What is Stretch Marks and how its treated

Stretch marks, medically known as “striae distensae,” seem to be having a moment lately. Stretch marks are long, narrow streaks, stripes, or lines that develop on the skin. They occur when the skin is suddenly stretched and are extremely common. Puberty is one of the most common times for the body to get stretch marks, and that’s because stretch marks occur when the skin of the body is pulled for rapid growth.In fact, it’s a common myth that stretch marks are a sign that you need to lose weight — it’s absolutely untrue! Stretch marks frequently appear on men and women who are bodybuilders because of their rapid growth of muscles, which as you can imagine, causes the skin to majorly stretch. Men most commonly get stretch marks on their upper thighs, their upper arms, their buttocks, and their backs. This type of scarring happens when the skin cannot resume normal form after a period of intense growth, often due to pregnancy, weight gain, weight loss, or puberty. Over 50 percent of women experience stretch marks during pregnancy.
