5 out of 5 stars Botox

The Best kept secret in Charlotte!!

If you are looking for a caring doctor, friendly office staff, and the most amazing results, then Dr. Kosari is the dermatologist for you!!! He is gentle and affable and very professional with excellent bedside manners. Based on my experience with many dermatologists and plastic surgeons for the past 25 years, I can indisputably say that Dr. Kosari's quality of work when it comes to...

5 out of 5 stars Mole Removal

Dr. Kosari is by far the best!

I had a mole removed. I was a little nervous because it was on my cheek and had the potential to scar badly. He explained every detail of what would happen and the results were phenomenal!! He's professional but also so caring; I would HIGHLY recommend him!

5 out of 5 stars Radiesse

Beyond pleased w/ my 1st Filler experience - Radiesse, Restylane Silk & Botox

For the first time, at the age of 36, I decided to take the plunge and try dermal fillers. It was the best decision ever! After having a consultation about the depressions in my mid cheeks and lack of fullness in my upper & lower lip, Dr Kosari decided to use a combination of Radiesse, and Restylane Silk. I couldn't be happier with the results! My cheeks and lips look naturally fuller,...

33 Y/o Seeking Filler for Improving Lost Volume - Charlotte, NC

I saw Dr. Kosari for Botox earlier this year & decided to go back to him to talk about improving the shape of my lips as well as replenishing lost volume in my cheeks. Dr. Kosari was great. He talked to me about what he would do and I liked his conservative approach. He explained that he could always come back & add more if I wasn't happy with the results, and that really put me at ease. I liked that he took the time to explain what he was seeing, what he wanted to achieve and whether or not that matched my hopes before he even started. He told me that the most noticeable "issues" were that my upper lip was a good bit smaller than my bottom lip and that my cheeks had lost quite a bit of volume. Basically, thats exactly what I had seen in the mirror so I decided to go for it. I'll spare the details on the needle sticks, but honestly, IT WASN'T THAT BAD. His sweet nurse put on numbing cream for me so that I wouldn't feel as much, and Dr. Kosari did an excellent job. He even encouraged me to call him that night if I was having any concerns or questions! Once again, an all around wonderful experience from a great young doctor!

60 Yr Old Female Botox/Filler Experience

Let me start off by saying, Dr. Kosari's work has truly exceeded my expectations. I scheduled an appointment to get Botox injections, and consult with him about potentially getting fillers (which I had never done before) a couple of weeks ago. I was always afraid of fillers for two reasons- one being I was scared of the pain, and two being I was afraid of looking unnatural. We decided to go...

THE One You Should Go to for Sclerotherapy, IPL, Fraxel - Charlotte, NC

I had been going to a "high end" dermatologist office in Charlotte to get IPL where you never even meet the doctor, so decided to research other options when I needed sclerotherapy. I concluded Dermatology, Laser & Vein Specialists was the place to go and I luckily was put with Dr. Kosari. I had such a good experience (I cannot talk enough about the difference from the other place) with...
