Conclusion of Our SkinMedica Review
SkinMedica appears to be a promising scar treatment that can possible reduce the appearance of scars. It comes with an easy to use applicator and it does not have any known side effects which is always reassuring. However, this product is not backed by a manufacturer’s guarantee which means that if you purchase SkinMedica and are dissatisfied in any way, you cannot get your money back from the manufacturer. The lack of a manufacturer’s guarantee also suggests that the manufacturer is lacking confidence in their product’s ability. Furthermore, while SkinMedica does have an extensive formula, we found it to be lacking a key ingredient that we have found is contained in most scar treatments. This leads us to question whether or not the formula’s ingredients are enough for it to be effective. With so many scar treatments available on the market, you are better off choosing one that is backed by a strong manufacturer’s guarantee and one that has effective ingredients.
