The Leading Pharmaceutical Company Allergen created the prescription medicine Lumigan for treatment of Glaucoma. After several years of use by consumers Allergan confirmed that most users experienced fuller, longer and darker eyelashes as a side effect of Bimatoprost, the active ingredient in Lumigan.
Allergan made a smart move and produced a new medicine with exact same formula but for treatment of hypotrichosis of the eyelashes (aka growing eyelashes). It is popularly known as Lattise. Obviously as all cosmetic companies do, this was priced even higher than Lumigan.
Leading pharmaceutical company SunPharma created generic version of Lumigan called Careprost as a less expensive alternative for consumers around the world. Exact same contents but almost one-fifth price.
There is no doubt that Careprost makes your eyelashes denser and longer in just 4-6 weeks, maximum length is attained in 16 weeks. After that it has to be used 2-3 times a week for maintenance.
