Benefits of Dermatology Compounding

Hands with cream over whiteMany people live with the effects of stretch marks, scars and chronic pain. Commercial medications don’t always provide safe or effective solutions. This doesn’t mean that individuals have to simply put up with their conditions, though. Topical compounding offers an alternative to the ready-made products available off the shelf or by prescription.

The advantage of having medications compounded is that they can be made to exclude ingredients patients are sensitive or allergic to and in forms that are easy to tolerate, such as topical creams and gels.

Compounding Gels For Stretch Marks And Scars

Pharmaceutical compounding medications for patient use is certainly not new. Compounding offers solutions to problems that patients have been having for quite some time. Stretch marks can indicate weight gain, a period of rapid growth in adolescence or the birth of a child. Scars can bear witness to surviving a trauma or a surgical procedure.

A compounding pharmacist can prepare gels that will reduce the appearance of stretch marks and scars. In the case of scars, ingredients can be added to address issues such as redness and inflammation as the skin heals. Over several months, patients will see the benefit of applying the topical gel regularly to the affected area.

Compounding Creams For Pain

The benefit of using a topical cream to treat pain is that the medicine can be applied directly where it hurts. A patient doesn’t have to wait for the medication to travel through the stomach to the bloodstream and then reach the area of discomfort. Some oral pain medications can lead to stomach upset, constipation or worse, if taken regularly.

Using a pain cream makes sense since it is applied only to the area where the discomfort is occurring. A patient will not experience the same gastrointestinal side effects with this delivery method. A topical solution can also be applied as needed, compared to pills which require the doses to be regulated and spread out.
