What is Dysport?
Dysport was originally invented by Dr. Lee Young Seob, a renowned plastic surgeon in the plastic surgery capital of the world, Seoul, South Korea. He noticed that a traditional intra-muscular Botox injection causes a stiff and expressionless face that is why he came up with a special method using dysport and the result was amazing.
