  • Hands-On Peeling Course in Muttenz, Switzerland

    November 01.-02., 2019 - Peeling Workshop in Muttenz, Switzerland

    This year again, the 2-days Chemical Peeling Live-Workshop under the direction of Dr. Oliver Ph. Kreyden was a great success. The participants, dermatologists and plastic surgeons, gained a deep insight into theory and practice of chemical peelings. The live peeling sessions, a phenol peeling under anesthesia by Dr. Oliver Ph. Kreyden and a phenol/TCA combined peeling by Dr. Dr. Frank Muggenthaler were particularly interesting and rich in learning.

    On the second day Dr. Clara Boudny presented the superficial peelings including two live-peelings to patients. Within these 2 days the participants benefited from the great know-how of three worldwide renowned peeling specialists. The overall training format also offered ample time for networking, intense exchange amongst professionals and good conversations over a nice dinner in the Archaeological Cellar between the old city walls of Basel.

    Thanks for your wonderful feedback - for example:

    “I had the great opportunity to take part on the 7th Peeling Course in Muttenz/Switzerland organized by Dr. Kreyden and his fabulous team.In this two days I learned a lot on the theoretical and practical use of peelings by three international known experts (Dr. Boundy, Dr. Kreyden and Dr. Dr. Muggenthaler). The experts explained their views and treatment pathways in a very comprehensive matter and gave a lot of tips and tricks for treatment and how to achieve the best result. Beside the profound transmission of knowledge, I enjoyed the hospitality of the whole team and the exchange with colleagues during the delicious dinner in Basel’s Old Town. The limited number of attendees allowed a personalized teaching and training. I highly recommend this course for all colleagues interested in peelings, whether you are dermatologist, plastic surgeon, maxillofacial surgeon,….”

    At the end of the course one thing is certain: We are already looking forward to the next live-workshop in 2020!

The second day was devoted to the superficial peelings, where the ultimate technique was also conducted in a live peeling session. On that day peeled patients also told us about their experience.

    IPS Hands-on Workshop in St. Petersburg, Florida

    The first IPS Workshop in the US was a spectacular success in St. Petersburg, Florida the first weekend in April. Nine doctors were in attendance (6 dermatologists/dermatologic Surgeons and 3 ophthalmoplastic surgeon). The Three Faculty were: Dr.  Laurence Kass, Dr. Harold Brody and Dr. Peter Rullan with the course being given at the Kass Center for Cosmetic Surgery.  Patients were peeled all day on Friday and Saturday with the patients returning Sunday morning for Follow-up.  

    12 patients were peeled and the attendees particularly focused on the Hetter phenol/croton oil peels and medium depth CO2 dry ice + 35% TCA. It was very valuable for the doctors to directly observe and then actually use the wounding agents themselves. Salicylic acid peel was also performed. Additional follow up is on google conference to continue discussion and see follow-ups further in time. We specially thank Dr. Larry Kass for his dedication to providing a facility for this workshop.

    Prof. Peter Paul Rullan was lecturing many important, interesting and stunning things about peels.

    All the attendees were abolutely overwhelmed and happy after these very intense but excellent three days! And all will start working with all these peels from now on in their practice!

    A big thank you to Prof. Peter Paul Rullan for his amazing work! And of course a big thank you to Dr. Luitgard Wiest for her help to make this workshop happen!
