  • sadly, they may fade, but once they are there, surgery to remove the skin is the only permanent fix

  • They will fade, but I don't think that there is a way to get rid of them, short of laser surgery.

  • They will fade, but will NEVER go away. A tan helps to hide them (self tanner makes it worse!!).

    I wear my battle scars proudly- after 3 children, I earned them!!

  • Mine has faded away but unless you get surgery they will not go away. I am using Bio-Oil and it has made a huge difference. I also go tanning and its helped.

  • they will fade in time, but there is no way to get rid of them without surgery.
