Beverly Hills MD is a line of cosmoceuticals that are claimed to treat and prevent some of the most difficult skin problems and to provide real, accessible solutions that can help you look and feel your very best.

In fact, by including “revolutionary, clinically-proven ingredients,” Beverly Hills MD claims that their products have “broken new ground in anti-aging technology.”

Beverly Hills MD Anti-Aging Products

Founded by two plastic surgeons Drs. John Layke & Dr. Payman Danielpour, Beverly Hills MD’s anti-aging products are claimed to be safe and effective and to contain only the highest quality ingredients that are free of harsh chemicals and irritants.

In addition, Beverly Hills MD claims that none of their products are tested on animals. These include:

  • Venox Anti-Aging Serum – Contains SYN®-AKE, a synthetic peptide that inhibits muscle contractions and promotes collagen production for firmer, younger-looking skin, and the reduced appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles. Also includes palmitoyl peptides, ginkgo biloba extracts, and aloe leaf extract.

  • Scar Recovery Restoration Serum – Claims to be an intense, rapid treatment that reduces the appearance of all types of scarring. Contains APT-GPF, a red marine algae, Actipone green papaya, Lanablue (another form of algae), Erasyl, Fiflow BTX, Abyssine, oat extract and oat beta glucan.

  • Wrinkle Repair Night Treatment – Claims to be “formulated with Nobel Prize-winning ingredients,” including Grant-X, epidermal growth factor (EGF), InvisaSkin Matrix Rebuilder-O, and hyaluronic acid to stimulate collagen production, soften fine lines and wrinkles, and rebuild skin from the inside out.

  • Lash Enhancing Serum – a non-prescription eyelash treatment that claims to use Myristol Pentapeptide-17 and hyaluronic acid to help your eyelashes grow “dramatically longer, thicker, denser, and darker,” while also helping them become healthier and stronger.

  • Dark Spot Corrector – Claims to use Kakadu plum, DermalRx, daisy flower extract, and niacinamide (Vitamin B3) to help break up excessive pigment, diminish the look of dark marks, and prevent them from recurring.

  • Lift + Firm Sculpting Cream – Claims to contain Progeline, caviar extract, Liftessence, Idealift, Sculptessence, and silk peptides to help enhance your skin’s internal support structure, thereby lifting it and giving a firmer, tighter look.

According to the Beverly Hills MD website, their products should be used 1-4 times per day, depending on the type of product you’re using and the desired effect you’re looking to achieve. Because of this, be sure to read all included instructions before applying.

Beverly Hills MD Product Ingredients Breakdown

Beverly Hills MD products contain a number of proprietary ingredients from third-party manufacturers, as well as some that we’ve never seen included in an anti-aging product before, so let’s take a closer look at each.

Venox Anti-Aging Serum

SYN®-AKE is a product of Pentapharm, and is claimed to mimic the activity of Temple Viper venom by relax facial muscles for decreased appearance of lines and wrinkles. The company claims that clinical trials show SYN®-AKE to be effective, although the results are not available through third-party websites.

Palmitoyl peptides may help trick your skin’s cells into creating more collagen, thereby enhancing its appearance. However, it’s important to note that there are numerous types of peptides, and we’re not informed which ones are present in Venox.

Ginkgo biloba and aloe leaf extract contain high levels of antioxidants, which can help your skin prevent damage caused by free radicals. However, whether or not Venox Anti-Aging Serum contains enough of these ingredients to make any difference in your skin is unclear.

Scar Recovery Restoration Serum

APT-GPF, is a product of Centerchem, and is derived from red marine algae to “increase cell turnover, firmness, elasticity and smoothness and bring about fine line reduction.” However, neither Centerchem nor any third-party websites provide copies of the trial’s results.

There isn’t much information available online about Actipone green papaya, although it appears to provide antioxidant properties.

Lanablue, created by LucasMeyer Cosmetics, claims to be extracted from blue-green algae from the Cascadia region, and to smooth skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. However, clinical trials are not available online.

Erasyl appears to be focused on boosting collagen production, although very little information is available about this ingredient online.

Created by The Innovation Company, Fiflow BTX is claimed to instantly relax muscles and fill in facial lines and wrinkles. No clinical trials were available online at the time of our research.

