Although more frequently associated with pregnancy due to thinning and loss of elasticity and the tearing of collagen bundles, stretch marks are also a common feature of adolescence, both in boys and girls. Boys tend to get them on the back, buttocks and thighs and girls on the breast, buttocks, thighs and occasionally the upper arms and behind the knees. The marks are associated with increased hormone production as well as excessive or quick weight gain and growth spurts. Some skin lightening products can also thin the skin to the extent that the skin tears, looks more papery and forms a ‘stretch mark’. Although they are distressing there is no way to remove them, until now.
Stretch marks are a cause of low self-esteem for many sufferers, and can affect their self-image and even their choice of clothing.
