I tried some. Same type of scars as you described. Used for about 4 weeks, did nothing for me. Some people swear by it. I have heard camillia oil works, never tried, guess you can buy on-line.

I've used bio oil in the past and whilst it possibly helped with making my skin tone slightly more even and helping to fade red marks, I can't say there was any noticeable difference to my scars. Maybe you'd have better luck, but I think the general consensus on bio oil is that it's not much good for scarring. Something like glycolic acid or retin-a may provide you with better results.
