Definition: what is a stretch mark?

“Stretch marks are persistent skin lesions which are similar to scars and which mainly occur at puberty and during pregnancy when one has at the same time distension of a part of the body, that is to say, say an increase in volume (but not always), and often the promoting role of certain hormones. If we analyze the skin, the number of elastic fibers is greatly reduced. Exceptionally, they can occur spontaneously. 40% of men are concerned against 70% of women “.

The appearance of stretch marks

Stretch marks have the appearance of linear depressions which are oriented most of the time in the direction of the tension of the skin. There are two phases of evolution:

. an inflammatory phase which gives them a purplish red appearance due to the dilation of the vessels
. a cicatricial phase where they are white and atrophic.

“Stretch marks are usually located in areas that gain volume: under the breasts, on the thighs and hips in adolescence, and on the breasts and abdomen in pregnancy. In men, they are seen in the lower part of the back, at the root of the arms in those who do bodybuilding and the inner side of the knees, ”emphasizes the dermatologist.
