Skin Health, Exposed
It’s human nature to be active and spend time with others, enjoying the outdoors. Without the right safeguards, you could be putting yourself in harm’s way.
Think of the skin as a shell that serves to protect your body from the external elements. Including the potential damage from too much sun, it also shields against disease and infection that can be transmitted by air or touch. Whatever is going on outside, such as hot or cold temperatures, the skin helps keep it from the body’s insides. That’s why the skin you’re in needs to stay healthy.
Personal Factors Change the Way Skin Feels and Looks
It isn’t always exposure to the outside that affects the skin. Modifications to one’s diet, shifting levels of hormones, stressful circumstances and other health conditions can cause changes to the epidermis (skin).
While searching for over-the-counter medications or home remedies can be the common, immediate response, compounded dermatology medications often provide a more precise, long-term solution.
Your Skin Is Uniquely You – Dermatology Medications Can Be Too
Not all conditions can be treated safely and effectively from your local in-store pharmacy. If you’ve consulted a dermatologist and your current medications have not yielded the results you’re looking for, then customized compounded mediations could be the answer to better skin.
At The Compounding Pharmacy of America, we formulate custom dermatology medications to your exact specifications to speed up healing and provide relief for your skin.
Topical Dermatology Medications Are Welcome Alternatives
Personalized, topical treatments involve more than preparing medications into cream. (Although, in some cases, this is the preferred method of preparation for treating certain conditions.) Our compounding pharmacists can also prepare topical lotions for the scalp or topical lacquers for nails.
Our compounded dermatology medications can treat skin conditions such as:
- Scarring and Keloids
- Decubitus Ulcers
- Peristomal Dermatoses
- Excessive Sweating
- Stretch Marks
- Diaper Rash
- Vitiligo and Melasma
- And much more
Reduce the Downtime of Anti-Aging Treatments
The popularity of medical practices and aesthetic therapies that promote healthier skin and reduce the signs of aging is no surprise. To some, after they experience these types of procedures or the use of certain chemicals, the skin goes through a shedding process or rejuvenation that can cause discomfort.
To promote healing from these procedures, and to provide continuous protection from unhealthy air and sun exposure, we also offer products that are very effective in halting and even reversing the effects of sun exposure and aging skin.
Specialized dermatology medications that we offer are:
- BLT Gels for Chemical Peels
- Bio-Cosmeceuticals – which contain antioxidant formulations, retinoids, sunscreens and moisturizers
Effective Treatment Happens by Compounding Medications per Patient
There are many reasons why some people prefer their medications be formulated one way compared to another, such as a gel instead of a liquid solution. We can accommodate these types of requests and prepare your prescription in a manner that’s easier and more convenient to use. After all, even the best medications can’t help a patient if they’re not used correctly or don’t reach the area that needs to be treated.
Receiving the correct diagnosis from your doctor is just the first step. Following it up with a personalized treatment plan, like ours, is the key to proper healing. Working with our pharmacy for dermatology management allows patients to get the right help, ensuring that treatment through compounded medications is effective, sooner.
At The Compounding Pharmacy of America, we understand the urgency in finding answers to dermatological challenges. More than most other medical specialties, patients with dermatological conditions require individualized care – treatments that are not readily available commercially.
