New Skin Spa Opening At MaryEllen Locher Breast Center

Friday, March 14, 2014
Lyft, a Skin Spa, is opening in the MaryEllen Locher Breast Center at Memorial Hospital on March 17. Lyft offers individualized skin care treatments to help women of every age feel and look their best. As the body’s first line of defense against sunlight, chemicals, and infectious germs, the skin is also one of the areas of the body most commonly affected by treatments for cancer. The good news is that skin treatments are available to help patients protect and take care of their skin during and after treatments.

Rebecca Benedict, master aesthetician, and founder of Lyft, says “Everyone wants and deserves to look their best at any age.  Whether it’s making it through the teen years or preserving the youthful look in retirement.”

Benedict is one of the first in the United States to perform Oxygen Deep Infusion with micro needling. Oxygen Deep Infusion with micro needling is an innovated, age-defying treatment that infuses the skin with oxygen and advanced active ingredients that correct the signs of aging and imperfections, caused by scars and acne. Deep product penetration and infused oxygen work well below the surface of the skin to heal and repair the deepest damage at its source. Benedict decided it was time to be able to share her experience in a way that could be affordable and beneficial to anyone.

“No one should ever feel like they’ve just come out of a cookie-cutter experience at a skin spa,” said Ms. Benedict, “at Lyft, our goal is to create an environment so your skin can flourish.”

Lyft, will be located at the MaryEllen Locher Breast Center, 605 Glenwood Drive, suite 100 Chattanooga, TN 37404. For more information or to schedule a consultation call 315-6017.

We Need The Chattanooga History Center

Having been on several of Dr. Daryl Black's walking tours, I can say that they weren't just informative, but a treat.

We stood on the ground where Sherman had his headquarters (near the Ice Cream Show) and the corner where Bessie Smith sang as a young girl. And we also stood beneath the ... (click for more)
