Just as every face has its own distinctive features,
every person has his or her own skin type.
While some may be willing to buy commercially-‐available products, a significant amount of time is required for those treatments to become effective. Some patients with sensitive skin may not even be able to comfortably tolerate commercial medications.
Archway Apothecary understands the importance of treating a dermatological issue in a timely manner.
We will prepare specifically made medications: Patients needing immediate results may use our topical emollient cream that absorbs quickly into the skin; those that have sensitive skin and do not respond well to topical creams, ointments, or powders may choose to have their medicine in capsule or lollipop form.
