Beverly Hills MD Cosmeceuticals VENOX ANTI-AGING SERUM | Review

Press Sample (Unaffiliate Links)

While one intellectually knows that there is no such thing as a real fountain of youth that will turn back the hands of time, one does know that a healthy lifestyle coupled with high quality skincare products can go a long way to maintaining the youthful appearance of one's skin. It is inevitable that we lose collagen as we age, and the result is that skin becomes less taut and more lined. However, there is a whole new breed of highly effective products that offer a viable alternative to injectables and fillers. This is not to say that one can make an apples to apples comparison between something like Botox and a topical product that purports to reduce the appearance of expression lines by inhibiting muscle contractions. That said, high quality topicals can work wonders, and may be the closest thing to the fountain of youth without a trip to the plastic surgeon or cosmetic dermatologist.

As I have repeatedly mentioned in these virtual pages, I am very interested in the whole new breed of beauty products that dermatologists and plastic surgeons have been creating for their patients– because they employ their extensive training and knowledge in crafting highly effective products targeted to the concerns of their patients, and without the typical marketing hype that one encounters with big brand department store lines. Therefore, I was delighted to try Beverly Hills MD Cosmeceuticals VENOX Anti-Aging Serum.

Beverly Hills MD Cosmeceuticals was created by Beverly Hills plastic surgeons Dr. John Layke and Dr. Payman Danielpour, who are well-known and well respected doctors here in Los Angeles.

According to Dr. John Layke and Dr. Payman Danielpour:

As Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeons, we work together to solve the most difficult and complex appearance problems faced by people of all ages and all walks of life on a daily basis.

Every day, we feel more and more passionate about our profession: helping people of all ages look and feel their very best.

Our passion for helping people is what drives us. As surgeons, we see firsthand the frustrations and suffering that affect the lives of our patients. Often, it’s not just their appearance that’s in our hands: it’s their confidence.

We have learned over the years how deeply people experiencing cosmetic difficulties deserve to be helped. Life simply cannot be lived to its fullest by those who feel that they have to hide their appearance from the world. This is the philosophy that drives us to create real, accessible solutions for those struggling with the visible effects of aging, acne, scarring, and other difficult cosmetic issues.

We have also learned that surgical solutions are not for everyone. We have worked tirelessly to produce a line of products that can help everyone, including those who elect not to undergo cosmetic procedures.

We see countless patients who have tried product after product, spending hundreds or even thousands of dollars on potential solutions that only created more disappointment. These patients are seeking real solutions, but access to products that truly work is unfortunately limited in today’s market, leading to more frustration.

Many people give up the hope that they can truly look and feel their best. We see many patients who feel a deep hopelessness that they can never achieve the appearance they want without surgery - and for them, we created Beverly Hills MD.

The Beverly Hills MD product line includes only the highest-quality ingredients, and excludes any ingredients that can cause unwanted side effects. We strongly believe in solving patients’ most pressing problems, without creating new ones.

Countless hours of research go into finding the exact formulas that target specific skincare concerns for dramatic results our patients can be proud of. When we see a patient holding his or her head high for the first time, it reaffirms our dedication and passion for our craft.

In our office, we can only see a limited number of patients; but by creating a revolutionary product line and dispensing valuable advice to people around the world, we can share the joys of renewed confidence with you, no matter where you are, without an appointment.

Our mission does not, however, end at our practice and our product line. We do not want to simply create solutions and walk away: we want our patients to understand why various problems are occurring, what solutions are available to them, and what those solutions actually entail.

As trusted experts in our field, we have presented our findings and expertise at both national and international conferences. And here, we are able to share our knowledge with people around the world learn more and more about the treatments that are right for them. We are deeply moved by the fact that our advice continues to help thousands of people look and feel their best every day, and we are dedicated to continuing on this mission always.
Beverly Hills MD Cosmeceuticals Venox Anti-Aging Serum "is a state-of-the-art anti-aging serum that is unique in both its formulation and its results. It contains SYN®-AKE, a synthetic peptide created to mimic the action of snake venom to help relax deep expression lines and wrinkles. Meanwhile, powerful collagen-stimulating peptides help to rebuild the skin’s structural foundation, resulting in plumper, firmer skin that looks years younger."

