UPNEEQ® for Drooping Eyelids

Drooping upper eyelids can make you look older and more tired than you feel. But do you really want to go through eyelid surgery to get a more rested look? We offer UPNEEQ®, an FDA-approved daily eyedrop that can provide a noticeable lift for droopy eyelids. This once-daily drop produces a 1 mm lift in the upper eyelid on average, and maintaining your results is as simple as continuing the daily application.

More about UPNEEQ

UPNEEQ eyedrops activate receptors in a targeted upper eyelid muscle, causing the muscle to contract and subtly lift the eyelid. You’ll still be able to blink and close your eyes as normal, just with a brighter and more open eye appearance. Some of our patients also report that their eyes feel more rested and relaxed at the end of the day compared to before they started using UPNEEQ drops.

UPNEEQ is available by prescription only. There’s no waiting to see results. A lifted upper eyelid can be seen just a few hours after your first application and can be maintained with daily re-application. Each prescription packet provides enough doses for 1 month.

UPNEEQ vs. Eyelid Surgery

UPNEEQ can be a good choice for people who have mild to moderate sagging of their upper eyelids. During your visit to our office we’ll review your medication and health history to make sure UPNEEQ is safe for you. People who are taking beta blockers, certain blood pressure medications, some antidepressants, and other prescription medications may not be good candidates. If you are looking for significant lifting of the upper eyelids and/or want to address lower eyelid concerns such as bagging and dark circles, considering eyelid surgery may be a better option.

Eyelid surgery can provide long-lasting improvement in both the upper and lower eyelids. People who have heavy upper eyelids or a considerable amount of loose skin on their upper lids may not see the results they would hope for through use of UPNEEQ alone. And use of UPNEEQ will not change the appearance of the lower eyelids. We are happy to review your concerns about your eye area and advise on your best treatment option. The bottom line is that UPNEEQ is an exciting, completely non-surgical way to see noticeably lifted lids!
