Pregnancy, rapid growth, and weight gain or loss cause the skin to stretch almost to the worset. The elastic layer of skin called the dermis is affected and stretch marks form. They often start out as red or purple streaks and they slowly become white or silvery. Unfortunately the skin does not bounce back from this condition. Stretch marks most commonly develop in the abdominal area, thighs, hips, breasts, upper arms or back.
Laser treatment for stretch marks are chosen based on the stage of development of the lesion: young ones are red and purple treatment is decided based on kind of strech marks.
