What are the directions for using Lumigan for eye lash growth. I don't have it in English Thank you

For the treatment of Hypotrichosis - eyelashes growth Lumigan is to be applied directly on the base of your upper eyelashes using the applicator. Care should be observed in the application of the medicine to avoid growth of hair outside the treatment area. Wash hands properly before and after each application. Always dispose the applicator after every use.
