At United Medical and Aesthetics in Wilmington, North Carolina, Aleta Sloan and her professional staff are pleased to provide cosmetic services for both men and women who visit the office. Individuals with ptosis, or a sagging eyelid, may want to fix droopy eyelids to achieve a more youthful look. We are excited to offer a way to tighten eyelids without surgery using a prescription medication known as Upneeq.
Upneeq is a special FDA-approved eyedrop that is available by prescription, formulated with oxymetazoline hydrochloride. It is a revolutionary way to immediately restore a well-rested appearance for those who have droopy or sagging upper eyelids. This condition, also known as ptosis, can cause patients to look tired or aged. Instead of undergoing invasive surgeries, patients can ask Aleta Sloan and her team at United Medical and Aesthetics about a prescription for Upneeq instead!
The results of Upneeq are often achieved in as little as two hours, lifting the eyelids and giving patients a youthful, more well-rested appearance to the eyes when ptosis is a concern. Ptosis may be a cosmetic or even a medical concern, especially if it impedes one’s field of vision. Using Upneeq drops daily can improve the upper field of vision to see better while ensuring a positive esthetic change.
Sagging eyelids may be caused by increased levels of stress, poor sleep, health complications, or even just as a natural part of the aging process. Using Upneeq to correct these issues is often why our patients ask about it. We want to ensure that candidates for treatment have realistic expectations regarding what can be achieved with this treatment versus plastic surgery solutions. An appointment with our team is required to obtain a prescription for these eye drops. During this visit, Aleta Sloan and her professional staff will discuss your medical history and determine if you have any medical conditions that may impact Upneeq use. Patients who may not be proper candidates for treatment are individuals with:
Because Upneeq is considered a cosmetic treatment, health insurance plans do not provide coverage. However, our team can talk to you about the cost of Upneeq prescriptions and whether or not you may be eligible for any discounts at your local pharmacy. We want to make sure this option is affordable for those who desire a more youthful appearance and an improved field of vision.
