Ok, listen, let’s just come out and say it: a little bit of weight gain IS FINE. If you’re regretting that extra helping of mashed potatoes during the holidays—DON’T. Of course, we want you to take care of yourself. That’s what self-love is all about! But you don’t need to panic if you’ve started the year off by gaining a few pounds. Live your life fully.
For many patients, though, living their best life means losing a few pounds or making a lifestyle change. As a result, they come to us for support along their journey. Sometimes they’re just starting out and want motivation. Other patients have worked hard and are near their body goals but just can’t get over that last hurdle.
If you’re looking for help, Touch MedSpa has your back! With our expertise, body sculpting in North Myrtle Beach can leave you looking and feeling your best 🥰
But how exactly can we help? Simple, by providing the most popular treatments for body sculpting in North Myrtle Beach—Emsculpt NEO, Morpheus8, & Coolsculpting. In this blog, we’ll cover each treatment, what to expect, and a supplemental service to help shed pesky pounds.
That’s a lot of ground to cover, so let’s get going!
Body sculpting solutions
As you read like 6 seconds ago, we provide the following treatments for body sculpting in North Myrtle Beach:
Each of our body sculpting services works differently. While results are superficially similar, they are all specialized to provide different benefits and support different patients. That’s why, during your consultation, your Touch provider will discuss your problem areas and desired outcomes. This information helps us determine the best approach to your body sculpting treatment.
Are you a good fit for Emsculpt NEO over Coolsculpting? We won’t know until we get to talk to you!
With that out of the way, let’s dig into what makes these body sculpting services unique.
Get fit with Emsculpt NEO
Emsculpt Neo, the most advanced body contouring procedure available in North Myrtle Beach, combines muscle building and fat reduction in one treatment.
This is the first body sculpting procedure that uses radiofrequency for fat reduction, and high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM®) to tone and strengthen muscles during one session. Truly the ideal belly fat treatment.
Our aesthetic experts use the Emsculpt Neo to treat the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, arms, and calves to reveal tighter muscles and slimmer contours!
Ideal candidates for Emsculpt Neo
The perfect candidate for Emsculpt Neo is anyone ready to jump-start their healthy lifestyle with motivation like no other! This includes patients who may be further from their goals than traditional body sculpting technology could support.
Emsculpt NEO’s unique blend of technologies allows us to use it on patients with a BMI of up to 35.
That said, we always recommend our Emsculpt Neo patients use the treatment in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle, as those who are at or near their target body weight will see the best results. Emsculpt Neo is not a weight loss procedure.
What to expect from Emsculpt Neo
Treatment works by simultaneously emitting radiofrequency (RF) and HIFEM energies. In minutes, the RF energy heats subcutaneous fat to levels where the cells are damaged and flushed from the body. This results in a PERMANENT (you read that right, PERMANENT) reduction in your number of fat cells.
On top of destroying fat buildup, the HIFEM energy contracts muscle fibers at repetitions faster than you can achieve during a normal workout. The extreme stress applied to your muscles forces them to grow new fibers.
This means you get stronger, more defined muscles 👏 just 👏 by 👏 sitting 👏 there 👏
The procedure time for Emsculpt NEO can be as little as 30 minutes, but your time in the office varies based on your individual needs and how many areas you have treated. But most sessions can be completed over a lunch break!
Because the treatment is non-invasive, you can schedule it conveniently during your lunch hour and resume your normal activities immediately. Most patients see the best results after a series of four or so treatments; each scheduled a week or 2 apart.
Results will vary slightly from patient to patient, but we often see the best results 3 months following the final treatment in your Emsculpt Neo series.
Tone & Tighten with Morpheus8
Morpheus8 is one of the best facial treatments for patients in North Myrtle Beach looking to boost confidence and ditch signs of aging.
“But what?! Morpheus8 is a facial treatment! How does it help with body sculpting?” you are likely thinking to yourself. Well, thank you so much for segueing into our next talking points perfectly!
Morpheus8 is a fractional, radiofrequency treatment that delivers exceptional skin, tissue, and collagen remodeling. This means the treatment is perfect for improving skin appearance and reducing skin irregularities on your face and neck.
But, beyond just helping with skin texture, its use of RF technology also makes it perfect for targeting and breaking down adipose tissue! It’s the true all-in-one treatment—improving skin texture and tightening, shaping, and reducing cellulite & fat simultaneously 🤯
The best part: Morpheus8 is usable on almost any body area for skin resurfacing! The most common areas treated are typically the face, neck, stomach, thighs, and buttocks.
Results are visible in only a few days but will be most noticeable roughly 3 weeks post-treatment.

