Treatments

There are different kinds of treatment for hyperpigmentation and we will shortly descripe the methods here:

Face Acids
Face acids or skin acids, work by exfoliating, or shedding, the top layer of your skin. When you exfoliate your skin, new skin cells emerge to take place of the old ones.

Kanopus Bright product B (Repair) contains several different acids, f.i. tannic acid, lactic acid, ascorbic acid, mandelic acid and nonapeptide-1. Besides exfoliation and reducing hyperpigmentation the treatment will rejuvenate your skin and leave it with a smooth skin structure and fresh glow.

Chemical peel
A chemical peel uses acids at stronger concentration to treat the desired area of skin. They reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation by removing the top layer of your skin, the layer that is called epidermis. Deeper versions may also penetrate the middle layer of your skin, called dermis, to produce more dramatic results.

Kanopus Bright product B (Repair) can be graded as a mild chemical peeling. It inhances cell proliferation and skin layer regeneration.

Retinoids
Retonoids are a derivative of vitamin A. Retinoids have many advanteges and are used to treat several skin conditions, such as fine lines and hyperpigmentation. Retinoids can accelerate the rate of the skin cell division and new cell growth. In short, they change how your skin cells funktion.

Kanopus Bright product B (Repair) and product D (Cure) contain Retinol, one type of retinoids that works deep in the dermis layer of the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production.

Lightening cremes
Lightening creams usually work best for flat spots, such as melasma and age spots. They are effective for patches of discoloration on most skin types. They are applied once or twice a day to help brighten/lighten the skin over time. The common ingredients in lightening products are licorice extract and vitamin B-3 (niacinamide)

Kanopus Bright product D (cure) and product E (care) both brighten and smoothens the skin tone. Many ingredients work together, read more D and E here.

The next two methods need special tools and education, and is done at a dermatologist or beauty salon:

Itense pulse light therapy (IPL)
IPL therapy is a type of non-ablative (fractional) laser treatment that stimulates collagen growth within the dermis layer.

Microdermabrasion/Dermabrasion
The procedure will rapidly but gently remove the epidermis with a drill-like handheld tool with a wire brush. Dermabrasion is the same kind of procedure, except that it goes deeper and involves removal of part of the dermis.
