FOR VALUE RECEIVED, ALPHAEON CORPORATION, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), hereby promises to pay to the order of DENTAL INNOVATIONS BVBA (the “Holder”), one hundred seventy five percent (175%) of the principal sum of US$5,000,000 (the “Payment Amount”) on the Maturity Date (as defined below). This Note is being issued to lenders with identical terms and on the same form as set forth herein (except that the holder, principal amount and date of issuance may differ in each Note) pursuant to that certain Senior Unsecured Note Purchase Agreement, dated effective as of June 19, 2019 (the “Purchase Agreement”), by and among the Company, Dental Innovations BVBA, or one or more related entities designated by Dental Innovations BVBA, and one or more other lenders who, from time to time, may purchase Notes thereunder. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined in this Note shall have the meanings set forth in the Purchase Agreement.

This Note shall be senior in right of priority and payment to any current or future indebtedness of the Company or the Company’s subsidiary, AEON Biopharma, Inc. (“AEON”), other than the Strathspey Note which may be repaid in accordance with its terms. This Note shall be senior unsecured, but shall be pari-passu with that certain Fourth Amended and Restated Intercompany Credit Line Promissory Note in favor of Strathspey Crown Holdings Group, LLC (formerly known as SCH-AEON, LLC and Strathspey Crown Holdings, LLC), dated June 30, 2019, as amended and restated, supplemented or otherwise modified (the “Strathspey Note”).

1.Payment. The Payment Amount is due and payable by the Company to the Holder on the third (3rd) anniversary of the date of issuance of this Note (the “Maturity Date”). If payment under this Note becomes due and payable on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding business day. The Note will bear no stated interest. The Payment Amount will be paid in lawful money of the United States of America at such place as the Holder may from time to time designate in writing to the Company.



2.Prepayment. The Company may prepay (in whole) the Payment Amount without premium or penalty at any time prior to the Maturity Date (a “Prepayment”).

For purposes of this Note, a “Change of Control Transaction” with respect to either the Company or AEON (either being the “Acquired Entity”) shall mean the occurrence of any of the following events: (a) an acquisition of Acquired Entity by another entity by means of any transaction or series of related transactions (including, without limitation, any reorganization, merger or consolidation in which the Acquired Entity's stockholders of record immediately prior to such Acquisition (as defined below) will, immediately after such acquisition, hold less than fifty percent (50%) of the voting power of the surviving or acquiring entity, but excluding any merger effected exclusively for the purpose of changing the domicile of the Acquired Entity or a merger between the Acquired Entities), or (b) a sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the Acquired Entity (collectively, an “Acquisition”). For purposes of this Note, an “IPO” with respect to the Company or AEON shall mean such entity's first underwritten public offering of its common stock under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
