Stretch Marks

Stretch Marks have the appearance of narrow lines on the surface of the skin. They often start as purple or red lines before fading to a shiny, silvery colour. They are caused by the skin stretching, where the dermis (middle layer of skin) tears, hence allowing the deeper skin layers to show through. Stretch marks are often a result of rapid weight gain, during puberty throughout pregnancy and as a result of family history. There are also medical conditions such as Cushing's syndrome and Marfan syndrome which cause stretch marks

Commonly affecting areas such as the stomach, breasts, buttocks, thighs, upper arms and shoulders, stretch marks are harmless but can affect self-confidence and body image.
