                     What is stretch marks

stretch marks

Stretch marks are narrow streaks or lines that occur on the surface of the skin.
Doctors often refer to stretch marks as stria, striae or  during pregnancy  striae gravidarum.
The tummy (abdomen), buttocks, breasts and thighs are the areas of the body most often affected.
Stretch marks are often red or purple to start with, before gradually fading to a silvery-white colour. They're usually long and thin.

Symptoms of stretch marks 

Not everyone gets stretch marks  it depends on your skin type.
Collagen is a protein in your skin, which keeps it elastic and stretchy. Having a lot of collagen in your skin makes it less likely that you'll get stretch marks.

How stretch marks develop

Before the stretch marks appear, the affected skin will become thin, flattened and pink, and may feel itchy.
The stretch marks themselves then appear as red or purple streaks or lines, but can be pink, reddish-brown or dark brown, depending on your skin colour.
They can occur in patches of parallel lines on your body and often appear "scar-like".
To start with, the lines will be slightly raised and may feel wrinkly, before eventually flattening out.
As the lines become flatter, they will begin to fade and change to a white or silvery colour.
Stretch marks usually fade and become less noticeable over time, but this can sometimes take years.

Where stretch marks occur

Stretch marks can occur anywhere where the skin has been stretched.
They usually  but not always  develop on areas where fat is stored, and can occur on your:
  • tummy (abdomen)
  • buttocks
  • thighs
  • upper arms
  • breasts
  • shoulders (in bodybuilders)
Stretch marks can also sometimes occur on the back, where they overlie the spine horizontally (rather like the rungs on a ladder), particularly teenage boys.              
Stretch Marks
Stretch marks that are caused by Cushing’s syndrome (where a person has high levels of a hormone called cortisol in their blood) tend to be wider and larger, and can also appear on the face.

Causes of stretch marks 

Stretch marks are the result of rapid stretching of the skin due to sudden growth or weight gain.
This stretching causes the middle layer of skin (the dermis) to tear, allowing the deeper skin layers to show through, forming stretch marks.
The dermis contains strong, inter-connected fibres that allow your skin to stretch as your body grows. However, rapid growth can over-stretch and break the fibres.
The tears in the dermis allow the blood vessels below to show through. This is why stretch marks are often red or purple when they first appear.
When the blood vessels eventually contract, the pale-coloured fat underneath your skin will be visible, and your stretch marks will change to a silvery-white colour.

Stretch marks often occur:                                                                                         
  • during pregnancy
  • after rapid weight gain
  • during puberty
  • if you have a family history of stretch marks
  • if you have an underlying health condition or a syndrome
  • after the prolonged or inappropriate use of corticosteroid medication 

Note :  Pregnancy stretch marks

Stretch marks are common during the later stages of pregnancy, affecting about 8 out of 10 pregnant women. Whether or not you'll get stretch marks depends on your skin type and how elastic it is.
During pregnancy, your body produces hormones that soften the ligaments in your pelvis so they're more flexible when you give birth. Ligaments are strong bands of tissue that connect joints. However, the hormones also soften the fibres in your skin, making you prone to stretch marks.
As your baby grows, you may get stretch marks on your tummy, as your skin stretches. You may also develop stretch marks on your thighs and breasts as they get bigger.
After childbirth, stretch marks usually fade and become less noticeable, but they don't always disappear completely.
