Onda Body Contouring

onda-logo1Onda is a revolutionary body contouring system with a triple effect in one procedure, which uses CoolwavesTM to selectively target fat cells and reduce them, gets rid of cellulite, and tightens skin in a safe, effective and non-invasive way. Onda uses a selective micro-wave frequency to pass safely through the skin layers to directly target fat cells using the ‘deep’ handpiece. Whereas the ‘shallow’ handpiece targets cellulite reduction and skin tightening. Combined with an integrated skin cooling system, the Onda treatment is comfortable and pain-free.

What is the preparation for Onda Body Contouring?

  • You will need to stop using moisturiser on the areas to be treated at least one week before the Onda session.
  • You will need to drink 2 litres of water per day – the day before, the day of the treatment, and the day after.
  • Avoid using anti-inflammatory drugs with steroids one week before the treatment, and also one week after.
  • Shave any dense hair on the area to be treated to improve contact of the handpiece on the skin.

How is Onda Body Contouring performed?

A series of photographs will be taken before and after the session, to record the effectiveness of the treatment. The skin surface will be prepared and marked out into 15 x 15cm areas. With localised fat, we will take a measure of the skinfold. A thin film of oil will be applied to the area to allow the handpiece to glide easily. Our therapist will move the handpiece in a continuous action over the skin, with each 15 x 15cm area taking approximately 10 minutes to treat. We can treat up to eight 15 x 15cm areas in a session. The area/s will then be gently massaged immediately after the treatment for 1-2 minutes to encourage natural drainage of destroyed fat cells away from the body tissue through the lymphatic system. You should avoid direct exposure to the sun for 2 days.

machine1When can I expect results from Onda Body Contouring?

You can expect to see some results after the first session, but typically 2-4 sessions are necessary for effective treatment of fat cells, whereas results on cellulite and skin tightening may be evident after 2 sessions.

The minimum interval between Onda sessions is 3 weeks for cellulite and skin tightening, and 4 weeks for fat treatment.

What are the potential side effects?

Mild side effects may include itching, numbness, tenderness, redness, swelling on the treatment area are usually short-lived and resolve within a few days of treatment.

If the skin is slightly pink or red following treatment, you should avoid having hot showers/baths until the pinkness disappears.
