Upneeq, the powerful ocular drop, breathes new life into eyes that once felt dull and weary. It stimulates the muscles around the iris and elevates the drooping eyelids. With just a single drop, Upneeq awakens a new world of clarity and radiance, helping you overcome the effects of sagging and drooping eyelids.
The Impact of Blepharoptosis
Blepharoptosis, or drooping eyelids, can significantly impact your life. Your vision can be obscured, making it difficult to perform simple tasks such as reading, driving, or watching TV. In addition, blepharoptosis can give you a tired and aged appearance, affecting your self-esteem and confidence. The condition can lead to a compensatory head tilt, resulting in chronic neck and shoulder pain. Upneeq can alleviate these symptoms and improve your quality of life.
What is Upneeq?
Upneeq is a prescription eye drop medication designed to treat blepharoptosis. The active ingredient in Upneeq, phenylephrine hydrochloride, stimulates the muscles around the eyes, causing the eyelids to lift and the eyes to appear more open. Upneeq is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment administered topically, making it a convenient option for those who want to improve the appearance and function of their eyes. Upneeq is FDA-approved for the treatment of blepharoptosis in adults.

Functional & Cosmetic Effects of Droopy Eyelids
Drooping eyelids can be caused by age-related changes, congenital factors, genetic predisposition, previous surgeries, and certain medical conditions. Staring at screens for prolonged periods can also lead to the weakening and atrophy of the levator eyelid muscle, resulting in acquired ptosis. Apart from the aesthetic implications, sagging eyelids also affect your vision and quality of life. Upneeq is a novel solution to address the functional and cosmetic aspects of blepharoptosis.
How Upneeq Works
Upneeq works by activating the alpha-1 adrenergic receptors in the eyelids’ muscles. The active ingredient in Upneeq, phenylephrine hydrochloride, is an alpha-adrenergic agonist that stimulates the muscles that lift the eyelids, known as the Muller’s muscle. By binding to these receptors, phenylephrine causes the muscles to contract, elevating the eyelids and opening up the eyes. Upneeq’s targeted mechanism of action makes it an effective and safe treatment for blepharoptosis.
Your Complete Upneeq Experience
Your Upneeq experience starts with a consultation to determine your candidacy. If you are a candidate, you will be prescribed Upneeq eye drops, which can be administered topically at home. Simply apply a single drop to each eye and wait for the effects to take place. Within minutes, your eyelids will begin to lift. The results last up to 8 hours, so you should time the application of eye drops accordingly.
