Help for Wounds, Scars & Stretch Marks

February 27, 2013


Recent advancements in topical formulations have resulted in preparations that may reduce inflammation and scar tissue, and can also help with healing of wounds, burns, and skin cuts or ulcerations. Depending on the problem, a preparation can be selected that will form a protective film over the skin, maintain a moist environment to optimize healy, or that contains glycosides and flavonoids with potential germicidal and anti-inflammatory properties. Medications can be added to novel proprietary bases to help reduce the buildup of scar tissue which may improve the appearance of old or new scars, keloids, or stretch marks (which can result from sudden weight gain or weight loss, as well as pregnancy). In addition, we can compound medications such as numbing creams, skin-whitening formulas, facial masks and acne preparations. Ask our pharmacist for more information.
