Mederma might help some with stretch marks...but it'll cost ya.
The recommended use of Mederma for stretch marks (according to my plastic surgeon) is to apply it 3-4 times daily for 6 months to a YEAR. Now if you have one or two little stretch marks that might not seem like such a big deal (even though the stuff costs $28-29 for a relatively small tube). But if you're like me, and have a body LOADED with 'em, then that could be a very, very expensive prospect - not to mention almost impossible to do if you have a busy schedule (like I do - what am I supposed to do, go in the ladies' room at work twice a day, strip down and coat myself with the stuff??). According to my PS, if your stretch marks are NEW you MIGHT see a difference after using Mederma for an extended period of time...but then again you might not...you probably have just as good a shot by using a good emollient lotion (which shouldn't cost a lot of bucks - even my favorite lotion "The Cat's Pajamas" which I am HOOKED on, I get for like $8 on eBay.
And ya know what? They must just bug ME...because Jim never notices my stretch marks
and his eyesight is perfect!
