About Vein Vanish by Beverly Hills Beauty Lab
Vein Vanish Cream from Beverly Hills Beauty Lab uses an exclusive dual-action MDI Complex® and Veinless™ circulatory blend to help fortify the wall structure of your veins and improve circulation. The result?
We’re told you’ll be able to “dramatically” reduce the appearance of spider and varicose veins, prevent new ones from surfacing, and minimize the look of problem areas. You might even experience reduced soreness in your feet, legs, and ankles!
By applying to any area on your body once daily, the manufacturer claims Vein Vanish will leave you with smoother, more youthful looking skin, regardless of your age or skin type—even for sensitive skin.
In the end, in less than two minutes a day, Beverly Hills Beauty Lab tells us their fast-absorbing Vein Vanish complex will deliver results, quickly, painlessly, and without lasers or invasive procedures.
Does this mean Vein Vanish will deliver value in line with its price? In other words, will you get a lot for your money? Ultimately, we’re here to help you answer this primary question.
What Are Spider & Varicose Veins? How Do They Form?
Although spider veins and varicose veins are thought to affect roughly 50 percent of the population, there’s often some confusion between the two, so let’s quickly discuss their similarities and differences.
Spider Veins vs. Varicose Veins
Spider veins get their name from their spindly appearance, which generally twist and turn, are small, and feature a red or purple color. While spider veins are easily visible, they’re often located below the skin’s surface, without any texture.
Varicose veins are also often red, blue, or purple in color and twisted in appearance, although they’re meaningfully larger than spider veins.
Another big difference is that varicose veins tend to bulge at the surface of the skin, leading to a raised appearance.
What Causes Them to Occur?
Despite the differences in their appearance, varicose and spider veins are both caused by defective valves inside blood vessels.
Normally, these valves act as gateways to prevent backflow (i.e. blood going the wrong way). In some instances, they don’t work as intended, allowing blood to backflow and pool inside the blood vessel.
This also creates internal pressure that dilates the blood vessel, leading to a swollen appearance.
Who’s at Risk to get Spider Veins?
Just about anyone can get spider or varicose veins, although they’re more common among women than men.
Other factors that can increase your susceptibility include age, obesity, a family history of these types of veins, a job that requires you to stand on your feet for long periods of time, pregnancy, and more.
The good news is that spider and varicose veins often come without any symptoms, although some may experience throbbing or aching. But they certainly don’t look good, so is there anything in Vein Vanish that can help?
Are Vein Vanish Cream's Ingredients Effective?
According to the Beverly Hills Beauty Lab website, Vein Vanish contains the following ingredients (only active ingredients are hyperlinked):
Deionized Water, Glycosaminoglycans, Glycerin (Vegetal Derived), Ceteareth-20, Cetearyl Alcohol, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Lecithin (Soy Derived), Dicaprylyl Ether, Escin, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Algae Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Isononyl Isononanoate, Glyceryl Stearate, Ruscus Aculeatus Root (Butcher's Broom) Extract, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Extract, Solidago Viraurae (Goldenrod) Extract, Passiflora Incarnata (Passion) Fruit Extract, Artemisia Princeps Leaf (Japanese Mugwort) Extract, Caffeine, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Carica Papaya Fruit Extract, Chaenomeles Sinensis (Chinese Quince) Fruit Extract, Chrysanthellum (Chrysanthemum) Indicum Extract, Cinnamomum Cassia (Cinnamon) Bark Extract, Citrillus Lanatus (Watermelon) Fruit Extract, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Seed Extract, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Diospyros Kaki (Persimmon) Leaf Extract, Euterpe Oleracea (Acai) Fruit Oil, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Lens Esculenta (Lentil) Fruit Extract, Orbignya Oleifera (Babassu) Seed Oil, Oryza Sativa Rice Bran Oil, Menthol, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Passiflora Edulis (Passionflower) Seed Oil, Phytonadione (Vitamin K1), Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Butylene Glycol, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary Leaf) Extract, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Fragrance (Parfum), Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Lactate, Sodium PCA, Benzophenone-4, Polysorbate 60, Sodium Acrylate/ Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Caprylhydroxamic Acid, Caprylyl Glycol, Potassium Sorbate, Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate
The vast majority of Vein Vanish’s ingredients act as skin conditioners, emollients, solvents, and preservatives. In other words, they help the product feel better and last longer, but might not provide any of the vein-fighting power promoted by Beverly Hills Beauty Lab.
However, escin (often also spelled as aescin) is a mixture of different compounds found in the horse chestnut plant, which WebMD lists as “possibly effective” for reducing the symptoms of poor blood circulation, including pain, leg swelling, and more.
In order to experience these benefits, they recommend taking 300mg per day.
Arnica is also listed as possibly effective for osteoarthritis; 150mg of Butcher’s Broom for relieving symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency in the legs, and ginkgo for reducing leg pain caused by poor blood flow.
As you probably guessed though, WebMD notes these benefits are only related to the ingestion of these ingredients, but not necessarily when applied topically to the skin.
With this said, the topical application of caffeine (including the natural caffeine content found in green tea) can temporarily tighten skin and improve its appearance.
What about side effects?
What Results Can You Expect With Vein Vanish? Are There Any Potential Side Effects?
Beverly Hills Beauty Lab tells us that the majority of Vein Vanish users can expect to experience “significant” results in most cases.
However, they note that severe instances may no longer be responsive to topical treatments, thereby requiring medical intervention. In other cases, a person’s skin simply might not be responsive to the ingredients.
From a side effects perspective, WebMD recommends looking for standardized horse chestnut versions (not ones containing raw plant material) that “have had the toxic substance esculin removed.”
For Arnica, they indicate:
“Amounts that are larger than the amount found in food are LIKELY UNSAFE when taken by mouth. In fact, arnica is considered poisonous and has caused death.”
Fortunately, with Vein Vanish, you’ll be applying arnica to your skin instead of taking it by mouth, but its poisonous nature might be worth keeping in mind.
Finally, when applied to the skin, WebMD indicates that ginkgo “might cause an allergic reaction in people who are allergic to poison ivy, poison oak, poison sumac, mango rind, or cashew shell oil.”
How Much Does Beverly Hills Beauty Lab Vein Vanish Cost?
The price of a 4 fl oz jar of Vein Vanish seems to differ a great deal, depending on where it’s purchased. For example, on the main Beverly Hills Beauty Lab website, you’ll pay:
- 1 Jar: $120
- 2 Jars: $216
- 3 Jars: $306
However, if purchased through their NoMoreSpiderVeins website, you’ll pay a heck of a lot less:
- 1 Jar: $49
- 2 Jars: $86
- 3 Jars: $120
Regardless of which site you choose, all Vein Vanish orders come with free shipping and a 60-day refund policy, less S&H.

