Hi all,

Bio-Oil is probably one of the most popular or well known OTC treatments for scars (and stretch marks). Does anyone have any experience of it?

I used to use it and do think it made some difference, though I wasn't so keen on the day to day practicality of it as it's an oil and is, well, oily! You need to give it time to dry and settle in to your skin, but it glides on to scars and can be massaged in very easily. It's rather pricey but a lot of people have had a positive experience of it, it's just not a quick fix. I think it took several weeks, probably months, of regular use for me to notice some difference; I found it did improve the smaller, finer scars I had (almost invisible now) but larger or more raised scars and deeper stretch marks will likely take longer.

Re: Bio-Oil

Great information. Bio oil is the best treatment to get rid of stretch marks. I totally agree with the point deeper stretch marks takes a longer time for treatment.
