WHAT IS BOTOX?
To reduce the effects of aging and to avoid lines, wrinkles, and lax skin from developing on the upper section of the face, Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in Doylestown, PA is proud to offer BOTOX to men and women in the Greater Philadelphia area and beyond. This nonsurgical procedure provides outstanding results and is extremely popular with patients of varying ages. BOTOX can dramatically improve the look of lines and wrinkles, which are the result of muscle contractions that occur when expressions are made. The BOTOX formula is a filtered strain of type A botulinum toxin that temporarily freezes the movements that occur in the upper face. However, depending on the severity of your wrinkles, some deep lines may or may not go away when the muscle movements are blocked.
To soften and smooth out these folds, BOTOX is injected into the skin. These injections are personally administered by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Tamburrino in his office. Usually, the formula will be applied between the brows where the number "11" appears, around the eyes (Crow's feet), and across the forehead.
What are benefits of BOTOX?
Fine lines and facial folds can take away from our better attributes, as well as making us seem more aged than we really are. BOTOX is a fantastic option for helping you achieve a younger, smooth aesthetic. Although the outcomes are not permanent, you can enjoy the benefits for a few months prior to wanting to consider a second procedure. You may also receive other benefits from BOTOX at Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, such as:
- Brief appointments: BOTOX treatments usually take as few as 10 minutes.
- No rest or rehab: Owing to the nonsurgical qualities, you can be free to resume your everyday schedule after sessions.
- Minimal discomfort: BOTOX treatments use a very small needle, making the procedures seem like a small prick of the skin.
- Simple maintenance: Individuals who wish to maintain the appearance semi-permanently should notice that follow-up treatment appointments are short and feasible for everyday life.
"Highly recommend! I have been searching for the right place to go to for Botox for almost 2 years and have finally found it! Dr. Tamburrino does a phenomenal job.

I have now found what will be my “go to” place that I will refer all of my friends and family too! Thank you so so much I could not be happier! I will be back!"- J.M. / Google / Sep 09, 2022
"I’ve been getting Dysport on and off for over 10 years. Dr. Tamburrino had been doing my injectables consistently for 5 years. He treats my wrinkles and neckbands with Dysport. He has kept me youthful and very natural looking by replacing lost volume (fat loss from aging) with filler in my face. It took a lot of trust in my doctor for me to get filler in my face. I am so thankful for his knowledge and skills. I would only go to a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon like him for my filler and Dysport! He takes his time to explain everything in detail which makes you feel comfortable and ready for treatment. I recommend JoeTMD to all my family and friends. Everyone is extremely happy with their results! I also see Susan for my skin care. Susan is the best Medical Aesthetician! I’ve been seeing her for almost 2 years. She has changed my skin for the best! With her advanced treatments like Dermaplanes, laser hair removal, Hydrafacial, Vi-Peels, and great medical grade skin care products that work, my skin feels 10 years younger. Overall with injectables and skincare Tamburrino Plastic Surgery and Med Spa can be your one stop shop for youthful skin!"- A.M. / Google / Nov 30, 2022

"Dr. Tamburrino is an exceptional surgeon and person! Beyond his obvious skill and talent, he is incredibly kind and caring. I chose to see Dr. Tamburrino for a breast reduction after years of neck and shoulder pain. When I first met with Dr. Tamburrino, he took the time to listen, explain the procedure, and answer any questions that I had. I felt completely at ease throughout the entire process. I am so thrilled with my results! I feel beautiful and comfortable in my body. I should mention that I traveled from NYC to Pennsylvania to see Dr. Tamburrino- I needed to see the best surgeon! I continue to see him for botox and lip filler. His staff is fantastic, too!"- E.M. / Google / Jan 26, 2023
"I have been a patient of Dr. Tamburrino for the last 3 years and will never trust or go to anyone else. He reconstructed my former breast augmentation and kinda created a miracle...they were a mess and an embarrassment, i now love and no longer hate to look at myself in the mirror. Along with that he revised a long time scare from a tummy tuck that i was just insecure about...i no longer hide these scares thanks to Dr. Tamburrino... Not the end of my experience. .i had my lips done and because of the technique he used by numbing my lips before injecting it was absolutely the easiest procedure i had ever had as most give you ice packs and you barely make it through...the pain is so bad.... I tell everyone that is interested in lip injections to seek out Dr.Tamburrino... My botox, is a work in progress as it should be.........it takes time for an expert to figure out what your specific needs are. No 2 faces are i alike. I will never put my trust in another Specialist........as i can say this practice is a team effort that actually cares"- J.G. / Google / Feb 10, 2023
WHO CAN GET BOTOX?
