About Chemical Peels
Using the highest quality in chemical peel aesthetic treatments, Basile Plastic Surgery provides patients with choices for a medical-grade facial treatment with chemical solutions (such as salicylic, glycolic, trichloroacetic and lactic acids) that give you smoother, healthier skin on the face. At our Naples, FL office, aesthetic plastic surgeon Dr. Andrea Basile offers chemical peel treatments that remove skin flaws including fine lines, wrinkles, scars, uneven patches, hyperpigmentation problems, and more. Chemical peels eliminate dead or damaged skin cells by using a specific solution on the skin that causes the oldest layer to slough off. When your skin recovers and starts to repair and rejuvenate itself, you should see a smoother, clearer complexion. A chemical peel facial is a nonsurgical procedure to make your complexion bright and may be appropriate for the face, neck, and décolletage.
Variations of Chemical Peels
In our Naples, FL office, we provide chemical peels in a few levels (light, medium, and deep) to fit our patients' skin concerns and goals.
Light peels: You can receive a light peel on your lunch break and get back to your routine. This strength of peel will remove the outer layer of skin (the epidermis), giving your complexion a more radiant appearance and smoother texture. We usually recommend that you get a light treatment around once a month for the ideal glowing results.
Medium-depth peels: This strength of peel penetrates further into the skin, and patients generally decide to have this level of facial treatment during an extended weekend. You may also prefer to ready yourself for increased discomfort during and around one hour following the chemical peel. Medium-depth peels are best for patients who have deeper damage to their skin such as deeper lines and darker pigmentation problems.
Deep peels: The strongest of the three levels of peels is the deep peel treatment, and it does require the most recovery time. This is an aggressive cosmetic treatment that could leave your face peeling, itchy, and swollen for several weeks. Patients who receive a deep chemical peel will have age or dark spots, sun damage, significant acne scars, or deep scars. Since this strength of chemical peel is typically uncomfortable for patients, your aesthetician will provide you with mild anesthesia prior to your procedure.
Receiving the suggestions of an aesthetic specialist is the first part in the journey to healthier skin. A team member at Basile Plastic Surgery will evaluate your skin during a consultation in our Naples, FL office before selecting a chemical peel for ideal results. Chemical peel patients, of both genders, typically have visible problems in their skin like scaly patches, flaky skin, uneven pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and more. We will recommend multiple types of peels to fit your needs and concerns.
"Breast augmentation was something that I had been thinking about since my third daughter was born 19 years ago. But as a stay at home mom/wife, it just never seemed to be “the right time”. I waited, patiently, until at last the timing was right! I did a lot of research and talked to many people. Dr. Basile was one of three Plastic Surgeons that I met with before making my final decision. From my initial consultation, I knew that I had found my plastic surgeon.Dr. Basile and his entire staff are nothing short of exceptional. First impressions are everything… when I arrived at the office, which by the way, was beautiful, clean and smelled AMAZING, I was greeted by Ashley, the patient care coordinator. She immediately made me feel comfortable with her welcoming smile. She put me in a consultation room where we talked for a bit and then she said Dr. Basile would be right in… and I don’t think I even waited five minutes to see him.The time everyone took with me was amazing, I never once felt rushed. Dr. Basile is a highly skilled surgeon with a good eye. I had done my research and when I went to my appointment I knew EXACTLY what I wanted. He listened as I explained, in detail, what I hoped my end result would be, then he offered his suggestions on what he thought would give me the best results.At my pre-op appointment he thoroughly explained the procedure and technique. Went through all of the medications and recovery, discussed any questions I had, and again, went through all of my “wish photos” that I showed him. From the time I had my consultation until now I called (or emailed) several times, I had a gazillion questions and Ashley was always patient, kind, courteous and professional. She ALWAYS made me feel like there was no silly question and regardless of how busy she was, I felt as if she was my very own personal patient coordinator, like I was their only patient.Finally - SURGERY DAY! I arrived at the surgery center at 6:30am. Feeling nothing more than excited! Dr. Basile came in, drew on my chest with a marker, and asked me again if I had any questions. Enter Operating Room, (ok, NOW maybe I’m feeling nervous) sleepy time, Dr. Basile “working his magic”, wake up, feel fine, go home. Took meds as prescribed. Saw Dr. Basile first thing the next morning.The meds made me sick, (which is typical for me) but as far as pain, I really didn’t have any. I also didn’t have ANY bruising, not at all. I followed Dr.’s orders exactly as they were given to me. I had a “slight” complication, which was absolutely NO FAULT of Dr. Basile or the surgery center, (it was something that would have happened regardless of who my surgeon was) Dr. Basile handled it in a way that eased my mind. He’s not a “wait and see” doctor, when I called to say something was wrong, he had me in his office that day, even though I had just seen him 2 days prior. I saw him every few days for the next 2 weeks, then once a week for 2 months after that. I am now a little over 6 months post up, doing great and have very minimal scars already, and they will still continue to heal. I’m beyond happy with my results.I could go on and on, but the bottom line is Dr. Basile gave me exactly what I asked for. My Experience with Dr. Basile and his staff was exceptional. I highly recommend Basile Plastic Surgery."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Apr 25, 2018

"Dr. Basille and his assistant Marissa have been absolutely fabulous. After researching extensively for a good surgeon for breast augmentation and a tummy tuck, I finally chose Dr. Basille due to his extensive knowledge, his politeness and honesty. I loved his no frills approach and how thorough he was. He listened and went over all my options in detail. The cosmetic industry is overwhelming and choosing a cosmetic surgeon can be daunting and tiresome. So I am hoping by leaving this review and being so exhilarated by my results, I have done the hard work for so many. If you want a meticulous Dr who will make you look amazing look no further."- A.L. / Google / Mar 16, 2023
"I can’t say enough good things about Dr.Basile and his entire office! From the moment you walk in you’re greeted by smiling faces. I have had both disport and filler with Dr. Basile. I’ve been having both for many years and had it done at many places and he is by far the best with placement. I am extremely happy to have found him. He is very kind and makes you feel at ease. I have also seen both Diana for laser hair removal and Alissa for skin care. Between the three you have a an absolute dream team."- E.R. / Google / Nov 28, 2022

Plan Your Procedure
At your appointment at Basile Plastic Surgery, we will have you lying in a comfortable position to administer your treatment. A team member will ensure the skin is cleaned prior to applying the personalized solution to the treatment areas. We will massage the solution onto the skin and allow it to work for an appropriate length of time that will be determined in your chemical peel consultation. Finally, we will clean the peel off your skin and put on a neutralizing agent. Patients are encouraged to bring sunscreen or a hat to wear outside following the procedure to protect from environmental exposure.
What to Expect
Based on the level of the chemical peel you choose, you should expect the face to peel and itch from several days to two or more weeks. Dr. Basile or a member of his team will give instructions on methods to treat your face during your consultation. Please remember that no matter how badly your skin itches throughout the post-treatment process, it's not helpful to pick the skin off. You may create scarring on your delicate skin.
