Reduce Stubborn Fat with CoolSculpting and Optimize Your Body at Serenity Rejuvenation Center, a top Seattle CoolSculpting practice!


CoolSculpting body contouring is now FDA-cleared for several body areas. This groundbreaking fat reducing treatment has no downtime, allowing patients to resume their normal activities immediately following their CoolSculpting in Bellevue.


What Is CoolSculpting?

What Is CoolSculpting?

It’s called stubborn fat for a reason; no matter how much you diet and exercise, it is virtually impossible to target annoying problem areas, such as around the arms, muffin tops, love handles, and lower belly pooches. Now there is a safe, noninvasive fat reduction procedure — CoolSculpting. Only CoolSculpting specifically targets fat cells, attacking them through an effective, nonsurgical fat freezing procedure that even the most dedicated exercise and diet program cannot resolve.

How CoolSculpting Works

Surgical and laser procedures that reduce fat can also destroy other tissues and lead to a long and painful recovery period. Fortunately, CoolSculpting fat reduction doesn’t burn, shatter or extract any cells. Developed by Harvard scientists, this unique, FDA-cleared and patented procedure uses a targeted cooling process that reduces the fat cells below the surface of the skin, literally freezing them. Body sculpting with CoolSculpting is very precise and freezes only fat cells. Once crystallized, the fat cells are naturally shed by your body.


While men and women store fat in different areas of their body, both can be candidates for this groundbreaking fat reduction treatment. Generally speaking, the best candidates for a CoolSculpting treatment would be within 30 lbs. or 13.6 kg. of their ideal weight. Excess areas of fat that can be treated would include back of the arms, inner thighs, flanks, bra fat, neck, male breasts, and abdomen. During our complimentary consultation, we will determine whether we feel you are a weight loss, hormone replacement or CoolSculpting candidate, or a hybrid of the above. People who are interested in losing weight may choose to start with our weight loss program and then proceed with CoolSculpting when they reach their ideal body weight. People who are in relatively good shape with stubborn pockets of fat usually start with CoolSculpting. Ideal candidates also have realistic expectations. Look at before and after photos to gain a better understanding of your potential results.


During your first visit to our center for CoolSculpting, you will meet with a staff member and Dr. Stephen O’Connell for a one-on-one consultation. They will take the time to discuss a holistic approach to reshaping your body. Together, you’ll discuss problem areas where you’d like to freeze fat away. Once you’ve put together a treatment plan for achieving your goals, your next step is to begin your treatments.


Scheduling your treatment is easy, and multiple areas can be treated on the same day or scheduled for different days. During the procedure, you can relax — read a book, catch up on a TV show, or even take a nap! Applicators will be secured to your treatment area and will deliver controlled cooling to the targeted fatty zones.

After Your Seattle CoolSculpting Treatment

Post-procedure manual massage at our clinic will increase treatment efficacy. Research has shown that post-treatment ultrasound evaluation measurements demonstrate greater fat layer reduction with massage vs without it.

The Results of CoolSculpting Treatment

After having performed CoolSculpting on hundreds of patients over the last several years, we feel that the clinical results can be explained by following a bell-shaped curve analogy, with a small percentage of people noticing results at the 4-week mark, with an average seeing results at 8 weeks, and another small percentage seeing results at the 12-week mark.

Watch some of our videos to see the stories of successes with CoolSculpting – this remarkable system has changed body sculpting technology forever.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

A “before” image will be taken on the day of the fat-freezing treatment. We will schedule a follow-up appointment with you and assess the results at that time. Then we can decide if we achieved your body sculpting goals or whether to should consider another treatment, as you may have larger quantities of fat in several body areas.

CoolSculpting Side Effects and Risks

CoolSculpting is one of the safest procedures performed by Dr. O’Connell and the Serenity Rejuvenation Staff. It is completely noninvasive. However, one can anticipate any of the following potential side effects the first few days and weeks after treatment:

  • Redness, bruising, and swelling
  • Tenderness, cramping, and aching
  • Itching, sensitivity, tingling, and numbness (numbness can persist up to several weeks)

Zero-Pain Applicators


We are very excited to say that, with the latest generation of CoolSculpting applicators that we are using, there have been zero reported cases of delayed-onset pain. Even historically, delayed-onset pain was a rare phenomenon that occurred approximately 5 to 7 days after treatment. It was characterized by hypersensitivity of the sensory nerves in the area that was treated. However, Dr. O’Connell had an effective pain management protocol in these rare occurrences.

Cost of CoolSculpting in Bellevue

The cost of CoolSculpting at our Bellevue clinic is extremely competitive. Different areas of the body require a different number of applications, as someone larger might require more than a smaller person. It is the number of applicators that determine CoolSculpting cost. If you’d like a price estimate tailored to your body-sculpting goals, we’d love to talk with you. Call Serenity Rejuvenation Center for a complimentary consultation.

Dr. O’Connell and staff are awesome! Easy to schedule appointments and don’t have to worry about parking. Had 5 sessions of laser hair removal with Amanda. She is very thorough and always made sure I’m comfortable during the treatments. I have about 90% reduction now and ready to start other areas. I also had picosure focus laser facial and Coolsculpting done in the beginning of last summer. Dr. O’Connell was very detailed with treating my acne scarring and freckles. Lately, I started to notice the collagen stimulation part, which was explained by Dr. O’Connell that collagen can take up to 5 months to see textural improvement. As for Coolsculpting, my lower tummy pooch is now GONE! Strongly recommend this clinic.
