Sagging upper eyelids, otherwise known as eyelid ptosis, can not only disrupt your look but also obstruct your vision.

At Behr Laser & Skin Care Center, we provide Upneeq® Eye-opening Lift treatments to help restore your beauty and your vision without surgery. This simple eyedrop acts quickly and requires no downtime after use. Learn more by scheduling your appointment at our Fresno, California office today.REQUEST APPOINTMENT
What Causes Eyelid Ptosis?
Eyelid ptosis can be present at birth or develop over time. In adults, this issue can happen due to aging, as a result of an eye injury, or as a side effect of eye surgery. One of the reasons why this issue is so troubling for some is that it causes asymmetry as well as obstructing vision.
What Are the Signs?
The signs of eyelid ptosis are visually apparent. If the upper eyelid of one or both of your eyes are drooping, then you have eyelid ptosis. In most cases, this issue isn’t a sign of a medical condition. However, it can be frustrating to deal with and cause visual discomfort.
Upneeq® for Eyelid Ptosis
Upneeq® is the only FDA-approved prescription eyedrop for acquired ptosis. This eyedrop is made of an oxymetazoline hydrochloride ophthalmic solution that lifts your upper eyelids to open your eyes. It works by making certain eyelid muscles shorter and tighter. This results in a lift that exposes more of your eyes, creating a youthful appearance.
Upneeq® is a prescription medication, and you can use it yourself at home. Best of all, this treatment acts quickly. In clinical trials, patients experienced a lift in their eyelids in as little as two hours after using Upneeq®. 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.REQUEST APPOINTMENT
