Get an Instant Eye-Lift with Upneeq Eye Drops

Whether caused by genetics or the natural aging process, eyelid ptosis (drooping eyelids) can have a significant impact on your appearance. In the past, treatments for ptosis were extremely limited and mainly involved surgery. But, with the introduction of Upneeq eye drops, patients have a non-invasive treatment option for this cosmetic concern. 

What is Upneeq? 

Upneeq is a daily, prescription eye drop that’s formulated for low-lying lids. In fact, Upneeq is the only FDA-approved prescription eye drop for acquired ptosis. 

Acquired ptosis develops in adulthood. Typically, it occurs when the levator muscle, which keeps the upper eyelid in a raised position, stretches out and weakens with age. This causes the eyelids to droop, giving the eyes a tired appearance.  Continue reading “Get an Instant Eye-Lift with Upneeq Eye Drops”

4 Things You Didn’t Know About That Could Bring Menopause Early

Mature woman experiencing hot flush from menopauseAre you experiencing symptoms of menopause, but are under the age of 40? If so, you might not be going crazy. It could be that you are experiencing premature menopause. Menopause can come on earlier than 40 for many reasons. Here are a few things that might surprise you.

Premature ovarian failure

This medical cause of early menopause involves failure of the ovaries to function. Premature ovarian failure and premature menopause can be related and often come hand in hand, but they are actually two separate issues. Menopause is when your menstrual cycles cease completely. On the other hand, ovarian failure is when the ovaries fail to release eggs. This can lead to infertility, but you might still have occasional periods, as with perimenopause.
