Here at the Wart Removal Clinic, we are specialists at removing all types of warts and unsightly skin blemishes. Below is a guide to milia and the treatments we provide.
What are Milia?
Milia are small, white (or sometimes pale yellow) spots that usually appear around the eyes, on the cheeks and on the eyelids.
What causes Milia?
Milia occur when dead skin becomes trapped in small pockets at the surface of the skin or mouth. They are common in newborn infants and appear as pearly white bumps, most commonly across the upper cheeks, nose, and chin. Milia generally disappear after the first several weeks of life. Adults may also develop milia. The bumps and cysts also occur on parts of the body that are inflammed or injured. Irritation of the skin by rough sheets or clothing may cause mild reddening around the bump, but the central portion remains white.
Are they Dangerous?
Apart from making people worry about their appearance, milia aren't harmful to you.
What Treatment is needed to Remove Milia?
To remove milia from your skin, we use the latest Advanced Cosmetic Procedures. Before the treatment can take place, a consultation and patch test is needed. The treatment process requires the tip of a small probe to be used with a tiny energy current to remove the blemished area. The treatment itself is a little uncomfortable but easily tolerated. There are minimal after effects, with a little tightness and scabbing to be expected. Each treatment lasts 15 minutes.
What Results are expected?
Milia can be successfully removed, leaving a clearer, healthier looking skin. This treatment is suitable for men and woman on the face and on other body areas.
