Restore Your Vibrant Eyes With Upneeq Treatment in Austin

Ptosis is a common condition in which the upper eyelids start to droop, creating a tired appearance and detracting from your youthful, vibrant eyes. Since the eyes tend to be the first thing we notice when interacting with one another, ptosis can have a major impact on the way you’re perceived by the people you meet. While many individuals turn to cosmetic surgery to correct drooping eyelids, such a drastic step isn’t always necessary. At Austin Cosmetic Medspa, we offer an innovative, non-invasive ptosis treatment called Upneeq.

What Is Upneeq?

Upneeq is a revolutionary prescription eye drop used to treat acquired eyelid ptosis, a condition in which the upper eyelids become noticeably droopy. This condition is typically caused by the levator muscles in the upper eyelids weakening, usually as a result of aging or genetics. In patients suffering from ptosis, Upneeq can help open the eyes to restore their youthful, energetic appearance.

How Does Upneeq Work?

Upneeq is administered as an eye drop. The solution contains 0.1% oxymetazoline hydrochloride ophthalmic solution as its active ingredient. Just one drop into each eye delivers the perfect dose of oxymetazoline to cause the muscles in the upper eyelid to tighten up. The tighter muscle then causes retraction of the eyelid skin, which results in a subtle lift and opening of the eyes.

Benefits of Upneeq

Upneeq is an innovative ptosis treatment that can provide all of the following benefits:

  • Lifted, tighter upper eyelids
  • More open and energetic eyes
  • A more youthful and vibrant facial appearance
  • Immediate results
  • No recovery time
  • Natural-looking results
  • Elimination of “tired eyes” appearance
  • Improved range of vision
  • Improved self-confidence

What to Expect From Upneeq Treatment

The Upneeq treatment process is quite simple. First, you’ll have a consultation with one of our aesthetic professionals to ensure that you’re a good candidate for the treatment. You’ll then be given an Upneeq prescription, which will take the form of individual, single-use vials of the medication. To use Upneeq, all you’ll need to do is apply one drop per eye, once per day to keep your ptosis symptoms at bay.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Upneeq?

Generally, Upneeq is an effective treatment option for adults experiencing mild to moderate symptoms of upper eyelid ptosis. However, it’s important to note that Upneeq is not FDA-approved for the treatment of congenital ptosis, and it may not be effective for severe cases of ptosis. In more severe cases, the levator muscles may need to be surgically tightened to achieve optimal results.

During your initial consultation, your provider will closely examine your eyelids and evaluate your situation to determine if Upneeq is right for you.
