A celebrity dermatologist was arrested and charged this week for falsifying prescriptions for powerful painkillers.

Dr. Cheryl Karcher entered a plea of not guilty in criminal court on Wednesday.

She is facing a number of charges including drug possession, falsifying business records and fraud.

She was released without bail.

Prosecutors allege she used her own patient's information to create fraudulent prescriptions and fill them on 15 occasions between 2010 and 2012.

Karcher, who practices out of an office on the Upper East Side, frequently appears on TV and in magazine articles discussing cosmetic procedures and treatments.

She is due back in court on August.
