THE COMPOUNDING PLACE

Scars

A scar and a hand

Scars are caused by the formation of fibrous tissue that replaces our normal skin in the healing process after an injury. Many things other than injuries can cause scars including burns or other trauma, such as surgery. There are many different types of scars including: keloid, contracture, hypertrophic, and acne. While basically everyone has a scar here and there, some individuals may experience significant distress when it comes to their scars. Coast to Coast compounding acknowledges that not only should our patients feel good on the inside, but they should also feel good on the outside. To help achieve this, our compassionate compounding pharmacists are more than happy to work with you and your dermatologist in order to help you achieve the skin you’ve always wanted.

Types of scars

Scar Compounding

  1. At Coast to Coast Compounding we allow the dermatologist to broaden their prescribing ability to create a perfectly personalized medication to suit your needs. A compounded scar cream can help to soften, flatten, lighten, and smooth overall appearance of both new and old scars. 
  2. Keloid and hypertrophic scars can be caused by the body’s overproduction of collagen in the healing process. Our talented compounding pharmacists can create a personalized medication to fit your needs by incorporating certain ingredients that can inhibit collagen overproduction. 
  3. Contact us to speak with one of our knowledgeable compounding pharmacists. We welcome your call and will make every effort to meet your needs with the help of your dermatologist.
