Stretch Marks and Bodybuilding

Did you know that pregnancy isn’t the only cause of stretch marks? While it’s true that 90% of women will experience the development of stretch marks during their pregnancy, they’re not the only people who experience stretch marks. In fact, stretch marks can affect anybody. Adolescent growth spurts, sudden weight changes, and even gains from the gym can all stretch your skin in a way that leaves you with stretch marks. 

Weightlifting and stretch marks 

Whether you’re bodybuilding, or just trying to tone up a little bit, strength training does cause your skin to stretch, and could leave you with stretch marks. Whether you’re looking to prevent stretch marks, or you’ve already hit your gains and you’re looking to reduce the visibility of existing stretch marks, there are topical solutions that fulfill this need. 

Areas of the body affected by stretch marks from weight training

If you’re strength training, or doing any form of exercise that will bulk you up quickly, or change the shape of your muscles, you are likely to experience some form of stretch mark. While there are no adverse health effects from stretch marks, you might be self-conscious about your appearance. 


Areas of the body affected by stretch marks:

  • Neck
  • Shoulders
  • Biceps
  • Calf muscles 
  • Thighs
  • Abdominal muscles

Stretch mark prevention in bodybuilding

Our stretch mark prevention oil is a must-have if you’re trying to prevent stretch marks outright. Our clinically proven formula uses Gotu Kola & Tocopherol (Vitamin E), which have been proven to significantly decrease the risk of stretch marks as well as diminish the appearance of stretch marks. It’s also important to know that it’s always more effective to prevent than to treat stretch marks, but if you are just hearing about us now, we have you covered!

Stretch mark treatment

If you’ve been hitting the gym hard and notice that you already have stretch marks from your bodybuilding, you’re still in luck. Our stretch mark repair cream has been shown to decrease the visible length of stretch marks by 50%, and decrease depth by 72%. 


Our ScarMD Stretch Mark Repair Cream will:   


  • Reduce the visible length and depth of the stretch mark
  • Reduce the appearance of redness, discoloration, and discomfort associated with stretch marks
  • Improve the visible indentation of the stretch mark
  • Soften scar tissue thereby improving texture

We’re the solution for you

Whether you’re expecting, or your progress at the gym is causing stress on your skin, you need not worry! While prevention is always the best approach, sometimes you don’t know what you don’t know, and need a solution after the fact. We’re in the business of making you feel and look your best, no matter what body type or phase of life you may be in.
