Stretch marks(or stria) are usually caused by rapid weight gain in a short period of time, pregnancy or muscle enlargement. Stretch marks are tiny tears in the dermis (the elastic, resilient middle layer) that form when the skin stretches. Stretch marks can form anywhere on the body where the skin is stretched but they most commonly form on the breasts(for women), hips, abdomine, inner thighs, buttox, behind the knees and on the arms. Stretch marks start out as a reddish/purpleish colour but with time they heal and fade to whiteish coloured scars. Stretch marks mostly occur in women during pregnancy or girls going through puberty and growth spurts.
Millions of men and women across the world have stretch marks and are interested in stretch mark treatment. It is usually because of puberty, pregnancy, hormonal changes and weight gain. Stretch marks are narrow streaks or lines that occur on the surface of the skin. Both males and females can suffer from this condition. Stretch marks are the result of the skin suddenly stretching. The middle layer of skin (dermis) breaks in places, allowing the deeper layers to show through.
