Dermatology is the specialty of medicine that treats and diagnoses skin disorders and diseases. And since skin is the largest organ of the human body, there's a lot of ground to cover.
Dermatological problems include more than just acne. They affect people of all ages and may impact a patient's quality of life. Oftentimes, skin disorders are difficult to treat and recur over time. While traditional treatment can be effective, many patients may find more success with individualized, compounded medication therapy.
Like traditional therapies, compounded medications can help treat many skin-related problems including acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, warts, fungal and viral infections, wrinkles, sun damaged skin. Essential Pharmacy Comounding's state-of-the-art equipment allows us to create medications that absorb quickly and easily into the skin and often include higher concentrations of active ingredients than traditional medications. We are always working to develop new vehicles that allow compounded medications to be dispensed in appealing gels and cream
