Prescription Eyedrops in Aurora

UPNEEQ® is the first and only prescription eye drop of its kind. Given daily, Upneeq eyedrops improve acquired ptosis or droopy eyelids caused by aging. Read on to learn more about Upneeq and discover if this innovative prescription is right for you.

What is Upneeq?

Upneeq is a once-daily prescription eyedrop. It temporarily lifts the muscles of the upper eyelid, allowing the eyes to open wider. This results in a more youthful appearance and an overall rejuvenated look. Upneeq is a quick and effective medication with visible improvements within 15 minutes. Most patients see natural-looking results for up to 8 hours after their application to the eyes. This prescription is the perfect non-surgical alternative to Blepharoplasty and treats acquired ptosis specifically.

How Does Upneeq Work?*

One Upneeq eye drop is inserted into each eye once per day. Upneeq’s main or active ingredient consists of a 0.1% oxymetazoline hydrochloride ophthalmic solution. Oxymetazoline is also found in other medications like nasal decongestant sprays. With Upneeq, oxymetazoline causes muscles within the upper eyelid to contract or tighten up. This action causes a subtle lifting effect and allows the eyes to open wider.

Upneeq’s lifting effect is temporary, with visible improvements in 15 minutes lasting up to 8 hours. As with all medications, individual results may vary.*

What is Upneeq’s Price?

Upneeq is a prescription medication. On average, it costs $220 for a 45-day supply. That is a little over $4 per day. To learn more about Upneeq price, contact Always Beautiful Medical Aesthetics and Cosmetics for an in-depth consultation to speak specifically about the cost of this prescription. From location to longevity of the prescription, there are many factors that go into the price of Upneeq.

Is Upneeq Worth It?

Clinical evidence shows that people believe Upneeq is worth it. Acquired ptosis is a viable cosmetic concern, but it may also lead to vision impairment. Low-lying or droopy eyelids may cause difficulty driving, reading, and more. Studies done with patients on the first day of Upneeq use show an impressive 87.8% of patients experience a form of improvement. One study also proves that some patients get a noticeable lift to their eyelids within only 5 minutes of use.
