Body positivity with ONDA Coolwaves

Having a positive relationship with your body image should be celebrated. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, and every person has the right to love their body. Sometimes our relationship with our body includes transforming it. This may involve developing healthier habits, living an active lifestyle or practising a more mindful approach to our diet. People are inspired by an array of factors that may motivate the change. Sometimes it is for health reasons, while other times it may be for aesthetic and confidence-boosting reasons. Whatever the reason and method behind your personal journey to body positivity, the MacMurray Centre is here to support you.

If stubborn pockets of fat, cellulite or skin laxity are problems for you, we now offer a treatment that will target these areas…..ONDA Coolwaves an effective, non-invasive body contouring technology.

What is ONDA with Coolwaves?

ONDA Coolwaves is a non-surgical body contouring system. Prior to the technology that drives ONDA Coolwaves, body shaping and contouring procedures were invasive, with substantial recovery time and potential side effects and complications. Many of the options available involve surgery; liposuction being the one most commonly known. These procedures carry a host of risks and are costly. ONDA Coolwaves is the pinnacle of body contouring technology, providing a 3 in 1 effect with visible and long-lasting results in reducing body fat, cellulite, and regenerating skin laxity.

ONDA Coolwaves is on the frontier of the dermatology and medical industry due to its ability to reduce localised adiposities, also known as fat, over the body. When it comes to weight loss many people have areas that hold “stubborn fat”. With diet and exercise there is no way to specifically target these stubborn areas, which are most commonly found around the abdomen, hips, thighs and submental area. The benefit of ONDA Coolwaves is that we can target these areas directly; dissolving fat, tightening skin, contouring and firming tissue.

Prior to ONDA Coolwaves, cryolipolysis or radiofrequency was used to tighten and tone skin. ONDA Coolwaves replaces this antiquated technology, and provides a viable alternative to more invasive procedures such as liposuction.

How does ONDA Coolwaves work? How does it compare to older technologies?

Onda Coolwaves works by using deep targeting microwaves that do not damage nearby skin. The secret lies in the 2.45 GHz waves that are partially absorbed by adipose (fat) cells. In contrast, older technology such as radiofrequency is less targeted, with much of the energy being dispensed superficially into the dermis and epidermis (the layers of skin above where fat is stored). By using the Coolwaves technology to counterbalance the heat, only 20% of the energy produced by ONDA reaches the skin layers, while the remaining 80% penetrates the fat, reaching even the deep layers of fat underneath the skin.

Targeting stubborn areas with localised fat reduction

One of the biggest challenges when changing body composition are the stubborn areas of fat that just don’t seem to go away. If you are on a weight loss journey, often the areas that you wish to reduce are the last areas to do so. ONDA Coolwaves gives you control to target your problem areas specifically; to sculpt and contour your body’s silhouette as you wish.

One of the huge benefits of the ONDA Coolwaves system is that it is safe to use on any part of the body. While there are common stubborn areas, usually thighs, lower abdomen and lower back, we are all unique in our body’s overall fat distribution. Because of this, having a safe and effective tool that can be tailored to target exactly where you are looking to tone and contour is a game-changer.

When we burn fat, the process of fat oxidation “empties” out the cell that contains the fat. The fat container, known as the cell membrane, is left behind. This means it is easier to “refill” this membrane to put weight back on, ultimately making rebounding back to your previous weight easier. ONDA Coolwaves doesn’t just get rid of the fat within the cell, it actually demolishes these cell membranes along with dissolving the fat within them, resulting in longer-lasting results.

Is ONDA Coolwaves effective in reducing the appearance of cellulite?

Cellulite sometimes referred to as “orange peel”, is a very common skin condition in which the skin has an appearance of being lumpy or dimpled. It is completely harmless, and while both genders are susceptible to it, it is more prevalent in women. It is caused by the fat cells pushing up against the skin above them and becoming visible through the connective tissue. This lattice of connective tissue is the reason for this bumped appearance. Cellulite is very dependent on individual genetics as it is the by-product of the thinness of your skin and the elasticity of your connective tissue. This means that it doesn’t only affect overweight people.

ONDA Coolwaves is effective in reducing the appearance of cellulite. Firstly, as stated earlier, ONDA Coolwaves microwave technology reduces and demolishes fat cells. It is these cells that are responsible for pushing up against the skin and through the connective tissue. By reducing these fat cells, the visibility of cellulite decreases alongside it.

Secondly, ONDA Coolwaves not only dissolves fat but also stimulates connective tissue. The connective tissues pull closer together, tightening the space that allows the fat cells to show thus diminishing the appearance of the cellulite.

Lastly, ONDA Coolwaves has a regenerative effect on the dermis or skin layer. Collagen is responsible for the elasticity and tightness of our skin. ONDA Coolwaves causes the collagen fibres in the skin to contract, signalling the body to produce new collagen. This results in the skin tightening and elasticity being restored, meaning that the fat that is showing through the connective tissue is smoothed out.

How many treatments do I need to see results from ONDA Coolwaves?

While results may vary from person to person, often there is a notable difference in a single ONDA Coolwaves treatment session. 2 or 3 sessions is the most common choice, but some people may opt for more depending on their desired results.

Because ONDA Coolwaves doesn’t only dissolve the fat but also breaks down the cell membrane, the results are longer-lasting. When you lose weight, the cell membranes are left behind and these can release hormones that signal hunger. By no longer having these cell membranes, you may be better set up to not crave additional food and rebound from your weight loss.

ONDA Coolwaves is completely noninvasive. While there may be mild side effects such as itching, numbness, redness or tenderness, these symptoms pass really quickly. These side effects pale in comparison to more intrusive measures such as liposuction, which can have a significant recovery time associated with it.
