Stretch marks are very common and a big aesthetic dilemma. Anyone can get stretch marks, but they occur more often in women than in men. In fact, 70% of all women and 40% of men will suffer stretch some time in their life. More worryingly, 90% of all pregnant women get stretch marks.
There are several factors which predispose one from having stretch marks. Pregnancy is a big factor in stretch mark development, particularly after the sixth month of pregnancy.
Hormones that are produced by the body to help soften ligaments become ready for birth also soften fibers in the skin increasing the risk of developing stretch marks. Hence, stretch marks are more likely to occur if a lot of weight is gained during a short period of time. Regular dieting and subsequent rapid weight gain is the main cause of stretch marks. Young people tend to grow very fast during puberty which puts extra strain on the dermis. Males often get stretch marks on their shoulders and back, whereas females tend to get them on their hips, thighs and breast. An if you have close relatives who have stretch marks (such as your mother) the risk may be greater.
