About Beverly Hills MD Vein Away Correcting Cream
Beverly Hills MD Vein Away Correcting Cream is a fast-absorbing, non-greasy serum that can “significantly” reduce the appearance of varicose and spider veins. All you have to do is apply it once a day and the serum will get to work.
Vein Away Correcting Cream works so well because it takes a “revolutionary” 2-part approach to clearing up your veins:
- First, the active ingredients strengthen vein walls and rejuvenate your skin’s structure. Beverly Hills MD even claims Vein Away can “restore the youthful appearance of your skin”!
- Next, the serum’s ingredients will improve circulation, which can help relieve leg, ankle, and foot tiredness and soreness.
Because Vein Away is formulated and tested by cosmetic surgeons—who spent years researching and perfecting the serum—it will work regardless of your age. And perhaps most importantly, without having to visit your doctor or undergo painful injections or surgeries!
Varicose and spider veins are lousy. Plain and simple. They hurt, they often look unsightly, and they can even affect your self-confidence. In short, you want an easy solution, and you wanted it yesterday.
Now, the important question is: Have you found your solution with Vein Away Correcting Cream? Or, is the company preying on your need for relief and charging you an arm and a leg in the process? That’s exactly what we’ll help you answer here.
Before we get to that though, let’s build a solid foundation and learn some important facts about varicose and spider veins.
What’s the Difference Between Varicose & Spider Veins?
Whether we’re talking about varicose veins or spider veins, these common conditions (so common, in fact, that half of all Americans over the age of 50 suffer from them) occur when one or more veins stop functioning properly. Specifically, when the one-way valve inside a vein doesn’t work, which allows blood to collect inside instead of being sent toward your heart.
As a result, the vein becomes enlarged, swells to the surface, and appears twisted and bluish-purple or red in color. And really, the only difference between varicose and spider veins is their size, and to a lesser extent, where they appear.
Varicose veins are much larger, and therefore much more noticeable. They’re even so large that you might be able to feel them by running your fingers over their surface. In most instances, varicose veins appear on the legs.
In contrast, spider veins typically have the same twisted appearance as varicose veins, but are much smaller and spindlier. Spider veins are also common on the legs, but can appear on other parts of the body as well, including the face.
Despite their unsightly appearance, the good news is that these types of veins can often be successfully treated. But how?
What Causes Spider & Varicose Veins? Can They Be Treated?
There are dozens of different causes of varicose and spider veins, including:
- Genetics – If your parents experienced spider or varicose veins (especially if they had them prior to middle age), you’ll be much more likely to have them as well.
- Age – As we mentioned above, this is a very common condition for those 50 or older.
- Certain Medical Conditions – This includes chronic heart valve conditions, pregnancy, menopause (or other hormonal changes), and obesity.
- Lifestyle – If your stand or sit (especially with your legs crossed) for long periods of time, or expose your skin to excessive UV rays, this can make you more likely to develop spider and/or varicose veins.
Regardless of what’s causing these veins, there are several effective treatments available through your doctor. These include sclerotherapy (injecting a solution that causes the vein to collapse), as well as laser therapy (also known as ablation, which “uses a laser or high-frequency radio waves to create intense local heat in the vein”).
In some cases (especially with surface level varicose veins), your doctor might recommend a phlebectomy, which is “a minimally invasive procedure that uses a small scalpel or needle to remove varicose veins on the surface of the leg.”
Granted, these are all medical treatments. But can any of the ingredients in over-the-counter treatments like Vein Away Correcting Cream help?
How Effective Are Vein Away’s Ingredients?
In most of the other Beverly Hills MD products we’ve reviewed (we’ll talk more in a moment), the company provided a label and a full list of ingredients. This wasn’t the case with Vein Away Correcting Cream at the time of our research, although we were told it contains:
