This is how stretch marks develop

  • Stretch marks are small scars that appear when the lower layers of the skin thin and lose their elasticity. They also arise when the subcutaneous fatty tissue loosens. Sometimes a predisposition to weak connective tissue is also the reason for the unsightly stretch marks.
  • They mostly arise during pregnancy when your tissue, especially on the abdomen and breasts, has to expand very quickly.
  • But even if you have experienced rapid weight gain, stretch marks may appear on the stomach, chest, upper arms, buttocks, or thighs.
  • If you gain muscle mass very quickly through extreme strength training, stretch marks can also appear on your skin.
  • When your stretch marks are fresh, they are usually red and several inches long and sometimes itchy.
