How Do We Achieve Our Mission

Empowering patients to Feel Confident

Dr. Susan Lin grew up in a family of physicians. An excellent student, she discovered her love of biological research early and decided she could accomplish her research goal by becoming a physician.

At her practice, MD Laser&Cosmetics Center, in San Mateo, CA, Dr.Lin focuses on using the latest stem cell derived growth factor to restore hair and rejuvenate skin. “MD Laser&Cosmetics Center is where science meets beauty, “states Dr.Lin. “We understand the latest science. The mission of our practice is to apply this science to help our patients who want to look and feel their best.”

At MD Laser&Cosmetics Center, patients find a full range of services to empower them to be their personal best. “In Silicon Valley, where we practice,” explains Dr.Lin, “it is important professionally to look young to stay competitive in the job market. However, one needs to also look natural and not look ‘done’. We’re here to help you look naturally refreshed so you can enjoy the improved confidence that comes from feeling good about your appearance.”

To achieve their mission, the MD Center offers non-surgical facial rejuvenation, including: photo-facials, custom chemical peels, photo-modulation, and silkpeel dermal-infusion. They also offer BotoxRCosmetic, DysportR, RestylaneR, and JuvedermR injections. Some of the latest scientific anti-aging treatments offered include Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) rejuvenation for the face, neck, and hands. PRP uses a tiny amount of the patients own blood serum which has been concentrated and reinjected to simulate healing. Following treatment, skin looks tighter, firmer with a youthful glow. Another state-of-the-art treatment for reduction of fine lines and wrinkles is ThermiSmoothR, a non-invasive radio frequency treatment which uses gentle heat to tighten tissue and promote collagen production resulting in a refreshed look. Patients often say ThermiSmooth treatment feels like a warm massage. Patients suffering from acne will love FDA-approved Isolaz treatment which uses light therapy and suction to clean pores, reducing acne, blackheads and pores.

For those clients suffering from hair loss, MD Center is pleased to offer PRP treatments for hair loss. State-of-art PRP and growth factor injections provide a new form of hair regenerative medicine. PRP is utilized in conjunction with hair transplant procedures to aid in the healing and recovery, boosting the health and fullness of existing hair. The practice also offers laser hair reduction as well as laser scar treatments.

Looking your best also means eliminating love handles and other signs of excess pounds. If you have tried diet and exercise plans without success, contact MD Center for help. Their physician supervised HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) hormone weight loss regimen involves injections of HCG hormone which results in dramatic weight loss.

Feeling your best also means having confidence in your intimate relationships because sadly, aging effects more than just a woman’s face. Many women suffer from vaginal laxity which can interface with sexual satisfaction, reducing feelings of intimacy and bonding with her partner. Reduced confidence, poorer self-image, and decreased happiness and fulfillment can result. Vaginal muscles sag due to the effects of child bearing, age, and gravity. This excessive muscle relaxation can result in reduced sensation during intercourse and lessen sexual satisfaction for both partners.

The continual search for improved, authentic treatment options that focus on the whole woman, not just her face, led Dr.Lin to ThermiVaR. ThermiVa is an ideal treatment modality for many of the problems plaguing premenopausal and menopausal women such as urinary incontinence, painful intercourse, vulvovaginal laxity, labial appearance, and loss of vaginal lubrication and sensation. ThermiVa produces results which are immediately apparent, with little risk, no pain, and no recovery downtime. ThermiVa is non-surgical and is performed in office. While significant benefits are experienced after a single treatment, a series of three treatments over the course of three months may be necessary to achieve optimum results.

“As a board certified gynecologist,” exclaims Dr.Lin, “I LOVE ThermiVa! My patients’ comments sum up the results we’ve seen: ‘I feel alive again’; ’Thumbs up’; ‘Best sex I have had!’ and ‘It helped with my urinary leakage.’ ThermiVa allows every woman to look and feel her best without surgery or downtime.”

Dr.Lin wants all her patients to look and feel their best, and they can, with help from MD Center and the latest science has to offer. She recommends “Staying happy and being with people who have positive energy. It is also important to focus on simple daily regimens that will help you achieve your anti-aging goal, rather than focus on procedures. One can look and feel great easily without spending a fortune or having surgery.” Dr.Lin created MD, a collection of innovative hair, skin and wellness products utilizing the latest anti-aging technology. Since 1991, she has been on a quest for the most advanced breakthroughs in the health and wellness of women, in addition to hair and skin beauty. Dr.Susan Lin’s physician-formulated products are available throughout the US and in dozens of countries worldwide. For additional information on MD products, please visit her website:
