The MD Story
Susan Lin M.D. has been on a quest to help individuals from all walks of life look and feel their best for over 25 years.
Born into a family of physicians, Dr. Lin followed a similar path and graduated from the Boston University School Six Year Medical Program with an NIH Cancer Research Fellowship. She completed her postdoctoral training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Kaiser Permanente Oakland, Felix Rutledge Oncology Fellowship at MD Anderson Cancer Center and Galloway Fellowship in Gynecologic Oncology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
Early in her medical career, when Susan experienced problems with her own thinning hair and eyelashes, she decided to direct her passion for learning and research into helping herself and others by developing scientifically-based solutions for beauty and wellness.
The result is MD—a full range of anti-aging health and beauty products that utilize cutting edge technology. These high tech products produce astonishing results without the use of surgery—or spending a fortune.
Over the years, the MD collection has grown into over 30 renowned products, in four diverse product categories: MD Hair, MD Skin, MD Lash and MD Wellness. These personal care products were launched in the United States; due to demand, however, the MD collection is now available in 24 countries around the world.
MD Hair is a complete program of clinically-proven products designed to work in tandem. The program incorporates MD Nutri Hair (a daily supplement that nourishes hair from within) as well as a number of topical products that restore and prevent hair damage.
MD Skin is a range of super simplified skin products that utilize patented stem cell technology for results that lift, firm and prevent aging of the skin. Dr. Lin has also developed extremely effective regimens for the treatment of acne.
MD Lash is best known for the MD Lash Factor Eyelash Conditioner. This hero product has been the proud recipient of many international awards. It features a patented, revolutionary formula that combines the latest technology in lash care science with the nutrients necessary for developing naturally beautiful lashes.
MD Wellness is a collection of products developed by Dr. Lin for stress and weight reduction, detox and sexual well-being.
In 1991, Dr. Lin founded the MD Laser and Cosmetics Center in San Mateo, California. She combined her expert medical background (as a board-certified surgeon, obstetrician and gynecologist) with the latest cutting-edge spa services. The result has been an extremely successful medi-spa that not only helps her clients to look their best, but greatly improves their confidence and overall feelings of well-being.
Dr. Susan Lin is passionate about staying at the forefront of beauty and wellness technology, which may explain why she has become known as an expert in the field of medical aesthetics. One notable achievement came in 2015 when Dr. Lin was asked to author two chapters in “Harry’s Cosmeticology 9th Edition”; a prestigious resource that is widely recognized as one of the most popular cosmetic technical books of all time. This reference book draws on the current expertise from leading industry, academia and the dermatological professionals; it has also been approved as a textbook for universities and cosmetic societies around the world.
