Skin scars are the visible results of the skin’s healing process after some type of injury. Usually developing after a full thickness of the skin’s break-down, either planned, such as surgery, or accidental or even severe acne or other inflammatory insults. The resulting scars may be barely visible, as in after an expert wound closure, or disfiguring, as in after an extensive, severe burn or the wound is left to close on its own. While the exact cause of stretch marks are unknown, it is thought that striae are the result of your
skin’s collagen and elastin breaking down under stress. Pregnancy, bodybuilding and weight loss are the leading causes of stretch marks. Stretch marks occur most frequently in areas of mechanical stress such as the breasts, abdomen, thighs, groin or buttocks. In the beginning, stretch marks are red, purple even blue. They turn pearl-white as part of the healing process.
They are a common problem, affecting more women than men. Many moms are afflicted with stretch marks after pregnancy. They show up on the skin after weight gain or loss; men and women athletes and active people can be prone to stretch marks. Scars and stretch marks have one thing in common: we want to diminish of them.
