Upneeq (oxymetazoline hydrochloride ophthalmic solution) is the world’s only FDA-approved prescription eyedrops for blepharoptosis, i.e., low-lying lids. If you have low-lying eyelids that affect your confidence, making you look tired or sleepy, this prescription medicine can lift your upper eyelids and open up your eyes. This is an ongoing treatment, so you have to take a daily drop of Upneeq to maintain the results.
What is Upneeq?
Lid Lift Corrects:
Acquired blepharoptosis, also known as acquired ptosis or low-lying lids. This is a condition wherein your upper eyelids droop down, making you look old, tired, or sleepy. In some cases, excessive ptosis may also reduce your visibility. Upneeq lifts your upper eyelids, improving your vision and confidence.
How it Works
Upneeq is an FDA-approved medicine that contains oxymetazoline hydrochloride, a vasoconstrictor that induces the contraction of the Müller’s muscle, which is responsible for opening the eyelid. One drop of Upneeq engages the Müller’s muscle, creating an upper eyelid lift that lasts for approximately 6 hours.
