Dr. Susan Lin is my go-to expert in aesthetics, botox and fillers. She is what I call a "master practitioner".. someone who spends thousands of hours working on her craft... she an authority on the science of aesthetics and has expert technique. She never overdoes treatments. I have known her for 7+_ years and have always been impressed and satisfied. I also learn something new every time I visit, and as such I send many of my high-end clients to her and receive very good reviews. Her skin care line is also pretty impressive.

Dr.Susan is incredibly professional, knowledgeable and genuine! Her and Cassandra are a wonder duo that made me feel like the most important client ever. I was happy with the IPL and the tinted mineral sunscreen. The products are top notch.

Dr. Lin is by far the best doctor I've seen for my acne concern that has bothered me for 20 years! As many other reviews have mentioned, Dr. Lin is very professional, knowledgeable, kind, and very caring to address each individual's skin concerns.I saw Dr. Lin last year to address my severe acne/scars from face down to the chest and back (I was worried because I had pre-wedding photo coming up in 2 weeks at that time!). Dr. Lin magically helped my skin clear of acne after seeing her for only 2 sessions!! The result of the acne treatment plan is comparable to the most powerful accutane treatment that I've tried.Thank you so much Dr. Lin!!

I have been going to Dr. Susan Lin for years, she is incredibly professional, wonderfully upbeat - that makes me so happy to be there from arrival to exit. I feel so well taken care of, with her in depth consultations, information and recommendations, I will not go anywhere else for my anti-aging, and cosmetic needs. I have referred several family members, and friends, and they all love her and are thrilled with her services. I trust her expertise with injections, treatments and products that she chooses, and her office staff are very kind and accommodating. I continue to get compliments on my age not matching my looks, and a lot of that has to do with Dr. Lin's great care, Thank you Dr. Lin for all that you do!

MD Laser and Cosmetics is my saving grace when it comes to looking young and healthy.Dr. Susan Lin is the best. I've been going to her clinic for years now and I always feel good and confident when I leave her clinic.I love how she applies botox and fillers on my face. She listens to what I want to achieve and sometimes she may suggest something better and I really appreciate that.Most importantly, the end result stays longer and don't need to go for a while.As soon as I found out her clinic is opening after lockdown, I made sure I was one of the few in line.I highly recommend MD Laser and Cosmetics. I love Dr. Susan Lin.Your patient.Lucy

This review is for an IPL (photo facial) service. With numerous over the counter creams and concealer, none of the products seemed to correct or cover the sun spots that I developed over the years. Finally searched on Yelp and read numerous reviews.MD Laser and Cosmetics was my first choice from all the glowing reviews. I was fortunate during this pandemic to get a consultation with Dr. Lin. One of her friendly and wonderful staff member scheduled my FaceTime call. Dr. Lin was very warm, friendly, professional and explained the process and products for the IPL treatment. From our consultation, I felt assured that this would work.I was scheduled for my first IPL treatment a few days after the consultation. Dr. Lin made me feel at ease. Her friendly approach explaining step by step relieved me with the laser treatment. I purchased the MD beauty and wellness products for my morning and evening routine. A few days the pigmentation rose to the surface of my skin which made my sun spots become darker than it was originally. With a little patience and using the MD products, a week later after my first IPL treatment, I am so pleased with the results! Love the outcome! My skin looks and feels brand new. I highly recommend MD Laser and Cosmetics.

Had removal of skin tag on my face. Dr. Lin was very professional and provided great service while adhering to health and safety issues regarding Covid-19. Result was great and probably will require another follow-up and healing was almost complete in 3-4 days.

