    Physician's care

    If you are under the care of a dermatologist, only he or she can best advise you of the appropriate products that would work best with your prescribed treatments. We recommend that you ask your dermatologist about the use of Clinique products, (most dermatologists are familiar with our product line) to determine what is appropriate for you. Once you have obtained this information, we would be happy to confirm which products meet those specifications.
