About Beverly Hills MD Resurface + Restore Youth Revealing System

By HighYa Research Team
Published on: Feb 6, 2017

Formulated and tested by cosmetic surgeons, the Beverly Hills MD Resurface + Restore Youth Revealing System promises to powerfully—yet gently—remove dead skin cells, improve firmness, and reduce the appearance of fine lines around the eyes and mouth.

As a result, we’re told you can expect a fresher, brighter complexion and a more youthful look and feel, without having to worry about flaking or irritation.

Resurface + Restore accomplishes this using two products: Multi-Acid Peel Pads and a Vitamin Infused Peptide Mix that are formulated for use on all skin types and will leave it feeling soft, stimulated, and firm.

In short, if you’re looking for a middle ground between harsh in-office treatments and cheap products that can cause damage, Beverly Hills MD claims their Youth Revealing System will deliver.

But before you hand over your hard-earned money, you want to know if this Youth Revealing System really can put you on the path to the “most youthful, radiant skin you’ve had in years,” or if it’s just an overhyped product. Here, we’ll help you find some answers.

The Basics of Aging

While many important compounds are needed to sustain human life, there is perhaps none more essential than protein. Every cell in our body contains it, it helps manufacture hormones and other chemicals, and it builds and repairs tissue—including muscle, bone, cartilage, and skin.

Now, the most abundant proteins in skin are collagen and elastin; collagen maintains firmness and elastin provides elasticity.

When we’re young, both of these proteins are abundant. After the age of 20, however, our body produces increasingly less, leading to skin that is thinner and more fragile over time.

Combined with other factors, like diminished oil and sweat gland function, sun exposure, environmental pollution, and negative lifestyle habits (smoking, excessive alcohol consumption), this protein loss can cause deep wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and dark spots.

According to Beverly Hills MD, though, their two-part Youth Revealing System claims to help you fight back against this unavoidable process.

What kinds of results might you expect? Let’s find out what ingredients you’ll be adding to your skin.

How Effective Are Resurface + Restore Youth Revealing System's Ingredients?

Resurfacing Facial Pads

BHMD’s Resurfacing Facial Pads contain two different complexes:

Both AHA (alpha-hydroxy acids) and BHA (beta hydroxy acids) are chemical exfoliants; that is, they slough off the keratinocytes on top of the skin to help reveal the fresher-looking skin underneath.

Of these, glycolic acid is the most common, as it features a small molecular structure and the ability to draw moisture to your skin. However, it might be more irritating than other AHAs, especially if you have sensitive skin.

As its name might lead you to believe, the lactic acid (the second most common AHA) in the Youth Revealing System is derived from milk. Another good choice for those with sensitive skin or who are looking to draw moisture to the skin.

According to Dr. Doris Day, phytic acid can be ideal for those with sensitive skin or rosacea, while mandelic acid’s antibacterial and anti-microbial properties might make it an ideal choice for those with acne-prone skin.

Compared to AHAs, BHAs (specifically, salicylic acid) work to clear out pores and prevent acne. This is the same ingredient you’ll find in popular acne wipes like Stridex.

Important note: Since salicylic acid and willow bark (which contains salicin) are anti-inflammatory ingredients similar to aspirin, you’ll want to avoid if you have an aspirin allergy.

Restoring Peptide Milk

Beverly Hills MD tells us that Youth Revealing System’s Restoring Peptide Milk only contains four ingredients:

  • Lecinol S-10 (Hydrogenated Lecithin):
  • Uplevity (Water, Acetyl Tetrapeptide-2, Caprylyl Glycol)
  • Retinol 50 C
  • BV-OSC (Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate)

In general, lecithin is a fatty substance (often derived from soy for use in cosmetics) that works as a moisturizer. And unlike a lot of other ingredients, lecithin can penetrate the skin and help deliver other ingredients into the bloodstream.

Lecinol S-10 is a proprietary version of lecithin manufactured by Nikko Chemicals Company. Other than claiming to reduce skin irritation and help disperse pigment, the company doesn’t reference any specific benefits for their hydrogenated version.

Uplevity is another proprietary ingredient (the Youth Revealing System contains several!), this time manufactured by Lipotec. It promises to create functional elastin, support cell cohesion in the skin, increase firmness, and provide a “rejuvenation effect of 9 years,” although we didn’t encounter any clinical evidence supporting these claims during our research.

Once applied to the skin, retinol converts into vitamin A, which can increase cell turnover (similar to the exfoliants we discussed earlier) and hydrate skin, without a lot of irritation. Retinol 50C is a proprietary version owned by BASF.

Finally, BV-OSC (tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate) is a mild, stable, oil-soluble form of vitamin C that’s been shown to boost collagen levels, brighten skin, and repair damage caused by environmental exposure.

How much will you pay for all of these ingredients?

How Much Does the Resurface + Restore Youth Revealing System Cost?

Beverly Hills MD’s Youth Revealing System is priced as follows:

  • 1-Month Supply: $49
  • 2-Month Supply: $86
  • 3-Month Supply: $120

All U.S. orders come with free shipping.

Regardless of where you’re ordering from, Resurface + Restore comes with a 60-day money back guarantee, less S&H. To request one, you’ll need to call customer support at 877-828-5528.

Overall, do Beverly Hills MD’s customers feel like they’re getting their money’s worth?

What Reviews for Other Beverly Hills MD’s Other Products Might Reveal

While the Resurface + Restore System was brand new at the time of our research, Beverly Hills MD manufactures an entire line of popular anti-aging products, including Dark Spot Corrector, Crepe Correcting Body Complex, Lift + Firm Sculpting Cream, Vein Away Correcting Cream, and Dark Circle Corrector.

