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.

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.

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.

    I have been frustrated with my short lashes and have tried extensions and false eyelashes. Alas! I am allergic to the adhesive so had terrible eye swelling and itchy eyes. I also had tried another brand of lash serum, but it made my eyes swollen before I could see any results. I have been using Lash Enhancing Serum for about a month now, and find I can really see a difference in the length of my lashes and have not encountered any eye issues as a result of its use. I highly recommend it for anyone with sensitive skin.

    I appreciate the ease of using your lash enhancing serum as with my busy schedule I feel like I am still able to be proactive in self-care.

    I work full time, care for my two puppies, house and husband, as well as help maintain our 2 acres.

    We had a fire on our lower property last week and although scary the firefighters thanked us for having such "defensible" property. This takes a lot of time and energy so I appreciate the ease of using the lash serum at the end of a long day!

    Thank you for your many wonderful products.

    I have been using Beverly Hills MD products for a couple of years and have been most pleased with the results. In fact, when I say that I am 90 years old, people find it hard to believe. But I have been most unhappy with my eyes and my lashes. Although I have been using the lash enhancing serum for less than a month, I am beginning to see results. My lashes appear darker and longer. I am sure that now, with the new eye mask on its way, I will be more pleased when I look at photos of myself. Thanks.

    I have been using the lash enhancer for a while and have noticed a difference. I’ve been using it on my eyebrows and upper eyelashes. I used to have a very thin spot on my left eyebrow, and am in my mid-forties, so my brows are lighter, so about 6 months ago, I started filling them in with pencil. I recently attended a formal event and didn’t have to fill in my brows! My lashes are darker and seem fuller and longer - I’ve noticed that I feel them as they brush against my skin. I never had that before. People used to tell me I look tired if I wasn’t wearing mascara. I haven’t had that happen.

  • Nice lifting effect, but my skin is getting dry after applying

    I like the cream, nice texture, quick-absorbing and definitely lifting effect. My only problem is that after 30 minutes my skin is getting too dry. Maybe I need to apply moisturizer on top of the cream, please advise. Looking forward for feedback from office with recommendations.

    It's working!

    • Marcoola, Australia,

    My skin appears smoother and firmer.

    Given my age, I am shocked/delighted that results are visible this soon.

    With an exercise regime set in place of aqua cycling and aqua aerobics together with the Sculpting Cream, I feel I have the dynamite combination.

    The timing is perfect and I'm even seeing traces of the old me peeping through onto my face and neck.

    Who would've thought I had a chance to see it tighten and lose its swollen look.

    Having been bedridden for 6 or 7 years due to pain, crippling Rheumatoid arthritis and then, stem cells where once again I was told for the best results I was confined to bed rest and listening to what my body tells you: I have suffered muscular degeneration, swollen joints and puffiness in my face and body.

    My poor neglected face has had to endure two detached retinas (due to side effects of cutting-edge drugs).

    It's been a long haul...It's wonderful and so exciting to see what happens next because this cream does make a difference and makes its presence felt.

    It is soft and glides beautifully over my skin.

    I love this product. When I feel dry I put this serum on and my skin recovers quickly. Anywhere I wear it. What I don’t love is the dropper. I have to squeeze multiple times to get some serum and then when I close the bottle all the serum comes out. Great serum! Bad bottle.

    I was a bit skeptical when I began using the Deep Wrinkle Filler since I had used a couple of similar products made by other brands a few years ago. Both of those products failed completely in their promises which made me a bit skeptical about this one. However, I totally love every Beverly Hills MD product that I have ever used so I was definitely willing to give it a try. I was not disappointed! I had a deep vertical wrinkle between my eyebrows which nothing had seemed to help but to my amazement, I began to notice a difference after about 2 and 1/2 - 3 weeks. Little by little that valley was becoming smaller and smaller.

    This product is amazing! I was considering consulting someone to see what my options were to remedy this area but I believe that has now been taken care of completely. Don’t get me wrong. The wrinkle is still there, but instead of the Grand Canyon, I now have a small ditch!

    I order this cream for the black spots on my arms. Almost all of them have disappeared and I am very happy about that. Then the other cream is for my face. I like the fact that is light and smooth so I put it on my face and on my neck. I really like it!

  • I love BHMD products

    I am 73 and started using BHMD products 4 years ago. I usually am mistaken for 60-65 years old. I like the results. I love all the products but have finally determined the best ones for my needs.

    My only complaint:

    I find the auto-replenishment in quantity stressful. I do not use as much product as BHMD expects and always have too much on hand when I get refills in quantities of 3 or 6 to a shipping. I would rather auto replenish on my own schedule as most of my shopping online is auto replenish and the other vendors let the customer determine how often and how much product they need.
