We are interested to offer our compounding services to your patients Compounding of medications has allowed us to customize a formulation, to best suit a patient’s need, as per the physician’s request.

For dermatologists we have recently compounded a few Rx’s which are as follows: we have the capacity to compound an endless variety of formulations that meet the needs of physicians and patients. Please call 1-800-231-8905 with any questions. This information is not an attempt to solicit business, but merely a response to some of the most frequently asked questions regarding the compounding of medications

Bleaching Creams – Hydroquinone + Glycollic acid + Retinoic acid + Hydrocortisone. Hydroquinonelightens the color of the skin areas to which it is applied by killing off the melanin making cells (known as the melanocyte). It is the only FDA approved product for bleaching. There are two well-known products with bleaching mechanisms effective on the skin, hydroquinone and kojic acid. OTC preparations have 2%; Commercial RX preparations have unto 4%. For Physicians looking to use higher percentage such as 6 to 8% of HQ and may be 4% of Kojic acid, they rely on compounding Pharmacists.

Combination bleaching creams. Commercially HQ% is available by itself. Many Physicians want to prescribe a combination of HQ, Retinoic acid and Triamcinolone. One of our popular combinations is HQ 4% + Retinoic acid 0.1% + Triamcinolone 0.025%. The obvious advantage of compounding this is to provide the patient with 1 cream, which has all three ingredients.

Hard to find Injectables – such as Celestone, Dexamethasone, Kenalog, Depo Medol, Wydase. Many of these are on manufacturer back order, but can still be custom compounded in certain situations. Please call us for more details.
