HGF in Rancho Santa Fe, CA

HGF, or Human Growth Factors, is popular for its use in treating hair loss. At Fairbanks Med Spa in Rancho Santa Fe, we also offer HGF to treat musculoskeletal injuries. Several studies have shown that HGF is effective in speeding up the healing of ligaments and tendons.

The introduction of HGF in sports medicine has many benefits. Many people suffer from chronic pain and limitations due to imperfect healing. With HGF at our medical spa, we can help you return to your normal level of functioning before the injury.

What Is HGF?

At our med spa in Rancho Santa Fe, we have patients who are familiar with HGF because they’ve heard about one of its other uses and patients who never heard the term before. HGF stands for Human Growth Factors.

Our blood consists of white blood cells, red blood cells, platelets, and clotting factors in plasma. HGF is platelets and plasma without other blood elements. We use the patient’s blood in his or her treatments. We draw blood then put it in a machine that separates other elements and only gives us HGF.

HGF can then be injected back. It’s used in dental surgery, treating hair loss, and in sports injuries.

What to Expect

The entire procedure takes between 30 to 60 minutes. After injecting HGF into the affected area, we recommend icing it and resting for about three days to maximize healing and limit swelling. Most patients get back to their normal level of activity within a week. Full healing, however, can take months.

At Fairbanks Med Spa, we like to go a step further for our patients and their safety. That’s why we inject HGF under ultrasound guidance. Instead of going in blind, we use an ultrasound to see what we’re injecting. Injecting under ultrasound guidance is associated with better results and fewer side effects.

HGF has shown to be effective in treating multiple sports injuries like Tennis and Golfer’s elbows. It’s also useful in treating tendon, muscle, and ligaments tears. Even those with knee osteoarthritis might benefit from HGF.

What Our Patients Say

Alicia provides a calming atmosphere for facial treatments. She is delicate and kind. She is educational in her treatments by explaining her process as well as information regarding the product she is using. She provides the best facial i have had. I will return and advise others to do the same.

I had a hydra facial with Alicia. She explained everything she was doing and the product being used. She even made recommendations for my aging skin. I left with my skin feeling soft and fresh. The facility was clean and had a comfortable atmosphere. Extra care was taken to make my experience pleasant and rewarding.

I received the most amazing facial from Alicia. She had prepared me for a potentially less relaxing facial than a traditional facial, as I had booked a hydrafacial. I don’t know what she was talking about. Alicia explained in interesting and terrific detail what was happening but she didn’t over-speak. It was more relaxing than i expected and the facial/neck/shoulder/arm massage was decadent. I felt like i learned so much while also getting a special dose of CHILL. I’ll absolutely be back and feel inspired to approach skin care from a more educated and informed perspective. I won’t waste my time anywhere else.

Neighborhood Jewel! Dr. Gram and the team are very knowledgeable and helpful. The day spa is second to none with the Hydra-facial. It was the most comfortable and effective facial I have ever had.
