Understanding Why Stretch Marks Form
Stretch marks are a very common skin issue that frequently occurs in both men and women. Most people might think that stretch marks are simply caused by weight gain, but that is not entirely accurate.
Stretch marks form when the skin is forced to expand faster than it is physically capable of. While the skin is fairly elastic, if it is forced to stretch too quickly, the dermis will tear and form a vertical scar. These vertical scars are called stretch marks. Rapid weight gain is one of the most common causes of stretch marks, but rapid muscle growth can cause stretch marks to form as well.
