About nonsurgical contouring
Are you unhappy with the contour of your body? No matter how much time you spend in the gym or count calories, sometimes it's just not enough to attain the lean, sculpted shape you desire. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jennifer Dharamsi and her highly trained team of providers are excited to offer an effective solution. Nonsurgical body contouring with truSculpt 3D or Pellevé can provide stunning results for men and women. Although both of these treatments utilize state-of-the-art radiofrequency technology to create a tighter shape, they are different. truSculpt 3D targets fat cells while Pellevé treats lax skin. Call Legacy Dermatology & Restoration Center in Frisco, TX to learn more about nonsurgical body contouring. We look forward to helping you achieve your cosmetic goals.

"Wow! I was referred to Legacy Dermatology by a friend. The entire experience was exceptional! From the sign-in to checking out, I can’t remember the last time it was actually a pleasure to go to a Doctors office. Dr. Earnest is simply phenomenal! She is attentive, thorough, answered all of my questions and allayed all of my fears. They are also very prompt. It’s obvious they run a great medical practice and care about their patients and their patients time. Kudos!"- E.S. / Google / Nov 14, 2019

"I have been coming to legacy dermatology for about 6 months or so and my experience with Patrice has been amazing. Not only did she recognize I had rosacea, but she has been an integral part in my overall skin journey. By following her regime and living a better lifestyle my skin has improved tremendously. We are now working on my hyperpigmentation from previous breakouts and I know with her guidance my skin will continue to improve! Definitely give P.A. Patrice and Legacy Dermatology a chance! Side note, but definitely just as important.... the staff is amazing!"- K.B. / Google / Nov 08, 2019

Nonsurgical body contouring can be a great treatment option for any individual who has stubborn fat pockets or lax skin that cannot be eliminated with diet and exercise alone. Nonsurgical body contouring can be used on various areas of the body, including the thighs, flanks, abdomen, and arms. Individuals should be in overall good health and be at or near their goal weight.
The procedure process will vary, depending on the type of treatment you select.
truSculpt 3D: This treatment uses RF energy to heat up and destroy the layers of fat that sit beneath the skin surface while simultaneously tightening the overlying skin. The heating procedure causes the fat cells to turn on the natural biologic process of programmed cell death (apoptosis), through which the cells gradually die and get resorbed and eliminated from the body over the course of 6 – 12 weeks. Most patients will experience a reduction in their fat pocket size by about 25-30% with a single treatment session.
Pellevé: With advanced RF technology, this treatment targets skin cells deep beneath the surface to stimulate collagen production for tighter, younger-looking skin. Our patients often comment that this procedure feels like a relaxing hot stone massage and results in a radiant and healthy glow that lasts for several days, which is a nice additional perk to add to the tightening effect. This treatment usually takes about 30 minutes per target area.
What to Expect
Since these are noninvasive treatments, you will be free to resume your usual routine after your appointment. Typically, you can expect the treatment area to be red or swollen, but these are temporary symptoms and should subside by the following day. If you have any abnormal or lasting symptoms, please call our office.
