Two. The formation and development history of stretch marks.
Pregnant is hard enough. Why do you need to have stretch marks? This is an estimate that many pregnant moms will be wondering. In fact, the formation of striae gravidarum is due to the influence of hormones during pregnancy, coupled with abdominal bulge, so that the skin elastic fiber and collagen fiber damage or breakage, abdominal skin thinning and thinning, there are some different width, length of pink or purple wavy patterns.
Striae gravidarum usually appears at the sixth or seventh month of pregnancy. Women with dark skin often have white lines, which are lighter than the surrounding skin. The pattern of striae gravidarum development has three stages:
The first stage: early pregnant pink lines will cause skin itching.
The second stage: stretch marks will gradually expand the length and width, and the color will turn red or purple.
