    Hi Louise,

    ?I didn't use bio oil, just Aloe Vera Gel ......... I started using it as soon as my dressing was removed and the incision was declared infection free - 2 weeks post op. Incidently, I didn't need to worry about staples coming out - mine were the self dissolving type.

    Hi Louise, I was told not to use it until incision was completely closed over...was about 4 weeks. This was so as no oil got into incision. It was brilliant my scar is very faint now.
