How to Get Rid of Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are one of the most frustrating skin care concerns, especially as so many people deal with them at some point in life! It's estimated that 90% of women who are or have been pregnant, 70% of teenage girls, and 40% of teenage boys have stretch marks. Stretch marks are actually scars of the skin caused by the tearing of the dermis which takes place during excessive fluctuations in the hormones. In simple terms, elastic fibers in the skin are damaged due to the drastic change in hormones, which occur during pregnancy, weight gain/loss, or use of steroids. Hence, the main cause of stretch marks is not simply the rapid expansion of skin, rather the changes in hormones which lead to the rapid changes in our skin causing stretch marks.

During pregnancy, puberty, and weight fluctuations elevated levels of hormones called glucocorticoids are produced by the adrenal glands. These hormones are what can cause the collagen and elastin fibers to tear when the skin is stretched. Stretch marks aren't caused by weight gain itself. Weight gain promotes the hormonal changes that cause stretch marks.

Stretch marks can be classified as rubra (striae rubra) or alba (striae alba).

 

Stretch marks first appear as rubra: pink, red, or purplish and inflamed. Over time, stretch marks turn silvery white, becoming alba.
