Similar to other stretch marks, skin stretch mark appear when weight loss or gain or even excessive exercising happen. It does not happen due to pregnancy only and appears on stomach since it is the area being affected during weight loss or gain since the stomach usually is the hardest area to exercise during rapid weight gain and pregnancy. Stretch marks happen on the stomach because the skin on the stomach is extended beyond repair causing a tear without skin repair thus creating ugly skin stretch mark.
They occur in women and men experiencing fast growth such as teenagers hitting puberty and occur in men who drink a lot of beer since they gain excessive weight in that particular area which is strained due to beer drinking and lack of exercise. Thus both women and men would like to reduce the appearance of fresh red skin stretch mark before they become permanent white stretch marks.
