Merz North America, the makers of Mederma, introduced Mederma PM Intensive Overnight Scar Cream, a new scar cream formulated to work at night, when skin naturally regenerates faster. Mederma PM is clinically shown to improve the overall appearance, size, color, and texture of scars, making them softer, smoother, and less noticeable, according to the company. The cream is also formulated with Tripeptol, a skin-nourishing complex with peptides, collagen, and antioxidants that complement the increased nighttime regeneration of the skin to promote healthy looking skin. Mederma PM should be applied once-nightly and can be used with moisturizers and anti-aging creams, but patients are cautioned to consult their healthcare professionals before using Mederma PM with topical prescription products. Mederma PM may be used on scars on the face and the body resulting from injury, cuts, surgery, burns, and acne. To help ensure effective and appropriate product use, Mederma offers text, email, and calendar reminders. Additionally, an iPhone app, the Mederma Progress Tracker, allows users to take photos of their scars every few days and create a time-lapse movie to see how Mederma helped improve the appearance of their scars over time. The app is available in the iTunes App store. Mederma PM is available in a 1-ounce tube and 1.7-ounce jar.
