2. What Do Stretch Marks Look Like?

Stretch marks don't look the same on every body, and they change over time. Some appear as bright red or purple streaks while others present as indented lines. The color typically fades, though they never entirely disappear. Their appearance depends on where they are located, the person's skin type and color, how long they have been there, and what caused them.
