Published Article Elsevier


We are very proud to share with you a published article by Dr. Kass.  This can be found in the journal ‘Advances in Ophthalmology and Optometry’.

Key points within the article

  • Croton oil peels can peel as deeply as any other means of facial resurfacing and can be used to achieve remarkable results.
  • Unlike “phenol” peels, which were originally thought to be “all or nothing,” the croton oil concentration can be varied, allowing different facial areas to be peeled to different depths.
  • Croton oil peels result in less down time, less redness, and fewer complications than other techniques for a similar depth achieved.
  • Indications for croton oil peels include facial rhytids, uneven pigmentation, adjunct treatment in transconjunctival lower blepharoplasties and festoons, acne scars, and nonmelanoma skin cancer prophylaxis.
  • Unlike lasers, croton oil peels can be performed with little cost to the provider.
