Stretch marks are a kind of scar caused by rapid changes in the skin. Stretch marks are very common, especially among women as they age, and are often found on the hips, thighs, stomach, breasts and under the arms. Stretch marks are unsightly and give the skin a discolored, uneven appearance.
Stretch marks can be smoothed away by stretch mark creams. Their powerful ingredients stimulate the deeper layers of the skin to produce collagen and elastins, the tissues that help skin look younger and healthy. Over time, stretch marks can be completely healed and return your skin to its previous healthy condition.
