Low-hanging eyelids can be both cosmetically and functionally distressing. They may make you look older than you feel or interfere with clear and unobstructed vision. Dr. Courtney is passionate about staying up-to-date with the latest and most advanced aesthetic solutions on the market and is excited to offer his patients prescriptions for Upneeq, an innovative topical option for rejuvenating the upper face.
How Does Upneeq Work?
Upneeq was created to address acquired blepharoptosis, an ailment in which the upper lids grow weak and begin to sag. Upneeq is an alpha-adrenergic agonist made with oxymetazoline hydrochloride ophthalmic solution, 0.1%. Oxymetazoline. The main ingredient triggers the Mueller’s muscle in the eyelid to contract, resulting in a temporary but dramatic lift. The elevation is about 1-3 mm after applying the eye drops.
