Dermatology is a medical profession that focuses solely on the care of the skin, mucous membranes, hair, and nails.
Dermatology & Compounding
Dermatology and compounding are uniquely parallel. Compounding dermatology has been used for years. Dermatologists prescribe compounded medicines to patients, and they are administered for skin care through custom prescriptions and cosmetics. Psoriasis, warts, acne, solar lentigines, and more are conditions that have been successfully treated by experienced compounding pharmacists. However, acne is more common in patients treated for skin blemishes. Acne can be caused by a multitude of things, including the combination of skin inflammation, clogged pores, hormonal imbalance and bacterial growth. Inflammation is caused by sebum and dead skin that combine to clog pores. Furthermore, acne breakouts can come from the bacteria that forms inside the clogged pores and on the skin.
Custom Care Pharmacy continues to push the boundaries to improve both the therapeutic and aesthetic aspects of customized medications. Our goal is to offer advantages and alternatives for dermatology using unique formulations that are “tried and true”. These formulations are utilized to enhance the absorption of topical medications. Upon request, we can even compound medications that are hypoallergenic, paraben-free, and oil free.
