Skin conditions, like cellulite and stretch marks as well as natural scars, or those caused by an injury, can create an appearance on a person’s skin that they can feel embarrassed by and might want to hide or cover up. Pregnancy, rapid weight gain and puberty can often cause stretch marks, while things like skin thickness and the distribution of body fat can influence the visibility of cellulite.
Stretch marks are best described as narrow streaks or lines on the surface of the skin. They are usually long and thin and often red or purple to start with, before fading to a silvery-white colour. Cellulite, which is common in women, has a dimpled appearance on the skin and is usually found on the hips, thighs and buttocks. It can range from mild, involving up to four superficial depressions of the skin and a slightly sagging appearance, through to severe, which consists of 10 or more deep depressions where the skin is severely draped.
