I bought this product for my face to help diminish dark acne spots from years of breaking out and picking at my skin. I only used it for a week and swear I thought I was already seeing some improvement, but I had to stop because it caused me to break out terribly, especially in my cheek area which is the main area I needed treated. I am going to continue using this on a scar on my leg that I just got from a skin biopsy and see how it works for that since I have this jar that will now last forever. This stuff absorbs into the skin so well, non-sticky, and smells nice. I would recommend anyone to try this out and see how you react. It's an amazing price, much better than Mederma.
*Update- been using about twice a day on the scar on my leg. haven't used it for long but i see absolutely no improvement yet. will keep trying and update in a few weeks.
This stuff is a miracle worker! I have extremely acne prone skin with horrible hormonal acne. I started using this to get rid of acne scars and it actually cleared my skin up to about 90% clear! My skin hasn't been this clear in over a year! I've been using it for just about a month and my skin is starting to slowly look better, it's not an overnight miracle it definitely takes time. I would highly recommend this product. Compared to Mederma the price is lower and it doesn't have parabens and other nasty chemicals. I use this morning and night. I typically wash my face with a mild cleanser then tone with a mixture of witch hazel and tea tree oil and then in the morning I use clean & clear dual action moisturizer but at night I use acne.org benzoyl peroxide I then wait for 5-10 minutes at the least before I apply the Derma e scar gel so that everything else has been absorbed into my skin. After applying the Derma e scar gel in the morning I wait at least another 5-10 mins before applying my mineral makeup so that it has time to absorb.
Let me begin by saying I first tried Mederma and it made my face itch really bad, I couldn't leave it on without irritating my the skin on my face. Derma E was not irritating and was really pleasant to use.
This isn't a quick scar fix but in the 3 months that I've been using this product I have noticed a difference in my skin's texture and my past acne scars seem to be really smoothing out.
This is day 4 and I think that I see a small difference. My face seems more vibrant and even and it seems like the acne scars are reducing in redness and swelling!! Will keep using the gel for now!
I have only been using this product as directed for about a week now and can already see results. I had my son Jack two months ago and my stretch marks (which were purple/red in color) have already faded a lot! I'm excited to continue using this product and see what the results will be. the jar has a lot in it so I don't see myself running out anytime soon. It feels good on my skin and the fragrance is also pleasant. I would recommend using Derma E scar gel to others.
This product contains onion extract which is supposed to be good at treating scarring and antiaging. This product doesn't necessarily get rid of my acne scars but since using it I have noticed it makes my skin appear to be more even and smooth. I have been on and off with this product becuse I was unsure about the effectiveness and whether it was worth re-purchasing but after using it again I noticed that it did have impact on my skin. This isn't a miracle acne scar fix and is only a temporary solution but If you continue using this for months one end you will notice a differnce in skin texture. However if you don't use this for a long period of time and only judge it in the first weak you will not see the potential results. I also find that this product does not clog my pores or cause me any additional out-breaks.
I do recomend this product but for me it's not a holy grail.
I should have taken a "before" photo before I started using this, but I didn't because I didn't know if it would work.
That said, I'd lost all hope for my skin. Evey day I'd wake up to the same old bright red scars of acne past, and fresh new pimples to keep the nightmare going. My mom told me about Derma E's scar gel, and was intrigued, but never tried it until a couple months ago. I wish I tried it sooner.
It's a clear, light gel with a pleasant fragrance and a very refreshing cooling effect (don't think menthol-style cooling, think aloe-style). It's best applied with a clean q-tip and massaged into skin with clean fingers after washing or scrubbing. It actually moisturizes, so unless you have ridiculously dry skin, you shouldn't need a moisurizer. I use it at night after washing, and use Derma E's Problem Skin moisturizer in the morning.
At first, I thought this product would do nothing, mainly because of my depressed hopelessness. But I kept urging myself forward, telling myself I needed to get my money's worth of the product and maybe, within a month or so's time, it would take effect.
And goodness, it did.
Month 1, I started to see slight improvement, but by month 2, my skin- without makeup- is noticeably brighter, plumper, more even, and most importantly, my scars are shrunken and lightened to an extremely noticeable degree. I can't believe it. My mom hugged me this morning after I jubilantly showed her my makeup-less face. This is the best my skin has looked in years, and I'm only 22. I've had awful skin ever since puberty.
This gel usually costs around $14.99, depending on where you find it. (I get mine at Imagebeauty.) While the price tag may seem high, it's worth every penny because it lasts FOREVER, its effects are very apparent, and the ingredients are very close to being all-natural. No parabens, dyes, alcohol, synthetic fragrance. All wonderful.
I feel so strongly about this product. If you have scars and patience, it may be the best thing thing that's ever happened to your skin. Now, mind you, I use Derma E's problem skin cleanser and moisturizer in the morning, Trader Joe's tea tree face wash and Derma E scar gel at night, always use a clean cloth every 2 days, drink alot of water, and use raw tea tree and Clean&Clear Persa-gel for spot treatments. That's my regimen. Maybe adding Derma E's scar gel to yours would help. I'm human evidence that it can make a difference.
I owe Derma E a thank-you letter.
I won't buy this product again, because it lasts forever.
It lightened my hyper-pigmentation (4 month old, dark acne scar) to a lightness that is barely noticeable with concealer.
Might've made breakouts smaller, but not too sure.
Don't check to see if your scar is lightened every single day, because I looked at my scar in the mirror after weeks, and it lightened.
Packaging requires a clean Q-tip to apply.
I don't like the "natural fragrance" though.
The scent is alright. I like it. . .
Label has attractive colors, and the box it came in wasn't too wasteful.
My skin: some pitted and rolling scars on cheeks
Application: This comes in a jar, (like all Derma-e products do) so that is an automatic turn-off since it's completely unhygienic. I bought two jars, used twice a day until both of them ran out. It smells a bit like Mederma and feels refreshing on my skin. However, I saw absolutely no difference in my skin texture or scarring over the course of using this product. Would not repurchase or recommend.
I tried this product a few years back when I was in college - I'm not sure if it has been reformulated since but the packaging was different then. I had a mishap and burned my left hand in hot cooking oil which left a very bad scar. I started using this product a few months after and the scars started to fade.I have to admit that I was very dedicated to this product which is very unlikely of me, normally I give up easily when I don't see improvement but I used this daily 3-4 times and can say that I saw great results but it did take time and effort. After using this for a few months the scars were totally gone.
