A compounding formula is a type of individualised medicine where the doctor prescribes and the pharmacist prepares a custom treatment for each patient. The Gedefaf.org portal brings together doctors and pharmacists to optimise compounding formulas through close partnerships. Every year at its scientific meeting, knowledge is shared and information exchanged on new dermatological treatments that can be made using compounding formulas, while also enriching the www.gedefaf.org portal with new content.

For her part, Dra. Lola Bou, specialist in medical-surgical dermatology and venereology in Barcelona, has a private practice in Sant Gervasi-Galvany and extensive professional expertise. Her knowledge and proven track record have seen her join a number of different national and international scientific societies and actively engage in presenting papers and conferences at more than 300 congresses. She has been a board member of the Spanish Academy of Dermatology, holding various positions over 21 years.
Her longstanding experience in trichology and hair disorders, as well as innovative treatments in this wide group of pathologies, have made her a current benchmark. Acne and sexually transmitted diseases are prominent pathologies in her practice. The area she works on most, however, is forging a close bond with patients, aware that skin diseases cause anxiety and anguish with their highly visible nature. Dr Bou is also a regular contributor to press, radio and television outlets.
