Stretch Marks

Stretch Marks

Stretch marks, also known as striae, are a common skin condition characterized by visible streaks or lines on the skin’s surface. They typically appear as off-color bands that range from pink to purple initially and eventually fade to a lighter hue. Stretch marks occur when the skin is stretched rapidly due to factors like rapid weight gain, pregnancy, or growth spurts, causing the collagen and elastin fibers in the skin to break down. This results in the formation of scars that can be found on various body parts, such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, breasts, and arms. While stretch marks are harmless and don’t pose any health risks, they can impact one’s self-esteem. Treatment options for stretch marks include options like topical creams, laser therapy, and microneedling, all aimed at improving their appearance and texture.
