Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are caused when the skin rapidly stretches as a result of sudden growth (pregnancy), at puberty, or with weight gain. The stretching causes the body’s middle layer of skin (dermis) to tear, allowing the deeper skin layers to show through, forming stretch marks. The location of stretch marks varies depending on a person’s body type but typically occur on the tummy, breasts, upper arms, bottom, thighs & shoulders.

Having stretch marks can cause insecurity but there are treatments that can help reduce the appearance of them.
