Microneedling Services in Los Alamitos

Turn Back Time Using Gentle, Effective, Skin Rejuvenation with the AcuLiftTM MicroPen

Collagen and elastin are the essential protein fibers in the skin that give it support and elasticity. We lose about 1% of these fibers each year, eventually causing fine lines and wrinkles, skin sagging, and dull appearance. Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that creates microscopic channels in the skin which naturally generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, even toned and brighter, youthful looking skin.

Microneedling effectively treats fine lines, wrinkles, acne and other scars, improves skin texture and color and dramatically enhances effectiveness of high-grade serums used during and after treatment. Visible results begin on the first day and continue for weeks afterward. As collagen levels continue to build up, your skin becomes more luminous and complexion more even.

Dr. Painovich is uniquely qualified to perform Microneedling due to her in-depth knowledge of Chinese Medicine. Combining this ancient medicine with modern technology enhances health and beauty from the inside out. Body acupuncture and at times, Chinese herbs, address the internal causes of aging and organ imbalances, which often appear on the face and when combined with microneedling, drastically enhance the overall effects.

Microneedling treats:

• fine lines and wrinkles on face, neck and chest
• age spots (also called “sun spots”)
• acne scars
• uneven skin tone
• large pores
• other types of scars
• stretchmarks
• loose skin

What to Expect During a Treatment

Before a treatment, if desired, a topical anesthetic is applied to provide light numbing to the treated area. To ensure a gentle treatment, a physician formulated, organic, vegan serum prepared for your skin’s individual needs will be applied. The AcuLift™ MicroPen is then used to create controlled microchannels, eliciting your body’s healing response. This will remodel and rejuvenate your skin to provide a younger, more firm and radiant appearance.

Following the treatment, your skin may appear pink or slightly red, similar to a mild sunburn. This typically disappears after 12-24hrs. You will receive a patient aftercare kit to accelerate your recovery and results.


Results are sometimes apparent after one treatment and will improve over a series of 3-6 monthly treatments. Results will continue to progress for several months after your last treatment and can last up to 5 years!
