  • Time. A year from now, they'll look much better. Two years, and they'll probably be completely faded.

  • I've had a little luck with fading the redness of new stretch marks with 100% natural Shea butter. Other than that, once you have them, you are stuck with them I think. I heard a little about laser treatment or retinin A. Some people say sun bathing helps. The ones I have from previous pregnancies are faded to silvery lines.
