Italian laser manufacturer DEKA has launched a new device called the ONDA, which is designed to treat fat adiposities, cellulite and skin laxity.
The company claims the device includes a handpiece delivery system that controls the microwave emission to the subdermal layers, which is suitable for any skin type.
The devices uses patented technology, known as Coolwaves, which the company state are ‘special microwaves that target fat cells to reduce localised fat deposits’.
According to DEKA, there are no side effects and there have so far not been any reported irritations.
Dr Paolo Bonan, European society for lasers and energy-based devices key education officer and head of laser cutaneous cosmetic and plastic surgery unit at the Villa Donatello Clinic in Italy, said, “DEKA’s unceasing search for new sources and applications has led to the invention of a completely non-invasive system, which specifically destroys the lipocyte membrane, just as the laser did. In very few sessions, the Coolwaves in the ONDA system are extremely effective in reducing the localised accumulations of fat in areas like the abdomen, back, trochanter and lower limbs.”
He continued, “This technology makes it possible to treat cellulite even in the most advanced stages and skin laxity.”
