There is a current epidemic of price hikes across indispensable dermatological medications. These increases are often unexpected and unexplained, fuelling patient frustration levels and a staggering number of unfilled prescriptions. In response to this, compounding offers custom-created dermatologic medications that are elegant, fairly priced, efficacious, and easy-to-use.
Our pharmacists are experts at creating custom compounds that address both medical skin conditions and aesthetic concerns. We understand that a dermatologist’s goal is to deliver patient satisfaction by working toward skin health and beauty. We collaborate with prescribers to develop formulas to achieve just this!
ALTERNATIVES TO COMMERCIAL MEDICATIONS
Compounding medications for dermatology is a special class of precision medicine. It provides one of the few instances where you get to hear the sigh of relief as a salve is rubbed in – not something a pill or surgical intervention provides! So what are the benefits of compounded medications for dermatology?
Compounding is an essential component of precision medicine. By recognizing that people respond differently to the same treatments, it is possible to tailor medical doses, practices, and interventions. The very products used can be tuned to the individual patient based on their predicted response or risk of disease.
For precision medicine to provide unique, effective, compounded medications, someone must be asking the right questions. It is surprising how many opportunities are missed in health care to customize treatment plans to the patient’s needs. It can be vital, for example, to differentiate between gender and sex and determine whether the patient is male or female in order to tune treatments accordingly. Drilling down further also makes sense. Asking questions like, “Does this person have a menstrual cycle?” is important to the age/sex group still circulating estrogen. Dosages can be adjusted according to cycles to mitigate the impact of, say, estrogen on thyroid hormones.
People are unique, and that uniqueness is firmly apparent when you consider the skin of the face. Hormone imbalances, changes in diet, stress, age, and environmental factors all play a part in how our skin looks and feels. This truth is why compounded medications for dermatology must be one of the most challenging of precision medicine’s tasks. It is a task we relish: We are not pharmacists because it is easy; we are here because it’s worthwhile. Contact us for any and all of your patients’ unique needs.