While I neither have deep lines, nor do I have wrinkles, I have most definitely seen a difference in my fine lines since I began using Beverly Hills MD Cosmeceuticals Venox Anti-Aging Serum. My fine lines are softened and lifted, and the "11" expression line between my eye brows is barely discernible. The efficacy of this product lies in the ingredients used and their respective concentrations.

SYN®-AKE effectively inhibits muscle contractions, and as a result it reduces the appearance of expression lines. Palmitoyl Peptides work wonders in stimulating collagen production, which in turn creates younger and plumper-looking skin. Extracts from the Ginkgo Biloba Tree, which are anti-oxidant rich, aid in delaying the effects of aging. Aloe Leaf Extract deeply moisturizes the skin, and has the added benefit of firming and lifting.

According to Beverly Hills MD. "this powerful anti-aging formula helps to dramatically reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles and fine lines, while promoting collagen production and cell turnover for smoother, younger-looking skin."

Benefits:
  • Minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduces facial muscle cell contractions to target deep expression lines
  • Boosts collagen levels to increase skin elasticity
  • Gives skin a tighter, firmer look
  • Deeply hydrates skin
Suggested Use: "Beverly Hills MD Venox Anti-Aging Serum can be applied up to twice daily. For best results, a nighttime application is recommended, as skin’s regenerating processes are at their most efficient during sleep. First, clean and dry skin thoroughly. Then, apply Venox with clean fingertips using upward circular motions. Be sure not to pull or tug at skin. Venox is best applied all over the face and neck, but can be concentrated specifically on fine lines or wrinkles as desired."
The texture of the serum is light and fast absorbing with a very faint scent that fades immediately. It is filled with nourishing ingredients, and thankfully is not a silicone-based product. My skin is left smoother, lifted, moisturized and beautifully luminous, and it is so effective that I will replace this bottle as soon as I finish it!

  1. I just reviewed this, though not as thoroughly as you did. At first I was worried that the fragrance would put me off but it's there one second and gone the next. I've been using this every day and don't want to switch to test others.

    1. Of course we do, my twinsy! They have a unique perspective since they are treating patients, and aren't simply chemists in a lab. Their education coupled with their hands-on application gives them a bit of an advantage in many respects! Thank you, Kath– that means a great deal coming from you! xoxox

  6. Syn-ake is supposed to be all the rage in Korea. I have to try skincare with Syn-ake before I develop lines.

  9. I just ordered the Dark Spot remover. Now I am reading not so good reviews. If after a month it isn't working, it is going back. I fell for the upsell too, and I know better. 4 bottles total

    1. Hi Leatha,

      I have only tried their VENOX Anti-Aging Serum, but have been very impressed by the results! Neither good, nor bad reviews with skincare products can determine how your skin will react to the products being considered since everyone's skin responds differently. Hopefully you will get good results from the 4 products that you bought from them! Which other products did you get? Keep me posted, I would be very interested to hear what you think about their products!

  10. I ordered the sculpting cream~
    It is HEAVILY PERFUMED!
    I can not use it~
    Why would a product claiming to rely so heavily on nature, resort to such an awful. oder?

    1. Hi Faith,

      I have only tried their VENOX Serum, and it barely has any scent at all, and it definitely doesn't bother me in the least bit. It is very odd that the Sculpting Cream that you purchased from them is heavily perfumed! You should get in touch with them and the,ll them that you can't use for that reason. I would return it if you can't tolerate the scent.

  11. I have the sculpting serum and don't find its scent as offensive at all. It barely stays on once the product is on your skin. I actually like the smell of it.

  12. I've been using their sculpting cream for a month now and don't find the parfum smell offensive at all. Once it's on your skin, the smell does'nt linger. I actually like using it! Having have said that, I don't think this company represents/ advertises organic products hence they add a very small amount of perfume. I personally think that if the positive results out weighs the smell of the product and as long as it's tolerable to the user, it's worth the hassle.

    1. Hi Gladys, I haven't tried their sculpting cream, but I have been curious about it. I agree with you about scented skincare products. If they fade they definitely don't bother me in the least– especially if I can see the benefits. I have numerous friends, however, who are so sensitive to any fragrance in their makeup and skincare products that they avoid them at all costs.
