It was her struggle with acne that led Jessica, a DePaul University graduate and former IT project manager, to make the switch from information technology to medical aesthetics. Today, she is certified by CosMedix in everything from basic epidermal care to complex chemical peels. She strives to fuel her treatments with CosMedix products, which are free of irritating ingredients such as parabens, synthetic glycolic acid, fragrances, and shredded glamour photos.
Jessica also teaches teens how to conquer acne with lessons on proper skincare and facial treatments. When she isn't helping individual clients obtain radiant skin or filing lawsuits against rosacea, she hosts spa parties for special events and provides all the necessary supplies.
Chiropractor Dr. M. Asad and his versatile staff perform a comprehensive list of health and wellness services, and pride themselves on treating each patient with personalized care. Massage therapy and acupuncture sessions nurture bodies as a whole rather than catering separately to the wishes of disparate arms or heads. ChiroMed's nonsurgical chiropractic methods, which are customized to suit each spine's needs, assuage achy backs irritated by the feeble proddings of traditional medicine. In addition, the expansive therapy center boasts an organic med spa with an array of soothing skin and body treatments, such as wraps, peels, and microdermabrasions.
At the front desk of Headz Up Salon, a colorful chalkboard menu welcomes visitors with daily specials, drawings, and a list of their latest services. The stylists—each with at least a decade of industry experience—cut, style, braid, and color hair beneath the fronds of vibrant potted plants. They welcome clients of all ages, and can often accommodate dual haircuts for moms and daughters or dads and their cheeseheads.
At The Emperor's Medicine, seasoned massage therapist Selma Gladney channels years of practice, an extensive educational background, and worldly techniques gleaned in Beijing, China, during muscle-mending sessions of massage therapy. During each one-hour session, Selma aims to alleviate ailments while promoting each client's overall well-being, employing her pirouetting hands to produce a cavalcade of physical benefits, including improved circulation, reduced blood pressure, and relief from the tense negotiations of baseball-card trades. Relaxation-seekers may also experience an elevated mental state, as serene strokes work to assuage anxiety. Groupon holders can upgrade stress-melting sessions to 90 minutes for an additional $35.

When Seida Chapa opened her own salon, she staffed it with trained stylists who inject industry trends into their menu of services. In addition to haircuts and color treatments, they calm frizzy tresses with keratin and chemical straightening treatments. Spa specialists can give collagen a boost, expel fat, and improve circulation with Bioslimming wraps, and aesthetic specialists use glycolic-acid peels to help subdue wrinkles, dead skin cells, and large pores. Eyelash extensions and eyebrow threading make peepers pop, as do traditional and permanent makeup services. Staffers also primp hands and feet with mani-pedis, or craft custom wigs made out of human hair harvested from John Stamos's immortal scalp.
