Acne

Acne vulgaris is an inflammatory, often long-term skin disease that may cause pore inflammation and unsightly scarring. The condition occurs when hair follicles become blocked due to dead skin cells and skin oils — often worsened by the heightened growth of the bacteria Propionibacterium acnes. Acne sufferers tend to peak in adolescence, largely resulting from over-production of skin oils.

Conventional treatments of both prescription and over-the- counter treatments involve anti-bacterials, oil secretion reduction, and pore unclogging. Most preparations involve one or two components, but we are also able to compound customized multi-component preparations per your physician. Our unique bases also serve additional functions such as clearing up skin blemishes as well as healing new or old scars.

Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic condition featuring a red blushing of the facial cheeks, with some cases involving the nose (enlarged), eyes (bloodshot), chin, and forehead. The skin may also present with larger blood vessels, resulting in a rough skin surface. Demographics show that most sufferers are aged 30-50 years old.

Presently, Rosacea has no known cure, but it is believed to arise from both genetic and environmental factors including family history, having fairer skin, skin mites, and possibly sun exposure.

Patients are advised to avoid spicy foods, limit direct sun exposure, high temperatures, and reduce stress — although triggers are strongly patient-specific.

The following sections offer detailed information for some common questions and different elements of rosacea.

Current treatment options include Metronidazole (both an anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial), Vitamin A (anti-inflammatory), Sodium Sulfacetamide and Sulfur (relief of redness and inflammation), as well as other treatments such as laser therapy.

Our lab is able to formulate unique compounds for Rosacea as well as including other components such as Niacinamide and Biotin, and incorporating them into bases which nourish and soothe the inflamed skin.

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory immune skin condition that involves red elevated patches and flaking silvery scales. Psoriatic lesions can be painful, itchy and vary in size. Psoriatic patches (also called plaques) are also dry, flaky, and may bleed. Commonly afflicted sites include elbows, knees, scalp, chest and lower back.

The disease is usually seen in adults, and affects both genders equally. Although its causes remain unclear, genetic family history is pronounced risk factor, with a hypothesis being that an overactive immune system triggers inflammatory skin cell growth and subsequent hyperactive shedding.

Common triggers that cause psoriatic flare ups include infections, skin injuries, weather, tobacco use, stress, certain medications and more.

With a prescription, we offer compounded psoriasis relief solutions which can include medications that calm the immune system down, and offer a cooling sensation. We mix these compounds in a proprietary base derived from natural boswellic acid, avenanthramides from oats, and phosphatidylglycerol — all which nourish and replenish the lipid bilayers of the skin to restore the skin’s natural barrier and prevent further water loss.

Eczema

Eczema is a long-term recurrent inflammation of the skin, resulting in red skin sores and itchiness. The disease has a strong genetic immune component, and tends to occur more frequently in families with prior histories of eczema, asthma, or hay fever. Bouts of the disease tend to flare up periodically in response to various environmental triggers, and it has been hypothesized that a hypersensitive immune system may be a contributing factor.

Rashes tend to appear on the faces and scalps of infants, while older children and adults have them in the skin folds of various appendage joints and the neck.

Most eczema sufferers begin to experience symptoms before the age of 5 years, with symptoms fading with age; however 10-30% of children will have dry and irritable skin throughout their lives.

Environmental stresses that are thought to trigger flare-ups include stress, certain fabrics, strong detergents, sweating, dust mites, smoke, pollen, and many others.

A healthy skin barrier is crucial to preventing flare-ups: a broken skin barrier allows irritants to pass through the skin into the tissue, and thus trigger immune flare-ups more easily. To reduce the urge to itch in young children, the skin can be cooled with a damp towel, as well as anti-inflammatory medications such as steroidal creams. Regular baths and moisturizers are also key.
