About Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are a skin condition called stria distensa (striae), which is caused by destruction of collagen fibers in the dermis resulting from a sudden and excessive force on the skin that has had a prolonged impact or an increase in the adrenocortical hormones. As a result, the skin loses its elasticity and there is lack of cellular activity and regeneration. If the condition is neglected for a long time, the skin will eventually lose its elasticity in addition to the appearance of stretch marks.

Causes and Symptoms of Stretch Marks

Considerable changes in the body weight

Pregnancy Unbalanced pelvis
Abdominal obesity Constipation

Prolonged intake of steroids

 

Excess hormones can cause degeneration of collagen in the dermis, and causes flesh to extrude out of the skin. When the skin expands suddenly, collagen and elastin forming the connective tissue in the skin get torn, and horizontal or vertical lines will form on the skin.

 

The early symptoms include an appearance of scarlet or red lines. When you take a closer look, the lines are depressed and feel bumpy to the touch. Over time, the color of the stretch marks will become lighter and change to a white color. It is most effective to treat stretch marks when they are still in scarlet or red color.
