No one will understand the inconvenience and discomfort of someone who is dealing with a dermatology issue except someone with a skin condition — or, their pharmacist/healthcare provider! You will not understand unless you found yourself foregoing Summer clothes for more coverage, because it feels more comfortable that way. You will not understand unless you look forward to coat season, because it means more peace of mind. You will not understand unless you are dreading the wounds post an upcoming surgery, or find yourself checking out old scars and wondering if there is something out there good enough to take care of them. We can talk all day about accepting that skin diseases, burns, scars, and wounds are part of life, but the truth is — do we really have to accept that there is no effective solution for any of that? But, here is what we want you to know: you can (and absolutely should!) love the skin you are in, but you should also know that there are compounding solutions that can be tailored to treat, dramatically diminish, if not completely get rid of your skin condition. That solution exists! It is called PracaSil-Plus.
PracaSil-Plus is the first compounding base created for patients who want to improve the appearance of scars. Due to the base’s proprietary blend of ingredients, including silicones (in a semipermeable polymer network) and pracaxi oil (which is rich in skin-friendly fatty acids and lipids), it has been helping make a huge difference for patients with scars. PracaSil-Plus is effective to use both on new AND old scars. It adds a protective layer to the skin (think a shield) that provides long-lasting moisturization, protecting the skin’s barrier and reducing water loss. And, it is rich with skin-friendly fatty acids and lipids! This compounding base is perfect to use as treatment to a number of skin conditions, including but not limited to: ALL scars, stretch marks, diabetic wounds, burns, and it can also be used in formulation with pain relievers and steroids. What makes it even more convenient and comfortable to use, is that it is free of gluten, dyes, casein, and parabens; making it the best choice for patients with allergies or sensitivities to any of those ingredients. It is one of our most studied bases, with tons of studies and patient cases to prove its efficiency time after time. In many ways, it does not only cover dermatology, but its formulations also extend to general surgery, plastic surgery, burn and trauma, oncology, radiation therapy, pediatric medicine, sports injuries, just to name a few! It is, also, a common compounding base to use for animal wounds or scars.
How do you get your hands on a PracaSil-Plus compound, and how do you know which formula will be right for your specific case? Well, to start, it requires a prescription from your healthcare provider who would be able to determine with your compounding pharmacist which formula would be right for your skin concern. Although, we ought to mention that PracaSil-Plus is available over-the-counter as a cosmetic wellness product on its own, due to its unique combination of ingredients that help the appearance of skin even without other active ingredients. PracaSil-Plus can hold up to 10% water, but also because it is silicon-based, it helps protect wounds from bodily fluids or other external fluids. As for active ingredients that could be used with this base, the possibilities are quite endless! Your compounding pharmacist can custom-make your very own formula with the exact ingredients you need. S/he can, also, control or eliminate any ingredient that could be a cause of allergy or sensitivity. That is the beauty of compounding — you are not at the mercy of mass-produced medications just hoping they would work for your case. Compounding does not treat with a one-size-fits-all approach — each treatment is as unique as its patient.
