Stretch marks can happen to anyone. They primarily are a result of sudden changes in the skin, typically when the skin expands or shrinks in a short amount of time. The collagen and elastin that make up the skin basically rupture during the stretching process and leaves scars behind. While anyone can develop stretch marks, they seem to be more prevalent in periods where hormonal activity has increased. They are also more prevalent in those whose families have a history of stretch marks.
Certain developments in the body may also lead to stretch marks like pregnancy or a sudden growth spurt. For those who suddenly lose or gain significant weight, you may also notice bands form on your skin. Finally, even those who undergo weight training may see stretch marks if there is rapid muscle growth that requires the skin to quickly cover the stretching area.
