Striae or the strech marks are easily recognisable pink or whitish, shriveled lines on certain parts of our body. The surface layer of the skin is unchanged while in deeper layers, collagen and elastin that give our skin firmness and elasticity have become thin and torn. These are the permanently torn fibers of collagen and elastine. In the beginning, striae are reddish, because in the transparent torn tissue the blood vessels can be seen, and in time the blood vessels contract and the striae become whitish and loose in volume.
