Im going to have to try some of these things. I have def done the cocoa butter all through pregnancy and still do for the stretch marks. I dont think the line is that bad but something I am not used to having... weird! But thanks everyone!!

Try washing with a wash cloth, not a loofa. scrub on it. Mine came off that way. I don't remember when though.

think it depends on the person n how big n dark of a line u get! Mine was quit dark, i have 2 boys n it took about 6-7months with each of them for it to go, but it did go completly!! n i dont use alot of lotions.

try mederma or coco/shea butter -- they are all known to remove appearance of scars & dark spots. mine went away about 2 weeks after delivery & but i was putting a lot of creams with vitamin e and shea butter while i was pregnant, so i was lucky not to have it too aparent or too many stretch marks postpartum.

Unfortunately, it doesn't. You can, however, use a toner or a fading cream. My youngest son is now 16 and I still have it. I've been using a toner to even the skin tone on my abdomen. Works for me, might work for you.