Another LucasMeyer product, Abyssine claims to be an exopolysaccharide harvested from extremophil living near deep-sea vents that can reduce “the expression of ICAM-1 (a skin stress marker involved in skin reactivity).” This document provides an outline of what was found during clinical trials, although there are no copies of these trials available online.

Oat extract and oat beta glucan are included for their moisturizing properties.

Wrinkle Repair Night Treatment

Grant-X is claimed to be clinically proven to “gently improve the appearance of facial fine line and wrinkles by over 50%.” However, there is no third-party verification of this clinical study available online.

Epidermal growth factor (EGF) is a “growth factor that stimulates cell growth, proliferation, and differentiation” and may help reduce the signs of aging.

Created by Grant Industries, InvisaSkin Matrix Rebuilder-O claims to be an “anti-aging skin care complex combining the activity of Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-14 and plant derived glycoconjugates (Goji berry extract) for a maximum synergistic effect rebuilding skin's extra cellular matrix.” However, copies of clinical trials were not available online.

Hyaluronic acid is a common ingredient found in almost all anti-aging products, although WebMD states that there is insufficient evidence showing that it can prevent the effects of aging.

Lash Enhancing Serum

Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17 is a peptide found in many eyelash products and has been shown to help some individuals lengthen and strengthen their lashes. However, this effect is often minimal, and there are some serious side effects related to its use, so you should speak with your physician before using.

Dark Spot Corrector

Kakadu plum (Terminalia ferdinandiana) is a flowering plant containing high levels of Vitamin C, which can act as an antioxidant and shield your skin from free radical damage.

DermalRx, a BioCogent product, is claimed to provide a variety of anti-aging benefits. However, it’s important to note that there are 5 different DermalRx formulations, although we’re not advised which one is included here.

As with most of these other formulations, there is no clinical evidence provided to support these claims.

Daisy flower extract is a common ingredient in lightening creams and serums, although there is no clinical evidence available showing its efficacy.

Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) has a vast number of benefits, although WebMD claims that there is insufficient evidence showing it can provide any anti-aging benefits.

Lift + Firm Sculpting Cream

The third LucasMeyer Cosmetics ingredient used in Beverly Hills MD products, Progeline is a biomimetic peptide derived from Elafin that claims to reduce signs of aging, specifically sagging and wrinkles located around the jawline. No clinical trials could be confirmed, however.

Caviar extract is a relatively recent ingredient in anti-aging products, and any clinical trials conducted are the property of the respective manufacturers. However, this FutureDerm article claims, “But it’s difficult to know exactly what you’re getting under the name “caviar extract,” particularly because it seems to be a catch-all for ingredients that come from fish eggs in general.”

Two more LucasMeyer products, Liftessence and Sculptessence, are claimed to decrease wrinkles and volume along the jawline, with no clinical studies available to back up these claims.

Idealift is claimed to support tissue structure and stimulate elastin synthesis.

As with the other peptides present in Beverly Hills MD products, silk peptides are claimed to reduce the signs of aging due to their natural water solubility.

Who Is Dr. John Layke and Dr. Payman Danielpour?

Dr. John Layke & Dr. Payman Danielpour are co-owners of Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group based out of Beverly Hills, CA. Overall, looking at websites such as Yelp.com, Vitals.com, and HealthGrades.com, the doctors and their practice appear to have a mostly customer positive reputation.

Before co-founding Beverly Hills MD, Dr. Layke attended medical school at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, FL, trained in General Surgery at the University of Illinois Metropolitan Group Hospitals, and concluded his surgical training at the prestigious Long Island Plastic Surgical Group.

Dr. Layke is board certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery and is affiliated with the top-ranked Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

In addition to his integral role at Beverly Hills MD, where he focuses on using natural, “cutting edge” ingredients to “reclaim lost youth,” Dr. John Layke is a frequent guest on radio programs and TV shows, as well as the author of several published articles in reputable medical and surgical journals.

Bottom Line

As part of an industry that’s constantly evolving and trying to outdo the competition in one way or another, Beverly Hills MD’s anti-aging products include a lot of proprietary, third-party ingredients that sound really cool and are made to appear effective, although verifiable clinical trials for these products appear to be scarce.

This would lead us to suggest speaking with your dermatologist about whether or not Beverly Hills MD products are right for you.

    Yes, it makes my skin feel soft, however, I was hoping that it would help my crepe neck skin more. I do love to sun and understand that does not help, but there should be some way to fix this without the word "surgery".