BOTOX is ideal for individuals who hope to soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles throughout their upper face without the need for surgery. BOTOX can also be used as a preventive anti-aging treatment, even if wrinkles have not yet formed. This can be especially effective for patients as young as in their 30s since everybody makes facial expressions. Additionally, it's an effective nonsurgical treatment if you have obvious forehead wrinkles, parallel lines between the brows, or lines around the eyes. If you have deeper facial folds, a filler product may be recommended along with BOTOX.
Those who are over the age of 50 with severe wrinkles may be considered for a facelift rather than nonsurgical options. Surgeries, like facelifts, offer more impactful results that last longer than wrinkle relaxers or fillers. Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa offers eyelid surgeries, facelifts, and brow lifts as great alternatives for those who may not qualify for nonsurgical treatments.
HOW DOES BOTOX WORK?
BOTOX injectable treatments are performed as an outpatient procedure here at Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa. If this is your first time to visit our office in Doylestown, PA for BOTOX, we often perform the treatment on the same appointment as your initial consultation with Dr. Tamburrino. You will be asked to make several expressions that engage your upper face, such as squinting, frowning, etc., to allow us to mark where the injections are best placed. The skin will be cleaned, and BOTOX will be injected under the skin with a fine needle, followed by the application of a cool compress to help lessen swelling, bruising, and discomfort. You can request a numbing cream to increase your comfort level, but this is typically not needed. BOTOX injections typically take about 10 – 15 minutes to complete, after which you can return to your usual daily activities.
What to Expect
Following the procedure, you may get back to your typical activities, but strenuous exercise should be postponed for at least 24 hours. You will be advised to sleep with your head propped up for at least one night. You will also be warned to not touch your face as this could cause the formula to spread to other areas. The treated areas of your face may appear swollen, bruised, or red for a couple of days, but you most likely won't develop any severe or lasting side effects. In the majority of cases, it takes about one week before the final results of BOTOX can be seen. Outcomes typically last 3 – 4 months. You can speak to your injector about how often to schedule follow-up visits at Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa to maintain your new youthful look.
How safe is BOTOX?
When administered by a professional like Dr. Tamburrino, wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX should not cause any complications. Our team knows how to use just enough of the medication to freeze the facial muscles while leaving the surrounding areas unaffected. Patients should follow our post-care instructions and avoid pressing down on the treated areas to prevent unwanted side effects.
What about BOTOX parties?
Too much BOTOX can cause undesirable outcomes. This is why BOTOX parties, or events where people inject themselves with wrinkle relaxers, are a risky idea. When administered incorrectly, you may even paralyze unintended muscles that can result in an abnormal appearance. Treatments should always be administered in a medical setting with an experienced injector.
Are dermal fillers better?
BOTOX and dermal fillers are both popular treatments for a reason. While BOTOX relaxes the underlying muscles, dermal fillers add volume to fill hollow areas and creases. Dr. Tamburrino can make recommendations for one or the other based on your cosmetic goals or combine the two for dramatic and youthful-looking results.
Just Express Yourself
When you receive BOTOX injections, you can smile, frown, laugh, and make any other expression you want without having to worry about the effects it could be having on your appearance. To smooth out folds and prevent lines from developing throughout the upper face, we invite you to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Tamburrino in Doylestown, PA. A member of our skilled team would be more than happy to tell you all about the amazing outcomes BOTOX could provide for you as it has for thousands of patients in the past.
