Published on: Oct 28, 2014

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.

    I have used Anti Aging Lip Enhancer previously and loved it. I had some medical problems this past year and did not use it for a while. I recently found a Lip Enhancer in one of my makeup draws. I started using again and immediately saw a difference. My lips became fuller. I originally ordered 4 Anti Aging Lip for Christmas gifts, due to backorders I never received. They ended up canceling my order.

    I’ve been using Lift + Firm Sculpting Cream for about a month. I can’t say that I have seen much change, but I am still very hopeful. Maybe it is because I am 69 and it takes longer to lift and firm. I will continue using it!

    I will say that I do not like the scent, but I keep using it anyway.

  • Marionette lines/Nasolabial folds

    I have the beginning of lines from my nose to lips and lips down to my chin. These have developed within the last year. I have been using the filler daily and have noticed some improvement. I guess I was anticipating more rapid results. I will continue to use the product. It took a year to get where I am today so I will continue to see if the results become more dramatic.

    This is the only wrinkle filler that works. If I could afford to use it every day, I would. I use it under and over makeup. It’s also a great touch up. It applies easily and fills in the vertical line above my lips which has always been a challenge. Thank you Beverly Hills MD.

    I first tried the cream when on vacation at my sisters, she shared a jar with me along with the Dermal Repair. I loved it so much I ordered my own after using daily for 6 weeks. I love how soft it makes my skin and I think it makes my fine lines less noticeable. I'm a believer.

    I have to admit I was very hesitant about the filler wrinkles cream from Dr. Layke but I decided to give it a try and wow, it really makes a big difference. My skin feels a lot smoother and wrinkles go away on the spot. I wish they could have a bigger presentation of this product.

    Finally! Something that WORKS!

    • By Marsha D.,

    I have religiously used another line of products for over a decade. As I have evolved into "middle-age" none of the products I have loved so dearly and used religiously for most of my adult life, have continued to give me the same results.

    I have tried every product I could find, from pure Vitamin A, to tretinoin gel, Tazorac, Retin A, salicylic acid, hyaluronic acid...you name it!

    I absolutely love BHMD products and I think I have found what I need for the next decade.

    Thank you!

    Beverly Hills breakthrough that beats Botox!

    • By Alona B.,

    • Verified Reviewer

    FINALLY! I am a 53-year "young" woman, thanks to these products! After more than 10 years of buying tons of other products for my skin and just so frustrated because none of them really worked, I broke down and tried the Beverly Hills filler, I immediately saw my skin changing, it was smoother, more supple, and the lines were actually less noticeable. I was so impressed with the filler that I purchased the Lift + Firm Sculpting Cream and was so astonished by the results that I got with this product, so I purchased the Deep Regenerating Stem Cell Moisturizer and the Crepe Correcting Body Complex. These products have truly made a difference in my overall skin appearance. I have finally found products at the Beverly Hills MD Cosmeceuticals that really and truly work! If you are tired of looking for products that don't provide you with great results, look no further, I promise you will not regret any purchase of any product from the BHMD because these boys know their stuff! I would just like to thank you guys for creating products that actually work and for a very reasonable price!

    It seems better than most over-the-counter. I'm not sure if I notice any reduction in wrinkles but I think the surface of my skin has a better feel. I think my skin seems better hydrated and smoother.

  • Love the lip enhancer

    • By Gail H.,

    • Verified Reviewer

    I have used City Lips for years. It was the only one that truly plumped with long-lasting effects. Your lip enhancer is the same. I actually think I like it better. You love to see it come in colors. I do use it as a base layer. Let it dry and add lip liner or lipstick and add it as a gloss.

    I will order more after I use the tubes I ordered.

    Thank you.

  • Instant perk!

    • By Katie C.,
    • Massachusetts,
    • Jan 16, 2020
    • Verified Reviewer

    My skin is dry and if I'm not vigilant, it can lose moisture and appear dull as the day moves on. That's why I LOVE 24-hour hydrating Rose Mist! I mist my face several times throughout the day and receive an instant PERK - not only from the hydration and soft feel of the mist on my face, but from the soul-nourishing scent of rose. I am sensitive to too much scent in products, but this formulation is just the right amount - so much so that I look forward to misting my face and keeping the lovely glow it provides. I've learned to order at least 2-3 bottles at once and sometimes carry one with me. You will love this!
