Principal Amount: $2,028,524.00 Date of Note: April 21, 2020
PROMISE TO PAY.  STRATA SKIN SCIENCES, INC. ("Borrower") promises to pay to Republic First Bank D/B/A Republic Bank ("Lender"), or order, in lawful money of the United States of America, the principal amount of Two Million Twenty-eight Thousand Five Hundred Twenty-four & 00/100 Dollars ($2,028,524.00), together with interest on the unpaid principal balance from April 21, 2020, until paid in full.
PAYMENT.  Borrower will pay this loan in accordance with the following payment schedule, which calculates interest on the unpaid principal balances as described in the "INTEREST CALCULATION METHOD" paragraph using the interest rates described in this paragraph: 17 monthly consecutive principal and interest payments of $114,191.35 each, beginning December 1, 2020, with interest calculated on the unpaid principal balances using an interest rate of 1.000% per annum; and one principal and interest payment of $114,191.32 on May 1, 2022, with interest calculated on the unpaid principal balances using an interest rate of 1.000% per annum.  This estimated final payment is based on the assumption that all payments will be made exactly as scheduled; the actual final payment will be for all principal and accrued interest not yet paid, together with any other unpaid amounts under this Note. Unless otherwise agreed or required by applicable law, payments will be applied first to any accrued unpaid interest; then to principal; then to any escrow or reserve account payments as required under any mortgage, deed of trust, or other security instrument or security agreement securing this Note; then to any late charges; and then to any unpaid collection costs.
PAYCHECK PROTECTION PROGRAM.  Bank is making this loan pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (the "PPP") created by Section 1102 of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the " CARES Act ") and governed by the CARES Act, section 7(a)(36) of the Small Business Act, any rules or guidance that has been issued by the Small Business Administration implementing the PPP, or any other applicable Loan Program Requirements, as defined in 13 CFR § 120.10, as amended from time to time (collectively "PPP Loan Program Requirements ").  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the Borrower (a) agrees that this Promissory Note shall be interpreted and construed to be consistent with the PPP Loan Program Requirements and (b) authorizes the Bank to unilaterally amend any provision of this Promissory Note to the extent required to comply with the PPP Loan Program Requirements.
PAYMENT ADJUSTMENT.  Lender must adjust the payment amount at least annually as needed to amortize principal over the remaining term of the Note.
INTEREST CALCULATION METHOD.  Interest on this Note is computed on a 365/365 simple interest basis; that is, by applying the ratio of the interest rate over the number of days in a year (365 for all years, including leap years), multiplied by the outstanding principal balance, multiplied by the actual number of days the principal balance is outstanding.  All interest payable under this Note is computed using this method.
RECEIPT OF PAYMENTSAll payments must be made in U.S. dollars and must be received by Lender at: Republic First Bank O/B/A Republic Bank
Two Liberty Place
50 S. 16th Street , Suite 2400 Philadelphia. PA 19102
Payments must be received consistent with the following payment instructions:  By mail at the address specified above by 5:00 PM Eastern Standard Time; In person at the Lender's store by 5:00 PM Eastern Standard Time; By online transfer using the Lender's online banking system by 11:OO PM Eastern Standard Time; By telephone transfer using the Lender's Interactive Voice Response System by 11:OO PM Eastern Standard Time.  Lender may modify these payment instructions, including changing the address for payments, by providing updated payment instructions to Borrower in writing.  If a payment is made consistent with Lender's payment instructions but received after the times noted in the payment instructions above on a business day, Lender will credit Borrower's payment on the next business day.
PREPAYMENT.  Borrower may pay without penalty all or a portion of the amount owed earlier than it is due.  Early payments will not, unless agreed to by Lender in writing, relieve Borrower of Borrower's obligation to continue to make payments under the payment schedule.  Rather, early payment s will reduce the principal balance due and may result in Borrower 's making fewer payments.Borrower agrees not to send Lender payments marked "paid in full", "without recourse", or similar language.  If Borrower sends such a payment, Lender may accept it without losing any of Lender's rights under this Note, and Borrower will remain obligated to pay any further amount owed to Lender.  All written communications concerning disputed amounts, including any check or other payment instrument that indicates that the payment constitutes "payment in full" of the amount owed or that is tendered with other conditions or limitations or as full satisfaction of a disputed amount must be mailed or delivered to: Republic First Bank D/B/A Republic Bank, Two Liberty Place, 50 S. 16th Street, Ste. 2400 Philadelphia, PA 19102.
LATE CHARGE. If a payment is 10 days or more late, Borrower will be charged 5.000% of the unpaid portion of the regularly scheduled payment.
INTEREST AFTER DEFAULT.  Upon default, including failure to pay upon final maturity, the interest rate on this Note shall be increased by adding an additional 5.000 percentage point margin ("Default Rate Margin"). The Default Rate Margin shall also apply to each succeeding interest rate change that would have applied had there been no default.  After maturity, or after this Note would have matured had there been no default, the Default Rate Margin will continue to apply to the final interest rate described in this Note.  If judgment is entered in connection with this Note, interest will continue to accrue after the date of judgment at the rate in effect at the time judgment is entered.  However, in no event will the interest rate exceed the maximum interest rate limitations under applicable law.
DEFAULT.  Each of the following shall constitute an event of default ("Event of Default ") under this Note: Payment Default.  Borrower fails to make any payment when due under this Note.
Other Defaults.  Borrower fails to comply with or to perform any other term, obligation, covenant or condition contained in this Note or in


