UPNEEQ: Refreshed Eyes Without the Surgery

Sagging or excessively weighted eyelids can lead to self-consciousness, creating an appearance of fatigue or aging. Surgical interventions, though sought after, can be discouraging due to their invasive nature. Introducing Upneeq eye drops, a non-surgical, non-invasive solution addressing drooping eyelids effectively and consistently. At Direct Aesthetics, we embrace this innovative approach, providing a safer alternative for those seeking a rejuvenated appearance. Explore the transformative potential of Upneeq below.


What is Upneeq used for?

Upneeq (oxymetazoline) is an FDA-approved prescription eye drop designed to temporarily alleviate droopy eyelids, known as ptosis, resulting from a weakened muscle in the upper eyelid. Beyond cosmetic concerns that may make you appear tired or sad, low-lying eyelids can also pose functional issues by limiting your vision.

What are the Benefits of Upneeq?

Non-Surgical Solution

Upneeq provides a non-surgical and non-invasive alternative to address droopy eyelids.


It is an FDA-approved prescription eye drop, ensuring its safety and efficacy.

Temporary Improvement

Upneeq offers temporary improvement in cases of ptosis, providing a refreshed appearance without the need for surgery.

Functional and Cosmetic Enhancement

Beyond cosmetic concerns, Upneeq can also address functional issues associated with low-lying eyelids, such as restricted vision.

Consistent Results

Upneeq is known for its consistent and effective results in temporarily improving the position of the upper eyelids.


The treatment involves the use of eye drops, offering a convenient and straightforward application method.

Following the application of Upneeq, anticipate its effects to endure for approximately six to eight hours. For optimal results, we suggest applying it during the period of the day when you desire a more alert and bright-eyed appearance.

How often can you use Upneeq?

Upneeq is typically applied once daily to maintain its effectiveness in addressing droopy eyelids.

Upneeq long-term use

Upneeq, featuring the identical active ingredient (oxymetazoline) found in the nasal spray Afrin, requires daily reapplication to sustain its effect. However, unlike Afrin, deemed unsafe for prolonged use, Upneeq can be used continuously.
