Upneeq is a new prescription medication that has recently been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of acquired blepharoptosis, or drooping of the upper eyelid. The drug is administered as an eye drop and works by stimulating the muscle responsible for lifting the eyelid.

The approval of Upneeq is a significant milestone for people suffering from acquired blepharoptosis, a condition that can occur as a result of aging, trauma, or certain medical conditions. The drooping of the upper eyelid can not only affect a person's vision but can also impact their appearance and confidence.

One of the most significant benefits of Upneeq is that it offers a non-invasive alternative to surgical correction of acquired blepharoptosis. Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is an invasive procedure that involves removing excess skin and tissue from the eyelid to achieve a more lifted appearance. While effective, eyelid surgery comes with its risks and requires a significant recovery period.

Upneeq, on the other hand, offers a less invasive, less risky alternative that can be administered in a doctor's office without the need for anesthesia or surgery. The convenience and accessibility of the drug make it an attractive option for people who are unable or unwilling to undergo surgery.

It is important to note that Upneeq is not a permanent solution for acquired blepharoptosis. The effects of the drug are temporary and require regular administration to maintain the lifted appearance of the eyelid. However, for people who are looking for a non-invasive, low-risk option for managing their condition, Upneeq is an exciting development.

Upneeq is now available at our Joplin, Missouri office!
