The Benefits of Using Compounded Dermatology Medications
Your skin is as unique as you are. From the bottom of your feet to the top of your scalp, the variances in your skin’s composition could be as different as a desert is toa tropical forest. Each part of your body is like its own separate ecosystem with variedmoisture levels and sensitivities. As different as your skin is all over your body, it’s easy to imagine that no other person’s skin is like yours. Custom made medications allows the physician and compounding pharmacist to work closely with you to formulate a medication that will meet your specific needs.
Here are the benefits of using compounded dermatology products:
Treating Skin Conditions More Effectively
Mass-produced skincare brands design creams, serums, and gels that are usually broken down into five essential skin types: normal, sensitive, oily, dry, and combination. Even high-quality skin products suggest treatments based on very broad-sweeping categories. Unfortunately, there is more to just skin “type” than that. Our skin tells us a lot about what’s going on underneath: Hormone imbalances, changes in diet, stress, age, and environmental factors all play a part in how our skin looks and feels.
A compounded dermatological treatment is designed only for your specific skin profile. Through the expertise of pharmacists and dermatologists, compounding offers an alternative to commercially made medications because it is precisely compounded with ingredients to treat you, while taking into consideration personal factors, such as your age, race, sex, sensitivities to medication, allergies, etc.
Positive Response to Dermatology Treatments
Customers respond faster to personalized treatments rather than commercially available one-size-fits-most attempts to cure many skin conditions, such as:
- Brittle Nails
- Diaper rash
- Hair Loss
- Hyperpigmentation (Dark spots)
- Nail fungal infections
- Stretch marks
- Excessive sweating
- Eczema, Psoriasis
- Keloids, and much more
With compounded dermatology medications, pharmacists can provide custom medications that may prevent, treat or reverse certain disease states. Our pharmacists may offer suggestions that more exact treatment for your skin conditions with fewer side effects or adverse reactions, eliminating the ingredients you don’t need and balancing out the ones you do. ORIGINS’ Compounding pharmacists formulate safe and effective medications that have been researched all over the world but may not be available to market in Canada. Responding to physician and patient needs, our compounding lab includes a certified sterile lab, exceeding the USP regulations to formulate medications that are to be used in the eye or skin.
Transdermal Delivery of Medication
Topical anesthetics, scar tissue treatment, analgesics, and other medical treatments may be more beneficial and effective when delivered transdermally. If using topical medications for the treatment of pain, skin gels or creams provide faster relief to patients who are able to apply pain relief directly to the affected area. Negative side effects, such as stomach upset, are often associated with oral pain medication that also takes longer to provide relief. Compounded dermatology provides faster and more exact medication to your affected areas.
