What is it?
The ONDA body slimming and sculpting device features Coolwaves®, a patented microwaves cutting-edge technology that is developed in Italy. It induces a non-invasive regenerating and toning action to achieve a 3-in-1 effect of targeting fat deposits, cellulite as well as skin laxity.
The ONDA Coolwaves® are able to penetrate deep and targeted, effectively destroying localized fat pockets deep beneath the skin anywhere on the body including stubborn areas like the abdomen, thighs, hips, arms and even double chin. The result is that of fat elimination, cellulite reduction and skin tightening to achieve an overall body contouring effect.
The ONDA machine comes with one-of-its-kind cooling handpieces that ensures heat is well penetrated to deeper layers of the skin without compromising on treatment effects yet avoiding risks of potential burns on the skin surface. Therefore, this provides maximum comfort and relaxation throughout the whole treatment process.

Why choose ONDA Coolwaves over other body slimming modalities?
The ONDA Coolwaves® generates microwaves at 2.45 GHz that are selectively absorbed by fat cells, targeting them for destruction without damaging nearby skin. This is much safer compared to other radiofrequency-based slimming treatments where the energy is dispersed much more superficially posing higher risk of skin burns.
The ONDA Coolwaves® is a very comfortable, warm treatment that feels just like a hot stone massage. With its unique “deep” and “shallow” handpieces that caters to various depths for perfect modulation and adaptation for the patient, the treatment type and the area to be treated. As compared to cryolipolysis fat freezing treatments which often cause pain, numbness, skin colour changes and other unwanted side effects.
Most importantly, the ONDA Coolwaves® not only targets fat destruction, it is also able to simultaneously stimulate connective tissue production to diminish appearance of cellulite as well as trigger collagen fibres contraction for added skin tightening effect.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long will the effect last?
The effect from 1 session of ONDA treatment can be felt up to 3 weeks.
What is the treatment interval?
For fat reduction, we recommend repeating treatments on a 3-weekly basis.
For cellulite reduction or skin tightening, we recommend repeating treatments on a 2-weekly basis.
How soon will I see the effect?
The biophysiological changes at the cellular level begin almost instantly following each treatment session. However, to notice an obvious difference, it usually takes at least 3 to 4 treatments to start with. There are also instances where one already sees significant improvement with just 2 or 3 treatments.
How many sessions are required?
We recommended at least 4 to 6 treatment sessions per area for significant difference in slimming, cellulite reduction or skin tightening.
For individuals with thicker fat tissues, stubborn long-standing cellulite or severe skin laxity, more treatment sessions are needed for visible results.
What to expect during treatment?
The treatment is extremely comfortable and feels cold on the skin surface and low-heat hot stone massage sensation in the deeper layers. The treatment duration per area is about 10 minutes.
Mild redness of the skin can often be seen at the end of treatment and this will spontaneously resolve over the next few hours.
Is there any downtime?
No, there is usually no downtime for this treatment.
Very rarely however, there may be mild swelling and soreness over the treated areas and this may take few days to weeks to completely resolve.
Are the results permanent?
Yes, the results are long-lasting as the fat tissues are permanently destroyed and eliminated by the body’s immune system.
However, it is important to understand that new fat deposits can form and skin laxity may worsen as one continues to age. The long-term goal should be that of incorporating a healthy low fat, low sugar diet with a regular exercise regime in order to keep fit and stay in shape.
What is the post-treatment care?
- Drink lots of water to hydrate the body tissues adequately
- Gentle massage of treated areas twice a day for 5 -10 minutes
- Apply cold compress to areas of redness, soreness or swelling, if any
- Avoid taking alcohol on the day of treatment
What is the estimated price per session?
Depending on the severity of the condition and number of areas being treated, the price of Onda Coolwaves starts from $400 per session.
