Many teenagers experience stretch marks during puberty as well. Be it man, woman, boy or girl, stretch marks are vexing little things, and everyone can benefit by getting rid of them. There are several medical and surgical treatments to help you do this, but these treatments usually make use of chemical ingredients, which have their own set of side-effects.
