Upneeq®: An Eye Opening Solution

While it is relatively new to the world of aesthetics, Upneeq® is already gaining significant traction for being the first and only prescription eye drop of its kind. In today’s blog post, we will give you an overview of what exactly Upneeq is and how it works so that you can determine if it is the right choice for you!

What is Upneeq?

As we age, the upper eyelids begin to sag or droop (ptosis) due to a skin elasticity loss. Upneeq is a unique and innovative prescription eye drop that addresses ptosis. The single, daily dose formula works by temporarily lifting the muscle of the upper eyelid, allowing the eyes to open wider. This results in a more youthful appearance and a fresh, rejuvenated look. Upneeq is a quick and effective medication that can display noticeable results in as little as 15 minutes. It is perfect for use before special events or everyday use to appear more awake and refreshed. Upneeq is a great non-surgical alternative to blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery.

How does Upneeq work?

The recommended dose for Upneeq is one drop instilled into each eye daily. However, daily use is not required to enjoy the benefits. The active ingredient in Upneeq is a 0.1% oxymetazoline hydrochloride ophthalmic solution, which can be found in common medications, such as nasal decongestant sprays. Oxymetazoline causes the muscles within the upper eyelid to tighten, allowing the eyes to open wider. While the lifting effect is temporary, visible improvements can be seen in just as little as 15 minutes and can last up to 8 hours.