    I found this product by accident and decided to give it a try. The first time I used it, it reminded me of the older face masks that were popular years ago. Upon rinsing the product from my face I found myself impressed. My face actually looked like it had new skin that had been polished. Plus it also felt and appeared to be firmer. I was happy I happened to click on an advertisement and didn't know you had this product. Great job!

  • Deep Wrinkle Filler is awesome

    • Miami, FL,
    • Sep 18, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I have been using Beverly Hills MD products for several years now and I can't begin to tell you how pleased I am with the complete product line.

    My friends have told me what a beautiful complexion I have and that I look 10-15 years younger than I actually am - not bad for almost being 70 years old! I feel like I look better and am much more confident about my appearance.

    I especially like using the Deep Wrinkle Filler because it really works! For stubborn wrinkles, around my eyes and in my nasolabial folds, I simply apply a bit of the Deep Wrinkle Filler, wait a minute till its dry, and then apply my make up. I love the way it softens and smooths out those deep "laugh lines" and takes years off my appearance!

    I have tried other products which promise to deliver getting rid of wrinkles or filling in wrinkles only to be disappointed when, after applying make-up, the product has rubbed off.

    Beverly Hills MD Deep Wrinkle Filler is remarkable! It delivers on its promise. It fills in those deep wrinkles and stays put. I honestly say that I do not believe there is another product on the market that can compare.

    I love using the Deep Wrinkle Repair and am a very satisfied customer!

  • AMAZING RESULTS

    • San Jose, CA,

    Started using Deep Wrinkle Filler from the day I received it. Firstly, it smelled nice, wasn’t sticky, smooth feeling and very light. You only need to apply a small amount on a clean face, to see immediate results. With every use, I would find myself needing to apply less and less with still amazing results. I’ve bought every cream and serum on the market but never one that produced consistent results every time. I love how it stays on, doesn’t easily come off, especially when makeup applied over the top of it. And sometimes I even pat another light layer over makeup on deeper lines or areas with flawless looking results. This is my one and only go-to filler. I won’t bother with others as the ingredient are top-notch, results amazing, cost is higher than others but lives up to what it’s supposed to do, which is what we all want. Love the product, a very happy customer!

  • Deep Wrinkle Filler

    • Georgia,
    • Sep 16, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    At first I didn't think it was working but as usual, I hadn't given it a chance to work. After about 3 weeks I was noticing a difference in the texture of my skin. A little while later a friend of mine that I hadn't seen for awhile asked me what I was doing, I asked him what was I doing about what. He had told me I looked younger than before. At that moment he had made my day and I told him he was my new best friend! So it truly does work! Just need to give it time. The only drawback was the syringe the filler comes in looks a lot fuller than it actually is, which was a bit disappointing. All in all, though, I would recommend this product.

    This product works well as long as you use it two times a day, every day. If you miss much you can tell the difference! It works best on frown lines and lip lines. Not as well on crows feet. Overall I would recommend giving it a try.

    Unexpected and noticeable results

    • Seattle, WA,
    • Sep 16, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I'm 28 but have a history of squinting in the sun as a former goalkeeper and furrowing my brow when I concentrate. So, much to my dismay, I have some prominent forehead wrinkles, including one vertical one between my eyebrows that especially bothers me. I had tried multiple expensive anti-wrinkle serums from beauty stores without noticing any changes, and was starting to think I might need Botox. After watching the online video, I decided to try this Deep Wrinkle Filler because, as a physician myself, the science convinced me. I've been using this now for a little over a month, and have definitely noticed a difference especially in that one bothersome vertical wrinkle. It's not gone altogether, but it's definitely less noticeable and I feel less embarrassed by it. I might be able to avoid Botox after all, at least for a little while!

  • Somewhat helpful

    • Portland, ME,

    I’ve been using the Deep Wrinkle Filler for a few weeks now. I mainly use it on the lines above my lip and between my eyes. I had great hopes for improvement by now, but I’m not sure I see any change. When I initially put it on, I think it lessens the appearance of the lines a bit. However, later when I catch my reflection during the day, I don’t see any improvement.

    I’m very good about applying the filler in the morning but don’t always remember to at bedtime. Perhaps, I will have better results when I apply it more regularly twice each day.

    In my case, maybe it will take longer for the results I hope to see.
