Health Conditions: Stretch Marks
Stretch marks result from rapid stretching of the skin associated with rapid growth or rapid weight changes. The stretching causes tearing of the dermis that leads to the formation of blue-red, off colored scars on the skin. Stretch marks diminish overtime, but they do not disappear completely. Stretch marks may also be influenced by hormonal changes associated with puberty, pregnancy, bodybuilding, hormone replacement therapy, etc.
Stretch marks usually appear on: Abdomen Back Waist Arms Hips Breast Lower back Legs
