What are buttock stretch marks and what causes them
First, you need to understand how buttock stretch marks happen they usually happen because of weight gain on the upper layer of skin during rapid growth and causes the tissues in that part of the skin to tear. The dermis layer ruptures and thus it causes the skin layer to be overstretched due to excessive fat cells or loss of fat cells due to unstable weight. The stretching of the skin in the area thus causes the discoloration of one part thus buttock stretch marks appear. In addition, the loss of collagen in that part of the skin causes stretch marks to appear as well.
However weight loss or gain is not the only reasons for the appearance of stretch marks in the buttocks area. Buttock Stretch marks have become prominent in most pregnant women who have stretch marks for the sole reason that the butt area expands during pregnancy and thus overstretches the fibers in the skin causing collagen to break and the skin loses its elasticity during the period of childbirth and conception. Thus pregnant women also wish to get rid of those irksome buttock stretch marks either through natural treatment or surgical ones.
