Low-lying lids can now be treated without surgical intervention. This is all thanks to Upneeq®, a revolutionary eyedrop that reduces lid drooping for a younger look. This treatment is easy to administer and is readily available as a prescription here at Comprehensive Family Medicine. Get in touch with our West Columbia office to experience it firsthand.
Upneeq® is an eye-opening lift formula made of an oxymetazoline hydrochloride ophthalmic solution. This formula is used to treat acquired blepharoptosis. When administered in the form of drops, this solution makes certain eyelid muscles get shorter and tighter. This results in a lift that exposes more of the eye, creating a youthful appearance.
This treatment is used to reduce lid drooping. In some cases, low-lying lids may be related to conditions such as stroke, brain aneurysm, Horner syndrome, or other illnesses. If you struggle with any of these issues, discussing your condition during your initial visit to our office is essential to finding out if Upneeq® is right for you.
Upneeq® is a prescription medication, and you can administer it yourself at home. We will evaluate your eyes during your consultation and ask you a series of questions related to your medical history. If Upneeq® is right for you, you can begin treatment after you acquire the medication.
Upneeq® acts quickly. In clinical trials, patients experienced a lift in their eyelids in as little as two hours. Some studies have even shown that results can be seen in as little as five minutes after the first dose. Along with having an aesthetic effect, this medication can also improve your upper field of vision.
Improving the look and function of your eyes can be a simple eyedrop away. Get in touch to discover how Upneeq® can help address your blepharoptosis. Get in touch with us by filling out the form below or calling (803) 814-2288. We are available 24/7 and accommodate same-day appointments.
