Stretch marks are scars that can occur in the dermis, the skin’s deep layer. Also known as striae, this skin condition commonly appears when a person undergoes weight change, puberty, or pregnancy. It is linked to corticosteroids that the body produces or an individual takes and physical stretching of the skin. It is also related to the alterations in the structure of collagen and elastic tissue in the dermis (1).
Treatment of stretch marks usually involves the use of topical agents, like emollients, cosmeceuticals, silicone gels, tretinoin cream, and chemical peels. These agents, along with physical treatments, have little evidence of efficacy (2,3).
