Mederma® offers a variety of scar care products to help improve the appearance of 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 on various skin types 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 three different Mederma® scar care options to choose from:

Each of these products is specifically formulated for a given situation. They all feature a unique formula with triple benefits that improves the appearance[1,2] of scars from 14 days* by hydrating and conditioning the skin, improving skin texture and visibly reducing the redness of scars.

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 healed.

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 helping to reduce the appearance of scars[3].

The gel can be safely used as soon as the skin has healed to help reduce scar visibility. Mederma® Advanced Scar Gel is the no.1 best selling scar care brand in the United States [4].

A product that works when you sleep

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

Mederma® PM Intensive Overnight Scar Cream is specifically formulated to support your skin’s own natural night time restoration process. Like all Mederma® products it features our unique formula with triple benefits and can be used on older scars, burn scars, surgical scars and keloid scars.

Kid-friendly scar care

Even if you proudly sport scars from your own childhood, no parent wants their child to suffer the same fate. If your little ones does pick up a scrape, burn, pox scar or alike, Mederma® has a product designed to appeal just to them.

Just like our other products, Mederma for Kids is formulated to help improve the appearance of scars. It includes 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 as you rub it in. Mederma® for Kids™ also comes with a pleasant 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.
