Stretch Marks (cont.)


The outlook for stretch marks is excellent, as their appearance typically improves with time and treatment is not required. The presence of stretch marks during pregnancy has been associated with pelvic relaxation, resulting in prolapse of the pelvic organs with advancing age. Other medical associations, outside of endocrinologic diseases such as Cushing's syndrome, have not been demonstrated.
