I've had a linea nigra for several years. I'm going to assume due to birth control pills because I've never been pregnant. I'm a 30 yr old lightly tanned hispanic & the line on my belly is faint but still noticeable enough for me to have to cover it with make-up. So far I've tried creams such as Tri Luma, Strivectin & Clinique Spot treatment, they helped to a small degree but I want to get rid of it once & for all. Also, if it's removed with a laser, would the line come back if I star BCP again?
