Do you ever look in the mirror and notice that your eyes appear more tired than you actually feel? Drooping upper eyelids can cause this phenomenon, even when you feel energized and ready to take on the day on the inside.
The good news is that there is now an FDA-approved prescription eyedrop called UPNEEQ® that can lift your upper eyelids without the need for surgery.
What Causes Drooping Eyelids?
Acquired blepharoptosis, or low-lying eyelids, can be caused by a number of factors, including the natural aging process, eye injury, long-term use of contact lenses, long-term eye irritation and other factors. Genetics may also play a role in the likelihood of developing drooping upper eyelids.
How Does UPNEEQ Nonsurgical Eyelid Lift Work?
UPNEEQ is the first and only FDA-approved prescription eye drop for eyelid ptosis. It contains 0.1% oxymetazoline hydrochloride, which causes a muscle in the upper eyelid area called Muller’s muscle to contract. This lifts your upper eyelid, creating a more open and energetic appearance.
Simply put, UPNEEQ is a once-daily eye drop used to achieve a more youthful and wide-eyed appearance.
Who Is UPNEEQ Best For?
UPNEEQ is FDA-approved for the treatment of acquired ptosis, meaning that eyelid drooping occurred later in life, often due to aging. It is not currently a treatment for eyelid drooping present since birth.
