Optimizing the Success of Wound Healing and Scar Reduction
The wound healing process involves a series of intricate and programmed phases that result in the formation of a scar. Many factors can disrupt one or more phases of this process, resulting in impaired wound healing and excessive scarring. One of the biggest challenges in pharmaceutical therapy for wounds and scars is that they are each characterized by a unique and complex set of conditions. Compounding pharmacists play a vital role in developing formulations that optimize wound healing success and scar reduction by combining carefully chosen ingredients in the required strength and dosage form in order to deliver customized therapies suited to individual needs.
In this webinar, participants will review the different types of wounds and scars, the stages of wound healing, and the various disruptive factors that impede proper healing.