- Tightens mildly sagging skin
- Smooths wrinkles

Ideal candidates for Morpheus8
The perfect candidate for Morpheus8 are patients looking to boost weight loss and fat burning with tighter, cellulite-free skin. Oh, that’s all of you?
Morpheus8 is safe for all skin types. This makes it great for boosting the results of other treatments for body sculpting in North Myrtle Beach. And it does so while minimizing sagging skin, cellulite, and uneven skin texture. So, anyone, at any point along their body transformation journey, can benefit from Morpheus8.
What to Expect from a Morpheus8 treatment
Before undergoing Morpheus8 in North Myrtle Beach, you will have a consultation with one of our medical professionals. Each patient is unique, so we want to ensure we understand every individual’s goals & before making any recommendations.
After applying a topical numbing cream, your Touch MedSpa provider gently glides the microneedling device across the treatment area. The Morpheus8 RF handpiece creates tiny “micro-wounds” in the skin, which prompts the body to undergo a natural healing process. Over the following weeks, your body will generate new collagen and elastin to help “remodel” the area and improve the texture and tone!
Depending on the size of the treatment area, sessions will last between 20-40 minutes! After treatment, we suggest keeping the area moisturized and avoiding direct sunlight. After treatment, slight swelling and redness are normal and usually go away within a few hours.
We recommend using broad-spectrum sunscreen on the treatment area. This will keep your skin healthy and create the best long-term results!
Eliminate Fat with Coolsculpting
Our patients love Coolsculpting treatments here in North Myrtle Beach. It’s a revolutionary new treatment designed to sculpt and mold your body by eliminating targeted areas of unwanted body fat. “Isn’t that just Emsculpt NEO?” we hear you asking through the ether. No! Emsculpt NEO and Coolsculpting are different!
Emsculpt NEO uses radiofrequency to burn fat and build muscle, whereas CoolSculpting targets and removes body fat by freezing fat cells. You read that right—freezing fat cells. The technique uses regulated cooling (cryolipolysis) to freeze fat cells so they may be naturally expelled from your body to reveal your ideal physique.
Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting
While this noninvasive technique has proven successful with individuals of different ages, those who will benefit the most from CoolSculpting:
- Are within 30 pounds of their goal weight
- Struggle with stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to exercise and diet efforts
- Don’t want or are not suitable candidates for more invasive procedures
- Have realistic expectations for treatment results
What to expect from CoolSculpting
During the procedure, we apply a gel pad and the CoolSculpting handpiece to the predetermined area to begin controlled cooling. The cooling power delivered by the applicator starts to attack and paralyze the fat cells. You will likely feel coolness at the time of your treatment, but this rarely causes significant discomfort.
CoolSculpting applies a controlled temperature to destroy fat cells in selected body parts for treatment. Essentially, it freezes the fat cells until they die. The cells break down in the body, which expels them through natural metabolization. Your body will NOT create new fat cells to replace the dead ones, but the remaining fat cells can get larger if you gain weight.
Since CoolSculpting treatments are noninvasive, you can get back to your day after treatment. In as little as 3 weeks, you start to notice your results. The most dramatic results will be visible 1-3 months after your treatment.

Hormone therapy for weight & wellness
Many people struggle to lose weight. Maybe you’ve noticed you just can’t quite shed those last few pounds. Maybe you’re experiencing a low mood or issues motivating yourself to go for that run or head to the gym. Or, maybe you feel like you work out all the time and are just not seeing the results you know you should be. It may be a hormone imbalance.
Schedule a consultation, and we can sit down and discuss your current goals. From there, we can do a screening and identify if you’re experiencing any major hormone imbalances. For instance, did you know a deficit of testosterone can correlate to more belly fat? You may be out of balance and not even know it! We can help.
What sets our hormone replacement therapy treatments apart at Touch MedSpa is our commitment to finding your optimal hormone levels. Each person is different, and the specific treatments, dosage, and frequency of therapy needed will differ.
