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.

"My experience at the Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery was stellar from start to finish. I went to Dr. Tamburrino because he is double-board certified – a HIGHLY trained and experienced plastic surgeon. A very cheerful and informative staff greeted me upon entering. Dr. Tamburrino answered all of my questions and he alleviated my concerns. I really appreciated his honesty. He does not try to oversell on procedures but provides his expert opinion on what he thinks will look amazing and NATURAL! I’ve gone to other plastic surgeons before (because I had breast cancer) however Dr. Tamburrino is truly the best! He is an artist and perfectionist. I am so happy with my results! I cannot recommend anyone higher than Dr. T!"- M.D. / Google / Sep 29, 2019

"I highly recommend Dr. Joseph Tamburrino and his wonderful staff! I had breast cancer and was devastated at the internet photos of breast reconstruction. I did not want to look like that! When I went to Dr. Tamburrino, he immediately put all my fears to rest. He said no one would be able to tell I had breast surgery, and he is right! After breast reconstruction, I feel like me again! I don’t feel like and look like I have had breast reconstruction. I can’t say enough of Dr. Tamburrino’s wonderful bed side manner. He makes me feel important and cared for. His staff is just as wonderful, and they helped me through a very difficult time of my life."- L.K. / Google / Aug 29, 2019
"I can not say enough about the wonderful care I have received from Dr. Tamburrino. I have a very complicated medical history and was on steroids for 2 years. I developed Breast Cancer and had Bilateral Mastectomies. Dr. Tamburrino expertise cautioned me against Reconstruction until I tapered and was off the steroids. I was extremely disappointed however his opinion to wait was the proper thing to do. It was worth the wait as I go through weekly visits since January to have my expanders develop. His kind, caring, professional manner down right enjoyable. I had not been having trouble with pain until as I draw nearer to the end. I had one week where I was experiencing more pain than usual. As it progressed I called Dr. Tamburrino who saw me in minutes at his office. I fortunately was visiting family in Doylestown because I live two hours away. It was Easter Eve at 10 pm he saw me and relieved my terrible pain. So willing, helpful and kind! He has been the most amazing physician, when dealing with a Cancer diagnosis having him help me through this Reconstruction has been an uplifting experience. Anna his nurse makes you feel like family. She’s been supportive and caring. Kristen his Administrative Assistant is always upbeat and helpful! At the time waiting a year seemed so awful, but Dr.Tamburrino’ s professional opinion was totally in my best interest and I know now that giving me the best care was his goal. Thanks Dr. T, you are the BEST!! Lyn McNair"- L.M. / Google / Aug 29, 2019
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.
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.
