What are Stretch Marks?

A stretch mark is a scar that occurs when the skin stretches or shrinks too quickly. The rapid change causes the collagen and elastin, which support our skin, to rupture. As the skin heals, stretch marks may appear. There are many circumstances where a stretch mark may appear, generally noticed throughout puberty, pregnancy, rapid weight loss or gain, or during weight training with rapid muscle growth.
