Stretch marks, or striae, are a form of skin scarring that typically appears as bands of parallel lines on your skin. Their texture and color is different than your normal skin. Newer stretch marks tend to be red or purple in color while more mature stretch marks being a silvery white color. They most commonly occur during puberty, pregnancy, significant weight fluctuations, or anything that rapidly overextends the connective tissues under your skin.
Stretch marks form when the dermis – the middle layer of the skin that maintains shape and elasticity – is stretched more than it can tolerate. Connective fibers in the skin eventually break, disrupting collagen production and causing scarring.
