There are many benefits of using Juvederm over Radiesse during your hand rejuvenation treatments. Body By Buford, Denver's leader in plastic surgery procedures, recommends using Juvederm because it makes the treatmant safer and last longer.

Because no matter how big your bling,Guest Posting when your hands don’t look good, neither will your jewels.

When it comes to daily skincare and beauty regimes, our hands are all but forgotten. Let’s “face” it, we all get excited when we hear news of the next anti-aging product that promises to eliminate wrinkles or firm and tone our complexions. Yet in our eternal quest for the latest and greatest beauty secret, we often forget to care for what could be the most sensitive body part of all: our hands. The simple truth is that our hands are actually one of the first places to start showing visible signs of aging...and by the time we recognize the problem, there’s no amount of hand cream that can reverse the years of neglect.

Thanks to advancements in cosmetic fillers and injectibles, today it’s easier than ever to breathe life back into our hands. Dr. Gregory Buford of Beauty by Buford has created a revolutionary new program called Total Hand Rejuvenation to a successfully treat age spots and discoloration from sun damage, injury scarring, loss of fatty tissues and enlarged veins… all culprits in aging hands.

With individually customized treatments designed with you in mind, Total Hand Rejuvenationmay include laser treatments to remove damaged skin or age spots; chemical peels to improve the quality and texture of the skin, encouraging remodeling and collagen growth; Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane injections to instantly restore skin’s volume and replenish hydration; and Intense Pulsed Light therapy to improve the appearance of age spots and other effects of skin damage. A personalized, at home self-care package encourages prolonged results and helps keep your hands looking fresh and vibrant.

Dr. Buford’s revolutionary hand rejuvenation treatments may include:

  • Laser treatments to remove damaged skin or age spots and bring back smooth, fresher-looking hands
  • Chemical peels to improve the quality and texture of the skin and encourage skin remodeling and collagen growth
  • Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane injectable gels to instantly restore skin’s volume and replenish hydration
  • Intense pulsed light to improve the appearance of age spots and other effects of skin damage
  • Individually designed at-home maintenance program to encourage maintenance of revitalized skin and prevent further age-related changes

Why choose Juvederm over Radiesse?

Hands are not a very forgiving area, and Dr. Buford uses Juvederm because it's a smoother filler with less chance for clumping and bumping. Historically, there is more pain in injection with Radiess than with Juvederm. Currently, Dr. Buford is using a topical anesthetic with the Juvederm Total Hand Revjuvenation, whereas with Radiesse, lidocane is injected prior to the procedure. Recently, a national media outlet described a similar process to Dr. Buford’s Total Hand Rejuvenation, but one that uses a different injectible - Radiesse. Dr. Buford’s use of Juvederm in his procedures is based on several key differentiators between Juvederm versus Radiesse:


  • Approved by the FDA in June 2006
  • A smooth consistency gel made of Hyaluronic Acid (a naturally occurring substance in all mammals that helps to hydrate and add volume; Acts as a natural lubricant within our bodies; Helps maintain cell hydration, joint lubrication and other biologic functions; been used for more than 20 years for injection into arthritic joints to aid movement as well as for eye surgeries and wound repair
  • More fluid injectible, more gelatinous and more forgiving
  • Injected below the skin’s dermal layers around the veins to plump and restore volume
  • Instantly restores skin’s volume and    smoothes away wrinkles and folds
  • Most patients only require one treatment and see immediate improvements in the treatment areas
  • Minimal recovery or downtime
  • Long lasting (up to one year) results
  • Contains the highest concentration of non-animal Hyaluronic Acic of any dermal filler currently available
  • Does not require an allergy test
  • Side effects include temporary injection site reactions like redness, firmness and swelling


  • Approved by the FDA in December 2006
  • Composed of Calcium Hydroxypatite (microspheres of calcium that is said to fill and encourage collagen growth) NOTE: microspheres will show up on x-rays and CT scans. It is important to inform your doctor that you have had Radiesse treatments prior to the above procedures
  • Causes volume expansion initially due to the carrying medium
  • Injected below the skin’s dermal layers to fill out the hollow areas between the tendons (Elle, Feb 2007)
  • Initially performs as a filler; at 2-3 months  it starts to degrade gel carrier; then dissolves gel carrier as new collagen is formed – is said to have immediate results from the carrier)
  • May require less frequent treatments or retreatments (www.radiesse.com)
  • Recent media article cited 10 days of swelling, arthritic feeling, and inability to perform everyday activities (Elle, Feb 2007)
  • Lasting results (clinical studies state up to 6 months)
  • Made of calcium based microspheres that are suspended in a water-based gel
  • Does not require an allergy test
  • Side effects include temporary redness, bruising and swelling; there have been no studies of possible interactions between Radiesse and drugs or other substances/implants.

For those who are interested in hand rejuvenation, yet don’t know where to start or are discouraged by the myths surrounding cosmetic surgery, Dr. Buford is committed to providing clients with honest feedback so they can make informed treatment decisions. And interested parties shouldn’t be deterred by age: Of the 100 patients queried for a BODY by BUFORD survey, 46% of respondents had their first procedure between the ages of 25 and 29.

“Given the beating that our hands take, they are prone to aging much faster than the rest of our bodies,” says Dr. Buford. “So I’ve been trying to educate my clients, emphasizing that maintaining a youthful appearance starts with the hands.”
