By: Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology


Even the most dedicated people who work out daily and count their calories can still fail to achieve that holy grail of ripped-looking six-pack abs. Does that mean that lean, sculpted washboard abs are impossible? No, especially if you know about the cutting-edge aesthetic treatment helping more women and men achieve that seemingly impossible goal. 

At Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology, our experienced team is happy to help both women and men of all ages in San Francisco, CA and the Bay Area get a more sculpted and toned look, and yes, even washboard abs, using one of the latest, most effective aesthetic treatments – EMSCULPT NEO

We’re going to tell you why it’s so hard to get six-pack abs, what EMSCULPT NEO is, and why it’s one of the fastest and most effective ways to help you get those ripped abs you want. 

Why is getting six-pack abs so hard? 

You can be at a healthy weight, do daily workouts, and never touch a carb, and still not have six-pack abs. Why? There are several reasons why getting washboard abs is so hard:  

  • Genetics can affect how much fat your body burns and where it is distributed 
  • As we get older, especially after 40, burning fat is harder and more fat is deposited around the midsection 
  • An average workout only gets about 40% efficiency from your muscles 
  • Avoiding sugars and carbohydrates with a restrictive diet is extremely difficult for the average person 

With all these factors working against your six-pack abs, how do you get that ripped and toned look? You use the technological shortcut that is the secret weapon of fitness gurus and Instagram models around the world – EMSCULPT NEO. 


EMSCULPT NEO is a noninvasive and nonsurgical aesthetic treatment that pairs two cutting-edge technologies, HIFEM+ (high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy) and RF (radiofrequency) energy, to sculpt the body by burning fat and building and toning muscle. It can be used on different areas of the body:  

  • Abs 
  • Buttocks 
  • Arms 
  • calves 

At Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology in San Francisco, CA, our team uses these focused energies directed on the targeted area, in this case, the abs, with an applicator that sits on top of your skin and is held in place with a belt. You just lay comfortably on the table while EMSCULPT does the work, with an average session lasting about 30 minutes. 

How does EMSCULPT NEO create ripped six-pack abs? 

EMSCLUPT can be thought of as a super-charged workout that allows your muscles to achieve 100% efficiency by inducing supramaximal contractions for an average 25% increase in muscle growth. Think of it like doing 1,000 sit-ups or crunches in 30 minutes. But unlike normal sit-ups and crunches, an EMSCULPT treatment activates your entire abdominal region, including:  

  • Transverse abdominis – The deepest layer of muscle that stabilizes your torso 
  • Rectus abdominis – This is the target area that creates the bumps of your six-pack abs along your ribs and pelvic bone 
  • External obliques – Are on each side of the rectus abdominis 
  • Internal obliques – Pair with your external obliques 

The supramaximal contractions EMSCLUPT NEO creates burns the fat, hiding your abs while building and toning more muscle than you can with a normal workout. Patients can often see results after only one session, and after the recommended four sessions spaced 7 – 10 days apart, many are achieving that mythical ripped six-pack look.