- Capt System™ Es-M – This proprietary Lucas Meyer product is a formulation of glycerin, lecithin, dicaprylyl ether, Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) seed extract, water, and menthol. In layman’s terms, the company claims it can improve the efficacy and stability of other ingredients it’s attached to.
- LegActif – Manufactured by CenterChem, LegActif is a mixture of water, glycerin, Ruscus Aculeatus root extract, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) peel extract, and Solidago Virgaurea (Goldenrod) extract. All of these are claimed to stimulate blood circulation and reduce calf and ankle swelling.
- Actiphyte® of Arnica – According to the manufacturer, Actiphyte is a botanical extract that adds moisturizing, toning, soothing, conditioning, and protecting properties to different personal care products. In this instance, Actiphyte is added to arnica.
- Actiphyte® of Myrrh – Another botanical blend, this time containing myrrh.
- Lipex 205 – Lipex 205 is a proprietary formulation of liquid shea butter, which adds moisturizing and emollient properties to other products.
- Panthenol – A transparent liquid made mostly from vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid), it adds emollient and moisturizing properties to other products.
Alright, those are the basics. But are these ingredients any good? Well, it all depends on how you take them.
For example, horse chestnut is listed as “possibly effective” for treating varicose veins and other circulatory problems, but only when ingested internally (versus topically, as with Vein Away). Similarly, Ruscus Aculeatus might help relieve poor leg circulation, but only when taken as a supplement instead of used as a topical cream.
Perhaps the best pick of the bunch, topical gels containing arnica have shown some promise for reducing arthritis symptoms in hands and knees, but not for easing muscular or other types of pain.
Outside of these, each of Vein Away’s other ingredients only act as skin conditioning agents; i.e. they can help moisturize your skin and, with continued use, might help it feel softer.
Given all of this, what kinds of benefits could you realistically expect to experience with Vein Away Correcting Cream? In our opinion, outside of perhaps some minor relief from joint pain, there isn’t enough evidence to show that you’ll experience any kind of benefits. And even if you did, they definitely won’t come close to what you’ll achieve with cosmetic procedures.
But doctors’ visits are expensive, right? Comparatively, how much will you spend on Vein Away Correcting Cream?
Will Vein Away’s Price Cause Your Money To Disappear?
According to the Beverly Hills MD website, Vein Away Correcting Cream is available in the following quantities:
- 1 Jar: $49
- 2 Jars: $86
- 3 Jars: $120
All US orders come with free shipping. But regardless where you’re located, your purchase will also come with a 60-day refund policy, which you can request by calling 877-828-5528.
Taking Vein Away’s ingredient formulation together with its price, what are customers saying?
Is Vein Away Helping Others Find Relief?
Vein Away Correcting Cream was a brand new product at the time of our research, so there weren’t any online reviews yet.
The good news is that we’ve reviewed just about every Beverly Hills MD product out there, including popular options like their Dark Spot Corrector, Lift + Firm Sculpting Cream, Crepe Correcting Body Complex, and more. Just because they’re popular, does that mean customers are satisfied?
In short, it appears so. Overall, these products had an average rating of 4.5 stars here on HighYa, with compliments ranging from ease of use to “it really works!” Like most other beauty products though, it seems the majority of complaints revolved around failure to work, high price, and mild side effects (redness, rash, acne, etc.).
Beverly Hills MD also had an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau (as of 12/19/15), with just 2 closed complaints. Details weren’t available.
Will Vein Away Get Rid of Those Creepy-Crawly Spider Veins?
No, there isn’t a “cure” for spider or varicose veins, but there are some highly effective outpatient procedures that can greatly reduce their appearance, and you’ll be back to normal in no time.
Are many of these treatments expensive? Yes. But do we think they’d provide much more value for your money, compared to continuously using Vein Away month after month? Considering that none of the Correcting Cream’s ingredients have been shown to be effective as a topical cream, probably so.
Still feel like giving it a try? Beverly Hills MD is a legitimate company that appears to stand behind their products with a 60-day refund policy. So you might only be out a few bucks in S&H charges if you decide to roll the dice.

