NMAC Offering Smoking Cessation Program

November 2, 2015

Smokers in Bermuda have now been provided with a “cost-effective, quick, supportive and highly successful avenue” to quit smoking, with the Anne Penman Laser Smoking Cessation program available at Northshore Medical and Aesthetics Center [NMAC].

Under the direction of Anne Penman, Dr. Kyjuan Brown, NMAC Medical Director, and Alexander Dill, Certified Laser Therapist underwent extensive training in New York, the Laser Smoking Cessation Program helps to quit cigarettes, cigars, and smokeless tobacco products and consists of three sessions, including Laser Therapy, Guidance, and Continual Support and Motivation.

A spokesperson said, “Smoking is attributed to numerous health conditions including Lung Cancer and Cardiovascular Disease; it also adversely affects other medical conditions. There are also the cosmetic and socials ills of smoking including the yellowing of teeth, odors and effects of second hand smoke on non-smokers.

“Cigarettes contain nicotine, which is highly addictive substance found naturally in tobacco. Nicotine travels quickly to the brain when inhaled causing a feeling of relaxation and/or stress relief. Nicotine can also elevate your mood and heart rate; however this feeling is only temporary and once the body rids itself of the drug one will to crave another cigarette.

“Like any negative habit, the benefits of quitting far outweigh the risks yet the addiction and false comfort provided makes it difficult to do so. Many cigarette smokers who want to quit often cite the inability to start the process of quitting, cost of a smoking cessation program and fear of the withdrawal symptoms as the main reason or excuses to not making this life-saving decision.”

Mr. Dill said, “I quit smoking the hard way by doing it on my own. I smoked for two years but after feeling my health deteriorating I decided to stop. I had asthma and my breathing was becoming more difficult. Many of our patients were asking us how they could become smoke free, stress free and lose weight, they were also looking for alternative solutions to their health issues.

“After researching the various programs available we discovered the Anne Penman Laser Therapy method and decided that it would be a great addition to our practice because of its cost, high success rate among other factors.”

“I strongly encourage any smoker to quit now through any avenue that works best for them,” added Dr. Brown.

“However I do highly recommend the Anne Penman Program not because I offer the service but because of the success rates and continual support provided which is essential in combating any addiction. It is my pleasure to announce that Northshore Medical Center has become an Anne Penman Laser Therapy Center.”
