February every year we raise awareness for the Global Heart Health Month.
We teach you every year that the very best things you can do for your heart are things like diet, exercise, weight management, and avoiding smoking. At NMAC, we encourage our patients to try regular exercise by walking, jogging, biking, swimming, or working up a sweat on the court or in the gym. Your heart will thank you for it.
Dr. Cindy Morris, visiting pain specialist at NorthShore Medical says “It’s Time To Love yourself!”
There is no room for pain during Valentine’s Day, only pleasure! However, while many celebrate Valentine’s Day with love, there are many still in physical pain. 2021, in honor of Valentine’s Day, we are going to focus on loving ourselves first while also recognizing when our loved ones are in pain.
Vampire Facial A vampire facial or PRP (platelet-rich-plasma) treatment is a procedure that aims to use a patient’s blood to trick the body into healing and repair. The blood is extracted and then undergoes a spinning process to separate the plasma, which is injected back by puncturing the skin using a micro-needle.
Kyjuan Brown, who runs the Northshore Medical & Aesthetics Centre, in Pembroke, confirmed that many of his patients were opposed to taking the vaccine...“You have to weigh risk against reward. That’s why I got the vaccine and so did all my colleagues – because the reward far outweighs any risk.” Dr Brown pointed out that the island had suffered 12 deaths from 684 recorded cases of the virus – a fatality rate of two per cent. He compared that figure to just a handful of fatalities globally that have resulted from millions of people taking the vaccine.
COVID-19 took the world by storm and healthcare providers had to act fast to help control the spread. NMAC has always been forward-thinking in Bermuda’s healthcare and staying ahead learning health advancements worldwide as well as ensuring our staff are focused on continued education so we can better serve our clients and stay prepared for these changing times. Even with this Covid-19 pandemic, Dr Kyjuan Brown and team ensured we had our Medical PPE and procedures in place to continue to serve our patients in a safe environment, including optimizing virtual and concierge medical visits with our fleet of Doctors for those patients who prefer to remain at home.

Have you seen more acne on your nose, cheek and chin areas in recent months? It may be due to a new phenomena aestheticians are calling ‘maskne’.
Since the pandemic, Aesthetician Cherrece Salmon-Shirley from Northshore Medical and Aesthetic Center, admits she’s seen a growing number of breakouts in areas covered by clients’ masks. As the weather becomes hot, these face masks grow moist and damp, leading to a build-up of sweat, oil and bacteria on the skin.
