Careprost (Bimatoprost Ophthalmic) is a medicine used for growing eyelashes. The active ingredient, Bimatoprost Ophthalmic, does this by increasing the density, thickness, and length of the eyelashes.
Bimatoprost Ophthalmic also increases amount of fluid in the eye and is actually officially used to treat glaucoma. For a glaucoma treatment, the medication needs to be dropped onto the eye, as opposed to the eye lid only when used for eyelash treatment.
Put one drop of Careprost (Bimatoprost Ophthalmic) on a liquid eyeliner cartridge. Draw a line along the upper eyelid, and then remove the excess liquid. Repeat this procedure with the other eye. Do not apply Careprost (Bimatoprost Ophthalmic) to the bottom eyelid. Apply Careprost (Bimatoprost Ophthalmic) once a day. Results can normally be seen after two months of use, although it usually takes three to four months to achieve the desired effects. Once the desired length or density is achieved, apply Careprost once a week to maintain this length. If you completely stop using Careprost (Bimatoprost Ophthalmic) your eyelashes will revert to their previous state.
Warning & Precautions
Studies have shown that Careprost (Bimatoprost Ophthalmic) can gradually change eye color of treated eyes to brown by increasing melanosomes in melanocytes, and it is thought that these changed may be permanent. Long-term effects on melanocytes such as potential damage of pigment granules and deposit of pigment are still unknown. As color changes occur gradually, the changes are not noticeable and may even take years to notice. As a result of risk of Careprost changing the eye colour of treated eyes, it is important you use Careprost on both eyes so any changes occur in both.
