Think of the area underneath your skin as having rooms (fat lobules) cellulite occurs when these are filled with excess fat and water, when the room fills up the roof pushes up but where the walls (septa) are attached to the ceiling the roof stays lower and it creates a bumpy appearance.
ONDA effects cellulite in 2 ways:
Through a direct action on the collagen septa, in particular in the upper part towards the dermis, nearby the anchor points. As the septa get softened by the Coolwaves™, they are regenerated with new and more elastic fibres of collagen.
Through reducing the volume of fat cells. With the reduction in fat volume, there is less outward pressure on the skin, leading to an improved microcirculation, better lymphatic drainage and therefore less water retention.
The microwaves emitted by Onda® emission are highly controlled. They are not free-range, meaning they come in & out of the specially designed, patent-pending hand piece. This allows us to have a very precise depth of action, and to avoid any random, uncontrolled transmission in the body. No organs or tissues other than the target fat and lower skin layers are touched by the microwaves. This makes Onda® a very safe system.
Moreover, the handpieces work only when they are in contact with the skin. Therefore, if the handpiece is not in full contact, it will stop emitting, ensuring complete control of the energy delivery.
Compared to Radiofrequency devices, Onda® is able to deliver the majority of the Coolwaves™ energy through the skin into the layer where the fat cells are located. Since this energy device delivers a more effective treatment, fewer treatment sessions are needed to see results.
The results seen with radiofrequency devices are typically transient (not long-lasting). With Onda®, as we are specifically destroying a proportion of the fat cells, results tend to be much longer lasting and in some cases may be permanent.
Mild side effects including itching, numbness, hardness, warmth, tenderness, redness and swelling. Less commonly, it is possible to develop mild bruising, nodules or blisters at the treatment area, which usually resolve within a few days from the treatment. Studies have shown no significant alteration to the circulating lipid levels in the blood.

It is for people who just can’t get rid of that pocket of fat even though they eat great and exercise heaps. Or people who have lax skin from ageing or previous weight loss or who have cellulite even though they are not overweight.
It can however assist in fat reduction if you are following a diet and exercise regime for weight loss.
We recommend that you DO NOT moisturise the area for 48 hours before your treatment and afterwards drink plenty of water and only do light exercise like walking
How much does it cost?
Take a look at the price list below.
Our 3 visit MEMBERSHIP starter pack is the same as buy 2 get 1 free. It is much cheaper to do it this way as SINGLE SESSIONS are highly discouraged because you will not see results without a minimum of 3 sessions.
You can buy these memberships online before making your 1st appointment (if you do it that way you will not be required to leave a booking deposit as the appointment is already paid for).
Just click the link below to go to FRESHA and buy your membership for the area you want to treat.
Onda® is the first device of its kind to utilise an energy source that can simultaneously target fat, cellulite and lax skin. ONDA Coolwaves delivers heat to the ideal depth to simultaneously break down the fibrous tissue that causes cellulite and produce irreversible damage to the fat cells. Over the next 6-12 weeks the damaged fat cells are gradually removed and taken away via the lymphatic system. New collagen is formed to tighten lax skin and improve cellulite.
