AFYA Skin and Body Clinic’s goal is to provide a full service skin clinic that focuses on increasing skin’s health and in turn brightening, tightening and rejuvenating the skin!*
The word AFYA comes from a traditional African language, Swahili, meaning Healthy. We believe that achieving healthy skin means combining regularly scheduled facials with the best in skin care and treating issues that arise from free radical damage and aging factors. Our skin was meant to be smooth, tight and flawless, just as we were born with. In utilizing safe technologies to repair the skin, we can correct sun damage, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, unwanted veins, rosacea, fine lines, enlarged pores, stretch marks, acne, acne scarring, body scars, unwanted fat deposits and cellulite.*
