  • Over time they usually fade and become closer to your normal skin color. I didn't get any, but my friend did and they used to be VERY noticeable, but they look MUCH better now . . a lot less noticeable.

  • they fade to your skin tone after awhile, There are all sorts of "miracle creams" that supposedly get rid of them, the only thing i ever found that helped was the palmers vitamin E it didnt get rid of them but did help to soften the skin and it is wonderful for reducing scarring.

  • I didn't get any until I got pregnant with the twins, grr. They have faded and tanning seems to help them disappear a little more.

  • Mine have faded a little. My son calls them "tiger stripes" and I'm glad to be a fierce strong mama for him.

  • Well stretch marks are scars, so they will never completely go away, but they can fade to where you can barely see them.
