Stretch marks are formed by tears in the dermis (the middle layer of skin). These tears are usually the result of rapid weight changes, and may be influenced by factors such as puberty, pregnancy, hormonal changes, and bodybuilding. Stretch marks are more common in women, but also affect men. A stretch mark is usually colored red or purple when it forms, and will fade over time into silver or white lines.
