"Why is everyone getting older but me?! Well, the Bensimon Center has everything to do with that. I have been going to the Bensimon Center for over 4 years and have found the experience to be stellar. The staff is friendly and supportive and the medical staff are kind, compassionate and extremely skilled. Andrea is the best injector I have ever experienced, I have had botox and lip filler, which she does like an artist, keeping everything balanced within the face and not overdoing it. You come out looking younger and that little bit better where even your best friends are wondering what you did. The Bensimon Peel for the face, is a game changer... its not that it just removes wrinkles and line, the tone in your skin is restored to that of a late 20s to early 30s! I'll keep coming back for more!"- E.B. / Google / Aug 30, 2019

"I received liposuction from Dr. Bensimon himself. Our initial consultation was great, I got to meet him and his nurses. They were thorough and open minded and very communicative with my needs, desires and wishes! During our two week pre op appointment, we took pictures and I met with two different nurses who were very thorough with me on information. They introduced a naturopath who gave me a lot of holistic information. I met once more with Dr.Bensimon. Day of surgery was amazing, relaxing and exciting. It was minimally invasive with no anesthesia. The procedure felt great and very comfortable. They played my my choice of music and gave me warm blankets and everything! I felt special, welcomed and that my outcome mattered. I highly recommend the Bensimon center!"- B.J. / Yelp / Jul 06, 2019

Radiesse injections take place in one of the treatment rooms at Bensimon Center in about 30 – 60 minutes after the consultation. First, you will be seated comfortably while the areas of injection will be cleaned and marked. Most patients feel only mild discomfort during their treatment at the initial prick, but if needed, a numbing agent will be applied to the injection sites. The dosage of Radiesse, selected at your personalized treatment planning session, will be prepared in an ultra-fine syringe. The marked injection sites will guide the injector to carefully administer Radiesse into the skin. After the procedure is complete, a cold compress can be applied to help alleviate swelling and bruising.
What to Expect
After your treatment, you may see some redness, bruising, and swelling. This is common and should only last for about 5 – 10 days. These side effects can usually be concealed with makeup. If the side effects last longer or seem excessive, please do not hesitate to call Bensimon Center. Most patients see some results immediately with better results developing over time. Your face should appear younger, softer, and have a natural glow. Radiesse tends to last longer than some of the other fillers — around 1 – 2 years. You should talk to Dr. Richard Bensimon during your consultation about when to schedule your next treatment to maintain your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Radiesse cost?
Because of how Radiesse is engineered and its longer-lasting results than some of the other fillers, the cost is slightly higher for this particular injectable. In addition, the cost will vary based on the number of units needed to achieve your desired outcome. During your consultation with Dr. Bensimon, we will discuss your goals and assess your skin so that we can create a treatment plan that is uniquely designed to attain the results you desire.
How does Radiesse compare to other fillers?
While filler products, such as Radiesse, are considered temporary, Radiesse is the only filler created with calcium-based microspheres, which are in some ways similar to hyaluronic acid injectable fillers because they have the ability to stimulate collagen production. Because of this, Radiesse has been shown to last longer than some of the other fillers. During your consultation, we will go over the available fillers and evaluate your skin tone, laxity, and volume levels to help decide which filler may be the best option for you.
How can Radiesse help with the hands?
Radiesse is the preferred injectable filler to use on the top side of the hands where the skin tends to thin with age, revealing veins and other irregularities. Injecting Radiesse in layers and massaging it over these visible areas immediately creates a softer look on the skin. It can make your hands look younger and healthier.
Are Radiesse injections painful?
Radiesse injections, like other filler treatments, are not painful. However, there can be a small degree of discomfort that can be minimized with a topical numbing ointment. This can be applied about 15 - 20 minutes prior to your injection treatment.
