USA Athletic Club & Spa’s 61,000-square-foot health center rolls out sundry exercise machines and fitness classes, hosting sweat sessions 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The club boasts such amenities as saunas, steam rooms, a lap pool, a basketball court, and an indoor track, along with more than 100 cardio-centric machines, each equipped with a flat-screen TV, allowing fit seekers to fuel their workouts with heart-pumping reruns of Bob Ross’s Joy Of Painting. Held seven days a week, group classes welcome patrons of all fitness levels with offerings such as Zumba, yoga, and spinning, which works glutes and calves inside the well-equipped spin studio. Workouts are complemented by an array of massage services performed by licensed muscle menders, who burgeon relaxation and alleviate aches with a mélange of modalities including deep-tissue, reflexology, hot-stone, and Swedish massage.
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.
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.
Cathy India, the aesthetician behind The Skin You're In, beautifies clients’ complexions with custom facials and seasonal treatments that keep skin smooth and blemish-free year-round. She treats guests to facials, microdermabrasions, and chemical peels as well as exfoliating body scrubs and wraps infused with volcanic clay, Chinese herbs, and other therapeutic ingredients.

Francesca D'Ambrosio's first job in the beauty biz was answering phones at a salon and spa in Naperville. Once she earned her cosmetology license, she jetted to New York to work alongside prestigious stylists and make her way to the top from the bottom of the barrel. Fortunately, her first gig as a stylist was anything but at the bottom of the barrel—she started at the Bumble and bumble salon, one of the Big Apple's hubs for celebrities, fashion-industry elites, and globetrotting wigs. She stayed in New York for about a decade, shaping the famous hairs atop Fran Drescher, Mark Wahlberg, Joan Jett, and Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas.
When she relocated to Oswego, Francesca opened a salon of her own. Located on Main Street in the historic downtown area, the space has the simple sophistication that befits a transplanted New Yorker. The black-and-white scheme extends to the walls, where portraits of Audrey Hepburn and other style icons supervise haircuts, keratin treatments, and color services.
