Hi In love, save your money! it doesn't do anything, for the price of two bottles you can get something that really works. - myself for scars ( i'm accident prone so I have several!) I use La roche Posay Mela -D, it has kojic acid to fade the scar and glycolic acid to peel the bad cells. For me it's working pretty good on all the uneven scars on my knees, and feet, arms.

And don't even think of using bio oil if you have active acne.

Hi Mony,

Have you used La roche posay mela- D for freckles or age spots? Is it effective?

Thanks.

I don't know I guess it would be because of those two acids- I threw away the boxe, I just remember it stating it could diminish scars. BUt I bept it would work.

BIO oil. I've tried using this because i have a big scar in my legs yet nothing happened. I was applying it for a month or so but it really never worked for me.

ditto ive never noticed any difference on scars. i think other oils are better such as emu or rose.

Perhaps it would be more accurate to mention what type of scars?
Mine is depressed scars and nothing works except dermabrasion improves slightly. But it makes my skin more sensitive so i stopped it.
If keloid scars, then can try intra-lesional steroid injection.
Laser is quite popular these years but i have no gut to try yet..

the lightening skin care set from herbal mineral works for me. I can see lightening on my scars for about 2 weeks of daily use. the skin care set contains kojic acid.

I'm having great success to treat my depressed scars. I'm using Tazorac, EpidermxII microdermabrasion cream and Silkia camelia oil. It's been exactly a year since I started using them through the recommendation of a friend who has had great results herself. My scars are no way as deep as before and a few of the tiny ones are filled in.

I still have an almost full bottle I bought a year ago. It didn't do anything for me.
