We're all familiar with the signs of an aging face: wrinkles, bags under the eyes, hollow cheeks, and loose, sagging skin. Any of these symptoms of aging can be traced back to two main factors: the decrease of collagen present in the skin over time, and the gradual loss of tissue volume that occurs as we age. Collagen gives the skin its structure and firmness, so as it decreases, our skin begins to sag and wrinkle, losing the tightness of youth. As we lose fat and tissue volume, the facial features are no longer as "full" or plump as they were in our earlier years, accentuating a loose, droopy effect.

Because these two factors together are responsible for the signs of aging in the face area, the majority of nonsurgical treatments to target wrinkles and loose skin are aimed at strengthening collagen and/or replacing lost volume. By combining a San Francisco Fraxel laser treatment to stimulate collagen growth with a nano fat transfer to replace lost volume, you can address both factors that lead to a wrinkled, aging face for long-lasting, dramatic improvements. Dr. Sheena Kong offers this effective, signature combination at her med spa in San Francisco. Make sure to ask her about this combination during your consultation if you are looking to erase signs of aging.

Fraxel Laser & Nano Fat Transfer in San Francisco

Fraxel Laser Technology

Fraxel treatments utilize an extremely precise laser to specifically target microscopic areas of damaged skin, allowing the lasers to pinpoint the old, damaged skin cells while leaving healthy ones unharmed. In the areas targeted, heat from the laser stimulates new collagen growth and the regeneration of new, younger skin at every level. Some patients notice an almost immediate improvement in their skin, but the most significant results will appear in the weeks following the treatment, as the deepest layers of the skin regenerate and regrow.

The recovery experience following a Fraxel laser treatment is fairly comfortable, with immediate after-effects often described as comparable to a mild sunburn. Any redness and discomfort will dissipate over the course of the next few days.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients:

Our office is open starting on 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.

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, runny nose, sore throat, coughing, and/or chest pain.

(This also includes those that have been in contact with COVID-19 positive individuals such as traveling to and from any high risk areas such as New York/New Jersey to self-quarantine and cancel appointments.)

  • All patients will have temperatures taken and are requested to wear a mask throughout their appointments.
  • We are limiting the number of appointments to reinforce social distancing.
  • Only the patients who are receiving a treatment are allowed in the office (pets, children, family and friends are asked to stay at home).
  • For procedures that patients cannot wear a mask, we request patients to obtain a COVID-19 test 3-5 days prior to their scheduled appointments (see below for testing information).
  • These treatments include:
  • Facial laser treatments
  • Facial filler injections
  • Lip injections
  • Thread lifts
  • Ultherapy
  • Thermage

This also includes procedures that are delivered with closer proximity to patients over a long period of time:

  • Smartlipo
  • Inside Out Neck Lift
  • Coolsculpting
  • Thermage on the body
  • Cellfina

(Positive Covid-19 results or lack of tests will result in appointment cancellation.)

For Botox, Hair PRP, Kybella and Coolmini treatments, a COVID-19 test is not required prior to the appointment as long as patients keep masks on during the entire appointment.

COVID-19 Testing Information:

For COVID-19 testing, you can do either the nasal swab or the saliva test, of which the latter may be more comfortable.

You can order your saliva test at the following link 2 weeks before your appointment for it to arrive in time; Vault health will prepare the paperwork for your reimbursement. Your first test should be covered by your insurance under the CARES Act:

https://www.vaulthealth.com/covid

Once the test arrives, please schedule your consultation about one week prior to your appointment. With the guidance of a Vault Health nurse, collect saliva for the test and then overnight your completed kit via FedEx (provided by Vault Health). Your results will be available about 2-3 days afterwards. You will then email Dr. Kong at info@sheenakong.com the results once you receive them.

Lastly, in addition to our already extensive level of cleaning and sterilization, we have supplemented these efforts with additional deep cleaning and sanitizing of surfaces. I appreciate your efforts in keeping our practice a safer place!

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Kindest Regards,
Dr. Sheena Kong
