What exactly is a stretch mark?
Stretch marks also called as striae occur when the skin changes its shape due to rapid stretching beyond its natural limits.
It can occur due to rapid weight gain or sudden weight loss , during pregnancy ,also at puberty in adolescents.
Also occurs due to strenuous exercises that leads to excess stretching of the skin .
Stretch marks can occur
Stretch marks can occur in various colors.In the initial stages it appears in slightly red-pink in color and over time can turn brown to black depending on skin type and end up in white color streaks as most of us observe.
They can occur anywhere on the body. Most commonly observed areas are on the abdomen , chest, upper arms , on legs , buttocks and thighs
There are many creams and lotions and home-made remedies claiming to be effective for the treatment but the results on these are debatable.
As the cause of stretch marks is due to loss of elasticity in the dermal layer, treatments that promote elasticity in the skin would only help in getting rid of the stretch marks.
Some of these treatments include regular chemical peeling , or Micro needling RF, fractional CO2 lasers, derma roller etc.
