What are stretch marks?

Stretch marks are bands of parallel lines or narrow streaks or even the stripes you see on your skin. Stretch marks are usually found over the area of your tummy, but the can also appear on your other parts of your body like above your thighs, hips, arms, buttock area, knees, calves and over your lower back.

Not only that, but they are also usually formed during pregnancy and is called striae gravidarum, especially during your third trimester. This is because of the rapid stretching of the skin and the sudden weight gain. Usually, these stretch marks during pregnancy appear over your abdomen, then on your breasts, thighs and inguinal area.

These stretch marks are difficult to treat and they leave an unsightly appearance that may cause emotional as well as psychological distress. It has a lot to do with confidence and self-image. Stretch marks occurs differently in different people. They come in all colours and shape. Some may have white marks, some may have purple lines.

Hows do stretch marks form?

As to how they are formed, it is caused by the extreme and rapid stretching of the skin on the epidermis layer, the upper layer of your skin that causes the dermis layer, the lower layer of the skin, to tear as they cannot grow as fast.

Additionally, as the skin continually expands and proceeds to tear, the normal collagen production is disturbed by the increased elasticity of the skin. Also, there are studies that show hormonal changes associated with puberty, pregnancy, hormones consumed while bodybuilding or hormone replacement therapy also contributes to the increase in fragility of the skin.

In addition to that, it also has been shown that stretch marks are formed by the stretching of the skin plus the increase of cortisone levels in the body. When the stretching occurs, the skin fibres break and tiny tears then develop, allowing the underlying blood vessels and broken capillaries to be seen on the surface of the skin.
