AFA Advanced Clinical Peels

Let’s Talk: AFA Advanced Clinical Peels

At Medisthetics Wellness & Laser Clinic, “Amino acid Filaggrin” (AFA) Peels are a new, unique, and fully patented cosmeceutical solution for skin rejuvenation. Formulated with safe ingredients which serve to retain moisture within the skin and aid in fighting against photo-pigmentation, AFAs are recommended to be used in combination with other cosmetic procedures, like IPL or other laser treatments.


AFA Antioxidant Facial Peels are a safe and effective way to improve common patient concerns with photo-damaged skin. The peels exfoliate dead skin cells with less irritation than AHA peels and are specially designed for patients with dry and more sensitive skin.


How Does an AFA Peel Work?

Most simply, AFA Chemical Peels work by removing a portion of the acid mantle layer of the skin via a potent, amino-acid and antioxidant-rich clay-based peeling solution, revealing fresh, new, radiant skin that you can see and feel. 

The treatment involves two key steps, followed by careful aftercare:

1. Firstly, for about 5 minutes, a clay mask is applied to the skin, to draw out impurities and open up the pores, prepping the skin ahead of the peel.


2. Next, a thin layer of the AFA peeling solution is applied to the skin for only 2-5 minutes, as it works incredibly fast.

AFAs Have 7 Unique Advantages as Topical Anti-Aging Cosmeceuticals:

  1. AFAs promote greater moisture retention in human skin.

  2. AFAs have fold greater antioxidant potency than AHAs.

  3. AFAs are very effective exfoliants.

  4. Most patients notice visible improvement rather quickly (often within a few days).

  5. AFAs are more powerful against “photo-pigmentation” (i.e. sun damage).

  6. AFAs have little irritation when compared to AHAs.

  7. AFAs are not “photosensitizing” (i.e. sensitive to sunlight).
