I had one very severe scar on my leg from a fall which i then picked at. I used bio oil and the scar has faded, not completley gone. If you have larger more prominent scars i would suggest this but it doesn't really work on older already faded scars. Please tell me if this drug works for you as i have a lot of scars myself, i mainly use foundation and make-up to cover them up. I even specifically bought tan/brown towells so i could wear a lot of make-up to go swimming in and dry myself.

I have lots of white scars on my legs and arms from years of picking. I didn't realize that there are medications to help conceal them. I would also love to hear any information about this.
