The Eye-Opening Benefits of Upneeq

Beautiful young woman with bright eyes.

With cliched expressions like, “The eyes are the window to the soul,” it’s no wonder that some people feel self-conscious about their eyelids when they look, well… half-shuttered. If you’ve been told “Gosh, you look tired!” or asked “Am I boring you?” we have some news that will perk you right up. Literally.

Introducing Upneeq

Uqpneeq is a FDA-approved prescription eye drop that is formulated specifically for ptosis, aka, low-lying lids. Sometimes referred to as “acquired blepharoptosis,” this condition affects approximately 13 million people in the United States alone! Studies show that millions of people over 40 years old could have acquired ptosis, but only 15% are diagnosed and even less have received treatment of any kind. 

This might be attributed to the fact that acquired ptosis often develops later in life, so some people might not even notice it’s happening. It can also be the result of other issues, such as cataract surgery, consistent contact lens use, and even an underlying and, in some cases, serious medical condition.

Whatever the cause, clearly, there was a need for a treatment like Upneeq and, fortunately, it has arrived. All it takes is one daily drop for visibly lifted upper eyelids. 

More than a Cosmetic Concern

The fact of the matter is that ptosis is more than an aesthetic consideration. Left untreated, ptosis can actually affect your vision. In some cases, this can negatively impact the most basic of daily tasks such as reading, driving, working or playing on the computer, and looking upwards without having to tilt your head back to do so. 

Despite the fact that Upneeq is a safe solution for low-lying eyelids, it still requires a prescription by a specialist. Good news! Abington Aesthetics’ own Dr. Zelinger is currently booking consultations.
