The common answer is simply due to the rapid stretching of the skin.
In deeper length, stretchmarks are scars that are left behind due to the tearing of collagen and elastin because of rapid stretching. With this in mind it is easier to understand when the stetchmarks appear:
- During pregnancy and post-paturm
- After rapid weight-gain or weight loss
- As a result of muscle building
- Using corticosteroid creams, lotions or pills decrease the skin’s ability to stretch
Stretchmarks appear and stay on the skin manifesting in stages.
Stage 1: Streaks on the normal skin color
These are newly formed stretchmarks and are the easiest to get rid of. If treated constantly, these can disappear completely
Stage 2: Paler or darker than the usual skin color
These are more advanced and are usually one month to less than an yr old. They can be minimized and will diminish with time
Stage 3: White in color
These are the oldest of stretchmarks and are quite hard to eliminate. For this kind we recommend seeing a dermatologist to recommend a suitable procedure to eliminate the stretchmarks
Before purchase, it is important to analyze and measure at what stage the stretchmarks on your skin are at. This will give realistic expectations for the results
