"This center is very nice and the staff extremely good , a few years ago I heard about the Bensimon Center after searching cosmetic fillers on sale on the internet and the Bensimon Center was having a half price deal on all their fillers, I went in and got a beautiful job done on my lips , cheeks and chin area , I hope they have another 50% off sale , I would jump to go again and get my face serviced again. 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
Personalize Your Facial
The HydraFacial system is designed to be safe and effective for men and women of all ages and skin types. The procedure will be customized to meet your specific needs. Skin concerns that may be addressed by a HydraFacial include:
- Brown or sun spots
- Chronic or infrequent outbreaks of acne
- Decreased skin elasticity or firmness
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Large or congested pores
- Oily skin
- Rough skin texture
- Uneven or dull skin tone
HydraFacials can be performed in our office in about 30 minutes. The procedure will begin with a thorough consultation to determine the best approach to the facial. Once your plan is complete, you can relax in one of our treatment rooms as your procedure begins. HydraFacials include six main steps: cleansing, exfoliation, pore extraction, hydration, adding nourishment, and protection. These steps are customized to your skin's needs with the appropriate cleansers, level of exfoliation, moisturizers, serums, and other products. A HydraFacial can be further customized with another complementary facial treatment available at our office.
What to Expect with HydraFacial®
If needed, you will be able to reapply makeup following your HydraFacial to cover any redness before you return to your daily routine. You will likely see noticeable skin improvements shortly following your procedure with full results in a few days. For maintenance of your newly improved skin tone, Dr. Bensimon recommends these treatments in monthly intervals. During your consultation, we can help you schedule future treatments and discuss creating a home skin care routine to keep your complexion healthy in between HydraFacial treatments.
HydraFacial Ideal Candidates
How much does a HydraFacial cost?
The cost of your HydraFacial will be determined by the products or serums used during your treatment and if you add on any other procedures. During your consultation, Dr. Bensimon will listen to your concerns and assess your skin before developing your custom HydraFacial. After this, he can discuss the cost of your treatment. Bensimon Center often offers specials on skin treatments, like facials, and discounts when you buy a package of sessions.
Can I customize my HydraFacial?
Yes. Your HydraFacial will be customized based on the needs of your skin. We offer a variety of vitamin-rich and anti-aging serums that can help refresh your complexion. At the beginning of your appointment, Dr. Bensimon will listen to your concerns and goals before examining your skin. After this, he can discuss his recommendations for your facial. You can also discuss complementary treatments, like microneedling or a chemical peel, which can further improve the health and appearance of your complexion.
How often should I get a HydraFacial?
Ideally, you should get a HydraFacial every 4 – 6 weeks to maintain the health of your skin. Regular, professional facials help to remove dead skin cells and nourish your complexion so it looks and feels great. During your consultation, Dr. Bensimon or a member of his aesthetic team will discuss how often you should schedule appointments to reach your initial goals and then to keep your skin healthy.
How can I maintain the results of my HydraFacial at home?
A good skin care routine at home can help you maintain the results of your HydraFacial. After your treatment, one of our skin care professionals can recommend products that are right for your skin type and goals. It's also important to wear sunscreen and avoid lengthy exposure to UV rays (both natural sunlight and tanning beds).
