When most people think of anti-aging treatments, Botox is the first aesthetic treatment that comes to mind. It’s the gold standard when it comes to erasing and preventing wrinkles. However, maintaining a youthful appearance doesn’t end with neurotoxins or fillers.

The eyes are an often overlooked facial feature that greatly impacts your overall appearance. Eyes that are tired or droopy can add years to our appearance, while bright, open eyes can shave years off our look. In 2022, eyelid surgeries, also known as blepharoplasties, increased by 83% from the previous year. This increase in blepharoplasties is most likely attributed to the use of masks throughout the pandemic, when eyes were the most highlighted facial feature.

Non-Surgical Alternative

While an eyelid lift is an effective way to restore youthfulness to the eyes , it is not the only solution. At Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery, we are thrilled to announce the arrival of Upneeq®, the only FDA-approved treatment for low-lying eyelids or acquired blepharoptosis. Upneeq is a prescription eye drop (oxymetazoline hydrochloride ophthalmic solution) with immediate results. When used once daily, Upneeq improves vision and lifts sagging upper eyelids that create a tired or aged appearance. This clinically-proven treatment works by stimulating the levator muscle, which causes it to contract and open the upper eyelid.

If you have droopy upper eyelids, are experiencing a reduced field of vision, or have difficulty driving, reading, or using a computer, you may be a candidate for Upneeq. With zero downtime or discomfort, Upneeq is a simple and effective way to bring life back to your eyes, restore your confidence, and rejuvenate your appearance. See the difference with this eye-opening treatment!
