Careprost – The miraculous eye drop solution

Careprost – The miraculous eye drop solution

Careprost eye drops are a licensed drug for reducing increased intraocular pressure in patients with intraocular hypertension or glaucoma. The active ingredient of Careprost is bimatoprost 0.03% 3 ml ophthalmic solution, which belongs to a group of medicines called prostaglandin analog. During clinical application, it was found that bimatoprost significantly increases the growth of eyelashes when applied to the upper eyelid. Bimatoprost is currently marketed under the name Careprost by Sun Pharmaceuticals which is used to increase the growth of lashes by making them longer, darker, and denser.

 How it works: 

 It helps the eyelashes to grow by increasing the number of hairs in the initial growth phase. Also, it increases the amount of time the hair remains in the growth phase, which allows them to develop more.

 How to use the solution to increase the length of the lash:

 * Apply a drop to a disposable eyeliner applicator brush and draw along the lash line of the upper eyelid. Carefully wipe off any excess that may have dripped past the upper eyelid. It should not be applied to the lower lash line. Repeat for the other eye.

* Apply once a day, until the desired length is reached. The results are usually visible in about eight weeks, and the desired length is usually achieved in 14 to 16 weeks.

 If you miss a dose of Careprost eye drops, use it as soon as you remember, unless it’s time to use the next dose, skip the dose.

 You should store your Eye drops in a cool place where the temperature is below 25° C and always replace the top of the bottle to avoid contamination. Throw away the empty bottle.

To reach the final results, do I need to continue using Careprost daily? 

Using Careprost, your lashes will continue to grow without falling out, as they normally would. Most reach the end result in 12 to 16 weeks of use. The maintenance treatment can be started as soon as you wish, or better when you are satisfied with the appearance of your lashes. It’s your choice. To maintain them, apply Careprost 3 times a week.

Does Careprost replace the mask (mascara)? 

Using Careprost regularly, your lashes will become longer, thicker, more voluminous, and darker – for the same reason that we use a mask. However, if you want an even more striking and expressive look, you can use the mask too. A tip, especially for oriental women, is the use of the eyelash curler (eyelash curler). But first, use the curler and then apply the mask to prevent the lashes from sticking to the curler. Therefore, always clean your eyelash curler before use.

How big is the Careprost bottle? And how long does it last?  

Each bottle of Careprost contains 3ml of solution. If used correctly it can last up to 2 months or more.

Is it necessary to refrigerate Careprost? 

No, in fact, it is always good to keep Careprost at room temperature and place it in an easy place for you to remember to use it every day.

What, if any, is the side effect of using Careprost? 

The most common side effect using Careprost is the sensation of itching or red eyes, reported in only 4% of consumers. This can occur immediately after application, but it should last for a short period of time. Itchy, red eyes are not allergic reactions and do not mean that your eyes are being damaged. However, if the redness persists you should stop using the product and see an ophthalmologist for proper guidance. Careprost can cause other very unusual side effects, which typically occur on the skin close to where Careprost is applied or in the eyes. Such as irritation and dryness of the eyes, reddish lashes, and hyperpigmentation of the skin (darkening). If a new eye condition (such as trauma or infection) develops, you notice a sudden decrease in visual acuity, or you develop any eye reactions, especially conjunctivitis and eyelid reactions, stop using the product immediately, and see your ophthalmologist.

Are there any other warnings or considerations I need to know about?

Careprost is to be used on the skin, on the margins of the upper eyelid, and at the base of the eyelashes. DO NOT APPLY to the lower eyelid. If you are using other products in the same high intraocular pressure (IOP) class, or if you have a history of abnormal intraocular pressure, you should only use Careprost under the close supervision of your eye doctor. The use of Careprost can cause the skin of the eyelids to darken, which can be reversible. The use of Careprost can also cause an increase in brown pigmentation of the colored part of the eye, which is likely to be permanent. It is possible for hair to grow on other areas of your skin that Careprost often touches. Any excess solution outside the margin of the upper eyelid should be wiped off with a tissue or other absorbent material to reduce the chance of this happening. It is also possible to have a difference in eyelash length, thickness, volume, pigmentation, number of eyelash hair, and/or direction of eyelash growth between the two sides of the eyes. These differences, if they occur, usually disappear if you stop using Careprost.

What does IOP mean?  

IOP means high intraocular pressure. This is a condition where the pressure inside the eye is higher than normal. Careprost can lower intraocular pressure. So, talk to your doctor before using Careprost, if you are using medications to lower IOP.

If I am pregnant or breastfeeding, can I use Careprost?

 Unfortunately not. It is NOT recommended to use in pregnant and lactating women.

What if I forget to apply the Careprost? 

If you forget one or more applications, don’t despair. Just apply normally the next night and continue the treatment. It is important to note that you should NOT apply more than once in the same night to try to replace forgotten applications.

What will happen if I stop using Careprost?  

To continue receiving maximum benefits from Careprost, daily application is required. But if you are in the maintenance period, applying 3 times a week is enough. And if you decide to stop using, your eyelashes will slowly return to normal appearance within weeks to months.

I use contact lenses, can I use Careprost?  

Yes, without any problem. Just remove the lenses before applying Careprost and wait 20 minutes for the solution to dry well, then put your lenses back on.

What happens if Careprost accidentally gets in my eyes?  

Do not worry. It is an ophthalmic solution. It will not harm your eyesight and there is no need to rinse, just wipe off the excess with a tissue. But avoid direct contact with the eyes.

What are the ingredients?

Active ingredient: Bimatoprost 

Inactive ingredients: Benzalkonium chloride; Sodium Chloride; Sodium Phosphate, Dibasic; Citric acid; and purified water. Sodium hydroxide and hydrochloric acid can be added to adjust the pH.

What is skin hyperpigmentation? 

Hyperpigmentation is a common condition, usually harmless in which areas of the skin are darker than the current skin color. This occurs when there is an increase in melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color. Hyperpigmentation of the skin is a possible side effect, but it can be reversible after discontinuing the use of the product. Use Careprost only as directed. Do not use Careprost on the lower lashes as you may run the risk of hyperpigmentation in that area.