Vein Away: Don't waste your money.
After 3 jars, exactly by directions, no results. Started product on Wed. July 20th, completed 3rd jar on Wed. Sept 20th. Decided to concentrate on only 2 spots, each 2 inch by 2 inch, on outer calf of leg. One on each leg. Never missed a day, am and pm as was directed. Mine are truly "spider veins," NOT large, dark,worm-like veins. 0 results. Money and time wasted. I have used at least 4 other Beverly Hills MD products, none have failed to the extent that Vein Away Correcting Creams has.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Cream shows little improvment
I have been using Vein Away cream for two months by applying the cream both day and night) and have seen little, if any, improvement. I will continue to use the cream until it's gone but I would not recommend to this anyone who feels this will significantly decrease the look of your spider veins and more than likely will not show any improvement for varicose veins. I should have known that these products just do not work but wanted to try it anyway. May anyone who uses this have more success than me.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friendView all 2 commentsHide comments

I am so sorry to hear that you are not yet seeing the improvement you were expecting. I do encourage you to continue using the cream until it is finished, as certain skin types may take a bit longer to see results.
Of course, if you are still not satisfied, I will personally take care of your refund for you. Please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to help.
Thanks for your feedback Brenda, we appreciate it!

Bought a jar and used it religiously in the morning and evening on my spider veined feet. Used the entire jar over 45 days. It did absolutely nothing, and I mean nothing.

LOVE the product.
I have started using this product and on the fourth day, I am already seeing results. I know that everyone's body is different so I do recommend anyone to try this for themselves. I seen the other reviews and that is why I am writing this. I know how deep in color mine were and how embarrassing it is for me to have it be visible for anyone to see. I do see the results that I wanted when I bought this product and I hope that it continues as I continue to use the product. So far I am loving what it is doing for me.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Oh come on. Copy and paste same response from below. Are going to pay for shipping and go to UPS store to get box and package it up? How many people actually return this after spending hard earned money on snake oil. You should be ashamed of taking advantage of vulnerable women who can't afford fake scams. False advertising. Illegal, and morally corrupt.
Jun 26, 2016
I would love to speak in person with anyone who actually had results with this snake oil. You should be ashamed. Doctors take an oath to do no harm. You clearly are defrauding, and taking advantage of insecure and vulnerable people. Your license should be revoked and you need to serve time.
Jul 22, 2016
Hello Jenn, thank you again for your feedback. I want to assure you that Beverly Hills MD is an honest company who prides itself in our products and amazing customer service. There is no need for you to ship the product back, and as stated previously, I will be more than happy to process a refund for you. I am looking forward to your email. Thank you.

Vein Away Correcting Cream
I ordered Beverly Hills MD Vein Away on 4/24/16 after viewing the video presented by Dr. Layke. I was feeling encouraged that it might help problem veins. I have used it faithfully morning and night since receiving the product. I ordered three jars because it was a better deal if you ordered more. After after using one and 1/2 jars there is absolutely no change in veins. However, I must say that the skin on my legs seems more hydrated.

Doesn't work, waste of money
I used this with no results. Took 3 weeks to receive the order. Remember, you have to return it within 60 days of ordering for money back. I had no results what so ever, but did get a refund by filing a claim with Paypal. Don't waste your money.

Hello Julie, my name is Samantha and I am the Customer Care Manager here at Beverly Hills MD. Thank you for leaving us your feedback here on Highya. I am so sorry that you did not see the results you expected with Vein Away. Unfortunately this product was on back order due to very high demand and took a little bit longer to receive. All customers should have been contacted about this backorder. I apologize for any confusion this may have caused. We always stand by our 60 Day Guarantee and due to the backorder issue, the time was extended even longer. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, in the future, if you have any questions or concerns.

I was smart I took pictures. Been using for 3 weeks. I have seen some improvements. If I didn't take pictures I would not have been able to tell. It also helps my red veins on my face.