What else do we know about the company?
Who Makes Vein Vanish? Are There Any Customer Reviews?
The Doctors Behind Beverly Hills Beauty Lab
Vein Vanish is brought to you by Beverly Hills Beauty Lab, based out of—you guessed it—Beverly Hills, CA.
The company is headed by Drs. John Layke and Payman Danielpour, who also run the Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group, along with another anti-aging brand named Beverly Hills MD (more in a second).
Prior to founding these companies, Dr. Danielpour trained at the Mount Sinai Medical Center and the Long Island Plastic Surgery Group, and is currently a board certified plastic surgeon and a member of The American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Dr. John Layke trained in General Surgery at the University of Illinois Metropolitan Group Hospitals, as well as in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Nassau University Medical Center in New York.
Dr. Layke is double Board-Certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
Feedback for Their Products
Beverly Hills Beauty Lab seems to be a very new venture for Drs. Layke and Danielpour, as Vein Vanish was their only product at the time of our research, and there wasn’t any online customer feedback yet.
On the other hand, their Beverly Hills MD product line, including Dark Spot Corrector, Crepe Correcting Body Complex, Lift + Firm Sculpting Cream, and more, had a very positive reader reputation here on HighYa.
Among hundreds of reviews, these products boasted an average rating of about 4.5 stars, with common compliments referencing effective results and high quality (skin feel, fragrance, etc.).
By far the most common complaint is that they didn't work as advertised, although in these instances, the company seemed quick to respond in an attempt to find an amicable resolution.
Obviously, none of this necessarily means you’ll experience the same with Vein Vanish, but it should help provide a clearer picture of the overall situation.
Can You Expect Real-World Results From Vein Vanish?
When it comes to Beverly Hills Beauty Lab’s Vein Vanish, we’ll repeat the same thing we often find ourselves saying about much of the original Beverly Hills MD lineup:
Authority websites like WebMD indicate there is little clinical evidence showing that—when applied topically—any of the individual ingredients in Vein Vanish can meaningfully address spider or varicose veins, or general circulation.
However, based on the fact that many of Beverly Hills MD’s products come with glowing customer reviews, it may be the case that the company has figured out how to combine ingredients in a way that delivers collective efficacy.
Will this be the case with Vein Vanish? We’ll just have to wait until customer reviews start rolling in to find out.
In the meantime, if you feel like being a pioneer and placing your order, the company seems to stand behind Vein Vanish with a 60-day refund policy, less S&H.
In the event you decide to keep your jar(s) of Vein Vanish Cream, we’d recommend ordering from their NoMoreSpiderVeins website, which could save you a significant amount of money.

Beverly Hills Vein Vanish
I used it as directed, but this product showed no change in the appearance of spider veins on legs. It does not work as advertised. The product was returned for a refund, which I am uncertain that I received because I was never notified as requested. I would definitely not recommend this product and wonder if this company's other products result in similar outcomes.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

How much time will this take to work?
This cream has a nice consistency and feels good on my legs. I do not have a lot of spider veins, but the ones I have are not pretty, and I would like them to "vanish." So far I have used one jar and really have not seen any difference, not sure how much time it should take so am starting the second jar with high hopes. Because of the way it was advertised, I did expect a difference by now.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
