what is Dysport?
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Tamburrino is pleased to offer Doylestown, PA patients numerous nonsurgical options for skin rejuvenation. Similar to BOTOX, Dysport is an injectable wrinkle treatment that acts to soften and reduce dynamic wrinkles and severe lines throughout the face. Dynamic wrinkles form as a result of recurrent facial expressions and movements (like laughing, frowning, and smiling) that, over several decades, cause the muscles of the face to tighten. This leads the overlying skin to have a furrowed line that can be seen, even when the face is resting. Dysport is specially formulated to address one of the most common dynamic wrinkles: the vertical lines between the eyebrows known as frown lines. Dysport works to temporarily soften the muscle and provide natural-looking results that won't give you a "frozen" face.

"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
who can get dysport?
Dysport is a good choice if you want a nonsurgical treatment to address moderate to severe vertical glabellar (frown) lines between the eyebrows. Since dynamic wrinkles and lines are formed from the use of the muscles, they can develop at any age and might even create the effect of a mad, sad, or tired appearance. Dysport is an effective, fast treatment that smoothes dynamic wrinkles without producing a "frozen" look. Since Dysport's formula spreads throughout the skin to treat different areas of wrinkles, it's also great to address the fine lines in the corners of the eyes (Crow's feet). Many of our patients at Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa notice visible improvements just a few days after their procedure, which often lasts as long as four months.
how does dysport work?
Dysport injections are carried out in one of our treatment rooms after your consultation with Dr. Tamburrino. The session itself will only last around 15 – 30 minutes. A numbing cream or local anesthetic can be administered upon request, but this is usually unnecessary since the injections are done using a fine needle that causes little to no discomfort. The skin will be thoroughly cleaned and a series of strategically placed injections will be made along the eyebrows, followed with a cold compress to limit swelling and bruising. Following your injections at Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, you will be allowed to continue with your regular tasks, but you should avoid taxing activities (such as exercise) for at least one day.
What to Expect
Following a Dysport treatment, you may notice light swelling and redness around the injected area, but this should disappear within a few days. You should sleep propped up for the first night and may want to apply a cold compress if needed. Results are usually noticeable within 1 – 3 days and the appearance of your frown lines will be decreased to produce a softer, smoother appearance. These results typically last for about 3 – 4 months. However, more treatments may be scheduled at Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in Doylestown, PA so you can maintain your results.
Should I get Dysport or plastic surgery?
It depends. Dysport is designed to reduce the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles, while traditional facelift surgery reduces sagging or hanging skin. Dysport is an excellent option if you want smoother and younger-looking skin without going under the knife. Patients in Doylestown, PA, should discuss their cosmetic goals and expectations with a trusted professional before moving forward with one treatment or another.
What about dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are another option for reducing the appearance of wrinkles, and they are often recommended when patients want to fill out thin or hollow areas of the face. Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa can add volume to areas like the lips and cheeks through advanced dermal fillers. Again, it's best to review your options with a specialist before making a decision. We offer a variety of effective products that can provide your desired results.
Will my results look natural?
Dr. Tamburrino works hard to create a natural appearance through Dysport and similar aesthetic treatments. We want you to love your new look and feel more confident without seeming "fake" or "unnatural." If you want to reach a specific goal with Dysport or another injectable product, be sure to tell a member of our team. We can make sure you get the right outcomes.
Relax and Refresh
For patients hoping to achieve a smoother, refreshed appearance without resorting to surgical alternatives, Dysport may be a great option. Along with Dysport, our Doylestown, PA office provides a range of injectable solutions for women and men with diverse needs and goals.
