We have the tools to achieve natural-looking results that help improve your skin.

Philosophy

Known for his use of multiple modalities and customized treatment protocols, Dr. Gene Rubinstein’s expertise spans the skin-care spectrum. His Studio City practice, which encompasses cosmetic, surgical and general dermatology and a 3,000-square-foot laser center, caters to celebrity clientele who demand a camera-ready appearance. “I’ve developed a very subtle technique with fillers that fosters undetectable results—even under high definition cameras,” he explains. The doctor often relies on a combination of medical and aesthetic therapies to restore skin that has been damaged by acne, environmental aggressors or aging.

About My Practice

What makes your practice distinctive?

We take a comprehensive approach to skin rejuvenation to help patients get the best possible results. For most concerns, a combination of lasers, fillers and aesthetician services are combined to achieve an optimal outcome. 

What is your patient care philosophy?

Patients have their own ideas about what they want to achieve. It’s my job to listen to their concerns, note their goals, and explain to them in a medically accurate and concise way what is and is not possible. 

How do you stay on the cutting-edge?

I keep up to date through medical journals and attending professional meetings, but more importantly, I am a constant student of my trade. I examine scientific evidence and learn how to improve upon what I already know. Learning about new techniques and always asking the question, “Is there a better way to do this?” is an integral part of my practice. 

About Me

How much of your practice is medical versus cosmetic?

It’s about 50-50. The two play off one another, but as a dermatologist, I always look at things from a medical perspective first. It’s not uncommon for a patient to come in for a cosmetic laser treatment and during the procedure, we find, diagnose and remove a melanoma. 

How would your patients characterize you?

Caring, gentle, responsive and very scientific in my approach.

Why did you become a dermatologist?

I was doing internal medicine when I realized that many disorders can be diagnosed by looking at skin, and that fascinated me. I also liked the aesthetic component; I’m artistic and the fact that dermatology combined medical know-how with artistic creativity was very appealing. 

What do you enjoy most about your job?

Interaction with my patients and that look in their eyes post-treatment. People want to look the way they feel inside, and when we can achieve that, it makes all the difference in their self-esteem.

    We offer SculpSure®, a new noninvasive laser procedure that reduces fat in the target area by 25 percent
  3. Career-defining procedure
    The first time I injected filler and made under-eye bags disappear, the patient was so incredibly happy, and felt like it was a miracle

    Whether it’s acne, psoriasis or sun damage, giving a patient newly clear skin is truly rewarding

    Give treatments time to work. Many skin conditions are complex, even common ones like acne are very individual with a multitude of variables.

Testimonials

I recommend photofacials to all my friends

Elsa D. D.
"I am so happy I was referred to Dr. Rubinstein by a good friend who has been seeing him for many years. She looked so great that I trusted going to her doctor. I am very pleased with my results. I had a photofacial and Juvederm. It's been about four months since I started my transformation and I am looking better than I have for a long. My sunspots have subsided and I am wearing less coverup. I recommend photofacials to all my friends now. So this is a very good find. "
