Miracle Worker Acne Scar Treatment--Hetter Peel

Dr. Kass is a true miracle worker. Since my early 20s I have suffered from acne scars. After turning 30 I decided enough was enough. I saw Dr. Kass’ reviews and photos for his acne scar treatment, and immediately made an appointment. Both the doctor and his staff were friendly, kind and patient. Dr. Kass made it clear to me that each patient who suffers from acne scars is different, and there is no one set way to help diminish the scars. Dr. Kass didn’t promise to eliminate my acne scars completely, but he did say he could get at least an 80% improvement. I went in for my procedure and had his hetter peel with microneedling and subcision. I just saw him a few weeks ago for my 3 month check up. I am beyond thrilled with my results so far! I truly believe he gave me greater than 80% improvement, and its all that I could have asked for. My skin is siginifcantly better in appearance and texture, my scars are hardly noticeable if there at all. I no longer need to wear mounds of cover up and foundation. I can’t thank Dr. Kass enough!

More about Dr. Lawrence G Kass

Lawrence Kass M.D. is a Board Certified Diplomat of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery in Facial Cosmetic Surgery. He is Fellowship trained in Oculo-Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and is the Director of The Kass Center for Cosmetic Facial and Eye Plastic Surgery. For the past twenty three consecutive years, he has been selected to be one of the Best Doctors in America, voted by his medical colleagues and peers. Dr. Kass grew up on Long Island in Jericho, N.Y. While always a good student, for most of his childhood he was more interested in participating in stickball, soccer, Little League baseball, and pickup basketball and football games. But after entering high school, the future Dr. Kass paid more attention to his studies. He attained perfect 800 scores on the standardized Achievement Tests (now called SAT II%u2019s) in Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics and a perfect score of 5 on his Advanced Placement examination in BC Calculus. Ultimately, he graduated at the very top of his class, Valedictorian of Jericho High School. This school has, according to Newsweek magazine, been consistently ranked within the top five public high schools in the entire U.S. Dr. Kass turned down offers from Princeton University, Brown University, and a very prestigious accelerated program at Northwestern University, to accept a similar, highly selective, accelerated medical program at Boston University. Because of his superior achievements in high school, Dr. Kass was accepted into both the undergraduate school at B.U. and into the Boston University School of Medicine. Dr. Kass finished his studies within the top five of 53 students. This performance enabled him to graduate from Boston University with both Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa Honors. After postgraduate training at Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola, N.Y., Dr. Kass completed his residency at the University of South Florida. In addition to serving as Chief Resident, Dr. Kass received the highest score EVER achieved at this program on the national residency examinations. Dr. Kass was then accepted for a Fellowship in Oculo-Facial Plastic Surgery at the prestigious Manhattan, Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital under the preceptorship of the late Dr. Albert Hornblass, one of the most respected names in this highly specialized field. Only 20 physicians in the entire nation are accepted to approved Fellowships in this medical field each year. After completing all of his formal medical training, Dr. Kass established a private medical practice, The Kass Center for Cosmetic Facial & Eye Plastic Surgery, in Pinellas County in 1986. He has continued to participate in the academic aspects of medicine, writing and publishing numerous articles in peer-reviewed medical journals. He was an early member of the highly selective and prestigious American Society of Oculo-Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and is one of only a handful of Diplomats in Cosmetic Facial Surgery recognized by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery in the entire state of Florida. Dr. Kass proudly maintains his membership in the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, the American Board of Ophthalmology, American Medical Association, and the Florida Medical Association. He is a past president of the Tampa Bay Ophthalmology Society. Dr. Kass is nationally recognized as a pioneer in the use of both lasers and the Hetter chemical peel for facial rejuvenation procedures. He remains active in teaching young physicians the art and the science of cosmetic facial and plastic surgery. Dr. Kass has remained happily married to his first and only wife for the past 27 years. He resides in St. Petersburg, is the proud father of three children, and is an active tennis player.
