What are Stretch Marks?
A stretch mark is a type of scar that develops when our skin stretches or shrinks quickly. These indented streaks most commonly occur on the stomach, breasts, hips, and buttocks.
When stretch marks first appear, they might be slightly elevated and feel itchy. Early stretch marks tend to be red, purple, pink, or dark brown. As they mature, they may become deep stretch marks and appear sunken or pitted and white. They can vary in size from fine lines of 0.2 to 1cm to thicker, longer lines of 5 to 20cm in length. Although stretch marks are not painful or harmful, you may not like how they make your body look, it may even strip you of your confidence.
What causes Stretch Marks?
This skin condition is a type of scar occurring in the dermis, the middle layer of skin between the epidermis and hypodermis. The rapid stretching or shrinking of the skin might cause the collagen and elastin to tear. The healing of this tear leads to the appearance of stretch marks. Because they come from quick changes to the dermis, you are most likely to develop them from rapid weight loss or gain, growth spurts during puberty, or fast muscle growth during weight training.
