How to use Careprost
Careprost (Bimatoprost Ophthalmic) is used to grow eyelashes. The active ingredient, Bimatoprost Ophthalmic, achieves this by increasing the density, thickness, and length of the eyelashes.
Bimatoprost Ophthalmic also increases the amount of fluid in the eye and is officially used to treat glaucoma. For glaucoma treatment, the medication needs to be dropped into the eye, as opposed to the eyelid 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 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 would normally be seen after two months of use, although it usually takes three to four months to achieve the desired result.
Once the desired length or density is achieved, apply Careprost once a week to maintain achieved length. If you stop using Careprost completely (Bimatoprost Ophthalmic) your eyelashes will revert to their previous state.

Studies have shown that Careprost (Bimatoprost Ophthalmic) can gradually change the color of treated eyes to brown by increasing melanosomes in melanocytes, and it is thought that these change may be permanent.
