UPNEEQ | PRESCRIPTION EYEDROP THAT LIFTS DROOPY EYELIDS

UPNEEQ® is the first and only FDA-approved eye drop that improves acquired ptosis (droopy eyelids caused by aging.)

  • Visible improvement within 15 minutes

Upneeq Origins | Why Choose Upneeq

Upneeq, formerly known as  Upneeq® (oxymetazoline hydrochloride ophthalmic solution), 0.1% is a new product from RVL Pharmaceuticals. It is a prescription eye drop treatment for acquired ptosis (droopy eyelids that have occurred due to age). RVL Pharmaceuticals is a specialty pharmaceutical company that launched Upneeq in 2020 after receiving FDA-approval. RVL created Upneeq to improve the lives of patients in an innovative way.

Millions of men and women over the age of 40 may have acquired ptosis without being aware of it. Of those millions, 15% have been diagnosed and even fewer receive treatment. Upneeq was made to cater to a largely unmet need for those millions of people experiencing droopy eyelids. Furthermore, Upneeq prescription eye drops offer a non-surgical alternative for those wanting to lift their eyelids while avoiding the pressures that come with invasive surgery.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Upneeq is a prescription eyedrop. One eye drop is inserted into each eye once a day.

Upneeq’s active ingredient consists of a 0.1% oxymetazoline hydrochloride ophthalmic solution. Oxymetazoline is found in other medications, like nasal decongestant spray. With Upneeq, oxymetazoline causes the upper eyelid muscle to contract (tighten up). This causes a subtle lifting effect and opens the eyes wider.

Upneeq’s lifting effect is temporary. Visible improvement is typically seen within 15 minutes of application. Results can last up to 8 hours.

UPNEEQ PRICE | HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Upneeq is a prescription medication that costs, on average, $220 for a 45-day supply. That’s a little over $4 per day. Unfortunately, insurance companies do not cover the eye-lifting eyedrop.

WHAT IS ACQUIRED PTOSIS?

Ptosis is the medical term for low-lying or droopy eyelids. Ptosis may be genetic (congenital ptosis), caused by aging (acquired ptosis), or caused by other issues such as:

  • surgery (cataract surgery or LASIK)
  • eye injuries
  • wearing contact lenses
  • migrating Botox
  • Other medical conditions

Upneeq is designed to treat acquired ptosis, the most common cause of droopy eyelids.

Millions of adults over the age of 40 suffer from some degree of acquired ptosis. The skin loses structural proteins (elastin and collagen) that provide elasticity as the skin gets older. Elasticity is the ability of the skin to bounce back into place. Loss of elasticity and the constant pull of gravity causes the upper eyelid to droop down over the eye. Acquired ptosis is primarily a cosmetic concern. However, drooping eyelids can also impair vision.

UPNEEQ vs. EYELID SURGERY (BLEPHAROPLASTY)

Blepharoplasty, the popular eyelid surgery, was performed over 325,000 times in 2020. This makes blepharoplasty the second most popular cosmetic surgery in the nation (trailing close behind the first-place winner: rhinoplasty, aka, a nose job.)

After the eyelid surgery, swelling and bruising may take up to six weeks to subside.

EYELID SURGERY SCARRING: During eyelid surgery, the surgeon cuts along the natural crease of the upper eyelid and removes excess skin, muscle, or fat. These incisions are visible for about a year after the surgery when the scars are red or pink. After a year, the scarring fades to a less noticeable skin color and can only be seen when the eyelids are shut.

While blepharoplasty is an invasive cosmetic surgery, improvement to droopy eyelids is dramatic, and results typically last for six to seven years.

Upneeq is a non-surgical alternative to blepharoplasty. The prescription eye drop is ideal for moderate, temporary improvement.

SCIENTIFIC REVIEWS AND CLINICAL EVIDENCE

Clinical studies prove Upneeq to be safe and effective at improving the appearance of the upper eyelid and scope of vision.

Nearly 90% of patients demonstrated a visible improvement. 74% of these patients demonstrated great results, with 50% or more improvement to their upper eyelids.

On average, patients saw a 1mm lift in their upper eyelid.

Most patients saw a noticeable lift in their upper eyelids within 15 minutes of applying the drops. Some patients saw improvement in as little as 5 minutes.

Is Upneeq Worth It?

If you experience uncomfortable drooping eyelids, Upneeq may be worth it for you. Although insurance does not cover the cost of this prescription eye drop, Upneeq is affordable compared to surgical alternatives.

Clinical evidence shows that many people are deeming Upneeq as worth it. Acquired ptosis is not only a cosmetic concern for men and women, it may also lead to vision impairment. Low-lying or droopy eyelids may cause difficulty reading, driving, computer use, and more. Studies done with patients on the first day of treatment show an impressive 87.8% of patients experiencing some form of improvement. One study showed a few patients get noticeable lift in their eyelids in only 5 minutes.
