Beverly Hills MD Dark Spot Corrector is a “cosmeceutical” from Beverly Hills MD that promises its doctor formulated cream is guaranteed to diminish the appearance of dark spots and give skin a brighter, even look. They state it contains all natural ingredients and no bleaching agents so it’s safe for all types of skin and you will see results in a month.
What is a Cosmeceutical?
Cosmeceutical is a hybrid word of “cosmetic” and “pharmaceutical”, and is a term used to imply a medical benefit to a cosmetic. While this sounds legit, in reality the term cosmeceutical is not recognized by the FDA. However, since cosmetics are not regulated by the agency like pharmaceutical drugs are, the only thing the FDA can do is send warning letters to companies if they cross the fuzzy line when promoting their products. “Cosmeceuticals’ is a marketing term, not a legal definition,” noted Marina Peredo, MD.
How Beverly Hills MD Dark Spot Corrector Works
Beverly Hills MD Dark Spot Corrector contains Kakadu Plum (said to be rich in vitamin C), an ingredient named DermalRX (they say improves radiance), Daisy Flower Extract (skin lightening) and Niacinamide aka vitamin B3, they claim provides for an even skin tone. They tout it contains no harmful bleaching agents and can be used every day safely.
To use Beverly Hills MD Dark Spot Corrector, they tell you to first take a selfie of the area you are trying to improve, then apply up to 4 times a day. Be sure to exfoliate the skin 1-2 times a week and use sunscreen as well. Then, one month later, take another selfie: they promise you will see a visible difference in the spots on your skin.

Bottom Line: Is Beverly Hills MD Dark Spot Corrector a Scam?
Dr. John Layke and Dr. Payman Danielpour the plastic surgeons that run Beverly Hills MD as well as the Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group have their enthusiastic followers – they currently have a 5-star rating on Yelp.
But our investigation into their cosmeceuticals paints a different picture: over on our sister publication Highya, Dark Spot Corrector averages 3 stars from over 51 reviews, with only 46% recommending to a friend. Some people complain of “snake oil” that simply doesn’t work.
In our overview of Beverly Hills MD, we could find no clinical evidence that any of the ingredients of the Dark Spot Corrector aside from vitamin C had any proven benefits to the skin (and even that evidence is very limited). In conjunction with its high price tag, low ratings, and lack of proof, we suggest comparing it to creams with similar ingredients before making any decision.
Liver spots or age spots are perfectly natural, so there is nothing to be “cured”; that said many older people feel insecure and compulsively buy the hottest new product only to be disappointed in the results.
If you are interested in reducing dark spots, the Mayo Clinic recommends over-the-counter products that hydroquinone, glycolic acid or kojic acid but warn hydroquinone can cause irritation. Also, it’s a good idea to use sunscreen as well as limit exposure.
Remember, it takes time for any so-called spot removal creams to work and much of the time their effectiveness is minimal and subjective. Don’t spend too much money on them and keep your expectations low.
