Stretch Marks are characterized by a rupture of the elastic fibers that give support and elasticity to the skin (collagen and elastin), resulting in small scars. Located in the middle layer of the skin, they are mainly due to the distention of the skin, caused by oscillations of weight, or even hormonal changes, such as accelerated growth.
They affect men and women, in adulthood, or during adolescence, women during pregnancy and even children. The area’s most prone to stretch marks are the hips, buttocks, thighs, breasts and abdomen.
In addition to the stretch marks, also the usual scars, formed in the natural process of healing skin wounds, affect the appearance and self-esteem of several people.
