Compounded pain creams are specifically designed to target and treat the site of pain with customizable formulations while avoiding many of the complications common to other pain treatment methods. Pain creams provide a flexible, convenient, and effective solution for a variety of pain-related conditions.
Pain creams are designed to administer high concentrations of pain medication directly onto the site of pain for targeted relief. Furthermore, our pharmacists work with doctors to create a custom formulation, designed to meet a patient’s unique needs. As a result, our formulations offer the combined benefits of precise dosing, personalized treatment, and the combined effect of multiple ingredients working together for optimal pain relief.
Because our pain formulations are applied topically, they provide powerful pain medication where it is needed most. As a result, pain creams are less likely to interact with other medications being taken and cause fewer GI side effects than other pain medications. Finally, since most pain creams do not contain narcotics, the risk of dependence and addiction is virtually eliminated.
Compounded scar gels are designed to soften, smooth, flatten, lighten, and dramatically improve the overall appearance of both old and new scars.
Scar gels, while improving the appearance of preexisting scars, can also help prevent scarring disorders, including hypertrophic and keloidal scarring. Both hypertrophic and keloidal scars are the result of excessive collagen produced in the healing process. Due to the excess scar tissue, scars will appear raised, thick, and darker than typical scars. While hypertrophic scars remain confined to the area of the original would, keloids extend into the surrounding tissue. Scar gels are designed to prevent the excessive collagen production which causes these disorders.
PracaSil-Plus is the silicone base used in our scar gels. It is specifically designed for use in scar and skin treatments. PracaSil-Plus reduces inflammation and buildup of scar tissue. It is also designed to create a resilient film on the skin, so that your scar receives as much exposure to the medication as possible.
PracaSil-Plus contains Pracaxi Oil, which is derived from the Pracaxi tree, found in the Amazon rainforest. Pracaxi Oil is rich in beneficial fatty acids and has historically been used for a variety of medicinal and cosmetic purposes. It can have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. It is also used in hair and skin products to condition and smooth.
Psoriasis compounds combine several active ingredients into a special type of Vitamin D cream or scalp suspension designed to clear up the patches and reduce the itching and irritation associated with psoriasis.
Psoriasis is a common, chronic, relapsing/remitting, immune-mediated skin disease characterized by red, scaly patches, papules, and plaques, which usually itch. The skin lesions seen in psoriasis may vary in severity from minor localized patches to complete body coverage. The causes of psoriasis are not fully understood. It is not purely a skin disorder and can have a negative impact on many organ systems. Psoriasis develops when the immune system mistakes a normal skin cell for a pathogen and sends out faulty signals that cause overproduction of new skin cells. It is not contagious.
Psoriasis compounds are made into either a cream or scalp suspension. The compounds combine fluticasone (a corticosteroid), salicylic acid (a keratolytic), and calcipotriene (a type of Vitamin D). The combination is used to treat the raised red patches and silver colored scaly patches associated with psoriasis. The scaly patches are dead cells that would normally fall off your skin without you noticing. Psoriasis compounds work by reducing the amount of cells your skin makes along with reducing the itching and irritation associated with psoriasis.
Compounded wound care gels are specially designed to protect wounds and aid the body’s healing process for quicker recovery and reduced risk of infection or other complications.
One of the secrets behind the effectiveness of wound care gels is Spira-Wash Gel, the base used in all of our wound care formulations. Spira-Wash is specifically designed to aid the body’s healing process by acting as a protective barrier against the air, blocking out potentially harmful microorganisms and environmental toxins. Along with guarding against contaminants, Spira-Wash also creates a moist environment for the wound to heal in, which has been proven to speed healing by up to 50%. And unlike many comparable products, which protect the wound but also inhibit proper washing, Spira-Wash is water-washable, making cleaning and debridement of the wound as easy as possible.
Spira-Wash Gel contains organic Meadowsweet Extract, which can potentially provide antioxidant and additional healing properties. Meadowsweet Extract may also act as an anti-inflammatory and antiseptic. Research also suggests that Meadowsweet Extract possesses antimicrobial properties.
