Stretch marks are very commonly found on various parts of the body such as the butt, hips, breasts, and lower thighs. They are the result of rapid skin expansion. While there are ways to have these marks removed permanently and professionally, it costs an enormous amount of money.
The skin is composed of several layers. Stretch marks appear like thin, red, parallel lines in the dermis, the middle or second layer of skin; a result of tearing the dermal fibers. There is also loss of elastic fiber and collagen from the dermal layer. They occur when the skin is stretched quickly, as with rapid weight gain. The stretched skin becomes thin and silvery. The marks can resemble scars. Stretch marks have no symptoms other than the appearance of the marks themselves.
The best time to treat stretch marks is early and often, before they have time to fade into a more permanent state, according to Dr. Eric Berstein, Clinical Associate Professor at the University of Pennsylvania. Stretch marks usually start out as red lines, but may start out pink, reddish-brown, brown, or dark brown, depending on skin tone when they appear. Over time the marks will slowly fade to a silvery color, and be less noticeable.
