Stretch Marks

About

Stretch Marks

Stretch marks typically appear as bands of parallel lines on your skin. They usually look like purple or red scratches or lines to start with, and fade to a silvery whitish colour. You may feel a slight ridge or indentation when you touch them, and they can sometimes feel itchy or sore.

You can have stretch marks anywhere on the body, but they're most common on your stomach, breasts, upper arms, thighs and buttocks.

What Causes

Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are a result of the skin stretching, causing the middle layer of the skin (the dermis) to tear. This can be due to rapid weight gain or a growth spurt. Many women also experience stretch marks during or after pregnancy.

Prevention of

Stretch Marks

Unfortunately, there’s no way to prevent stretch marks completely as the rapid growth that occurs during pregnancy or puberty is a common cause. However, keeping your weight in a healthy range and avoiding rapid weight gain or loss will minimise your chances of getting stretch marks.
