What We Are About
Results-oriented skin care solutions

We understand that patients want real life skin health solutions that provide demonstrable results over a wide range of skin types and conditions. Our afa products are exactly that. We provide reliable solutions for most skin types. Developed by board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Marvin Klein, afaLUXE™ is formulated a blend of natural amino-based acids and antioxidants that was patented in March of 2000 by the United States government.

afaLUXE™ are found in all afa products. The science-driven benefits of afaLUXE™ include the improvement in appearance of visible lines, all-over tone and texture and pigmentation correction and prevention. These results are achieved through greater moisture retention, potent antioxidants and effective exfoliation without causing irritation.

afa provides strategic solutions for real-life skin care issues that are available exclusively through dermatologists, plastic surgeons and high-end spas. afa products are cruelty-free and formulated with highly potent, stabilized antioxidants and powerful exfoliants that are effective, yet, produce little to no irritation, unlike traditional AHAs and glycolic acids.

Most importantly, afa products provide results.


Throughout those ventures, Dr. Klein worked with Dr. Joel Schlessinger to research and promote the afa products and concepts. Upon Dr. Klein’s passing, Dr. Schlessinger worked for years to keep the research and development of afa going. In the interest of keeping afa available to patients around the globe, Dr. Joel Schlessinger purchased exCel Manufacturing, Inc. in 2017 to continue the work of his colleague and friend, the late Dr. Klein.
