    i hear vitamin E helps a lot but i think in the long run its hereditary. i got a few with my first pregnancy and they faded a tiny little bit, i even used cocoa butter before, during and after :/

    My baby is 8 months old and mine are now almost completely invisible. I think they will stay how they are now. I don't think they will go away 100%.

    like audry said, they fade but never go away 100% with a tan in the summer they are unnoticeable but.... you will know they are there, think of them as battle scare. vitamine e helps. i bet a dermatologist could help if it really bugs you they are able to burn most anything off of you.

    time and cosmetic lotions you could also buy an at home chemical peel and do it on your affected areas

    They do fade considerably over time. Within 5 years, mine weren't visible anymore.

    I think everyone's skin is different. My youngest child is 15 and I STILL have ALL the stretchmarks I got from each of my 3 children...LOL...not one of them faded away.

    I haven't really put effort into getting rid of them though.

    lazer removal! works AMAZINGLY! it's just the same as what they do to remove tattoos. also chemical peels will work too. some gyno's do the lazer thing in their offices, you just have to look around. i have seen the results and they work WONDERS! i'm getting it don't after i have my second baby in september and i can not wait, it's totally worth it
