What is the AFA Clay Peel Facial?
The AFA Clay-Peel is among the most sophisticated facial skin care product available on the market and is only available through trained medical professionals. Works especially well for patients with oily to normal, this rare earth (Clay) treatment promotes cell turnover by exfoliating the skin and removing dead skin cells.
The AFA Clay Peel combines the outstanding benefits of rare earth and the patented AFA blend of amino-based filaggrin antioxidants in a unique, 2-step application process that provides unparalleled results for doctors and their patients. The AFAs in the Clay-Peel are natural amino acids designed specifically to reduce acne, address aging skin, pigmentation irregularities (sun damage), and enlarged pores.
The AFA Clay-Peel is a two-step non-surgical procedure that will help create smoother, softer and tighter skin. The treatment is quick and simple with virtually no down time.
What does the AFA™ Clay Peel Facial do?
The AFA Clay-Peel has two steps:
1. The application of a clay mask.
2. The exfoliating, refreshing peel
The clay mask draws out impurities, absorbs excess oil, and prepares the skin for the peel. The peel exfoliates dead skin cells and removes excess oil and other impurities from the skin with less irritation than most other AHAs or glycolic peels. Dramatic results can be seen immediately. Your skin will feel smoother, softer and tighter after the first application. Over a series of Clay peels, you will see improvements in the appearance of skin, uneven texture, and pigment irregularities, plus an improvement in the appearance of enlarged pores.
What should I expect during the 2-step AFA™ Clay Peel Facial Procedure?
First your face will be cleansed, toned, and dried. Second, a thin layer of mask is then applied and left on approximately for 5-6 minutes. The mask is then gently removed with water. Third, the AFA peel is applied on the face and left on for 1-2 minutes. At this time you may experience a mild tingling sensation that should only last a few moments. The peel is then rinsed from the skin and appropriate after-care is supplied by your medical professional. Your skin may experience some redness, which could last a few hours. This is normal.
Who is a good candidate for the AFA™ Clay Peel Facial?
