11 Apr Anti-Aging Compounding
Recently there has been an increased interest in compounded anti-aging medications including topical medications, hormone replacement therapies and more. Compounding pharmacies such as Absolute Pharmacy can create customized anti-aging medications in a wide range of different delivery formats including creams, gels, lotions, balms, ointments, and more. Topical anti-aging medications can improve skin health, restoring it to a more youthful appearance and hormones can restore decreased crucial hormone levels.
Compounded topical medications can be used to treat a wide range of different skin conditions and reduce the effects of aging on the skin that most people are familiar with: wrinkles, lines, a loss of elasticity, and spots. Compounded anti-aging medications and topical treatments are usually far more effective at treating aging effects compared to commercial medications because they are customized based on the patient’s needs, and dosage levels are carefully selected.
Benefits of compounded anti-aging medications
Customized anti-aging medications are designed specifically for the individual patient, and the delivery method is also customized based on the patient’s preferences. The dosage of the anti-aging prescriptions is carefully selected by a medical practitioner. Through various types of diagnostic testing, the proper anti-aging medication dosage can be determined and then custom created at a compounding pharmacy.
In the many cases, the compounded anti-aging treatment may work far better than a commercial treatment, and patients will often prefer compounded treatments instead of commercial prescriptions because of their effectiveness. Anti-aging medications can be created to treat several different aging effects, and the benefit of using a compounding pharmacy is that the medication can be adjusted as the patient’s needs change over time.
Skin conditions that compounded anti-aging medications can treat
The environment, sun and wind damage, pollution, soaps and chemicals, stress, and poor nutrition can cause skin problems as a person ages, and every individual’s skin ages differently. Some people have fewer aging effects on their skin as they get older, and other people have more. Many of the forces that affect skin over time cannot be easily controlled such as sun damage or pollution, but there are ways to reverse this type of skin damage with compounded anti-aging skin treatments.
Anti-aging creams and other anti-aging medications for skin can be created at compounding pharmacies with specific ingredients that are carefully selected by a medical professional to not cause any additional skin irritation or allergies while treating the causes of aging.
Compounded anti-aging medications can treat a wide range of aging effects including irritation, rashes, age spots, blemishes, inflammation, dry skin and more. Anti-aging creams may contain vitamin E, B vitamins and other vitamins and minerals, as well as active ingredients that immediately improve skin quality such as retinoic acid. Each anti-aging cream can be customized with ingredients for the particular individual.
The concentrations of the ingredients can also be carefully controlled, which is important because many commercial products have lower concentrations of active and inactive ingredients, making them less effective. A properly prepared compounded anti-aging cream will many times perform better than commercial products and may have a better result on patient’s skin because it is custom designed specifically for them. Side effects if any will also be minimal compared to commercial preparations that may have ingredients that cause irritation.
Almost everyone can benefit from anti-aging medications at some point
At some point, everyone will experience the effects of aging on their skin and body and compounded anti-aging treatments offer the most innovative and modern way of treating aging effects. Compounded anti-aging treatments can help restore normal hormone levels that begin to decline for both men and women when they reach their late 30s and 40s.
Men begin to experience testosterone declines as early as age 30, and women experience progesterone declines in their late 30s to early 40s. Both men and women can utilize compounded hormone treatments to reduce the impact of hormone losses and maintain a youthful body.
Many of the effects of aging cannot be prevented, for instance, the damage that the sun and pollution caused to the skin is just one aging effect that will occur over time for almost everyone. Anti-aging skin treatments can utilize many different nutrients including CoQ-10, green tea extract, and other nutrients reduce the impact of skin damage over time.
Bleaching creams can be prepared using active ingredients such as hydroquinone, steroids or retinoic acid which can reduce hyper-pigmentation. A major benefit of using a compounding pharmacy is that the percentages of each active ingredient can be controlled based on the patient’s needs. Using a compounding pharmacy is simply the best way to guarantee that a skin care treatment is perfectly designed for an individual because every person’s skin is unique.
Anti-aging checkups can determine what anti-aging treatments are needed
An anti-aging checkup from an experienced and licensed medical practitioner can help a person determine which specific anti-aging treatments and medications that they may benefit from. Typically a full evaluation will be done of the patient’s current health status, and tests can verify if they have allergies, hormonal imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, or other health problems that may be causing aging effects.
After the checkup, the medical provider can create a customized treatment program that will help the patient restore the hormone levels and cellular environment closer to what it was in their late 20s. A compounding pharmacy such as Absolute Pharmacy can create the medications used for a person’s anti-aging treatment program on a regular basis, and the cost will usually be around the same as equivalent commercial preparations.
Those who are interested in anti-aging compounded medications and treatments should speak to a medical professional that has experience with prescribing compounded treatments and can offer a diagnosis. The benefits of compounded anti-aging medications can be tremendous and life changing for those who suffer from some of the more significant effects of aging, particularly the effects of hormone losses.
Energy levels can improve dramatically, nutritional deficiencies can be corrected, and youthful hormone levels can be maintained. When properly executed, anti-aging treatment programs are an effective way to reduce susceptibility to many of the effects of aging, but treatments can only be administered by licensed medical professionals, and the compounded medications should be created by a qualified sterile pharmacy by licensed pharmacists.
The licensed pharmacists at Absolute Pharmacy can create customized compounded medications for many anti-aging treatments, and the medications are created in a sterile cleanroom to ensure purity and safety. For more information on Absolute Pharmacy’s compounded medications click here.
