How does Upneeq work?

Upneeq, comprising oxymetazoline hydrochloride ophthalmic solution, features oxymetazoline hydrochloride, an alpha-adrenergic agonist. This compound prompts the contraction of the minute muscles in your upper eyelids (levator palpebrae), resulting in an average elevation of about 1 mm. Remarkably, its effects manifest within a mere 15 minutes and endure throughout the day.

Is Upneeq safe?

Upneeq has been FDA-approved as a safe and effective treatment for acquired eyelid ptosis in adults. Its primary ingredient, oxymetazoline hydrochloride, is also found in decongestant nasal sprays like Afrin®. In nasal sprays, oxymetazoline hydrochloride functions by stimulating the contraction of blood vessels, thereby facilitating the opening of nasal passages. Similarly, in Upneeq, oxymetazoline hydrochloride prompts the contraction of eyelid muscles, resulting in the elevation of eyelids.

How do I apply Upneeq eye drops?

Using Upneeq is a straightforward process, consisting of two simple steps:

  • Step 1: Open the foil wrapper and extract the single-use vial.
  • Step 2: Administer one drop of Upneeq into each eye as directed, once per day.

It’s essential to note that vials should not be reused once opened and should be disposed of after use.

How long does it take to see results?

With Upneeq eyedrops, you can expect a remarkable transformation in your eyelids within a remarkably short span of time, typically ranging from 5 to 15 minutes post-application.

Experience the uplifting effect as your eyelids undergo a visible elevation, restoring a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance to your eyes. Say goodbye to droopy lids and hello to a revitalized gaze in mere minutes with Upneeq eyedrops.
