Frequently Asked Questions
In today’s fast-paced culture, simplicity has become a luxury. In an attempt to address the needs and desires of his exclusive clientele, Dr. Kaplan called on his 25+ years of medical experience to formulate a concise line of products designed to address a multitude of skin concerns using quality, effective ingredients and breakthrough medical science. Each and every KAPLAN MD product contains multiple active ingredients to offer incredible results in a simple, concise regimen.
“I really believe in making skincare simple. The easier the regimen, the more likely your patients will follow the regimen, and stick to it. I see my job as combining the most effective anti-aging ingredients into as few products as possible, so my patients have the best results without the hassle. Everything is so fast paced and complicated these days; true luxury is about taking the best solution, which is often the most complicated, and making it simple. I see KAPLAN MD as beautiful skin made simple.” – Dr. Stuart H. Kaplan
KAPLAN MD has pioneered some of the most standout trends in beauty today, boasting the most expensive ingredients list of any skincare brand currently on the market as well as being one of the first to offer 100% paraben, gluten, mineral oil and BPA free products to the consumer.
You may be familiar with older versions of this ingredient, Matrixyl and Matrixyl 3000, which worked to prevent fine lines and wrinkles. Matrixyl Synth’6 is the latest generation of this peptide, and is proven even more effective at decreasing wrinkles, improving skin texture, and promoting cellular renewal.
Matrixyl Synth’6 works by stimulating all the major constituents within the dermal matrix. This enhances collagen synthesis, which in turn effectively plumps and smoothes away wrinkles from inside the skin.
Matrixyl Synth’6 is contained in all KAPLAN MD Concentrate products, and in the concentration it was clinically tested for the most effective results against skin aging.
This Nobel Prize winning research allows us to pinpoint exactly what is responsible for aging on the cellular level, and that the length of the Telomere is what determines a cell’s lifespan. Juvinity™ works to ensure the length of the telomere, thereby delaying cell aging and increasing the skin cell’s energy and vitality.
Juvinity™ is contained in all KAPLAN MD Concentrate products, and in the concentration it was clinically tested for the most effective results against skin aging.
- Rhodendron Ferrugineum (Alp Rose) Leaf Stem Cell – harvested from an extremely resistant, rare, alpine flower that is known to grow in extreme conditions and withstand all climates. Works to increase the skin’s stem cell vitality, and protects against environmental stress.
- Vitis Vinifera (Gamay Teinturier Freaux Grape) Stem Cell – an extremely UV-resistant burgundy grape known for its protection against UV-stress. Protects against photo-aging by building up the skin’s UV-tolerance.
- Malus Domestica (Swiss Apple) Fruit Stem Cell – obtained from the rare Swiss apple known for its longevity and resolvability. Helps the skin’s stem cells to maintain their strength and structure, and capacity to regenerate new collagen.
While you receive the best results from using the full KAPLAN MD skincare regimen, the beauty of our products is that you can easily incorporate any KAPLAN MD product into your existing skincare regimen as well.

KAPLAN MD is a concise, fuss-free line of products that can treat and prevent the external signs of aging in men.
- “I HAVE COMBINATION SKIN. IS KAPLAN MD THE RIGHT SKINCARE LINE FOR ME?”
- “I’M BLACK AND HAVE OILY SKIN.”
- “I’M ASIAN AND HAVE DRY SKIN.”
- “I’M HISPANIC AND HAVE ACNE”…
It doesn’t matter! Starting the day we are born, every human being ages the same way. It is natural, it is inevitable, it is universal, and it is relentless. It does not discriminate based on race, gender, or skin type. If we have skin (and we all do), we will eventually face the signs of aging.
KAPLAN MD is the ONLY treatment line, where every product in the line treats causes of skin aging regardless of age, sex and ethnicity.
KAPLAN MD products are also safe, and do not contain parabens, mineral oil, PABA, petrolatum, or BPA.
Keep in mind that your body goes through many changes during pregnancy, and your hormones will fluctuate. You will experience various symptoms, and your skin, which is your body’s largest organ, is no exception. One example of this is acne. Another example would be if a lotion you have used all your life suddenly irritates your skin. So bear in mind that certain symptoms are due to your hormonal fluctuations, and not necessarily caused by your skincare product.
You may also be advised by your doctor to avoid certain product ingredients while pregnant, so please consult your doctor before using any new skincare regimen.

- Adult Acne

- Facial Hair Growth
- Photosensitivity (sensitive to sun exposure)
- Hypersensitivity (skin is more sensitive to irritation, allergies and bruising)
1. KAPLAN MD contains the most exclusive, medical-grade, patented ingredients in concentrations that they were clinically tested. This is an important distinction because most products contain only tiny amounts of patented ingredients just so they can make marketing claims. Dr. Kaplan formulated each product with ingredients at the concentrations they were clinically tested to ensure the best possible results. These include our exclusive BioFusion-3S Plant Stem Cells, Matrixyl Synth’6, Juvinity and 22 Certified Organic Extracts. (Read more on these individual ingredients below.)
2. KAPLAN MD is the only skincare line in the world that was specifically formulated to prevent and treat skin aging caused not only by time, but aging caused by the environment (sun damage, pollution, etc.) and hormonal progression as well.
3. KAPLAN MD incorporates an advanced vehicle and time-release delivery system. Many products on the market today feature only 1 or 2 “star” ingredients. However, every single KAPLAN MD product contains over 30 star ingredients. Why don’t other brands put in more patented ingredients? It is simply too expensive to produce, too hard to market, and near impossible to formulate. Dr. Kaplan’s vision was to take all the best anti-aging ingredients in the world and combine them into the most concise line of products.
In addition, each product contains a time-release delivery system. This allows the ingredients to penetrate into the skin and get to where it needs to be. The ingredients are slowly time-released so your skin is nourished and protected throughout the day.
4. BPA-Free (Bisphenol-A) Packaging. BPA is a byproduct in most consumer plastics, and has been banned in Europe and in plastic baby bottles here in the U.S. As the leader in skincare and skin science, Dr. Kaplan encased all KAPLAN MD treatment products in high quality Italian glass bottles to not only preserve the purity and integrity of the formulas, but to altogether avoid the leaching of BPAs from plastic into the products.
All KAPLAN MD products that are contained in tubes or plastic containers are certified BPA free.
5. KAPLAN MD formulas are 100% paraben, sulfate and gluten free.
KAPLAN MD is different not only for what is inside our formulas, but what we keep out.
