How Do Stretch Marks Form?
Published on February 8, 2018 by Susan Ricca
Are you embarrassed by the appearance of your body because of your noticeable stretch marks? Stretch marks can be difficult to avoid because of how easy it is for them to form.
The primary reason why stretch marks form is due to rapid weight gain. When people gain weight in areas like their stomach and upper arms, the skin can usually compensate for this by slowly stretching. When rapid weight gain occurs, the skin is stretched too quickly, which can cause the dermis to tear, resulting in noticeable stretch marks.
