Improve Your Appearance Without Plastic Surgery

Something comes to mind for all of us when we hear the term “plastic surgery”. Maybe it’s something you saw on television, or perhaps you’ve had a friend or family member tell you about his or her experience. While any plastic surgery procedure should be taken seriously, they’re often misrepresented as a big, scary ordeal, which deters people from making changes to their physical appearance, no matter how much they wanted a difference. Without knowing the truth about plastic surgery, it’s understandable that many people want to start small, and that’s perfectly fine. You absolutely can see noticeable changes in the face and body through the application of nonsurgical procedures, and the team at Zannis Center for Plastic Surgery provides these procedures to our Raleigh patients regularly with great success.

If you’re not ready to commit to a surgical procedure to change your look just yet, learn how these nonsurgical options can improve your appearance below, or request a consultation.

Nonsurgical Procedures at Zannis

You have several options to choose from at our Raleigh office if you want to improve the look of your face or body that don’t require surgery. These are great options for someone who wants to keep plastic surgery as far down the road as possible or who is simply satisfied with minor changes. The important thing to remember, however, is that even though these procedures don’t require invasive surgery, they should still be carried about by a reputable, qualified medical professional to ensure you get safe, high-quality results.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels gently but effectively peel away the the top layers of the skin, resulting in skin that looks brighter, healthier, and more youthful. This is a great solution for people wanting to address sun-damaged, unevenly pigmented, or finely wrinkled areas of the face’s skin.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal requires no surgery, is non-invasive, and involves very little pain. Most people actually refer to it as a brief stinging sensation that’s more uncomfortable for a short time rather than painful. With this procedure, we’re able to eliminate or greatly reduce hair growth on any area of the body.


In as little as 20 minutes, a Clear+Brilliant procedure will have your skin looking fresh and revitalized. Lasting results can be achieved over multiple treatments thanks to how simple but powerfully effective this procedure is.


Botox is a fast, simple way to address those stubborn face wrinkles. Unlike more invasive procedures, it requires no healing time and causes minimal discomfort. In fact, we’ve had many patients do it on their lunch break and be back to work an hour later.

Soft Tissue Fillers

For more established wrinkles, lines, and facial aging, soft tissue fillers are a better option, as they’re more effective than Botox. These injectables help restore the structure of the face and add volume to problem areas.

Obagi Skin Care Treatments

Have a problem with photodamaged skin? Fed up with wrinkles, lack of firmness, or hyperpigmentation? An Obagi skin care treatment may be just what you need to resurface and even out the skin.

Rejuvapen Resurfacing

The rejuvapen stimulates collagen production without the use of lazers. This simple procedure painlessly perforates the skin through medical micro-needling, helping naturally stimulate the skin’s ability to heal.

Tattoo Removal

The Zannis team regularly helps Raleigh patients remove unwanted tattoos with minimal scarring using laser tattoo removal, dermabrasion, and full excision techniques. Results are often impressive, but depend on the nature of the tattoo.