Dr. Lin is the perfect mix of friendly and professional, upscale and affordable. Her staff even go as far as helping my elderly father locate a misplaced wallet by calling every place we were prior to the appointment. They are a stellar crew, and my skin has never looked better! Oh, and PS- get yourself an SPF50 anti-aging tinted sunscreen- trust me!!!!Update July 2020I had to come back to add some more recommendations: the Foot Peel Treatment literally had my feet ready for flip-flop season in 2 nights. My feet look like they did when I was 19 years old at the beach! THANK YOU DR. LIN! Last, but not least- I have been using the Vitamin C serum for the past six months- the change in my skin’s appearance is so dramatic my coworkers think I’m getting chemical peels on the down low! My life is so much better under the care of Dr. Lin. I feel confident and attractive again. Give yourself a gift and make an appointment!

I’m new to the area this place is exactly what I needed. Stress has been getting to me and I’m 34 but I’ve been feeling like I’m 80. I hadn’t had my Botox/dysport done in almost 2 years and it showed. Forehead lines, dropping brows, everything that made me look beyond tired. It’s hard finding someone I trust with my face. It’s my FACE, I’m not taking chances on someone who could ruin it. This is the place. Shawna, the patient care coordinator, put me on the schedule quickly and when I met her she was warm, welcoming and made me feel comfortable. She’s the person you want to talk to when you don’t feel good about yourself.When I saw Dr. Lin she was amazing. She’s knowledgeable, brilliant, open and honest. She did an amazing job and I genuinely enjoyed my appointment. She’s interesting and a pleasure to talk with and she knows what she’s doing. I can recognize myself in the mirror again and I feel so much better than I have in months. This is the place for high quality work and incredible people.

Given my health needs, I've worked with 10+ doctors over the last ten years. I can confidently say that Dr. Susan Lin is one of the most caring and competent doctor's I've ever worked with. Her knowledge of medicine across both traditional Western and more holistic Eastern practices is outstanding. What really sets her apart though is her willingness to go above and beyond to help you. I've only been using her treatments for a short time but have already seen massive improvements to my symptoms. I truly believe Dr. Lin will help me get to the root cause of my health issues.

Dr. Lin is THE BEST! I'm so happy I found her and her amazing products. I can finally stop trying out different mediocre products, and feel like now I'm using the best skin and hair care out there. I can't believe the transformation that has happened so quickly. You can really feel the difference in quality from the first use.

Dr. Lin is the BEST. I used to smoke and sunbathe (back in the days when "sunscreen" was baby oil) and my face was a billboard for all of the stress I've experienced over the past 6 decades or so.....Dr. Lin did her magic, and I still look like me- I just look the way I'd look if I hadn't abused my skin all those years! Love her!

Treatments for a more youthful look

Saggy facial skin, gummy smile, double chin, sunken cheeks, all part of the inevitable aging process. Is there anything you can do about it? Yes! And it is all offered here such as Botox treatments, backed by science and over 25 years of experience.

Body rejuvenation to smooth out trouble spots

Stretchy and saggy skin can be the result of natural aging, losing weight, going through pregnancy and more. Our Body Rejuvenation treatments help tighten loose skin and reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Beyond smoothing out trouble spots, our medical spa has services to help with urinary incontinence, excessive sweating, and feminine rejuvenation.

Solutions for hair loss and removal

We know what type of impact hair loss can have on your self-esteem. The good news is you no longer have to invest in wigs and hats to cover up the problem. There are treatments available at our medical spa that have delivered excellent results to hundreds of satisfied clients. Please take a look at Before and After photos to get a better understanding of what you can expect.

For those of you who have the opposite problem we offer laser hair removal treatments. We can address your legs, back, arms, and other parts of the body. Laser hair removal is effective and can save you time as well as leave you feeling confident. Unlike waxing or shaving, laser hair removal targets only the hair leaving you smooth without pulling or scraping the skin.

Stunning skin is not just for celebrities

Acne and brown spots are difficult to cover up with makeup. When job interviewing, attending special events, giving that big presentation or anytime you want to shine do not let your skin hold you back. Make an appointment at the best medical spa in San Mateo and soon you too will be looking like an A-lister.
