If you have skin problems that seem like they will plague you forever, don't give up hope yet. Maybe you’ve tried aesthetic lasers and other laser procedures and you simply haven't found the right treatment yet. One treatment that you could try is called Micro-Needling, or Dermaroller. But before you try it you should have a full understanding of how the technique works.


It Stimulates Collagen Production in Your Skin Cells

The first thing you need to know about the Dermaroller skincare technique is that it stimulates collagen production in your skin cells. Collagen is a special substance that acts almost like a guard or medicine, protecting the cells from damage and keeping them in the best possible shape. Along with collagen, healthy skin cells also produce elastin, proteins, and other substances that help to keep skin tight and smooth looking.

Unfortunately, as we grow older, our bodies stop making so much of these substances on their own. That's when fine lines, wrinkles, and other skin problems can start to appear. When that starts to happen, it's time to find a fast solution.

But wait, there`s more! »

InsuranceIn order to better meet their needs, consumers would be well-advised to reevaluate their insurance coverage and company yearly. The reasons for this are that life situations change, and with them insurance needs also change. Many people tend to go with the company their parents had, or stick with the same company for years without checking into other options that might provide lower rates or better benefits.

Things to Consider:

Some insurance companies are changing the way they do business. One recently new development is that insurers are now taking credit scores into consideration before providing a rate quote. If your credit score is less than stellar, shop around for a company that doesn't use that as a criteria. 

Another thing consumers should know before they commit is what discounts they qualify for and which companies offer them. Some companies offer discounts for multiple policies, such as having both home owners and auto insurance or having both private and commercial auto insurance. There are also discounts for safe drivers, having certain anti-theft devices installed in your home or car, new driver discounts and for paying the yearly premium in advance.
