For both male and female patients alike, hair loss is often an unwelcome and embarrassing sign of age. And while no one expects to deal with this problem until well into middle age, hair loss has been known to occur in individuals as young as the twenties or thirties. A receding hairline and thinning hair leaves many people feeling self-conscious, as their outward appearance no longer matches the youth and vitality they feel inside.

Dr. Sheena Kong's extensive background in internal medicine prior to her cosmetic practice has given her a deep knowledge of, and respect for the body's own regenerative processes. This is why so many of the nonsurgical aesthetic solutions she offers are focused on harnessing the body's natural healing capabilities. For hair restoration, she often recommends a combination of nano fat transfers and the injection of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).

PRP Hair Restoration

Stem Cells Found in Fat Tissue

The various uses for stem cells have long been discussed in medical literature. While most cells in the human body are programmed to fulfill one function by becoming a particular type of cell, stem cells are those which have not yet been "programmed" and are therefore still capable of becoming any type of cell. Stem cells are found in hair follicles and are an integral aspect of hair generation. Adipose tissue, more commonly known as fat, contains a high concentration of regenerative stromal cells.

While nano fat transfers (small transfers of fat harvested in one part of the body and injected into another) are often used to provide more volume where needed, this isn't the only use of a nano fat graft. As the restorative properties of stem cells can be used to generate new hair, small transfers of fat to the scalp can be used to combat hair loss.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients:

You are on our minds during this recent outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID 19), and we felt it is appropriate to keep you informed of the procedures and actions we are taking to ensure your health and safety.

Our practice is considered a low risk environment, however, we take 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 regard to all patient appointments:

  • If you have any history of travel (or have come in contact with persons who have traveled) to countries where there has been a confirmed epidemic (China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Iran, Italy, Japan, and the US State of Washington), please call our office to reschedule your appointment.
  • We have implemented a “No Hand Shaking” policy at our practice during the outbreak to help limit casual contact and ensure the health and safety of our patients and staff. Please know that we appreciate you and are always happy to see you!
  • If you are experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness (cough, shortness of breath, fever above 100.4), we respectfully request that you reschedule your appointment at our practice until you are free from any symptoms for a period of at least 48 hours. We have asked our staff to do the same.

In addition to our already extensive level of cleaning and sterilization, we have supplemented these efforts with additional cleaning and sanitization of hard surfaces.

This is indeed a trying time in public health, but we also want you to know that we have some of the most stringent sanitization and infection control standards in any business, making our practice a safe place to visit. Should you have any questions about this issue, please do not hesitate to contact us.

For up to date information on the virus, we would like to refer you to the government website for the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, www.cdc.gov

Kindest Regards,
Dr. Sheena Kong and the Staff of Sheena Kong Medspa
