Nothing makes them go away - they will fade on their own over time and I guess some people say Bio Oil will help to fade them but I haven't tried it. I didn't get them too bad - even after my twins - but I did get some on my hips. I don't really worry about them - who's going to see them anyway? Hubby doesn't care - he got more than I did during my pregnancy because he was eating right along with me LOL!

I have been using Shea Butter mixed with Tamanu oil...and it is working wonders. Look up tamanu oil ( http://www.naturalskinrepair.com/tamanu-...) and you will see that it is a cure all for all types of skin issues (ie. cold sores, acne, burns, bites, sore throats, even leopracy). The oil is a bit pricey but it so worth it! You can get it at any health foods store (ie. Whole Foods) or online. I whip the oil into some shea butter and my skin is so soft..I even use it on my face to help with dry skin and wrinkles!

I am covered in them from my two pregnancies. I applied bio oil every single day of both pregnancies and for a small time after. They were very red and noticable but after a couple of months they have faded into silvery lines. I can still notice them and I don't like it but I see them as my war wounds and am trying to change my minset about them. My two precious boys are more than worth it. So yeah they do fade with time but mine haven't completely disappeared.
