What are stretch marks?

Stretch marks (aka striae distensa) (aka striae distensa) are the streaky lines that develop on the skin, especially on the abdomen and legs. They are caused by the rapid expansion of skin usually during pregnancy or during weight fluctuation. This sudden stretching of the skin actually results in the tearing of the dermis (below the surface of the skin). These marks are notoriously difficult to treat, but thanks to laser technology, stretch marks can be repaired without causing further damage to the skin.

What are the causes?

Stretch marks are more likely to develop during pregnancy, sudden weight gain or loss, growth spurts during puberty, or weight training that results in rapid muscle growth. If members of your family easily get stretch marks, you may be at a higher risk. Fluctuating hormone levels can also play a role.
