SkinMedica Scar Recovery Gel Review

Manufacturer’s Claim

This review focuses on Scar Recovery Gel, manufactured by SkinMedica. There are many products on the market that claim to improve the damage of a scar. A lot of products may be expensive and leave customers with little to no scar improvement. Scar Recovery Gel helps to minimize the appearance of pink or red scars, whilst also softening the area to reduce pain. The ingredients are scientifically proven and can be used on all skin types. To learn more about Scar Recovery Gel by SkinMedica, read the information below.

The main ingredient found in Scar Recovery Gel is Centelline, which helps to reduce the appearance of scars. There is, however, no indication of the ratios of the ingredients in this product.


The manufacturer states that the product be applied directly to the scar. It is suggested that Scar Recovery Gel be used in the morning as well as the evening. Use only on healed wounds. The product should be used until the redness of the scar has disappeared and the scar itself is smooth.


The price on the manufacturer’s website is $44.00 per tube, with a net weight of 14.2 g / 0.5 oz. However, the tube in the picture indicates 2 oz and there is no price given on the website for a tube of this amount. To purchase Scar Recovery Gel, one must visit their local skin care professional for a SkinMedica product. Follow the instructions on their website to find the nearest Physician to your location. SkinMedica does, however, caution one to not purchase the products from unauthorized resellers. A list of these unauthorized resellers is found on the manufacturer’s website.

Possible Side Effects

No possible side effects have been listed on the website of the manufacturer. However, Scar Recovery Gel is for external use only as it is not sterile. Wounds and cuts should be closed and cleaned before applying this product.


We were unable to find evidence of a money-back guarantee, however this might only be presented by the skin care professional that you visit. We did however find that the manufacturer will not accept any returned products purchased from unauthorized resellers. On Amazon, most customers gave a positive review about the product. Other customers were left very disappointed as the product did nothing for them.

SkinMedica Scar Recovery Gel Review – The Bottom Line

There are some things we really like about this product. Scar Recovery Gel aids in reducing the redness and roughness of a scar. It is also very easy to apply. We do, however, have a few concerns which are much greater. The product’s list of ingredients indicates a concern as well as the amounts of each ingredient. To purchase the authentic product, you have to drive to a skin care professional from SkinMedica. This can be frustrating as there is no way of buying the product online. We also struggled to find a money-back guarantee, which also leads to a concern about the effectiveness of this product. Due to these concerns, we do not recommend this product.
