What Are Injectable Fillers?
Injectable dermal fillers are non-surgical treatments that correct such problems as sagging skin, flattened facial contours, wrinkles, lines, creases, folds, and thin lips caused by the aging process. Dermal fillers come in a variety of formulas that target specific problems and temporarily restore youthful appearance for periods up to two years. Dr. Rubinstein may recommend an injectable dermal filler as a standalone treatment or in combination with plastic surgery.
Benefits of Injectable Fillers
Injectable fillers are administered via an outpatient procedure that is minimally invasive, and there is no recovery period required to interrupt your everyday routine. The healing process from the injectable filler treatment is quick, and most patients resume their regular activities immediately following treatment. Injectable filler treatments usually take less than one hour to administer. Some patients may require several treatments, and some treatments produce results gradually, but you will notice improvement immediately after a single treatment.
Who is a Good Candidate for Injectable Fillers?
If you are concerned about any of the following skin conditions, injectable fillers might be a good option for you:
- Wrinkles, lines, creases or folds on any part of your face
- Visible crow’s feet, laugh lines, smile or frown lines
- Deep creases from the nose to the corners of your mouth
- Thin, sagging, or undefined lips

What Kinds of Injectable Fillers Are Available?

How Should I Prepare for an Injectable Filler Treatment?
Little to no preparation is required before your injectable filler treatment, however, prior to your consultation with Dr. Rubinstein, mention whether you are taking any medications, particularly any medications that affect blood clotting, such as aspirin, NSAIDs or blood thinners. Also inform the doctor as to whether you are taking medicines that affect your immune system, or if you are experiencing any type of skin reaction or irritation such as cold sores, cysts, pimples, rashes, hives, or an infection. Dr. Rubinstein may recommend delaying treatment until any reaction or irritation has passed.
How Are Injectable Fillers Administered?
Dr. Rubinstein will offer you the option of applying a topical anesthesia to prevent any discomfort during your injectable filler treatment. To treat fine lines, the filler must be delivered to the outermost skin layers, whereas deeper lines, wrinkles and creases require delivery to the deep, innermost layers. Dr. Rubinstein will carefully and precisely inject the dermal filler into the areas of your face where treatment is warranted. A very thin fine-gauge needle is used to inject the fillers, and some patients report a stinging sensation during insertion and slight possible discomfort afterward, but you will be free to continue your day’s activities immediately following treatment.
How Much Do Injectable Fillers Cost in Miami?
Injectable filler treatments constitute an elective cosmetic procedure. Therefore, most health insurance providers will not provide coverage for the costs. To ensure that your injectable filler treatment remains affordable, Dr. Rubinstein’s office offers easy financing
options and accepts cash, personal checks, and credit cards as forms of payment.
