Topical Anesthetics

The rapid proliferation of laser and cosmetic procedures has made adequate analgesia necessary for patient comfort and tolerability of treatments. The ideal topical anesthetic would have a rapid onset of activity and a high safety profile. Compounded triple anesthetic gel containing permeation enhancers can provide effective cutaneous anesthesia as early as 15 minutes after application without occlusion. Compounded vitamin K cream after a laser treatment may help reduce the severity of bruising.

Chemical Peels

Research has concluded that dermatologists should have a choice of formulations to satisfy individual patient needs. We can compound various combinations of chemical peels with kojic acid, glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid and more.

Barrier Creams

Barrier creams containing medications such as cholestyramine can be formulated to minimize development of contact dermatitis, as part of an incontinence skin care protocol, or to treat severe diaper rash.

Skin and Wound Care

We utilize specialized equipment, such as an ointment mill, that allows us to compound formulations containing high concentrations of active ingredients such as urea and silicone that can be useful for dry skin. Medications that improve capillary blood flow can be added to a compound to enhance circulation at the wound margins and promote healing of injury such as decubitis ulcers, venous stasis, diabetic ulcers, traumatic wounds, and burns. In addition, topical anesthetics can be added to relieve pain and medications that promote tissue regeneration can be added to speed healing.

Psoriasis

Topical compounded combination therapies can be of great benefit among the large population suffering from psoriasis.

Cosmeceuticals

Topical antioxidants such as alpha lipoic acid and vitamin C may promote energy production of skin cells and stimulate the formation of collagen. Topical amino acids such as DMAE may help to tone and add firmness to the skin, prevent age spots, and aid in healing the micro-scarring which causes wrinkles.

Wrinkle Reduction Cream

Wrinkle Reduction Cream Dr. Oz Style?

Dr. Oz has discussed using Pseudoephedrine + GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid) in a cream for instant skin tightening and wrinkle reduction around the eye area. On his show, Dr. Oz had suggested that people crush a Pseudoephedrine tablet and mix it with ½ tsp of wrinkle cream. The problem with this is it is highly unlikely you will get the particle size reduced adequately for proper efficacy, making the cream ineffective for wrinkle reduction. Instead the compounding pharmacists at MD Custom Rx can create an elegant Pseudoephedrine + GABA eye cream by prescription.
