Stretch mark removal What are stretch marks?
Stretch mark removal - Stretch marks are scars on the skin that appear due to weight gain or change in the size of the body. Both weight gain and hormonal changes in the body could cause stretch marks. The most common cause of stretch marks in women is pregnancy. Obesity is again a major reason why both men and women might get these scars on their body.
Stretch marks are extremely stubborn and it takes a lot of effort to remove them. In fact it is very difficult to completely eradicate the marks. That is why you should take a lot of care of your skin and body to avoid the appearance of stretch marks. They start to emerge on the areas that have gained maximum weight or changed in size. The abdominal area, hips and thighs are stretch mark prone regions. However, these scars could appear on any part of your body that had gained weight.
Primarily these marks appear to be reddish or purplish in color. Initially they are thin parallel lines that could be seen on the lower abdomen, thigh, waist, hips, lower back, buttocks, upper arms or breasts. Gradually these marks start to deepen in appearance and lighten in color. Finally they look like deep silver lines on the body that are quite stubborn to get rid of.
