What Causes Stretch Marks?
Stretch marks are scars that form when your skin stretches too quickly or is pulled by rapid growth or weight gain. They’re most common in pregnant women and adolescents who are growing rapidly. Men and women who’ve gained and lost a lot of weight may also be more likely to get stretch marks.
Stretch marks usually form on the abdomen, breasts, hips, buttocks and thighs. They initially appear as reddish or purple lines, but tend to gradually fade to a lighter color over time. They don’t pose any health risks, but some people find them unattractive and seek treatment for cosmetic reasons.
Stretch marks are a common occurrence in men and women. They may occur due to a sudden change in weight, such as pregnancy. They can also result from an increase in muscle mass or due to corticosteroid use. Stretch marks often appear on the abdomen, breasts, buttocks, hips, and thighs. In some cases they may appear on the arms or back.
Stretch marks are more common in women than men. They affect up to 70% of women at some point in their lives.
Stretch marks may be caused by a variety of factors, including:
– Pregnancy (due to hormonal changes)
– Corticosteroids (medications used to treat certain conditions)
– Rapid growth (during puberty or pregnancy)
– Genetic predisposition
The treatment options for stretch marks include:
– Laser therapy: This is a new treatment option that uses light energy to stimulate collagen production and help fade stretch marks. It is usually done 1-3 times per week for 6 weeks followed by monthly maintenance sessions.
– Microdermabrasion: This is an older treatment option that involves removing the top layer of skin with little sandblasters that spray tiny crystals onto the skin’s surface. It can be painful but results are seen quickly
I just wanted to share my thoughts on how I am currently dealing with my stretch marks.
It started with an article in the New York Times about a new stretch mark treatment by a company called Dermis. The treatment is a combination of two things: a laser and a special cream that is made from the stem cells of a human fetus. The idea is that you apply this cream to your stretch marks daily and then use the laser once a week for 6 months.
I was very skeptical about this, so I went online and found an online forum that talked about this new treatment. There were some people who said it worked great for them, but there were also others who said it didn’t do anything at all. It seemed like a coin toss whether or not I would see any improvement in my stretch marks.
One thing that stood out to me was the fact that the people who said they had good results were using this cream with other treatments like microdermabrasion and chemical peels. So I decided to try those first and see if they made any difference before trying out Dermis’s cream on its own.
I got microdermabrasion done once a week for 4 weeks and had no noticeable results. Then I tried using

Dermis is the second layer of skin, it contains sweat glands, hair follicles and nerve endings.
The dermis is below the epidermis and contains blood vessels, lymph vessels, hair follicles, sweat glands, sebaceous glands and receptors. The dermis is made up of two layers: papillary dermis and reticular dermis.
The papillary dermis is the upper layer of the dermis. It contains loose connective tissue that is made up of elastin fibers, collagen fibers and fibroblasts. The papillary dermis also contains blood vessels that supply nutrients to the skin.
The reticular dermis contains a network of collagen fibers (that make up 80% of this layer) and elastic fibers that are arranged in a basket weave pattern. This network gives strength to your skin and allows for expansion during pregnancy or weight gain.
The junction between the epidermis and the dermis is called the basement membrane zone or BMZ (also called basement membrane or basal lamina).
Stretch marks, also known as striae distensae, are a form of scarring on the skin with an off-color hue. It is caused by tearing of dermis. Stretch marks may appear during rapid growth of the body, such as during puberty or pregnancy. Stretch marks may also be influenced by hormonal changes associated with puberty, pregnancy, bodybuilding and hormone replacement therapy.
