I love how beautiful and natural I looked , the results are addicting!"- H.H. / Yelp / Feb 08, 2019
"How unusual to find professionals that are as considerate and as gracious as they are wonderful at what they do. I had researched The Bensimon Center and learned that Dr. Bensimon has an international reputation, that he mentors and teaches in this country and throughout the world. I knew several people who were clients of Dr. Bensimon and Andrea Stapleton and received nothing but raves about their skills. So, I expected to be satisfied by their technical ability and pleased with the result. Nevertheless, entering my first appointment I was pretty apprehensive about getting any cosmetic work done, at all. I should not have been. Over the several years that I have worked with them, Dr. Bensimon and Andrea Stapleton have been thoughtful, have taken the time to educate me about what they were advising, and why, and have offered complete and accurate appraisals of what I should expect. I don't like going to doctor's offices but have to say that visiting the Bensimon Center is great... so is how I look and feel when I come out."- J.W. / Google / Jan 18, 2020

"I've lived in five cities including NYC and have had a long life of experiences and I can say with 100 percent conviction that you will never get a better more honest and thorough consultation and more professional care and procedure than with Dr Bensimon. I've had two procedures and he has literally changed the way I see my body and has returned my self esteem and confidence. What he recommended was not the most complicated or the most expensive option because he thought it was the right one for me instead. The results have been been even better than he predicted. His staff is helpful friendly and professional. If I moved back to NY I would fly back here for anything I needed done. You will literally be in the very best hands."- M.H. / Yelp / Dec 25, 2019
Youthfully Smooth and Full
Juvéderm injections, on average, only take about 15 – 30 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated. Your face will be cleaned and injection spots will be marked. To minimize discomfort during the treatment, Juvéderm fillers contain lidocaine (a local anesthetic). After your treatment, you can resume your normal routine, but strenuous activity, like exercise, should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You should be careful to not touch your face after your injections to avoid moving the filler into unintended areas.
You should experience a noticeable improvement immediately after your Juvéderm treatment, but you may also see mild swelling or bruising in the treated areas for about 7 – 10 days. The results of Juvéderm injections usually last up to one year; some patients find that their improvements last longer after a few years of treatments. Talk to your injector about when to book a touch-up or full treatment at Bensimon Center to maintain your results.
Juvéderm Ideal Candidates
How much does Juvéderm cost?
The price of Juvéderm will vary based on how much filler is necessary for the treatment area. Prior to your session, a customized treatment plan will be created to fit your aesthetic goals and budget. After this, your injector can discuss cost estimates and payment options.
Are Juvéderm injections painful?
Though most patients do not find it necessary, a local anesthetic can be applied to the treatment area prior to injection if you are worried about any pain. Following the treatment, you may experience some slight swelling and bruising that will usually subside within a week, depending on the treatment area. You should contact our office if you experience any lasting pain or abnormal side effects after your Juvéderm treatment.
What is the difference between a wrinkle filler and relaxer?
Relaxers and fillers address facial wrinkles but in different ways. Wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX, work to smooth dynamic wrinkles caused by frequent muscle contractions. Juvéderm is an injectable wrinkle filler that corrects static wrinkles and adds volume. Juvéderm is ideal for treating mild to moderate wrinkles or to add volume to your lips and cheeks.
What results can I expect?
It may take a few days to see the full results of your Juvéderm treatment. Typically, it only takes one treatment session to achieve your desired outcome. However, you can schedule a follow-up appointment if you would like to improve your results.
How long do results typically last?
The effects of one Juvéderm treatment can last anywhere from 1 – 2 years. This will vary, depending on what filler is used and where it was injected. The longevity of results can also depend on how fast your body breaks down the filler.
