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.

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 Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery 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 Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery, 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 Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery in Doylestown, PA so you can maintain your results.
