What is Upneeq and how does it work?

Upneeq (oxymetazoline hydrochloride ophthalmic solution) is a 0.1% prescription eyedrop used to stimulate Muller’s muscle, a muscle that maintains elevation of the upper eyelid. Using Upneeq once per day, one drop per eye, has been shown to deliver a rapid, visible lift to the upper eyelid. While it won’t produce the more dramatic results of a surgical eyelid lift, you will still see an average of about 1 millimeter of lift in your upper eyelid after their first use.
