How UPNEEQ eye drops can help with blepharoptosis

Many men and women have a condition that is referred to as ptosis. This is the natural drooping of the eyelids due to excess skin or loose skin on the upper eyelid. It can make the eyes less visible, cause a person to look tired, or even reduce and interfere with their vision. At Seriously Skin Cosmetic and Laser Medicine, we understand that these drooping lids can be problematic for aging patients, and they are seeking solutions that don’t require surgery. If patients are only dealing with low lids and not excess or loose skin, this is when Dr. Jennifer Kish of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, may recommend to these patients the benefits of a new prescription eye drop called Upneeq.

What is Upneeq, and how does it work?

Upneeq is an effective blepharoptosis treatment for those with low-lying lids. It can lift drooping eyelids within hours and keep the results for up to eight hours afterward. This prescription uses an ingredient called oxymetazoline hydrochloride. This active ingredient causes the muscles in the upper eyelids, or the levator palpebrae, to contract and tighten. Even though it only lifts the eyelids approximately one millimeter on average, this can be a significant and noticeable change in the appearance of the eyes for many of our patients.

Who is a good candidate for Upneeq?

When you visit Seriously Skin Cosmetic and Laser Medicine with concerns about low-lying lids, Dr. Jennifer Kish will evaluate you and determine if you are a proper candidate for this prescription eyedrop. The best candidates are those with lower-lying upper eyelids. Those with significant loose skin and tissue may be better suited for surgical treatments such as blepharoplasty procedures with a plastic surgeon. Patients should be in good overall health and work with a trained professional to get approval and obtain a prescription for Upneeq.

Ready to appear more youthful and well-rested?

Upneeq eye drops for low-lying lids might be the best solution for you!
