PracaSil™-Plus - The Easy Choice for Skin Clearing

PracaSil™-Plus is a great, natural choice for treatment for all types of scars and skin conditions. Uptown Pharmacy is one of a few exclusive pharmacies that carries this unique topical anhydrous silicone base. PracaSil™-Plus can dramatically improve the appearance of old scars, new scars, surgical scars, stretch marks, burn scars, acne scars, or any skin condition that would need barrier protection (like diaper rash). It is available without a prescription. It can also be combined with active pharmaceutical ingredients to compound a custom formula with your doctor’s prescription.

PracaSil™-Plus contains Pracaxi Oil, which comes from the pracaxi tree, found in the Amazon rainforest. Pracaxi Oil is rich in beneficial fatty acids and has historically been used for a variety of medicinal and cosmetic purposes. It has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antifungal properties.

In a recent study, 74.3% of PracaSil™-Plus users showed improvement in scar pigment intensity and 100% of subject volunteers showed an improvement in scar texture and smoothness. Several case studies have reported the effectiveness of PracaSil™-Plus. In one study, applying this wonder-base twice daily in combination with a sterile bacitracin ointment helped progress the clearing of an infant’s facial second degree burn significantly. In another, a 40-year-old athlete was instructed to use PracaSil™-Plus combined with mupirocin (an anti- bacterial cream), to an area of injury that resulted in major scraping of multiple layers of the skin. After only 11 days of application, the skin was shown to heal completely.

Here at Uptown Pharmacy we offer several unique and personalized services, such as compounding and exemplary customer care. We take pride in our products, and spend time researching the best available ingredients.
