Skin condition that appears due to the breakdown in the middle layer of the skin is called a stretch mark, while the skin layer that breaks is called dermis. As an outcome of constant tearing and pulling of the skin, little ugly scars that are called stretch marks appear. Stretch marks that one can see on the skin surface cause no pain, but can be really annoying, because they are easily seen, especially in the years of development. But, as a person gets older, stretch marks become less and less noticeable.
