Youcan't make them go away. My friend is using bio oil and hers have faded a lot, but they also significantly fade with time and she has a one year old so she's not sure if the bio oil actually has anything to do with it. Just give it some time.

I used the Palmers Cocoa Butter and imo.. It didnt help at all. I pretty much gave up and they have faded over the past couple years. To the point that I really cant see them anymore. I use lots and lots of lotion if that helps? Lol. But now that Im thinking about it, Ive saw several things on Pinterest about it so try looking there. maybe you will be able to find something that works!

Time:-) Mine were pretty dark but now they are skin color. They are scars so you could try Mederma or Bio oil.

Time will help them fade. Nothing but plastic surgery will make them "disappear".

Mine are still present but much less noticeable. I used Bio Oil every day when I got out of the shower and my skin was still kind of wet. I also used vitamin E oil and took hair/skin vitamins.

 I'm surprised. I used Palmer's and it worked wonders! I don't have any stretch marks! How often were you using it?

It says on the container that the ingredients in it will help your skin with elasticity, but that you had to use it for up to 3 times a day to get the desired results lol(:
