Stretch Mark Causes
Both men and women are susceptible to stretch marks, particularly on the thighs, hips, arms, buttocks, abdominal area, and lower back. There are several causes of stretch marks, including:
- Genetics: Women are more likely to get belly stretch marks if their mother, for instance, had stretch marks after pregnancy.
- Significant weight gain and loss: Your skin stretches as your weight fluctuates, sometimes resulting in stretch marks.
- Puberty: Growth spurts during puberty often result in stretch marks as the skin is unable to keep up with the body’s rate of growth.
- Bodybuilding: Rapid development of muscle mass may stretch the skin beyond its limits.
- Corticosteroids: Heavy or long-term use of oral or topical corticosteroids, a widely used pharmaceutical steroid compound, can lead to stretch mark formation.
- Ethnicity: People with darker skin are less likely to have stretch marks.

Laser stretch mark removal is highly effective for treating brightly colored reddish stretch marks because lasers will significantly reduce the red color and help to treat the inflammation that typically surrounds the area. Additionally, the laser works to stimulate collagen and elastin to improve the overall appearance of the skin. IF your stretch marks are paler in color and the texture of the skin is your primary concern, fractional laser therapy is typically used.
