Meeting Your Dermatology Compounding Needs
We use the latest equipment and techniques to prepare therapies for your every dermatological need. Whether your medication requires a spray, powder, and oral dosage form, know that we are the team to do it.
What We Offer
Providing custom medications for many dermatological conditions, our services help ensure you a positive therapeutic outcome. We also work with providers who prescribe specific medication forms that fit your treatment plan.
These specific forms prove effective, because along with having the right dosage strength to best manage your symptoms, they simplify how and when you use your medication. Even if you need a specific form with a specific chemical change, such as being non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, oil-free, paraben-free, or petrolatum-free, you can get it through Stanley Pharmacy Compounding Center.
Dermatology Conditions and How We Can Help Them
This contagious skin infection causes an itchy rash from microscopic-sized mites burrowing under your skin.
Just as they can treat head lice, oral or topical ivermectin can also treat scabies. Patients have also used permethrin in cream or lotion form to treat scabies.
This condition results from your body producing skin cells too quickly. It causes redness and itching and requires a medication to help treat these symptoms. Clobetasol propionate (0.05%) has proven effective as an ointment and cream but also as a spray, foam, lotion, or shampoo.
Also called chronic kidney disease-associated pruritus (CKD-associated pruritus), uremic pruritus is common among those with end-stage kidney disease. In fact, up to half of all patients with this disease have it.
Uremic pruritus causes itchy skin that a 1% pramoxine hydrochloride lotion has proven to work well for. Applied twice daily, this lotion is a safe, convenient, and effective way to decrease itchiness for those with this condition.
Patients need topical anesthesia for many things, including injections, suturing, and wound cleaning. Topical anesthetics give physicians a safe, simple way to numb patients’ skin before a procedure.
The combination of benzocaine, lidocaine, and tetracaine (“BLT”) in gel form has proven to work well even for cosmetic procedures. Gel form lidocaine, adrenaline, and tetracaine (“LAT”) has also proven effective for facial and scalp lacerations. Moreover, BLT and LAT gels give physicians the option of using a non-controlled substance for patient pain relief.
Scarring and Keloids
A keloid is raised scar tissue that forms over a skin injury when the injury heals. They can feel rubbery, look shiny, and range in color from pink and red to black and dark brown.
Along with being unsightly, keloids can be itchy and moderately painful. However, compounded scar therapy medications can relieve this itchiness and pain while also smoothing the scar.
Topical medications can include a mix of caffeine, vitamin A, coconut, corticosteroids, and antihistamines. Together, these can help treat the keloid symptoms for a positive therapeutic outcome.
Often mistaken for acne, rosacea causes redness, visible blood vessels, and bumps or pimples on your face. This condition is common in middle-aged women with light skin and can flare up for weeks at a time. Patients have benefited from a topical treatment of silymarin (milk thistle) and methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) to help soothe rosacea symptoms.
Caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), plantar warts are small growths that develop on the bottom of your feet. They often feel like a callus and may cause discomfort as you walk.
A topical 5% 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) cream has shown to remove all plantar warts in 19 out of 20 patients who follow a 12-week treatment plan twice daily. This makes the 5-FU option a safe, effective way to treat this condition for a positive therapeutic outcome.
Affecting up to six million women in the U.S., this condition causes dark patches or blotches on your face. Although it is painless and does not involve other health risks, it may last for decades.
Those with melasma have used topical tranexamic acid (TXA) for its safety profile and whitening effects on stubborn dark spots. Our team can provide this medication to help improve your skin health.
Pyogenic Granuloma (PG)
Pyogenic granuloma (PG) is a noncancerous, often-red skin growth. It is most common among children and adolescents.
Patients with PG have used topical propranolol (1%) ointment with positive results. These results included no side effects and a better outcome when treated early.
Nail infections have many causes. Most commonly, bacteria or fungi get under the area where the nail meets the skin. This can cause redness, swelling, and tenderness.
Topical medications have proven most effective for nail infections. Our team can provide a medication that helps fight infection while also supporting the healing of any damaged areas.
This infection develops from the molluscum contagiosum (MC) virus. It spreads easily and appears as small, painless growths that can come up anywhere on your body.
A 5% potassium hydroxide (KOH) in liquid form applied twice daily to the growths has worked well for patients with this infection.
A head louse is a tiny insect that feeds on human blood, most often blood from the scalp. Lice range in color from gray to brown and spread directly from someone with a lice infestation.
Along with herbal forms, ivermectin has proven to be effective against head lice. Our team can compound it into a topical form for safe, easy use for children and adults.
When applied to your skin, chemical peels can improve the look of your skin, reduce lines and wrinkles, and even treat acne or dark spots (melasma).
Our team can provide kojic acid, glycolic acid, and trichloroacetic acid (either together or individually) for melasma therapy and lentigo. Patients use these in therapies to get a more even skin tone and better skin health.
This common fungal infection starts between your toes as a scaly rash that itches and burns and then spreads to the top, bottom, or sides of your foot.
Our team can help with antifungal therapy using either creams, sprays, or powders. Together with ibuprofen, azole antifungals help slow the spread of fungi and the inflammation that often comes with it.
Affecting over 6 million Americans, alopecia is an autoimmune disorder that often causes hair loss on the scalp and other parts of the body.
There is no cure for this condition, but patients have used lotion or cream-form melatonin to protect hair follicles and support hair cell growth.
Most common among teenagers, acne forms when oil and dead skin cells clog your hair follicles.
Patients have found topical spironolactone (5%) gel to work well for acne and oil production. This has been especially true for women with hormonal causes of acne. Our team can work with your provider to compound an acne medication that fits your treatment plan.
