Stretch marks (खिंचाव के निशान), also known as striae, are a form of scarring on the skin with an off-color hue. Over time they may diminish, but will not disappear completely. Stretch marks form during the rapid growth of the body, such as during puberty or pregnancy. In pregnancy, they usually form during the last trimester, and usually on the belly, but also commonly occur on the breasts, thighs, hips, lower back, and buttocks. These are known as striae gravidarum. There is no evidence that creams used during pregnancy prevent stretch marks. Once they have formed there is no clearly effective treatment, though various methods have been attempted and studied. Although there is no much harm from the stretch marks, Siddha Spirituality of Swami Hardas Life System considers that our readers should know about symptoms, causes, prevention, and various treatments, etc.
Stretch marks Meaning (खिंचाव के निशान का अर्थ)
Stretch marks Symptoms (खिंचाव के निशान के लक्षण)
Striae, or “stretch marks”, begin as reddish or purple lesions, which can appear anywhere on the body, but are most likely to appear in places where larger amounts of fat are stored; the most common places are the:
- Upper arms
Young women are generally affected the most and often seek treatment for them from a dermatologist and following pregnancy. Over time, they tend to atrophy and lose pigmentation. The affected areas appear empty and are soft to the touch. They pose no health risk in and of themselves, and do not compromise the body’s ability to function normally and repair itself, however, they are often considered a cosmetic nuisance.
Stretch marks Causes (खिंचाव के निशान का कारण)
Stretch marks appear to be caused by stretching of the skin. In other words, an increase in cortisone levels can increase the probability or severity of stretch marks by reducing the skin’s pliability; more specifically, it affects the dermis by preventing the fibroblasts from forming collagen and elastin fibers, necessary to keep rapidly growing skin taut.
This can create a lack of supportive material as the skin is stretched, and lead to dermal and epidermal tearing, which in turn can produce scarring in the form of stretch marks. This is particularly the case when there is new tissue growth.
Examples of cases where stretch marks are common, also given by the Mayo Clinic, include weight gain (in the form of fat and/or muscle), pregnancy, and adolescent growth spurts, though it is also noted that some medications, as well as other medical conditions and diseases, may increase the likelihood of stretch marks appearing.
In the case of medication, the Clinic points to “Corticosteroid creams, lotions and pills and chronic use of oral or systemic steroids” as a common contributing factor; in the case of medical conditions that can contribute to stretch marks, examples given include Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Cushing’s syndrome, Marfan syndrome, and “adrenal gland diseases”.
Stretch marks Pregnancy (गर्भावस्था में खिंचाव के निशान)
Pregnancy stretch marks, also known as striae gravidarum, is a specific form of scarring of the skin of the abdominal area due to rapid expansion of the uterus as well as sudden weight gain during pregnancy. About 90% of women are affected.
One study of 324 women, done just after they had given birth, demonstrated that low maternal age, high body mass index, weight gain over 15 kg (33 pounds) and higher neonatal birth weight were independently correlated with the occurrence of striae. Teenagers were found to be at the highest risk of developing severe striae.
These off-color blemishes are symptoms of pregnancy caused by the tearing of the dermis, resulting in atrophy and loss of rete ridges. These scars often appear as reddish or bluish streaks on the abdomen, and can also appear on the breasts and thighs. Some of these striae disappear with time, while others remain as permanent discolorations of the body.
The current literature suggests that in the general population of the US, there is a 50%-90% prevalence of striae associated with pregnancy, partly as a result of the normal hormonal changes of pregnancy and partly due to stretching of skin fibers. Genetic factors such as family history and race also seem to be predictive in the appearance of striae.
Stretch marks Prevention (खिंचाव के निशान की रोकथाम)
A systematic review has not found evidence that creams and oils are useful for preventing or reducing stretch marks in pregnancy. The safety in pregnancy of one ingredient, Centella Asiatica, has been questioned. Evidence on treatments for reducing the appearance of the scars after pregnancy is limited.
Stretch marks Treatment (खिंचाव के निशान का उपचार)
There are no clearly useful treatments for stretch marks, although there are many different suggestions on how to remove them or lessen their appearance.
Various efforts have been tried including laser treatments, glycolic acid, and microdermabrasion. Topical tretinoin is categorized by the FDA as a known teratogen in animals, without adequate human studies on safety in pregnancy. Carboxytherapy is a known procedure; however, there is a lack of evidence to support how effective it is.

Stretch marks removal laser treatment (खिंचाव के निशान हटाने के लिए
Laser stretch mark removal consists of removing striae (stretch marks) via laser resurfacing. It works by removing the outer layer of skin to help restructure the overlying skin.
During the procedure, beams of light are used in concentrated amounts to encourage new growth. While it can’t get rid of stretch marks completely, laser removal may help make striae smoother, thereby reducing their appearance.
Two types of lasers are used for skin resurfacing treatment: ablative and non-ablative lasers. Ablative lasers (CO2, Erbium YAG) treat stretch marks by destroying the upper layer of skin. The newly generated skin tissues will be smoother in texture and appearance.
Non-ablative lasers (Alexandrite, Fraxel) don’t destroy the upper layer of skin. Instead, they target the underlying areas of the skin’s surface to promote collagen growth from the inside out.
Stretch marks removal cost (खिंचाव के निशान हटाने की लागत)

Stretch marks Home remedies (खिंचाव के निशान के लिए घरेलू उपचार)
Here are few effective home remedies for the removal of stretch marks:
Aloe Vera (एलो वेरा)
Aloe vera is a plant that helps regenerate skin tissue and as such it has miraculous healing properties. Take the fresh gel from the leaf and massage onto the area with stretch marks and leave on for 20-30 minutes. Do it daily and wash off with tepid water.
Cocoa Butter (कोकोआ मक्खन)
The use of cocoa butter helps reduce stretch marks and I have seen that if used during and after pregnancy it makes the stretch marks disappear completely. The best time to use cocoa butter is at night, so massage it well into the skin and over a period of time, you will find the stretch marks reducing and fading away.
Cucumber and Lemon Juice (ककड़ी और नींबू का रस)
Lemon juice’s natural acidity helps heal and reduce scars and cucumber juice provides the cool soothing effect leaving your skin fresh. Mix lime juice and cucumber juice in equal parts, and apply the mixture on the affected areas till it gets soaked up by the skin. Let it be on your skin for approx. 10 minutes after which you can rinse it off using warm water.
Castor Oil (अरंडी का तेल)
Because of their dried, shriveled up look, stretch marks need nourishment and moisture. Castor oil when massaged onto the skin will help heal and smoothen the marks slowly. But this is something that you need to constantly feed the skin with.
Stretch marks Terminology (खिंचाव के निशान शब्दावली)
Medical terminology for these kinds of markings includes striae atrophicae, vergetures, stria distensae, striae cutis distensae, lineae atrophicae, linea albicante, or simply striae.
