Getting Rid of Your Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are more like scars that appear to be either red, reddish-brown, purple, pink, or dark brown depending on what color your skin is you might think to yourself “do stretch marks go away” and the answer is that they would not completely disappear. The color of stretch marks would fade over time but the marks would stay and sink below the skin in a depressed manner.

What Are The Causes Of Stretch Marks

When the skin suddenly stretches or shrinks, the elastin and collagen in the skin is affected and the skin becomes damaged because the skin cannot keep up with the sudden changes. Stretch marks form when the skin heals from these sudden changes. Your skin’s ability to stretch is mostly determined by elastin and collagen’s fundamental function is to provide your skin structure, strength, and support. When the skin is damaged by different types of causes, then stretch marks will form. Some of the causes of stretch marks are:

● Pregnancy – 90% of women who go through pregnancy have to experience this due to
sudden weight gain and the skin stretching a lot. Stretch marks in pregnancy are mostly
seen in the stomach, sometimes upper thighs, and also breasts.
● Going through puberty
● Sudden weight gain or sudden weight loss
● Bodybuilding
● Excessive use of steroid
● Medical conditions such as Marfan Syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), and in rare
cases due to Cushing’s Syndrome.
