Couldn't you just use onion juice???

I was looking at a tube of Mederma one day, which is, what, $15 or something? It's just onion extract in a cream base. I refuse to pay that much. I suppose I could just use onion juice or make an extract with onion and alcohol. If it smells, who cares? I could use it at night. What do y'all think?

    of course!

    what do you think women did before they put things in fancy packages, added stabilizers and fillers and told us we had to pay $$$$$ for the privilege of using the stuff?

    In all honesty the stuff doesnt work at all..save your money. There is nothing great for scars. Scars will naturally fade from pink to white with time. The best thing you can do for scars is scar message to soften the scar....nothing will get rid of scars or strechmarks

    ^^^ not true at all!

    i bought a TINY piece of this for a fairly large sum of money several years ago when i badly cut my hand. it was MONTHS later and the scar was large and i had accidentally bumped that area against something and the pain was horrendous. i went to a local medical supply shop and got the smallest sheet available.

    it took a couple of months, but the scar is only noticeable if you know what you're looking for.

    Thats great that it worked for you :D But the scar is still there...what I am saying is nothing can make a scar go away completely...but they will fade with time. The 5 dermatologists that I work with will say the same thing...patients always come in asking about scars and unfortunately nothing will make them go away...some things will help lighten them quicker.

    Thanks Rou for posting this link! :) I have a really bad small round scar on the front of my leg (looks like a bullet wound or cigarette burn) from falling on something. It happened a few months ago and is completely healed now, but dark as hell. The contrast is extremely noticeable and being the vain person that I am, I put a small round bandaid over it or cover it with some Kryolan concealer that I have. (Yeah, I know there are people with much worse problems, but we're talking about ME right now. )

    I'm going to purchase the product. It can't do no worse than the stuff I'm currently using (Mederma, Jurlique's Arnica Lotion and Cream). It's slightly lighter, but not much.
