What are scars, cellulite, and stretch marks?

Scars, cellulite, and stretch marks are all skin conditions. An individual can also experience these three skin conditions at the same time.

Scars

The skin is specifically designed to be the first barrier against several infections. When you suffer an injury or skin cuts, the skin barrier begins to breach, and your body responds by closing it as soon as possible. Scar tissues are totally different from the other surrounding skin tissues. As a result, scars stand out and are a noticeable blemish. Most scars fade automatically, but they never completely disappear.

Cellulite

This is a common and harmless skin condition that causes dimpled or lumpy flesh on the abdomen, buttocks, hips, and thighs. This skin condition is most prevalent in females. Sometimes, cellulite is described as having an orange peel or cottage cheese texture. Cellulite makes your skin appear bumpy and rumpled with areas of peaks and valleys. You can see cellulite if you pinch your skin on the thighs or buttocks. Stretch marks are not the same as blue, purple, or black streaks.

Stretch marks

Stretch marks are indented streaks that appear on the breast, abdomen, buttocks, hips, or other body parts. Stretch marks are common during pregnancy, especially during the last trimester. They are not harmful or painful, but typically people don’t like the way they make the skin look.

What causes scars, cellulite, and stretch marks?

Scars

Scarring is a part of your body’s healing process after the tissue damage. When your skin is wounded, skin tissue breaks, which causes protein known as collagen to be released. Collagen will build up to where skin tissue is damaged for helping to heal and strengthen the wound. For several months, new collagen forms and increased blood supply cause the scar to become lumpy and raised. After some time, collagen breaks at the wound’s site, the blood supply reduces, and the scar gradually becomes softer and smoother.

Cellulite

A buildup of fat under the skin causes cellulite. Some females are more prone to it than others. Cellulite varies on how noticeable it is based on age, body fat percentage, and genes. Skin thickness also affects the appearance of cellulite.

Fat distribution in females is more visible than in men. The collagen fibres between the muscle and skin separate the underlying fat into multiple pockets. Cellulite becomes more visible when skin loses elasticity and becomes thinner.

Several possible causes of cellulite can be;

  • Pregnancy
  • Weight gain
  • Genetics
  • Inactivity
  • Hormones
  • Accumulated toxins
  • An unhealthy lifestyle
  • Poor diet

Stretch marks

Stretch marks arise when your body grows quickly for any reason. This is because the skin cannot stretch enough to keep up.

Causes of stretch marks can be;

  • Breast implant surgery
  • Quick weight gain (both in males and females)
  • Spurt child growth during puberty
  • High steroids amount
  • Marfan syndrome
  • Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS)

What are the common types of scars, cellulite, and stretch marks?

The following are the types of scars;

Normal fine-line scars

A minor wound will usually heal to leave a raised line. The scar will not disappear entirely and leave a visible line or mark.

Hypertrophic Scars

Excessive collagen production at the site of wounds causes hypertrophic scars. This scar does not extend beyond the original wound and may continue to thicken for up to six months.

Keloid Scars

A keloid scar occurs when too much collagen is produced at the wound’s site. These scars keep growing and maybe painful or itchy. Keloid scars rise above the skin and can be red or pink.

Pitted or sunken scars

Several skin conditions such as chickenpox or acne can cause sunken or pitted scars. These scars are also known as ice-pick or atrophic scars.

Scar contractures

Usually, burns cause scar contractures. These scars occur when the skin shrinks, leading to tightness.

Cellulite types are;

Soft cellulite

Soft cellulite is also known as flaccid cellulite associated with sagging skin. This cellulite is found in the body areas where fat accumulates, such as the legs, hips, buttocks, stomach, and arms. Soft cellulite is not painful when touched.

Hard cellulite

Hard cellulite is the cause of orange peel (a skin condition) and can affect all genders, including slim and young people. Blemishes and depressions characterise hard cellulite on the hips, glutes, and thighs.

Edematous cellulite

Edematous cellulite is associated with poor circulation. This is the least widespread form of cellulite. Poor blood circulation aggravated by fluid retention causes this cellulite. Edematous cellulite can affect the knees and thighs.

Stretch marks types are;

Striae atrophic

This is a common type of stretch mark. A breakdown of collagen and elastin causes striae atrophic.

Striae distensae

This type of stretch mark occurs during puberty. These marks involve linear lines looking like stripes.

Vergetures

Vergetures translate to stretch marks. These are long patterned stretch marks that resemble with whip’s lashing.

Striae gravidarum

This type of stretch mark only occurs during pregnancy and represents one of the most common connective tissue changes.
