Are you unhappy with the appearance of your low-lying eyelids? If so, you may have acquired ptosis, which occurs when the levator muscles of the eyelids become stretched due to aging. Upneeq is a fantastic, non-surgical solution to help open your eyes for a more alert appearance.

What is Upneeq?

Upneeq is the only FDA-approved prescription eyedrop used to treat acquired ptosis, or low-lying lids. This treatment is a great solution for lifting the upper eyelids to open the eyes.

In clinical trials, most patients experienced a lift in their eyelids in as little as two hours after treatment. Patients with acquired ptosis even had some form of improvement in their field of vision, with 87.8% having some form of improvement, and 40.8% having at least 50% improvement on day 14.

Who is a Candidate for Upneeq?

Upneeq may affect blood pressure, so those with heart disease, uncontrolled high or low blood pressure, or who feel faint at rest or when quickly standing up may not be ideal candidates. Upneeq may also increase the risk of eye pressure, so those with glaucoma should seek their doctor’s advice before using this procedure. The best way to learn if this treatment is right for you is to schedule a consultation at our office.

How to Use Upneeq

Upneeq eyedrops should be used once per day. If you are wearing contacts, remove them before using eye drops. Place one drop into each eye, and then throw away the single-use container. Wait at least 15 minutes before reinserting contact lenses.

Common side effects include eye redness, eye irritation, dry eye, blurred vision, instillation site pain, and headache.

Upneeq FAQ

QWO is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women.

Visible results may be achieved in 10 weeks. In clinical studies, women received 3 treatments of QWO, 21 days apart.

QWO has been studied in more patients than any other FDA-approved injectable cellulite treatment, with over 1,800 women participating.

In two pivotal phase 3 clinical studies of adult women with moderate to severe cellulite, 424 were treated with QWO and 419 received placebo.

QWO is injected by your aesthetic specialist directly into targeted dimples in the buttocks using a small needle.

You should not receive QWO if you are allergic to any collagenase or the ingredients in QWO, or have an active infection in the treatment area.

If your aesthetic specialist determines that QWO is right for you, she or he will decide on a treatment plan, including total number of treatments.

Each treatment visit may include up to 2 treatment areas. QWO injections will be given 21 days apart for 3 treatment visits.

At each office visit, injections take as little as 10 minutes.

QWO may cause serious side effects including allergic (hypersensitivity) reactions, including anaphylaxis, and injection site bruising.

The most common side effects of QWO include: injection site bruising, pain, areas of hardness, itching, redness, discoloration, swelling and warmth in the treatment area.

QWO may cause serious side effects: allergic (hypersensitivity) reactions, including anaphylaxis and injection site bruising.
In clinical trials, women required no post-treatment downtime. Most bruising lessened after each treatment and resolved in less than 21 days.

It’s not fully understood how QWO works in moderate to severe cellulite. The enzymes in QWO—called collagenases—are believed to target a structural cause under your skin.

It’s thought that QWO works in 3 ways: releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen.

It can be hard to talk about something as personal as your cellulite. Your aesthetic specialist is there to listen and help you find a solution. You can take comfort in knowing that you’re not alone in your struggles with cellulite. Approximately 90% of women have cellulite, no matter what they eat or how much they exercise.

Think about your goals beforehand and have them ready at your appointment. Describe how your cellulite makes you feel, and why you want to try a different treatment. Ask if they think QWO may be right for you.
