Top Recommendations for Aging Flawlessly in 2019

To get the latest on cosmetic beauty trends, Bellevue Lifestyle sat down with Dr. Stephen O’Connell, of Serenity Rejuvenation Center, Bellevue’s top medspa for anti-aging treatments. Dr. O’Connell is board-certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation. His practice offers a wide range of treatments such as body sculpting, hormone therapy, weight loss and wellness treatments to ward off the signs of aging. They also offer enhancement treatments using dermal fillers, BOTOX, skin rejuvenation procedures, laser hair removal or nonsurgical body sculpting.

What do you recommend for reducing the signs of aging and rejuvenate the skin to improve one’s appearance and confidence?

Serenity Rejuvenation uses a state-of-the-art laser called PicoSure that works to reverse the signs of aging due to sun damage, acne scarring, stretch marks and pigmentation. PicoSure uses some of the old principles of laser technology but has no downtime, little pain and can be used on any skin type or color.  

Can we really say goodbye to those embarrassing days of underarm sweat?
We offer miraDRY, a noninvasive, FDA-approved treatment for treating conditions of underarm sweat. Patients have had a 100 percent success rate and as an added bonus, it also can decrease hair in the treated area by up to 70 percent.  

What is hormone replacement therapy, and why is it important?
With aging comes a decline in hormones associated with good health and vitality. Serenity Rejuvenation Center recognizes the relationship of good hormone balance to good health. To assist patients with hormone imbalances, a detailed and careful analysis is done before a course of action can be started to help each patient achieve their best quality of life.
