About Careprost With Applicator Brush
Careprost is an approved medication used for the treatment of a condition called hypotrichosis or abnormally short eyelashes. Careprost when applied to the upper lash line increases the number of eyelashes, their length, thickness, and also darkens the lashes. The active ingredient in Careprost is bimatoprost ophthalmic solution

Bimatoprost ophthalmic solution can also be used for the treatment of glaucoma. When Careprost is also used for treating glaucoma, the solution is dropped into the eye to lower eye pressure.