Some of these came with more customer feedback and higher reputations than others, although BHMD’s lineup seemed to feature mostly positive feedback and four-star ratings from HighYa readers.

Here, compliments tended to reference effective results (reduced signs of aging, improved skin condition), quality ingredients, and good smell and skin feel.

In fact, we tested the Lift + Firm Sculpting Cream ourselves and found that it felt lightweight, was easy to apply, and contained mostly safe, beneficial ingredients. After three weeks of regular use, though, we weren’t sure about the benefits:

Like most anti-aging products from all manufacturers, the most common complaint about BHMD's products seemed related to no results (at least not in line with its cost) and steeper prices that some of the competition.

In most instances, a Beverly Hills MD representative responded directly to these complaints in order to address the underlying issue, so they seem to be focused on customer satisfaction.

From a company perspective, Beverly Hills MD was founded by Drs. Payman Danielpour and John Layke in 2012. They had an A+ Better Business Bureau rating at the time of our research, based on 27 closed complaints (as of 2/4/17).

Most of these seemed related to problems with refunds or autoship programs. Again, the company was responsive in most instances and actively attempted to resolve the situation.

Before founding the company, Payman Danielpour trained in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Nassau University Medical Center in New York. John Layke earned his medical degree at Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and trained in surgery at the University of Illinois Metropolitan Group Hospitals in Chicago.

Is the Resurface + Restore Youth Revealing System Worth the Price?

While this is a perfectly valid question, the HighYa team is here to help you make informed decisions—not to tell you how to spend your money. After all, whether or not something is ‘worthwhile’ depends on dozens of personal factors, about which we simply can’t know.

Just keep in mind that there are thousands of other AHA- and- BHA-based products out there, many of which line the shelves at local retailers and can be purchased for as little as $12—potentially saving you time and return S&H if you’re not pleased.

Will you get meaningfully better results from BHMD’s two-part Youth Revealing System than these other options? Again, there’s simply no way to know without giving it a try.

Fortunately, based on their feedback here on HighYa and elsewhere online, most of Beverly Hills MD's customers seemed pleased with their results and convinced that the high prices are worthwhile. And if it doesn't work out for you, they seem to stand behind their products with a 60-day refund policy.

Pro tip: Don’t forget to apply toner before applying exfoliants like AHA or BHA, since it can help optimize your skin’s pH, while further removing excess oils and dead skin cells.

    When I first cleaned my face with the first pad or two, they had collected much dirt. Now the pad is clean and my face feels soft and wonderful. The cream you put on your face afterwards makes for a smooth face.

    I'm in my 70th year so there are obvious lines and wrinkles. Not only do I see a softening of my face, I know the product is not just making a difference on the exterior layer of skin. I had some very bad permanent make-up on my lips and eyebrows - though it had lightened some over time, it was very obvious. Using this product, the eyebrows are so much softer and stray lines are gone - the lips are almost back to normal too - fading almost daily. I couldn't be more pleased and am having my daughter try it for her chickenpox-scarred face. I believe it will help!

    I’m 73 years old, have some sagging skin and large pores. This product so far seems to be smoothing my skin and firming it up too. I am looking forward to what it will be after three months using these products.

    This product is simply a must-have! When I started using it, I had tried everything except injections. Everyone started complimenting my face out of nowhere. When I ran out, I could immediately tell a difference, and now I don't think I can do without it. It keeps acne at bay, my face is free of dry spots, and completely just firms up my face. I can't say enough about this product! I'm so glad to finally find products that actually make a difference!

    I love the Resurface + Restore Youth Revealing System. Since I’ve used it, which is for almost a year now, I’ve noticed that my skin is smoother and has a glow that I never had before. My pores have diminished in size and my skin feels tighter.

    It’s like getting a mini facial at home! Now My makeup goes on flawlessly as well. No more dry patches. It’s the perfect compliment to all the other amazing Beverly Hills MD products that I use on a daily basis. I am now 67 and I wish I could have had these products 40 years ago!

    My skin feels smoother, softer, and I think it is helping to reduce the size of the milia (not sure the spelling of it, small pimple-like, but not) that I have on the face, which I got because I started to use sunscreen.

    I don't always get the results shown in your videos, but I do believe your messages about science and skin care, wish I had discovered your products 10 years ago. For this product, my skin feels smoother and my products seem to blend and absorb better into my face. I also use it on my hands to help boost my hand rejuvenating serum.

    Since using my skin has become softer, and less dry and papery. Michigan winters are very harsh on skin and this product works. I am 73 and this product has also helped with softening the wrinkles. People have noticed a change in my skin. I love this product. Thank you for your honest interest in caring to find out how your product works with those of us who make it part of your routine skin care regime.

  • Resurface + Restore probably my favorite

    • South Jordan, UT,
    • Apr 2, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    The Resurface + Restore might just be my favorite product in the line. I have had significant health issues over the past several years, my face tended to show the results, until I found this line of skin care. Since finding this product and the others in the MD line, I have been able to bring a beauty and glow to my skin that I never thought I had. I was not known for beautiful skin in the past, but since using these products I’m frequently being complimented on how beautiful my skin is. It makes me feel good that my problems with chronic pain are no longer written across my face. I tell everyone about what has brought on this change. I love this product.

    I am 63 years old and I have been using BHMD products for about two years. I am often told that I do not look my age. So, when I ordered the Resurface and Restore system, I expected nothing less than an excellent product. It has exceeded my expectations! The morning after my first application, my face still felt smooth and soft. After a week, I was amazed to notice that some of my brown age spots are lightening. I have been getting compliments from coworkers on how good my skin looks! Thank you for another amazing product!

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
