As a mom, you want your kids to be able to forget the scars of childhood, and, for now, you probably care more about their physical scars than they do. Fortunately, there's Mederma® for Kids™.
Mederma® for Kids™ is the #1 pediatrician-recommended product for kids' scars1 resulting from cuts, scrapes, stitches, burns, bug bites and surgery. The gel goes on purple, rubs in clear and has a fun grape scent, so kids can have fun with their scar therapy. Mederma® for Kids™ is clinically shown to soften and smooth scars, providing the same benefits as the other Mederma® scar products.
In one study, parents who applied Mederma® for Kids™ to their child's scar saw a significant improvement in the overall appearance, color, texture and softness of the scars. With Mederma® for Kids™, you can remove the doubt and take charge of their scars today so they won't have to think about them tomorrow.
Mederma® for Kids™ should be evenly applied and gently massaged into the scar 3 times daily for 8 weeks on new scars, and at least 3 times daily for 3-6 months on existing scars. Begin using Mederma® for Kids™ as soon as the wound has healed and sutures have been removed. You may start using it immediately on older scars. Not intended for use on open wounds. Mederma® for Kids™ is available in a 20 gram tube that lasts about 3 months for scars up to 3 inches long.
WHAT IS MEDERMA® FOR KIDS™?
Mederma® for Kids™ is the #1 pediatrician recommended product for kids’ scars1. The greaseless topical gel is grape-scented, goes on purple and rubs in clear, so it’s fun for kids to use. Mederma® for Kids™ is made with Cepalin®, a proprietary botanical extract, and provides an easy and affordable way to soften and smooth scars resulting from cuts, scrapes, stitches, burns, bug bites and surgery.
WILL MEDERMA® FOR KIDS™ MAKE SCARS DISAPPEAR?
Nothing can make a scar completely disappear. Mederma® for Kids™ helps scars appear softer, smoother, and less noticeable. All with the goal of helping your child feel better about his or her appearance.
MY MEDERMA® FOR KIDS™ BOX SAYS “NOT INTENDED FOR USE ON OPEN WOUNDS.” AT WHAT POINT IS A WOUND CONSIDERED COMPLETELY CLOSED?
A wound is completely closed when the scab falls off or the stitches are removed. Your child can begin to use Mederma® as soon as there is no visible scab where the wound occurred and stitches have been removed. While there is still a scab or stitches present, keep the wound clean and covered - this will speed healing time and reduce the appearance of the resulting scar.
WHAT IS CEPALIN®?
Cepalin ® is the proprietary botanical extract in all Mederma® products, which works to improve the overall appearance, texture and color of scars.
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY CHILD MISSES AN APPLICATION OF MEDERMA®?
For the best results on your child's scar, you should try to apply Mederma® as directed. If your child misses applications frequently, it will take longer to see results. If you're concerned about missing applications, sign up for the Mederma® reminder program. It's a great resource for the forgetful and the diligent alike to be sure you keep up with your child's Mederma® applications.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN REGULAR MEDERMA® AND MEDERMA® FOR KIDS™?
Mederma® for Kids™ is formulated to involve children in their scar treatment. The gel has a fun grape scent and goes on purple and rubs in clear, so kids can have fun with their scar therapy. The unique color-change formula also encourages them to rub the product in completely.
IS MEDERMA® FOR KIDS™ SAFE?
Mederma® for Kids™ is a non-toxic product safe for use on kids between 2 and 12 years of age. However, if your child experiences severe itching, swelling, or scar discoloration, discontinue use immediately. If symptoms persist, contact your pediatrician.
WHEN SHOULD I START USING MEDERMA® FOR KIDS™?
As soon as your child's wound has closed and healed, and after sutures are removed. Or for older scars, you can start using Mederma® for Kids™ right away.
