A Minimally Invasive Way To Look Younger

Dermal fillers are soft, gel-like substances that are injected under the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines, and soften creases or enhance facial contours. As we age, our body starts to lose collagen, an important substance that keeps skin hydrated, supple, and youthful-looking. At Zenn Plastic Surgery, Master Injector Tara Cypher RN, MSN, CANS, uses our dermal fillers in Raleigh to rejuvenate cheeks, lips, mouth area, crevices, lines, and wrinkles.

Are Dermal Fillers Right For Me?

Many facial wrinkles, especially those around the eyes (think “crow’s feet,” “frown lines,” “elevens”), can be treated with a neurotoxin like BOTOX® to stop the muscle activity that causes them. Other lines do not occur because of underlying muscle activity; rather, the cause is loss of tissue structure and volume. With dermal fillers, Tara can volumize and revitalize the face, re-establishing a youthful contour and removing wrinkles. Tara uses a variety of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers and other treatments, such as peels and microneedling, to achieve wonderful results.

A Variety Of Dermal Fillers To Choose From

Zenn Plastic Surgery offers several different options for dermal fillers in Raleigh, each with its own properties and suggested applications. Advanced Nurse Injector Tara Cypher, RN, MSN, CANS, has 20 years of knowledge and experience with dermal fillers, and guides each patient to the filler that is most beneficial to your particular areas of concern.

Sculptra® Aesthetic

Like Radiesse, FDA-approved Sculptra Aesthetic is another product that replaces collagen in the body, however with a different delivery protein. Sculptra is a product that is best administered by an advanced injector like Zenn Plastic Surgery Master Injector Tara Cypher RN, MSN, CANS, as it requires special advance preparation. Schedule a consultation with Tara to find out more.


Restylane is another excellent choice when it comes to hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. It is similar to the Juvéderm line of products. Like other dermal fillers, a small needle is used to inject the product. Restylane smooths away wrinkles, folds, and bumps on the skin. Effects generally last six months. If you seek treatment for a second time, at 4 ½ to 9 months after your first treatment, Restylane can last up to 18 months.

The Juvéderm® Family Of Fillers

The Juvéderm collection of dermal fillers treats multiple facial aging conditions and areas and includes the original Juvéderm formula, Ultra, Ultra Plus, Volbella, Volure, and Voluma. Thanks to the hyaluronic acid (HA) of Juvéderm® fillers, patients gain immediate facial volume. Each product differs in consistency and duration of action, and can be used in specific areas to achieve beautiful results. Juvéderm products allow the skin to retain moisture better, feel softer, and receive the key nutrients it needs for a more youthful appearance.


Collagen is the key to soft and supple skin in youth. Unfortunately as we age, collagen production decreases, causing the skin to sag. Radiesse stimulates the body to make more collagen. Radiesse is often used to rejuvenate the face and hands and is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), a mineral naturally found in the body. Following a Radiesse session, some bruising and swelling may occur, however, these symptoms will not last long. Most patients are able to return to daily activities fairly quickly. Results are apparent immediately, and due to the stimulation of new collagen production, they generally improve over time and last as long as one year, sometimes two. When the effects of Radiesse eventually begin to diminish, an occasional “touch-up” treatment can help to maintain optimal results.
