Voted Best Day Spa 2010 by Rhode Island Monthly readers, Alayne White Spa beautifies and revitalizes guests. The Multivitamin Power Peel targets the face, neck, and décolleté (low-cut areas of the neck) regions, doing away with anti-aging aspirations, and instead adding luminosity to the skin and embracing facial wrinkles like the way a child embraces a ripe watermelon.
In high school, Hillary Adams stumbled upon a PBS TV special about massage therapy that inspired her to experiment with massage techniques on her friends and family. After graduating from college with degrees in English literature and anthropology, she reignited her teenage passion by enrolling at Bancroft School for Massage Therapy. Since completing massage school in 1999, Hillary has become a nationally certified and Rhode Island–licensed massage therapist who uses 100% natural oils and various modalities to treat clients ranging from pain-stricken weekend warriors to an 11-year-old girl receiving her first-ever massage.
Located inside a century-old Victorian home next to the historic Ladd Observatory, Hillary's Providence office reverberates with soothing new-age tunes by Dean Evenson. She also works out of Glow Face & Body Spa, which houses a massage room furnished with modern decor and artwork. Both of Hillary's locations offer ample parking, so guests don't have to worry about finding a place to park their car or stable their griffin.
At Ageless Body Sculpting, Dr. Gagliardi––a board-certified obstetrician gynecologist and trained liposuction technician––oversees cosmetic procedures that help clients lose weight and gain confidence. From liposuction to Botox, the clinic offers multiple avenues by which clients may attain healthy and stunning appearances. The facility's weight loss program helps clients lose up to 3 to 7 pounds a week through a specialized diet and one-on-one support from healthcare professionals. Those who desire faster results can trim fat from their neck, arms, abdomen, waist, or thighs with the assistance of SmartLipo, which is less invasive that traditional liposuction and can be performed under local anesthesia. Once contours have been shaped, Dr. Gagliardi and his staff can ensure patients have the confidence to show off their new form by administering laser hair removal treatments, which also free patients from daily shaving rituals and afford them more time to sing in the shower.
With doctors on staff, the medically supervised team at Agape Medical Spas performs a range of modern beauty treatments, including chemical peels, laser hair removal, and weight-loss regimens. Clients can also fill the 25th hour during the last day of daylight-saving time with a soothing spa service such as a massage, or a honey butter sugar glow scrub.
Spa Noor's staff enhances clients' aesthetic appeal with a bounty of skin services, fillers, and injectable treatments. Smooth out facial etchings by temporarily immobilizing muscles with nonsurgical Dysport treatments. The injected treatment improves lines left by frowny faces and helps to restore visages to a youthful, less stressed expression. Sclerotherapy treatments aim to eradicate veiny marks, with an injection of solution that makes veins swell and stick together, eventually turning into scar tissue that fades from view. Both treatments are preceded by a consultation, during which clients and physicians can discuss the chosen treatment and any accompanying concerns, as well as their favorite brand of salad dressing.
