Say Goodbye to Droopy Eyelids with UPNEEQ!
Are you frustrated by droopy eyelids and looking tired all the time? With age and genetics, the muscles in the body can weaken, including those in your face. Weak muscles around the eye can lead to drooping eyelids, which can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. More importantly, it can also make it harder to see. There are ways to correct drooping eyelids surgically, but there’s also a new, non-invasive new treatment option to perk up your eyes called UPNEEQ!
UPNEEQ is the only FDA – approved daily eye drop for adults with acquired ptosis (low-lying lids) that lifts your upper eyelids to open your eyes! UPNEEQ (oxymetazoline hydrochloride ophthalmic solution) 0.1%, works by stimulating an involuntary eyelid muscle, the Muller’s muscle, to contract and raise the upper eyelid (imagine your eyelid is a garage door and this muscle is the garage door opener).
How long do the effects of UPNEEQ last?
Most people see results quickly, in as soon as 15 minutes. Peak effects occur around 2 hours and last up to 8 hours.
What does it feel like? Is it hard to blink?
The physical feeling from UPNEEQ is subtle – UPNEEQ does not make blinking (or sleeping) difficult.
Can I use UPNEEQ more than once a day?
Studies have only been done on once daily use so we cannot recommend any usage more frequent than that.
Who should not use UPNEEQ?
Patients with uncontrolled hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and/or narrow-angle glaucoma should use UPNEEQ with caution.
Do I have to use UPNEEQ once every day?
No. UPNEEQ only lasts for 6-8 hours regardless of how often you use it. You could put in your UPNEEQ in the morning to make putting on eye make-up easier, or you could keep a vial with you to use as a pick-me-up when you’re on the mid-afternoon struggle bus. Or even save UPNEEQ for special events. The cost for UPNEEQ is $225 for a 45-day supply.
We are so excited to be able to offer UPNEEQ in our office, so stop by today to pick yours up and start feeling better about your eyes!
