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.

The Ultimate facial fuses the exfoliative power of microdermabrasion with the skin-tightening talents of a Synergie treatment to create a one-two complexion-cosseting punch. A savvy skinscaper tones epidermal planes with a Synergie vacuum massage that smoothes skin and hot-wires sluggish circulation to restore pep to visages exhausted from perpetually perplexed expressions. Once smile turbines have undergone thorough dust-busting, a microdermabrasion treatment exorcises cheeks of loitering dead cells while diminishing the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, and temporary leopard-spot tattoos.
