Important Things to Know Before Getting Cellulite Treatment

Are you looking for professional cellulite treatment in Melbourne? You are certainly not alone. People have long desired to minimise if not eliminate the appearance of cellulite, which affects the overwhelming majority of women at some point in their life.

For many women, cellulite can be frustrating. Whether it’s a result of adding shape to your body, stretched skin after childbirth, or simply stubborn fat that won’t go away, the condition can have a negative impact on confidence and self-esteem.

The good news is, there is a range of safe, tried and tested procedures that can provide fantastic results for minimising cellulite. However, with so many such treatments and remedies on the market, it’s important to be properly informed and know exactly what to expect before deciding to proceed.

Let’s break down exactly what cellulite is and what you can expect from your treatment in our Melbourne clinic.


What is cellulite?

Cellulite is a cosmetic condition that affects the appearance of the skin where fat deposits reside underneath the surface. Over time, these fat cells can multiply and push outward on the surface of the skin. This creates a dimpled, lumpy appearance on the surface of the skin and is particularly evident on the buttocks and thigh region.

While diet and exercise can certainly play a role in the appearance of cellulite, the science is still unclear as to what the underlying cause exactly is. Sometimes, it can be attributed to genetics, hormones, body fat percentage, age, and thickness of the skin. As the skin thins due to age, cellulite often becomes more apparent, though it is harmless.

Exercise, massage, surgery and non-invasive treatments can all have some measure of success in reducing cellulite. Up to 98% of women will experience cellulite in their lifetime, and of course, many would prefer to be rid of it. 

How do I get rid of cellulite?

There are a variety of methods to reduce or remove cellulite, depending on the severity, area affected, and other factors such as affordability.

Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne offers a state-of-the-art cellulite treatment using the award-winning ONDA Coolwaves technology. This non-surgical, non-invasive procedure uses microwaves to target and effectively destroy fat cells.

As one of the latest innovations in dermatology, ONDA is a highly targeted procedure and reduces fat deposits all over the body, firming up tissues as well as tightening and contouring the skin.

The efficient ONDA technology is the result of thorough and groundbreaking research, tested and used by doctors and physicians across Harley Street, London – the mecca of medical aesthetics clinics.

ONDA is a tested and proven method of melting stubborn fat from problem areas of the body without the need for surgery. Monthly sessions can produce fantastic results. The treatment can be used either as an alternative to or in conjunction with traditional therapies such as CoolSculpting and liposuction, in order to achieve a smoother and more even tone.

Depending on the desired outcome, ONDA Coolwaves can target deep or shallow indications, allowing the treatment to be customised to your body. 

Is cellulite treatment surgery safe?

Many people are apprehensive about the term microwaves. However, unlike the microwave oven in your kitchen, ONDA Coolwaves are highly targeted, emitted with precision control from the ONDA handpiece. For even further control and safety, the smart handpiece only functions when in contact with the skin. No surrounding tissue is harmed and no organs or lower skin layers are affected by the microwaves, making ONDA an extremely safe option. The regenerating, toning and non-invasive procedure has minimal side effects. 

With Coolwaves, generally only around 20% of the energy reaches the derma as the heat produced is counterbalanced by the smart handpiece cooling system, while 80% of the energy penetrates the fat of the targeted area with a laser focus. Using electromagnetic fields as guidance, energy is not dispersed into the tissue and it is not overheated, resulting in maximum patient comfort throughout the procedure.

As a popular non-surgical cellulite treatment in Melbourne, patients are released immediately after the procedure and experience minimum downtime. Most are even able to return to work afterwards.

What type of results can I expect?

Coolwaves cause the collagen fibers in the dermis to shrink immediately and stimulate the development of new collagen, making the tissue more compact and toned.

The non-surgical cellulite treatments available at our Melbourne clinic can be used anywhere on the body, but often the best outcome is achieved on upper arms, stomachs, and calves.

Results are swift and often noticeable after just a few treatments. As the fat cells are permanently eliminated, the results can be very long-lasting, especially when combined with regular exercise and a healthy, balanced diet.
