A product called bio-oil, they said for scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, aging&dehydrated skin, how far its write and do you recommend to use it?

Nothing special!: There's nothing wrong with bio-oil except its claims to cure everything from acne to scars, to wrinkles and age spots. Wow, that must be some great stuff! but really, all it does is moisturize and lubricate dry flaky skin. Any good lotion will do the same. If it really did all it claims, it would be regulated as a pharmaceutical by the fda. If sold as a cosmetic, it's proven not to "work" as drug. ...Read more

Stretch marks: Hyperpigmentation is simply a sign of inflammation. In the setting of rapid weight gain that may be associated with pregnancy or simply weight gain, the dermis of the skin is injured. Injury is associated with inflammation. This causes cells in the skin to deposit melanin, leading to darkening of stretch marks. With time, the color will fade. It may take 6-12 months. ...Read more

Does the dermapen skin care procedure really work for scars and stretch marks? How many procedures does it take to see results?

Does the dermapen skin care procedure really work for scars and stretch marks? How many procedures does it take to see results?

Perhaps: While i don't have personal experience, there is evidence that mild "dermal wounding" such as is achieved with the dermapen products can stimulate a mild amount of collagen production. It does take several treatments and the change is likely minimal. Also, as the skin continues to age, the change is not permanent. ...Read more
