Hetter Peel Resurfacing

Hetter Chemical Peel

Facial Resurfacing, Variable Croton Peel (VCP)

Dr. Kass shares his knowledge and experience with Croton Oil Chemical Peel. Dr. Kass also became one of the Founding Members of the International Peeling Society and has lectured on this unique technique all over the world.

In the year 2000, Gregory Hetter, M.D. published a series of articles examining the ratio of the ingredients used in the 40 year old Baker-Gordon peel (also known as the phenol peel). Through a series of ingenious tests, combined with close and expert observation, he determined that the active ingredient within this peel formula was croton oil and not the phenol originally advocated. This revelation led to Dr. Hetter’s development of the Hetter Formulas, altering the concentrations of these vital ingredients in order to achieve optimal results with optimal safety.

Shortly after the publication of the articles, which revolutionized the art of skin resurfacing, Dr. Kass discussed the formulas with Dr. Hetter, gaining deeper insight into the solutions, and resolving any ambiguities found within the articles. Although some may refer to these solutions as modified croton oil peels, Dr. Kass prefers to use the term Hetter Resurfacing Procedure (HCP) in honor of the man who recognized the importance of croton oil and altered its concentrations in his formulas.

Dr. Kass has been performing the Hetter Resurfacing Procedure since shortly after the original articles were published. Without doubt, Dr. Kass is one of the most experienced cosmetic physicians in the world with this technique.
