Clear Complexions Rx Specialty Products
The products below are available by prescription only. However, it is still possible to obtain prescription status products via contact with our office. For example, people have used clindamycin for many years; via a telephone re-evaluation, it is possible to obtain the product knowing that the patient is very experienced in its use. This would be true for any of the products below. Contact the Clear Complexions Rx office at 847-843-0200 for further information.
Clindamycin Phosphate 1%
Hydroquinone 12% Cream
Retin A Gel .1%
It's very logical for Clear Complexions Rx to carry Retin A in both cream and gel vehicles on both its website and in-office inventory. Dr. James Fulton who originated the Face Up/Clear Complexions concept, had co-invented Retin A during his time with Dr. Albert Kligman at University of Pennsylvania. In fact, Dr. Fulton actually made Retin A in our early years in the basement of the Oak Brook Terrace office. Nothing in the lexicon of dermatology products crosses over more areas of use in both cosmetic and medical dermatology than Retin A. Retin A is used all over the world, however at the time of this writing, in the United States prescription Retin A medications/products have a wide range of pricing, often being very expensive. However, the company that markets one Retin A product, Altreno lotion, has set a $115/130 price as a constant for insurance or non-insurance patients. Our Retin A, as seen above, is $53. Note that our extra strong hydroquinone for dyschromia or issues of discoloration now comes in a tube. Although Retin A and hydroquinone are prescription products, we don't want that to get in the way of your using them, if needed and/or beneficial, and you opt to get them here. Please call our office at 847-843--0200 for further information on purchase of Clear Complexions' specialty prescription products and their management accordingly.
We also carry the Vivant line of products. Contact our office 847-843-0200 for a Vivant catalogue, ordering or further information about the Vivant products.
