What is a stretch mark?

stretch mark or striae is a type of linear, curved or horizontal scar that develops when our skin expands or shrinks quickly. The abrupt change causes the rupture of collagen and elastin fibres in our skin. These fibres support and maintain the firmness and elasticity of our skin. When these are broken down, they result in stretch marks.

If the person gains height, the stretch marks that appear are horizontal. If the person gains weight, the stretch marks appear are vertical i.e. perpendicular to the direction of stretching.
