Anti-Aging and Skin Care
Ageing is an unavoidable natural phenomenon but the visible effects of ageing can be mitigated by using specially formulated medicinal products that have the ability to decelerate the ageing process. Several active ingredients can be combined using compounding medicine for maximal beneficial effects to address ageing related issues such as wrinkles and fine lines.
Compounding Pharmacy solutions can help with symptoms of aging by synthesizing customized solutions for topical creams, gels, and serum. Anti-aging medications can improve skin health for a youthful appearance. Compounded topical medications can be used to minimize the observable effects of aging i.e. wrinkles, fine lines, loss of skin elasticity, and age spots. Compounding can be especially beneficial to standardize the dosage and eliminate the use of allergenic compounds by substitution of allergenic compounds present in commercial preparations with hypoallergenic compounds.
We provide compounding solutions using high quality ingredients including Estrogen (estrogen depletion causes thinning and wrinkling of skin), vitamin E (for antioxidative properties), Retinol Palmitate (to accelerate the production of collagen), Melatonin (to reduce the damage to skin from UV radiation) and DHEA (a natural steroid hormone that serves as a hydrating agent).
We provide anti-ageing cream-based solutions with active ingredients including Estrogen, Vitamin E, Retinol Film (uses a stable form of Vitamin A and to prevent skin damage from UV radiation), Sodium Hyaluronate (for improved skin elasticity by promoting collagen synthesis), and the use of collagen hydrolysates to improve skin regeneration. Other ingredients include green tea extracts and CoQ-10 that have the ability to decrease the skin damage.
Benefits of compounded anti-aging medications:
Our customized anti-aging medications are designed keeping the patient in the forefront. The medication delivery method id also customized depending on patient preference along with the optimized dosage prescribed by the practitioner.
Specific skin conditions addressed by compounded anti-aging medications:
Compounded anti-aging medications can help with skin conditions such as skin irritation, rashes, age spots, blemishes, skin inflammation, dryness etc. Anti-aging creams may contain vitamin E, B vitamins and other vitamins and minerals, as well as active ingredients such as retinoic acid which have an immediate effect on the improvement in skin quality. With compounding medicine, each formulated anti-aging cream can be customized to patient requirements. Compounding medicine also provides the possibility to use higher concentrations of active ingredients, giving better results when used over a period of time. Side effects if any are also minimal when compared to commercially available preparations.
Bleaching creams can be prepared using active ingredients such as hydroquinone, steroids or retinoic acid which have a reduced risk of causing hyper-pigmentation of the skin. One of the major positive factors for compounding medicine is the ability to control the concentration of each active ingredient in the formulation to guarantee individualized treatment for each patient.
How does compounding work?
Compounding pharmacies can produce unique dosage forms based on patient preferences and/or restrictions. Examples include dye-free, preservative-free, alcohol-free, and/or sugar-free forms of medications.
Many compounds are specialized medication combinations or liquid or cream forms of products that are not otherwise commercially available.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Compounding?
In general, compounding is a practice in which a licensed pharmacist, upon a physicians’ prescription order, combines, mixes, or alters ingredients of a drug to create a medication tailored to the needs of an individual patient.
A health care provider will prescribe a compounded drug when commercially available products do not meet your needs. Preparing a paste or suspension from crushed tablets is one example of compounding. Likewise, adding flavoring to medication is also compounding.
Is a prescription required?
Yes, a prescription order from a physician is required for the pharmacist to compound your medication to meet your specific needs.
Are compounded prescriptions covered by insurance?
Some health insurance plans cover compounded medications. Check with your insurance company to see if you have coverage. Many pharmacies are able to bill insurance companies directly for compounded medications. If unable to bill your insurance company, you may submit a claim form to your insurance company to reimburse you directly. Depending on the nature of the product, these medications may be just as affordable as your conventional prescriptions.
How does my medical provider play a role in compounding?
Many medical providers are aware of the practice of compounding, and they may work with your local compounding pharmacy to provide the right medication for you. Talk to your pharmacist or doctor today if you feel that a compounded prescription may be a better way to manage a health condition for you or your family member.
Does a compounding pharmacist have special training?
All pharmacists are taught in pharmacy school how to properly compound medications, and many compounding pharmacists have advanced training after pharmacy school graduation. Compounding pharmacists utilize their unique pharmacy skills, knowledge, and creativity to work with you and your prescriber to prepare medication in a dosage form that has been customized to your particular needs.
I always have outstanding and professional services and a helpful and informative bunch that really cares about the wellbeing of their customers thank for all you do to make my experience very relaxing.
This pharmacy is just excellent. After being a Walgreens customer for over 10 years I am just not used to this kind of service. They treat you like a person and are always kind and courteous. This has been a very stress-free transition. Thank you Bay Life Pharmacy!
This a great pharmacy with a knowledgeable and friendly staff. They are helpful and will honor valid insurance. Medications are expensive no matter where you go. That is why we as responsible adults find insurance for them.
When I called Bay Life Pharmacy everyone was very courteous, helpful and friendly. Megan went out of her way to clarify all of my doubts and was very prompt in returning my calls. I was pleasantly surprised to see her promptly deliver my medications to my home. Great customer service!
