AFA Clay Peel 101

The quest for more youthful, blemish-free skin seems almost never ending. Lots of different methods and techniques are available for your skin; both at-home and professional. One of the newer techniques is called AFA Clay Peel.

What Is AFA?

The AFA aspect of this peel refers to a patented combination of amino acids that mimic many of the naturally-occurring amino acids in your own skin. The acronym stands for “Amino Acid Filaggrin-based Antioxidants.” In Canada, you must visit a medical professional in order to have access to AFA, and the AFA Clay Peel.

The Clay Element

Along with the AFA formulation, a soothing, earth clay is used to help draw toxins and impurities out of the skin. It also soothes the skin and prepares it for the gel that will ultimately act as the peel.

How It Works

The AFA Clay Peel is a two-step process that takes place entirely inside Fairview Laser Clinic Inc. The AFA Clay Peel works similarly to any other type of skin peel, in that the dirt and debris trapped in the top layers of skin are removed as part of the process.

This type of peel requires no recovery time or missed time, and the desired results are usually accomplished with roughly six treatments, spaced 1 to 2 weeks apart. Your doctor might schedule the peel in combination with other non-invasive treatments like IPL or microdermabrasion.

A Total-Body Peel

Usually, a peel is designed for use on the face, and this one is too, but it goes a bit farther. You can use an AFA Clay Peel on your face, neck, back, chest and even hands. Virtually, anywhere acne or photo-damage is an issue, the AFA Clay Peel can help. And you can notice a difference almost immediately.

Expected Benefits

Your skin will appear a little firmer and smoother after the very first treatment, even though follow-up treatments are required for optimum results. After your treatment protocol with AFA Clay Peel, you can expect:

  • Greater moisture in your skin.
  • Tighter, toned skin.
  • Exfoliation without skin irritation.
  • Reduction in visible lines and wrinkles.
  • Improvement in sun-damaged areas.
  • Even skin texture.
  • Smoother and softer skin.

This peel is beneficial for all skin types, which means people with multiple skin tones, multiple age groups and both genders can take advantage of what it has to offer. The concept and the application is quite simple, but the results are long-lasting and they are noticeable, right from the start.

After completion of a series of 6 treatments patients require maintenance every 6 months.
