What Are AFAs?
AFA is an acronym that stands for Amino Acid Filaggrin Based Antioxidants. Filaggrin is a type of amino acid naturally produced in the upper layer of the skin to help preserve moisture content. AFA skin peels and skin care products help you to preserve your skin’s moisture content naturally, without the addition of any harsh or irritating chemicals. AFAs are non-photosensitizing and are the most effective at improving photo-pigmentation than any other skin care solution.
AFA antioxidant facial peels are performed only by professionally trained personnel. AFA facial peels consist of higher concentrations of AFAs and are done on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.
What is an AFA Peel?
An AFA Peel is an antioxidant face peel that harnesses the power of amino acids to make your skin look and feel moisturized and glowing. Because they involve a high concentration of AFAs than over-the-counter skin care treatment, AFA peels are performed in-office by a trained professional. These treatments are done on a weekly or biweekly basis. For the best results, it is recommended that you complete at least six treatment sessions, and many people opt to have ongoing AFA peels as a part of their regular skin care routine.
In addition to this in-office treatment, MC Laser Clinic & Salon offers a series of AFA skin care products so that you can continue your AFA skin care routine at home.
AFA peels are also known as “The Bride Peel”. Gentle enough to give your skin that glow, the day of your Wedding!

What is an AFA Clay-Peel?
The AFA Clay Peel™ is the optimal two-step treatment to significantly improve the appearance of your skin. This advanced skin care formula works best with all skin types: combination, oily, acne-prone and highly sensitive or problem areas.
Dramatically improve the look and feel of your skin with this revolutionary two-step process. Simply book an appointment with an MC Laser Clinic & Salon skin care specialist to receive your treatment. Before applying the AFA Clay Peel™, your face will be thoroughly cleansed and dried to remove surface impurities and to prepare your skin for the first application of the AFA Mask. Then, the AFA gel is applied to your face for 5 minutes, in which time the patented Amino Acid formula exfoliates and detoxes your skin. After a quick and gentle removal, the AFA peel is applied for a minute or two and then washed away. Unlike other peels, there’s no recovery time.
The AFA Clay Peel™ rejuvenates your skin’s texture and pigmentation. You will notice significant improvements to skin with sun damage and irregularities, even to other areas that are prone to problems, such as your chest, shoulders and back.

How Do AFAs Work?
AFAs are very effective exfoliants because they are able to combine a low pH with a small molecular size. Patients will often notice an improvement in their skin in as little as a few days after an AFA peel. This is due to the immediate increase in moisture retention that AFAs bring to the skin. This immediate improvement helps motivate the patient to stick with the program long enough to address more significant issues like photo pigmentation. Clinical reports indicate that photo pigmentation also improves more quickly than with other cosmeceuticals, perhaps due to the combined effect of potent anti-oxidation and exfoliation.
- AFAs promote greater moisture retention in your skin.

- AFAs are very effective exfoliants.
- Patients notice a visible improvement in their skin very quickly, often in as little as a few days.
