Partnerships for Success: How 3 Vegas Entrepreneurs Made it on Top


In business and in life, who you surround yourself with is important; it affects your energy and flow. And with Tonia Ryan and Dr. Christopher Korsandi M.D., the duo’s success has turned heads. With Ryan’s 20 years in the skin care business and Dr. Korsandi’s renowned work as a plastic surgeon in the Las Vegas area, they created Smazy and Smazy Academy. is a skin care line of high quality, medical grade skin care products that are results driven. is an educational resource for their customers to utilize to learn how to take better care of their skin, answer popular questions, and use their smazy products.

Ryan and Dr. Korsandi’s skin care line, Smazy, is focused on three important beliefs about how skin care should be:

  1. Smart: No harmful ingredients in any product they create or promote. “There are so many different skincare products on the market that contain many harmful ingredients and that can be overwhelming and confusing to the consumer”
  2. Easy: “They wanted the skincare choices to be “easy” for the consumer to understand and be able to choose from. Smazy makes this easy by using clean and natural ingredients in their skincare products”.
  3. Savvy: “They wanted skin care products that were results driven and really did what they said they were going to do. They had to “work” and be of the highest quality.” 

Smazy’s products are clinically tested for the highest quality of naturally-derived ingredients. And all products are paraben and sulfate free, gluten free, cruelty-free, made in the USA, naturally-derived, and fragrance free.

Tonia Ryan is dedicated and constantly educating herself on the ups and downs of the industry and her success has paid off. Her experience is something that she can easily utilize for her skin care brands that she has created including Inance Skin. “Listen to others that inspire you,” she encourages.
