Do you struggle with low, drooping eyelids? Keep reading! We are excited to introduce Upneeq, a prescription eyelid lifting treatment, to Coco Med Spa here in St. Pete. This facial treatment is sure to become a staple for special events, photos, and any occasion that requires a little extra lift.
What is Upneeq
Upneeq is an FDA-approved, prescription eye drop designed to treat low-lying lids by lifting your upper eyelids. This aids in better vision, a more lifted and awake appearance, and improved comfort. This product can be self-administered at home, before an event, or just about anytime you desire a more open, lifted appearance for your eyes.
How does Upneeq work?
Upneeq uses an active ingredient that temporarily stimulates the Muller’s muscle. This muscle is an involuntary eyelid muscle that contracts when stimulated by Upneeq, providing a short-term lift and opening of the eyes. Individuals that were studied during testing reported an improvement of up to 50% within a few minutes to two hours from application. Results are reported to last for about 6 hours.
Who is a good candidate for Upneeq?
Any adult with low-lying lids, also known as ptosis, is a great candidate for Upneeq. This is a prescription treatment so it must be prescribed by a medical professional. Our Nurse Practitioner, Amy, and Physicians Assistant, Jessica are both able to prescribe this treatment to the appropriate candidates!
Are you ready to give your lids a boost? Contact us today to set up a consultation to find out if Upneeq is right for you. This prescription treatment is available to pick up in the spa. We can’t wait to see you!
