Our Products

The Orentreich Medical Group is unique among dermatology practices in the Upper East Side and all of Manhattan having a full-time compounding pharmacist on staff.  This enables the doctors to custom make both prescription and non-prescription skin treatment products, exclusively for their patients, for problems such as aging skin, rashes, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and many more.  This is an important treatment adjunct for our specialized skin care treatments, serving the communities of the Upper East Side, Park Avenue, Midtown, Central Park, and Upper West Side, and all of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Long Island. 

 

Dr. Norman Orentreich worked with the Estée Lauder cosmetics company to create Clinique, the first over-the-counter skin care line, which premiered in 1968. The formulas picked for the Clinique skin care line are the very ones he regularly prescribed to his patients. Today the doctors at the Orentreich Medical Group continue to create new topical formulations and regularly improve existing ones. Custom compounded topical medications and skin care products can be formulated for those patients who cannot tolerate certain ingredients. This page features just some of the products available to our patients. Please contact us to find out more about our complete selection, or call 212.606.0812 for product refills.
