What is Upneeq? 

Upneeq (oxymetazoline) is an eye drop designed to improve the appearance of drooping eyelids or hooded eyelids. 
Droopy eyelids, aka ptosis is caused by a weak muscle in the upper eyelid. You can see results within 10 minutes, which will last about 8 hours.
 

How does Upneeq work? 

Upneeq contracts the upper eyelid (Muller’s) muscles by 1-2mm; this creates a dramatically noticeable and more open-looking eye. Upneeq allows for a more natural-looking eyelid lifting than a ‘brow lift’ with botox. Upneeq is an ideal minimally invasive option for those not looking for surgery.   

Does insurance cover Upneeq? 

Upneeq is not covered by insurance.  

Is Upneeq prescription only?

 Yes, you will need to be evaluated by a trained medical provider to determine if you are a candidate for Upneeq. As we prescribe Self Care LA, we can send you home with the product, saving you a trip to the pharmacy.   

What is Upneeq used for? 

Upneeq is used to correct acquired ptosis (drooping of the eyelid), which results from the general ageing process. By contracting the upper eyelid (Muller’s) muscle, the eye can appear more open and refreshed. For those with more pronounced ptosis, such correction can improve vision significantly.

Where can I buy Upneeq? 

Upneeq is available by prescription only. This means you need to be evaluated by a trained medical provider who will determine if you are a candidate for Upneeq.At Self Care LA, we can provide you with the Upneeq product after you are properly evaluated.

Can you use Upneeq with contacts?

Yes, Upneeq is safe to use with contact lenses. Several of our clients even put a drop of Upneeq into their contact case at night with the contact solution, so when they put in their contacts the next day the medication is already there.

How long does it take for Upneeq to work? 

You will see the results within 10 minutes of application. The medication lasts about 8 hours.
