederma® PM Intensive Overnight Scar Cream is specifically formulated to help your skin’s natural nighttime repair process [9,10]. Of course, it also delivers a triple benefit formula, as do all Mederma® products.

Kid-friendly scar care

Even if you proudly sport some scars from your childhood, as a parent, you are probably fond of your child’s soft, flawless skin, and likely want to keep it that way. On the other hand, if you have kids, and especially young ones, you have probably experienced how difficult it is to get them to apply anything to their skin or take any medication.

Mederma® has formulated a product that should make your life easier when it comes to fading kids’ scars. It works for all kinds of scars, such as those from cuts and insect bites. This product, Mederma® for Kids, includes some special features that will make scar care more fun for your kids.

Children love fun colours, so Mederma® for Kids is purple when it comes out of the tube and gets progressively clearer the more you rub it in. Mederma® for Kids™ also comes with a fun grape scent which will encourage your child to accept it more easily. However, despite its delicious scent, the gel is not edible, so keep an eye out!


The Mederma® range of products covers nearly all scar care situations, and you should be able to find one that suits your individual needs. When looking to protect your children’s skin, it’s worth taking the time to research your options.
