I am pleased to announce that Aging Young Aesthetics is the first aesthetics practice in the region to offer UPNEEQ® (oxymetazoline hydrochloride ophthalmic solution), 0.1%. UPNEEQ® is an FDA-approved prescription eye drop that temporarily improves droopy eyelids, known as blepharoptosis, by rejuvenating tired-looking eyes.
We often have clients who visit our clinic wanting to improve droopy eyelids or acquired ptosis. Ptosis is a medical condition that older men and women tend to have. When the upper eyelid muscles stretch over time, the eyelids begin to droop. Adults who suffer from ptosis have had the upper lid muscles weaken and stretch due to cataract surgery, wearing contact lenses, or who suffer from underlying medical conditions. False eyelash wearers may also experience ptosis early.
Acquired eyelid ptosis can be mild, moderate, or severe, and the sleepy-eyed effect becomes more apparent as the ptosis progresses.
UPNEEQ® stimulates the eyelid or Muller’s muscle to raise the upper eyelid. In as little as 15 minutes, UPNEEQ® gives you a bright-eyed and more youthful look. Clinical trials have proven the amount of upper eyelid life is 1 mm, and 84% of patients notice a visible improvement. Clinical studies also prove an improvement in vision.
UPNEEQ® application is one drop a day per eye. The medication comes in single-patient containers to ensure the proper dose is correctly administered. Upload the required information or schedule a telemedicine consultation to see if you are a good candidate for UPNEEQ®. If you have ordered and paid, a refund will be issued if you are not a good candidate.
Now you can find an effective alternative to the cosmetic surgery procedure. With UPNEEQ®, there is no surgery, no downtime. Just brighter, well-rested eyes. Click here to purchase online, and we will reach out to you with the required forms before shipping.
About 1-5% of patients in the UPNEEQ® study experienced side effects like redness, dry eye, blurred vision, headache, and eye irritation.
Unfortunately, there is no insurance coverage for UPNEEQ®, but it is available locally at Aging Young Aesthetics.
Droopy eyelids can be congenital or caused by other underlying issues. UPNEEQ® will not work for you if you have either of these conditions. Visit your ophthalmologist to receive an eye exam to rule out adverse medical conditions.
UPNEEQ® may cause eye irritation, redness, dry eye, headaches, redness in the lining, plus eye pain. However, these symptoms do resolve quickly.
Using UPNEEQ® may lead to rebound redness that also occurs with Visine or over-the-counter eye drops. Rebound redness is persistent, but it will disappear quickly.
You can use UPNEEQ® with other eye drops but wait about 15 minutes before using any other eye drops or inserting contact lenses.
