Action
Any type of skin injury or wound can lead to an unappealing scar. Ideally, a scar is smooth and flat, and blends in the surrounding skin. But sometimes scar formation can be excessive and highly visible, leading to unsightly scars. Apart from the optical impact, it can influence the patient's general well-being. The patient may feel more self conscious and less confident.
With Mederma, the patient can start taking control of the skin's appearance.
How can Mederma help: Mederma can visibly reduce all types of scar including scarring caused by acne, accidents, surgeries, injuries or burns.
The proactive gel formula contains a special combination of the active ingredients Cepalin, Allantoin and Aloe Vera to promote the healing process of the skin and improve the colour, texture and overall appearance of the scar. The PM Overnight cream helps to complement the increase nighttime regeneration of the skin.
