Stretch marks are a common problem for both men and women. Stretch marks are bands of parallel lines which are long, thinned and rippled caused due to stretching of the skin’s connective tissue. Stretch marks occur when the skin is pulled by rapid growth or stretching beyond normal limits. Such stretching can result due to many factors like growth spurts, body changes, rapid weight loss or gain (as might normally happen during adolescence), corticosteroids, breast implant surgery, genetics, chronic diseases, fluctuating hormone level, extreme muscle building, higher levels of steroid hormones in the body, due to frequent weight fluctuations, pregnancy (up to 80% of the women get stretch marks during pregnancy). Stretch marks are stubborn and are not painful but they tend to have an effect on ones confidence and self esteem.
Stretch marks can affect people of nearly all ages and all skin types. It is associated with body’s shape and appearance and can affect many areas of the body like thighs, waist, hips, breasts, lower back, legs, arms, stomach, shoulders and buttocks.
