Pavilion Compounding Pharmacy has been compounding dermatological preparations for over two decades. Our experience and access to thousands of bases, chemicals, and drugs provides treatment options for many skin conditions.
Pavilion compounding pharmacists have the ability to compound a complete range of topical compounds including foams, ointments, gels, creams, lotions, lip balms and solutions. Choosing an appropriate dermatological delivery option can be the difference between successful treatments outcomes for various skin conditions. Each type of base has characteristics unique to the preparation and we can help select, with your practitioner, the best option for your condition..
Formulation of preparations requires having the proper equipment and technique. Our compounding lab is equipped with all the necessary tools to compound a pharmaceutically elegant product including an electronic mortar and pestle (Unguator), and an ointment mill which reduces particle sizes and provides a smooth final product.
Below is a short list of many of the most commonly requested dermatological preparations. While this is certainly not a comprehensive list, this represents a good starting point.
Bleaching Creams also known as Tri-Hydro-Ret
These usually consist of hydroquinone + retinoic acid + triamcinolone,hydrocortisone,or various other steroids. Pavilion Compounding Pharmacy has 100’s of variations of this popular skin whitener. Percentages of hydroquinone range from 2% up to over 12%. We can also include kojic acid, green tea, and others depending on your doctor’s requirements.
For those of you looking for Dr. Isaac Willis’ popular Tri-Hydro-Ret formulations, our compounding pharmacists have obtained the formulas and have been making this for several years. We mourn the loss of Dr. Willis and acknowledge the contribution Dr. Willis made to dermatology. We compound all formulas including Trihydroret in regular and extra strengths. Another popular bleaching agent, Tri-Luma®, currently on manufacturing delay, is also compounded with the exact active ingredients.
For this area of dermatology your prescriber has tremendous options. Most common are compounds using retinoic acid, clindamycin, erythromycin, benzoyl peroxide, azelaic acid, steroids, dapsone,and clotrimazole. All of the above can be custom blended for your specific type of acne. We can work closely with your dermatologist to formulate your preparation. Many times the cost of our compound is far below the commercial products on the market. Call for our prices and ability to include multiple drugs in one compound. If your doctor if looking for a non-antibiotic acne treatment a suggestion is to use a niacinamide/lipoic acid cream or gel. We have had a lot of success with a 4% Niacinamide combined with Ascorbic acid for acne relief. Don't forget the Probiotics in your acne therapy, many times, including the probiotic is the key for helping acne. At Pavilion Compounding Pharmacy we have our favorites so give us a call for a FREE acne consultation and recommendation.
Steroids are the most commonly used in various percentages and potencies of the active drug. With pediatric patients we have seen very good results from a cyancobalamin (vitamin B-12) cream combined with oil of evening primrose. If you want to avoid the use of steroids for your child, you will be amazed at the healing power of the above formulation. Again, introducing Probiotics, reducing dairy and sugar are just as important to helping with many skin conditions. A healthy Gastro Tract is very important to the overall health of the skin.
These include benzocaine, lidocaine, prilocaine, tetracaine or BLT,in many different concentrations and forms. When your procedure calls for a block on pain we can provide the necessary compound. Different bases can be used to enhance penetration and also to work better with laser therapy. Ask our pharmacists which would be the best type of base for your procedure.
