As the longest-practicing, female physician board certified in obstetrics and gynecology in Prescott, Dr. Melinda Martin has extensive knowledge of health-care issues important to the women of Yavapai County.
Dr. Martin and her team offer a variety of health services to women in Prescott, Prescott Valley, Chino Valley and throughout Yavapai County. With the philosophy of providing excellence in health care in a warm and caring environment created by women, for women, they provide prenatal care, family planning, hormone replacement therapy, cancer screening, and in-office ultrasound, among other services meant to help women take a proactive approach to healthy living at every stage of their lives.
Realizing that many women face changes in their bodies after childbirth and in aging, Dr. Martin has added the latest in laser technology to help women overcome these changes. The MonaLisa Touch is a leading edge treatment to resolve gynecologic health issues often caused by menopause. The MonaLisa Touch laser is designed to help postmenopausal women as well as breast cancer survivors.
Postmenopausal women may experience gynecologic health changes when estrogen levels decline. In addition, there are approximately 250,000 breast cancer diagnoses per year, and the disease has a survival rate of nearly 90 percent at five years. That adds up to a large portion of our population likely suffering in silence from a wide array of gynecologic health concerns, many of which can greatly impact a woman’s quality of life.
Performed in an office environment without the need for anesthesia and with virtually no pain or side effects, the MonaLisa Touch delivers fractional CO2 laser energy to the vaginal wall tissue so cells make more collagen. Patients undergo three treatments spaced six weeks apart, and each treatment time is less than five minutes.
“Recent studies show that patients treated with the MonaLisa Touch laser showed highly statistically significant improvement in the vaginal tissue after the first treatment,” Dr. Martin said. “Patients in the studies experienced minimal-to-no side effects or adverse reactions and showed an escalation of progress with each subsequent treatment. With these kinds of outcomes, the MonaLisa Touch is a game-changing procedure for my postmenopausal patients. It is also effective in treating mild urinary incontinence.”
For women and men of all ages with trouble spots that seem resistant to diet and exercise, SculpSure noninvasive laser body contouring may be the answer. SculpSure laser targets and heats fat cells under the skin without affecting the skin’s surface. The damaged fat cells are removed naturally from the body. Each treatment area is 25 minutes, and you can resume daily activities immediately. Results can be seen as early as six weeks with optimal results typically seen at 12 weeks.
Dr. Melinda Martin, Brandie Clark, NP-C and Andrea Velandia, PA-C, are available to assist you with your obstetric and gynecological needs as well as consultations for the MonaLisa Touch and the SculpSure body contouring laser.
