Stretch marks are a form of scarring generally associated with pregnancy, obesity, bodybuilding, and — to a lesser extent — puberty.
They come about as skin is overstretched, disrupting the normal production of collagen.
They first appear as reddish or purplish lines, but tend to gradually fade to a lighter color.
