Having a quick weight gain as a consequence of a growth spurt during teenage years, being pregnant or body building activities can cause linear scars which are called stretch marks to arise on your body. If your body grows too rapidly your skin is not flexible enough to stretch out that far so damage and tearing can take place in the top three layers called the epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous layers. This skin injury is what causes stretch mark scars to appear.