Page 2

Default in Favor of Third Parties.  Borrower or any Granter defaults under any loan, extension of credit, security agreement, purchase or sales agreement, or any other agreement, in favor of any other creditor or person that may materially affect any of Borrower's property or Borrower's ability to repay this Note or perform Borrower's obligations under this Note or any of the related documents.
False StatementsAny warranty, representation or statement made or furnished to Lender by Borrower or on Borrower's behalf under this Note or the related documents is false or misleading in any material respect, either now or at the time made or furnished or becomes false or misleading at any time thereafter.
Insolvency.  The dissolution or termination of Borrower 's existence as a going business, the insolvency of Borrower, the appointment of a receiver for any part of Borrower's property, any assignment for the benefit of creditors, any type of creditor workout, or the commencement of any proceeding under any bankruptcy or insolvency laws by or against Borrower.
Creditor or Forfeiture Proceedings.  Commencement of foreclosure or forfeiture proceedings, whether by judicial proceeding, self-help, repossession or any other method, by any creditor of Borrower or by any governmental agency against any collateral securing the loan. This includes a garnishment of any of Borrower's accounts, including deposit accounts, with Lender.  However, this Event of Default shall not apply if there is a good faith dispute by Borrower as to the validity or reasonableness of the claim which is the basis of the creditor or forfeiture proceeding and if Borrower gives Lender written notice of the creditor or forfeiture proceeding and deposits with Lender monies or a surety bond for the creditor or forfeiture proceeding, in an amount determined by Lender, in its sole discretion, as being an adequate reserve or bond for the dispute.
Events Affecting Guarantor.  Any of the preceding events occurs with respect to any guarantor, endorser, surety, or accommodation party of any of the indebtedness or any guarantor, endorser, surety, or accommodation party dies or becomes incompetent, or revokes or disputes the validity of, or liability under, any guaranty of the indebtedness evidenced by this Note.

STRATA Skin Sciences, Inc. Receives Forgivable Loan Under the Paycheck Protection Program
$2.0 million forgivable loan received
Provides further business update - Initiating the Patient Outreach Program

Horsham, PA, April 27, 2020 — STRATA Skin Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: SSKN) (“STRATA” or the “Company”), a medical technology company in Dermatology and Plastic Surgery dedicated to developing, commercializing and marketing innovative products for the treatment of dermatologic conditions, today announced it received a loan of approximately $2.0 million (the “PPP loan”) from Republic Bank, as lender, pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”) on April 22, 2020.  The PPP loan matures on May 1, 2022 and bears an interest rate of 1.0% per annum.  Payments of principal and interest of any unforgiven balance commence December 1, 2020.

All or a portion of the PPP loan may be forgiven by the lender upon application by STRATA beginning 60 days but not later than 120 days after loan approval and upon documentation of expenditures in accordance with the requirements set forth by the Small Business Administration (the “SBA”) pursuant to the CARES Act. Under the CARES Act, loan forgiveness is available for the sum of documented payroll costs, covered rent payments, covered mortgage interest and covered utilities during the eight week period beginning on the date of disbursement of proceeds from the PPP loan.  For purposes of the CARES Act, payroll costs exclude compensation of an individual employee in excess of $100,000, prorated annually. Not more than 25% of the forgiven amount may be for non-payroll costs. Forgiveness is reduced if full-time headcount declines, or if salaries and wages for employees with salaries of $100,000 or less annually are reduced by more than 25%. In the event the PPP loan, or any portion thereof, is forgiven pursuant to the PPP, the amount forgiven is applied to outstanding principal. 

It should be noted the SBA has recently issued the interim final regulations in light of certain companies receiving PPP loans as it pertains to “Do businesses owned by large companies with adequate sources of liquidity to support the business’s ongoing operations qualify for a PPP loan?” STRATA is not owned by a large company, and while public, does not have a substantial market value nor have substantial access to the capital markets; based on its financial position, STRATA believes that it qualifies for funding of a PPP loan.

Additionally, Dr. Rafaeli announced that in further efforts to conserve the Company’s cash resources, the STRATA management team has deferred the payment of their 2019 fiscal year bonuses of $333 thousand and the Board of Directors has deferred all second quarter board fees of $62 thousand.

As individual states across the United States begin announcing their steps of returning to normal business activities, the Company is executing on its Patient Outreach Program, in which STRATA provides a unique advantage to its partner clinics, to quickly rebuild their patient referrals by reengaging patients that were either in treatment or about to enter into treatments before the lockdown.  The Company, as part of its service to its partners, and using its in-house call-center and reimbursement teams will perform outreach services on behalf of these clinics to their patients to bring them back into treatment. At this time, the Company has held multiple webinars on this Program with over 200 attendees.

With a number of states updating their guidelines related to the timing of allowing elective procedures at health clinics, including dermatologists’ offices, we have already reached out to 357 clinics in 18 states offering to assist these partners in their plans to open and reengage with their patients.

In maintaining CDC and state guidelines, the individual clinics will need to closely monitor the safety of their patients and staff; commenting on his own re-opening plans, Dr. Barry Goldman, a board-certified dermatologist in New York City, stated, I do not have to worry about the lack of data associated with COVID-19 and other modalities that can potentially cause immunosuppression when I’m providing XTRAC therapy. The XTRAC is a very safe and effective treatment for psoriasis and vitiligo. Strata Skin Sciences provides excellent support to help drive utilization of the device.”

Dr. Dolev Rafaeli, the Company’s President and CEO, stated, “As a small publicly traded company, the stimulus from the Federal government which we have received, will assist the Company and our employees in these unprecedented times. The additional liquidity helps us launch our Patient Outreach Program. The program is an affirmation of our Company and the resiliency of our unique business model where we can leverage our unique resources, systems, and relationships with patients and our partner clinics to assist in getting back to the business of treating patients.”
