Compounded Dermatology Solutions May Help

Custom compounding traces its beginnings as far back as 754 A.D.  Although Suntree Pharmacy began in 2001, as experts in custom compounding medicines, they tailor the ingredients, strengths, combinations, and bases to provide results at advantageous prices. Now Suntree Pharmacy offers individually customized topical medications to treat all types of skin conditions.

The best way to determine one’s skin care needs is by talking to a qualified physician, usually a dermatologist. Based on a doctor’s diagnosis, products are prescribed that will provide a solution for issues like adult acne, rosacea and hyper-

Suntree Pharmacy uses bases to compound medicines. These bases include antioxidants and moisturizing properties that are compatible with a broad range of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), dermaceutical ingredients.

“We would suggest that someone looking for a skin care product first talk to a physician to get the most expert opinion and information possible,” Mike Peterson of Suntree Pharmacy explains. “Then, educate themselves on which ingredients will help treat their need. And then come to Suntree Pharmacy to get a product that has the correct ingredients.”

Common Skin Concerns and Treatments:

Hyperpigmentation – Characterized by a darkening of an area of skin caused by the overproduction of pigment or melanin. It is relatively common and harmless, but for cosmetic reasons, it is a nuisance to those who have it. There are several courses of treatment available to lighten skin.

Rosacea – Redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead. Small visible blood vessels on the face. Ingredients reduce inflammatory lesions.

Adult acne – Seeing a dermatologist will help identify the type of acne you have and the best ingredients for treatment. Benzoyl peroxide is a common ingredient to treat acne.

Wrinkles – Vitamin C is critical for the body and plays an important role in maintaining healthy, resilient skin.  One of the most powerful functions of Vitamin C is its role in the production of collagen.  Taking vitamin C through a supplement or food is beneficial, but to specifically target signs of aging, topical vitamin C is best.  In fact, applying vitamin C to the skin can be 20 times more effective than taking it orally.

Stress, hormonal changes, diet and physical activity all impact skin appearance. “It is important for each of us to find out and know what optimizes our health and only allow for those influences in our lives,” Mike explains. “For uncontrollable things like hormone changes, avail yourself of the information that will help you re-institute balance.”
