Our IPS sessions promised to be special and lived up to all expectations.
In beautiful New Orleans, dermatologists from all over the world came together to share their knowledge, but also to discuss among themselves the latest trends and methods of chemical peels. With participants from many different countries and from all continents, the rooms were filled to capacity.
For all participants and members of the IPS it was nice to see old friends again and to make new contacts.
Especially the intercultural scientific exchange about standards, new trends and developments in chemical peelings was in the foreground of the discussions and is of essential importance especially in dermatology.
The scientific program of these event days with lecture blocks was supplemented by workshops and an industrial exhibition.
This mixture promised the greatest possible learning success and stimulated lively discussions directly with the specialists.

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!

This year the great speakers Dr. Luitgard Wiest and Dr. Clara Boudny Frey were invited and shared their experience on chemical peeling. The attendance consisted of 15 dermatologists coming from Germany, Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, France and Israel.
After a theoretical overview a phenol peeling and a 35%-TCA peeling were demonstrated live on patients. 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. The course was a real success, not only from point of view of teaching but the two days offered several opportunities for networking over a delicious lunch and a fantastic dinner. We would like to thank all persons that made it possible!

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.
Date: Thursday, March 2, 2017Time: 2.00 - 5.30 pmLocation: Orange County Convention Center, Room 304 CD, Orlando, Florida
