Stretch Marks

Ranging from fine lines to thick waves, stretch marks are often caused by extreme weight fluctuation, rapid muscle building and pregnancy.
When the skin is stretched too quickly, some of its collagen fibers can break, causing underlying blood vessels to show through, leaving behind red or purplish marks resembling spider webs or tree branches.
Over time, they fade to pale white or silvery colour, but they do not usually go away fully.
