While practicing neurorehabilitation, Dr. Rubin started working with botulinum toxins mainly for the treatment of spasticity. Over the ensuing seventeen years, Dr. Rubin has injected thousands of patients with botulinum toxin for numerous therapeutic purposes. In addition he has participated in multinational studies of botulinum toxin and has investigated novel uses of the toxin. Although his initial use of Botox was therapeutic, over time patients started requesting he inject them for cosmetic purposes. Because of his thorough knowledge of facial neuroanatomy, including the actions of the muscles of the face, this leap from neurology to aesthetic medicine was seamless and natural. So he undertook the study of aesthetic medicine. To date he has trained in most aspects of aesthetic medicine, including the use of lasers for color correction, skin tightening and skin resurfacing. Dr. Rubin is the Florida President of the Alliance for Patient Access and serves on their Board of Directors. He is the recipient of the 2008 Patient Access Advocacy Hero award from Medtronic.
