Here’s hope for improvement.
“Stretch marks” is the term for indented streaks on the skin that usually show up on the breasts, thighs, abdomen, buttocks, and hips. They are more prevalent among pregnant women, especially during the third trimester. Stretch marks aren’t painful or harmful, but for some, they can be a cosmetic concern. Stretch marks vary in color, size and shape, and may appear as:
- Indented streaks or lines in your skin
- Bright streaks
- Purple, pink, black, blue, or red streaks
- Streaks covering larger areas of the body
Stretch marks can fade and become less noticeable over time—but sometimes they can be persistent. If you’re concerned about stretch marks, come to Blue Ridge Skin & Vein Care.
