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.

A Disturbing Trend At Exit 11 - And Response (2)

So, am I the first to notice a trend?   How many wrecks does exit 11 need before anyone asks "whats up with that?"  I have lost count of the wrecks that continue to happen, even after last year's awful loss of life (which I believe 51 percent of the blame should fall on the THP officer on duty).  The problem with this section of interstate are sight lines ...

Roy Exum: A Story You Won’t See

In a puzzling time when the big daily newspapers have veered strongly away from “all the news that is fit to print,” allow me to share a story that you very likely will not see on CNN, ABC News, or in the big media conglomerates that influence the way you think, the way you react and – as a result – easily warp our common senses. This story is very true. Late last Sunday afternoon, ... (click for more)
