Will mederma or bio oil help with old stretchmarks? There is a site regarding stretch marks and that says massaging will fade new and old stretch marks- is that true?
Mederma or Bio Oil for Old Stretchmarks?

Stretch mark improvement with Mederma
Stretch marks are not thickened scars, rather, they are tears in the dermal layer of the skin. Using mederma or bio-oil on thickened scars works by increasing cellular collagen remodeling in the dermis. In stretch marks, there is no theoretical benefit of mederma or similar scar formulas.
I use a strict topical cream and laser protocol for stretch marks that works great on pigmented and thickened stretch marks on all skin complexions.

Lots of stretch mark product scams
In the contact section you might ask for one scientific study from a respected referreed journal showing any sort of oil or topical cream fades old stretch marks.
This sounds like the usual scam maybe fancily dressed up. T
here are some lasers which might fade them, and Fraxel is enjoying some support, but nothing topical. Sorry. Its just not that easy
