Restylane in Miami, FL
Restylane® is a breakthrough dermal filler treatment that changes your approach to anti-aging treatments.

Rubinstein, M.D., F.A.C.S., a board-certified plastic surgeon, has helped hundreds of people just like you to gain an advantage over the aging process. Dr. Rubinstein offers Restylane® and other advanced dermal filler treatments to residents of Miami, Fort Lauderdale and South Florida in his convenient Aventura office.
What Is Restylane®?
Restylane® is an injectable dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid, which attracts moisture and binds with water, helping your skin essentially hydrate itself, leading to a more youthful appearance. As part of the aging process, your body produces less hyaluronic acid, so your skin loses the hydration it enjoyed when you were younger. Without much-needed moisture and hydration, your skin weakens and collapses into lines, wrinkles, creases, and folds. Restylane® replenishes the hyaluronic acid in your skin to restore and maintain healthy hydration levels in the deep layers beneath the surface, where wrinkles begin. The moisture makes your skin cells plump and voluminous, smoothing out lines, creases, wrinkles, and folds.
The Restylane® line of dermal fillers consists of a series of clear gels containing hyaluronic acid. Each Restylane® product is designed to behave similarly to the hyaluronic acid produced by your own body while targeting different areas and treating specific imperfections in the skin.
Benefits of Restylane®
Dr. Rubinstein may recommend Restylane® as an alternative to cosmetic surgery, or as a complementary treatment in conjunction with surgery. Some of the benefits that Restylane provides are:
- Safe, simple treatment takes only 15 to 60 minutes
- No downtime is required when performed as a stand-alone treatment
- Contains only all-natural ingredients not harvested from animals

How Should I Prepare For Restylane®?
Restylane® is an FDA-approved cosmetic treatment that has been used globally for more than 10,000,000 treatments and is safe and effective when administered by an experienced, qualified medical practitioner such as Dr. Rubinstein. Although Restylane® contains only natural ingredients, and, therefore, allergic reactions to it are rare, it is important that you discuss any history of allergies and other medical conditions with Dr. Rubinstein prior to treatment. As with any dermal filler treatment, please inform Dr. Rubinstein if you have received any other injections recently and if you are taking any medications. Restylane® treatments may have to be delayed if infections, inflammation, acne, rashes, or other skin irritations are present.
How Is Restylane® Administered?
Dr. Rubinstein may administer a numbing agent to the treatment areas to prevent any discomfort. The Restylane® gel formula is administered via direct injection into the skin using a very fine, small gauge needle. You will notice immediate results following the treatment, but you will continue to see increased improvements over time as lines and creases disappear gradually thanks to the increased hydration in your skin cells. In most cases, one treatment lasts approximately 10 to 12 months.
