Facial Peel Benefits
Before we get deeper into all the benefits of an AFA Peel, we thought we would tackle the simple question we hear to often; “Why do I need a peel, I wash my face everyday”.
The easiest way to answer that is to ask you if you brush your teeth everyday? Assuming you said yes, we would then remind you that you still need to see the dentist on a regular basis to make sure your teeth are at optimal health and for a deep clean & check up. Yup, you guessed it… same goes for your skin.
Washing your face daily and exfoliating periodically is the regular maintenance but coming to a professional for something like an AFA Peel gives you that deeper clean and keeps your facial skin in optimal health.
AFA Peel for great skin
AFA peels are especially good for skin that struggles with Rosacea or is particularly sensitive, and they are the only peel that does not make you sun-sensitive.
The AFA peel with added clay is designed especially for those with oily skin for an even deeper clean. Acne scars are diminished and oil production is regulated.
AFA’s are a new, unique, and patented, cosmeceutical.They are based on the same natural acidic amino acids that retain moisture in human skin, which also makes them free of irritants. They are a potent antioxidant and help the fight against photo pigmentation (aka age spots) in your facial skin.
These Peels can be used in tandem with other products and procedures and are only available in Canada through licensed professionals.
Here’s a bit of the science behind the AFA – Amino acid, Filaggrin based Antioxidants
Amino Acid – Twenty percent of the human body is made up of protein. Protein plays a crucial role in almost all biological processes and amino acids are the building blocks of it.
Filaggrin (filament aggregating protein) – is a filament-associated protein that binds to keratin fibers in epithelial cells.
An antioxidant is a molecule that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that can produce free radicals, leading to chain reactions that may damage cells. Antioxidants such as thiols or ascorbic acid (vitamin C) terminate these chain reactions.
With all of this going on, the AFA peel does wonders for the health, look and feel of your skin.
Why would you need an AFA Peel?
The winter is particularly hard on skin and can dry it out. Because of the AFA’s natural moisture system, a treatment can help with this dryness and bring back a more balanced complexion.
They can improve the appearance of fine lines and provide outstanding results for age spots. AFA peels are great for anti aging prevention and correction. The more peels you have the better the results and the best thing is they cost no more than an average facial!
Getting a peel is very easy and relaxing. Our technician cleanses your face then applies the AFA mask for about 5 minutes. The mask is gently removed with water. You’re then provided with appropriate aftercare instructions. It’s that easy! No downtime!
The best part about an AFA Peel is that it offers almost immediate results! Because this peel provides such an immediate increase in moisture retention, you see benefits unusually fast. If you have a special occasion like a wedding or anniversary, you might want to book in one of these treatments a couple of days before… bring a few friends!
Now that you know everything there is to know about the AFA Peel, don’t you think it’s time to come in and perfect the skin you were born in?
