New Year Refresh with Upneeq

Posted on January 9, 2023 by: Dr. Rocheford

Acquired ptosis is a condition that causes the upper eyelids to sag, leading to an aged or tired appearance Upneeq is a prescription eyedrop that can improve this condition, giving you a refreshed look without the need for surgery!

How Does Upneeq Work?

Upneeq is the only FDA-approved prescription eyedrop for upper eyelid ptosis. The oxymetazoline solution causes the muscles in the upper eyelid to contact, lifting the lid temporarily. Results are clinically proven to last up to 8 hours so you can apply your eyedrops in the morning and enjoy an enhanced appearance all day! Upneeq not only enhances your appearance but also your vision since some people have difficulty seeing with excessively droopy eyelids.

How to Use Upneeq

Upneeq comes in single-use packages for easy daily use. All you have to do is cut open the foil wrapping with scissors, tilt your head back, gently pull your lower eyelid down, and apply one drop to each eye. Close your eye for 30 seconds and repeat on the other eye – it’s that quick and easy! Results can appear in as little as a few minutes or within 2 hours and typically last 8 hours.

Safety Precautions While Using Upneeq

Upneeq is a safe product but there are a couple of small precautions you should take to avoid adverse reactions. Be careful not to let the packaging touch your eye as you apply the eyedrops since this could scratch or irritate the eye. If you wear contact lenses, take them out before applying Upneeq and wait at least 30 minutes after the application to put them back in.

Who is a Candidate for Upneeq?

Patients with mild to moderate acquired ptosis who do not wish to have eyelid surgery or are still considering it can benefit from Upneeq. If you have a heart condition or blood pressure problem, please discuss this with Dr. Rocheford since you might not be a candidate due to the ingredients in the formula. Men and women of all ages can develop droopy eyelids so many people can benefit from a Upneeq prescription!
