Stretch marks can be such a nuisance. Both women and men can get these thin striations in the skin that are usually purple or red and then fade to white over time. Stretch marks have numerous causes such as weight gain, pregnancy and growth spurts. They are actually a tear in the middle layer of skin, or dermis, that occurs when the skin expands more rapidly than collagen and elastin can be produced. Fortunately, the appearance of these lines can be significantly reduced through the proper stretch mark removal treatments.
