  • Ive used Bio Oil and mine got really light, but it took about 4 months. I know it was the bio oil cause I didnt use it on my stomach and those are still there.

  • I've heard that Bio Oil works really well. I used the cocoa butter for after a baby. I think it has a couple of different ingredients than the regular cocoa butter to speed the lightening process, but I could be remembering wrong. Mine lightened after about 5 months when I started using that. My baby will be 2 Friday and now they're almost all skin colored (I'm really pale lol). The big ones down my hips are still slightly pink in a spot or two, but I didn't use the cream on those. Getting lucky with a cream or oil, time and a tummy tuck are the only things I can think of.

  • I assumed there were products available for this, but after reading these answers....hmmm, not so much. Seems like there "should be" something fail safe by now.
