The Onda device from Deka revolutionises body shaping with smart Coolwaves™ technology.
Onda (Italian for ‘wave’), is a new device made by Deka in Italy which harnesses smart Coolwaves™ technology for body contouring applications for the reduction of cellulite, fat and skin laxity. Onda is the first device to utilise microwave frequencies that target deeper fat layers while keeping the skin cool to avoid thermal damage to the superficial skin layers during the microwave transmission. It is for this reason Deka have coined the pioneering technology Coolwaves™.
This powerful but non-invasive treatment regenerates, remodels and reduces problem areas by targeting cellulite, skin laxity and localised fat pockets in one simple and comfortable treatment. Until now many devices have promised lots yet delivered very little, but then the Onda is a game-changer, results are impressive and long-lasting.
What is Microwave Technology?
Microwaves are part of the electromagnetic spectrum (frequency range: 1-300GHz) and are common in many areas of everyday life, from at home to the medical field. The utilisation of this wavelength has been proven to be safe and effective in interacting with biological molecules and generates localised, controlled heat absorbed by selected biological targets, like water and fat, through a process called “dielectric heating”.
How Does Microwave Technology Work?
The utilisation of microwaves at 2.45GHz, is a frequency that is preferentially absorbed by adipose cells to tackle localised fat deposits, destroy fat cells and immediate shrinkage and stimulation of the collagen fibres for dramatic skin tightening in a safe, effective and non-invasive way. The Onda bypasses the uppermost layers of skin tissue, helping deliver more energy and heat directly to where it is needed: the subcutaneous fat cells by causing the cells to oscillate and heat up, all while keeping your client’s skin cool and comfortable.
The epidermis and the dermis of the skin contain a high percentage of water but little fat. Therefore, when the Coolwaves™ energy penetrates the body particularly the torso, abdomen and thighs the process of “dielectric heating” is stimulated. It causes apoptosis of adipose cells helping to eliminate the fat cell, while also stimulating cellular metabolic processes and collagen production. The unique design of Onda’s smart Coolwaves™ handpieces mean that these microwaves are emitted precisely and accurately, in order to control the depth of treatment to ensure safe and more effective solutions. As a result, the Coolwaves™ energy reaches deeper layers of subcutaneous fat, the targeted layer is heated far more rapidly than the skin (about 80% of the thermal effect). This means a lower risk of excessive heating and reduced discomfort to superficial skin layers during the treatment of cellulite to tackle localised fat deposits, destroying fat cells and Immediate shrinkage and stimulation of the collagen fibres for dramatic skin tightening
What are the Indications?
Cellulite: REGENERATES: Onda’s shallow handpiece is able to effectively target the connective septa between the adipose globules in the more advanced stages of cellulite, which is visible as the typical ‘orange peel’ effect. It can break this up and dispose of via the body’s metabolic processes, while at the same time ensuring skin laxity is minimised for optimal cellulite reduction.
Skin tightening: REMODELS: Onda’s Coolwaves™ induce immediate shrinkage of the collagen fibres within the dermis and boost the production of new collagen. Thereby helping to firm and tone the tissue within the skin’s deeper and more superficial layers.
Localised fat deposits: REDUCES: With a smart handpiece which allows Coolwaves™ to penetrate deeply, Onda is able to disrupt the membranes of the subcutaneous fat cells. The lysate is then drained off and eliminated by the body’s natural metabolic processes (macrophage lipolysis). The integrated cooling system of the handpieces ensures that the skin remains cool for maximum patient comfort.
