Question Mederma vs Bio-Oil - March 4th 2011, 09:25 AM

Texas has officially met its expectation on a spring season of hotness!

Which, unfortunately, means no more jacket wearing and exposed skin..

I have all these old scars and i've tried using Mederma Scar stuff before but many of my scars are still pretty apparent. I used Mederma for a few months last summer and I had hoped for better results.

I just bought some of that Bio-Oil for scars but I don't know if it'll be anymore helpful then the other stuff.

Has anyone tried both things and have gotten better results from one product over the other?

Any opinions about this?

I have never tried Mederma, but chose to buy Bio-Oil not long ago after hearing good things about it. I've been using it for less than a month, and so far, I don't see any difference, but my boyfriend thinks they've lightened up a bit.

Thing about Bio-Oil is, you have to be persistent. 2 times a day, every day, and within a couple weeks, up to a couple months, you should start seeing results. I think full results are achieved after 3 or 4 months, but I could be wrong.

I used Mederma for months and go no results whatsoever so I would reccomend trying the bio-oil
