Treat Severe Vitiligo with Fusion Rx

Published on April 14th, 2014

When reversing the effects of vitiligo using pseudocatalase treatments is unfeasible, many patients turn to organic cream. This treatment method can be thought of as the opposite of pseudocatalase, which seeks to repigment the white patches that develop on your skin. Instead, the cream acts as a sort of bleaching agent, helping your skin attain a consistent, even tone.

Vitiligo occurs when the melanin-producing cells in your skin (melanocytes) begin to disappear. Researchers are unsure about the exact cause of this phenomenon, although it is thought to be related to the release of chemicals by the nerve endings or an autoimmune response, in which the body’s natural defense mechanism targets the melanocytes. Whatever the cause, the result of vitiligo is a series of unpigmented patches on the skin. It affects all people equally, although the condition is more noticeable on people with darker complexions.

If more than 50 percent of the surface area of your skin has become depigmented as a result of vitiligo, the use of repigmentation therapy is usually not possible. Topical creams and UV treatments designed to restore melanocytes can simply not help those with such a severe case of vitiligo. Instead, these patients are usually prescribed topical treatments, which can be used to at least make your skin tone even.

When applied a compounded topical cream is used it decreases the amount of melanin excreted by your melanocytes. In effect, it produces the same results as the vitiligo itself: a reduction in skin pigmentation.

Your prescribed cream can be applied in the privacy of your home, so you can avoid frequent doctor visits. It can take anywhere between four months and a year to achieve the results you want. Because this treatment removes melanin from your skin, it is important to always wear sunscreen and reduce your exposure to the sun, as your skin is much more prone to burning and may repigment in some areas.

Fusion Rx Compounding Pharmacy can produce a custom dosage of the cream that is designed just for your skin tone. This can help you achieve more consistent results and leave your skin smooth and even.

Get Relief from Vitiligo in No Time

Published on April 7th, 2014

If you are like millions of other people, you may be suffering from the skin depigmentation that occurs as a result of vitiligo. Although the effects of this condition are largely cosmetic, the patches of depigmentation can often be a source of embarrassment and unwanted attention. Fortunately, you can get relief from vitiligo using a specially formulated psuedocatalase cream with skin color additive adjustments made for your individual complexion.

Vitiligo is caused by free radicals in your skin cells, the most prominent of which is hydrogen peroxide. These free radicals destroy the cells in the skin that produce melanin, known as melanocytes. Melanin is the pigment that gives your skin its complexion. Higher melanin levels result in darker skin. Vitiligo gives the appearance of white patches on the skin because the melanocytes have been destroyed.

Researchers are unsure of the exact cause of vitiligo. The body’s reduced ability to fight free radicals may be caused by an autoimmune, genetic, or viral condition. In some cases, exposure to certain chemicals – like skin bleaching agents – can also cause vitiligo. Although there is no cure for the condition, pseudocatalase cream can halt and reverse the effects.

Catalases are a special group of enzymes that help the body fight free radicals. Natural catalase is too big to be absorbed through the skin, so a compounding pharmacy will produce a pseudocatalase compounded formula to get the job done. When combined with skin color additive adjustments, the results can be astounding. Calcium and short-term UVB exposure are also used to help your skin recover its lost pigmentation.

Fusion Rx Compounding Pharmacy can prepare a custom pseudocatalase cream specifically designed to help your skin recover its original color. If you want relief from vitiligo and live in the West Los Angeles area, we can make a compounded prescription just for you.

Special Bleaching Cream Preparations for Hyperpigmentation

Published on April 1st, 2014

Have you ever noticed dark spots on your skin or nails? If you are like many people, you may have developed a condition known as hyperpgimentation. Sun damage, inflammation, and any number of skin conditions can cause hyperpigmentation. To treat this darkening of the skin, your dermatologist may prescribe bleaching cream.

Bleaching creams come in a variety of custom preparations when you get them from a compounding pharmacy. The active ingredients can be combined in customized doses to meet your specific needs, and prepared in a delivery form that works perfectly for the location and nature of your hyperpigmentation. In addition to Tri-Luma Cream, custom bleaching creams can be made in any form necessary to meet your specific needs.

The main active ingredients in bleaching cream usually include hydroquinone, retinoic acid, or both. In some cases, lactic or glycolic acid may also be used. These bleaching agents can be compounded into a cream, lotion, or gel that can be easily applied to your skin.

Although there are mass produced bleaching creams available, a compounding pharmacy can prepare a cream that is designed specifically to address your issue. This may depend on the amount of melanin in your healthy skin, as well as the skin you wish to lighten. A customized dosage can deliver noticeably better results than generic preparations.

Hyperpigmentation, which results from increased melanin in the affected areas, may be caused by:

  • Addison’s Disease
  • Cushing’s Disease
  • Acanthosis Nigricans
  • Melasma
  • Linea Nigra
  • Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome
  • Smoker’s Melanosis
  • Celiac Disease
  • Cronkite-Canada Syndrome
  • Porphyria
  • Tinea Fungal Infections
  • Haemochromatosis
  • Mercury Poisoning
  • Aromatase Deficiency
  • Nelson’s Syndrome
  • Grave’s Disease

Laser treatments and exposure to certain chemicals can also cause this condition. Fortunately, Fusion Rx Compounding Pharmacy can prepare a special bleaching cream just for you, no matter what the cause.

Fight Melasma with Tri-Luma Cream

Published on March 26th, 2014

Tri-Luma Cream Many people, especially women who are pregnant or using hormone replacement therapy, have noticed dark spots on their cheeks, noses, lips, and foreheads. This condition, known as melasma, is thought to be the stimulation of melanocytes by estrogen or progesterone. Fortunately, melasma can be easily treated using a simple topical application known as Tri-Luma Cream.

Using Tri-Luma Cream, melasma can be a thing of the past in about eight weeks. This unique triple-combination topical skin therapy is easy to use and extremely effective. It is generally prescribed for moderate to severe cases of melasma. If your doctor has recommended Tri-Luma Cream for you, filling your prescription is as easy as visiting your local compounding pharmacy.

Although standard Tri-Luma Cream can be obtained in its mass-produced form, a compounding pharmacy can create a topical application that is specially formulated just for you. Here at Fusion Rx Compounding Pharmacy, we can prepare a topical cream that is precisely formulated to meet your specific needs. This ensures that you can get the best treatment possible for your melasma, rather than a one-size-fits-all treatment.

Tri-Luma Cream is comprised of three compounds designed to “bleach” the pigment out of the dark spots caused by melasma. The active ingredients include hydroquinone, retinoic acid, and triamcinolone or hydrocortisone. The percentage of hydroquinone can range from two percent all the way up to twelve percent, depending on your individual needs. That’s one of the many advantages of using a compounded pharmacy: you get prescription medications with dosages specific to your needs, in this case the amount of hyperpigmentation and your particular skin tone.

Tri-Luma Cream has been on a manufacturing delay. Luckily, Fusion Rx Compounding Pharmacy has you covered. We produce this much-needed dermatological cream right here at our West Los Angeles facility. If you are in need of this skin treatment, look no further. Fusion Rx is the only place you need to go.
