Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients:

Our office has been open since June 15, 2020. We consider the well-being of our patients and staff as our highest priority and it is always best to take sensible precautions during a time like this.

Our staff have all been vaccinated, and we have had no single case of COVID-19 due to our strict protocols. We have an extensive level of cleaning and sterilization between patients for your safety while in-office. I appreciate your efforts in keeping our practice a safer place!

Please note the following in regards to all patient appointments:

We are asking patients who experience any of the following symptoms to self-quarantine and cancel their appointments: fever, shortness of breath, change of sense of smell or taste, runny nose, sore throat, coughing, chest pain, any direct contact with Covid-19 positive individual(s). COVID-19 testing is no longer required for certain procedures for fully vaccinated patients.

We do provide a Virtual Consultation for your convenience: Virtual Consultation if needed, but we strongly recommend taking advantage of our in-person consultations since those are most effective for meeting with Dr. Sheena Kong or Colette Janes.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to welcoming you to our office!

Kindest Regards,
Dr. Sheena Kong

It is common for the cheeks to lose their healthy volume and fullness as a result of aging. Because of this, the face can take on a sallow appearance, with a lack of definition in the cheeks and chin. Allergan, the maker of products like Botox and Juvederm, developed a product in the Juvederm family called Voluma XC, which has earned FDA approval to treat the age-related loss of volume in the cheeks. Dr. Sheena Kong is pleased to offer the Juvederm Voluma San Francisco treatment to patients at her downtown San Francisco practice who want a healthier and happier-looking facial appearance.

How Does Voluma XC Work?

Voluma XC is a hyaluronic acid-based product designed to restore fullness to the apex, apples and hollows of the cheeks. Upon injection, the product plumps the hollow area and produces a "lifted" effect for a more youthful-looking face. Voluma XC is specially formulated with Allergan's Vycross technology for a smooth, even result.

The hyaluronic acid gel acts as an inflatable cushion, supporting the cheek tissue and structures. It also has a hydrating effect and brings water to the surface of the skin for a supple-looking face.

Treatment Details

Prior to treatment, the skin will be cleansed. Voluma XC contains lidocaine, a numbing agent, but additional anesthetic can be administered, if need be.

Dr. Kong will inject small amounts of Voluma XC into the cheeks using a very fine needle. She will select strategic points around the apex, apples or hollows of the cheeks, depending on where you need the most volume. The number of injections will depend on the degree of correction necessary and the size of the treatment area.

When Dr. Kong has finished making the injections, an ice pack should be applied to the area to reduce any discomfort or swelling.

Voluma XC treatment does not require significant downtime or recovery. You will most likely be able to return to your regular activities within 24 hours of treatment. For the first day or so, be careful to avoid putting pressure on the treated area, as this could cause the product to migrate.

Benefits of Voluma XC

Patients love our San Francisco Juvederm Voluma XC treatment not only because it adds youthful fullness to the face, but also because treatment is quick and easy. Appointments will take less than an hour and can be conveniently scheduled. Side effects are very rare, but include tenderness, swelling, firmness, bruising and redness/discoloration.

Over time, the body will simply absorb the Voluma XC. Repeat treatments are recommended to maintain your results. Dr. Kong can put together a treatment schedule, if you are interested.

Learn more about Voluma XC

Please contact the office of Dr. Sheena Kong to learn more about the product and what to expect during treatment.

Dr. Kong can also explain the other injectable products, like Botox, Juvederm and Restylane, available at the practice.
