Why Stretch Marks Appears?

Stretch marks often appear on periods of fast gain or loss of weight, like puberty, pregnancy, and others. But, can we prevent them?

Stretch marks appear due to a disruption in skin elasticity following mechanical stress. These fibers on the skin work like a rubber band, stretching and going back to their original size. If these fibers overstretch the collagen fibers break giving origin to inflammation followed by a scarring process.


The most common areas affected include:

  • abdomen
  • breasts
  • hips
  • flank
  • buttocks
  • thighs


After some time, these bands tend to whiten and become hypopigmented, turning into scar tissue, so we need to keep in mind that at this stage it's more difficult to get a treatment that will work and vanish these scars. We would like to advise you to use treatments to prevent the appearance of stretch marks and give your skin the elasticity and moisture it needs. If you have dry skin you need to know a bit more about it to prevent this situations too.
