About stretch marks

Book your Stretch Marks removal procedure with the Cosmetic Medical Clinic Sydney. Stretch Marks are caused by a rapid gain in weight or girth which causes the collagen and elastin fibres in the dermis (middle layer of skin) to stretch and tear. The body responds by forming scar tissue, known as Stretch Marks or Striae, which appear through the epidermis (top layer of skin) in the form of purplish or reddish streaks, these marks usually turn lighter over time.

Who can get stretch marks?

Anyone can get them, although there is a strong hereditary influence and women are two-and-a-half-times more likely to develop them than men. They are common during pregnancy and can also appear at times of rapid growth, such as during puberty and adolescence. They can also be caused by rapid weight gain or loss, weight lifting, or even medications.
