Stretch marks or striae as they are called in dermatology, happens if your skin does not have enough collagen and elastin. The can appear on knees, hips, shoulders, breasts, buttocks and other places where the skin may stretch.
So, stretch marks are a form of scarring of the skin that happens with growth or weight gain.
Due to hormonal changes, teenagers and pregnant women are at risk of developing severe stretch marks as they grow. As the body grows quickly, the normal production of collagen and elastin can’t keep up with the new growth, and stretch marks appear. Collagen is the major protein the is the make up of the skin tissue.
