Milia / Milk Spots
Milia are very small, white, hard keratin-filled cysts which lie superficially under the surface of the skin, commonly around the eye area. They are often mistaken for whiteheads, but in fact, milia are tiny cysts that are located immediately below the epidermis, the very outer layer of skin, making their distinctive colouring so visible. The white comes from an excess build-up of keratin, which is a natural part of the skin.
It is not known why milia develop in adults: unlike some skin conditions they don’t seem to be related to diet, lifestyle or health issues.
While they aren’t a medical risk, many people find milia unsightly and would prefer to remove them.
They can be safely removed using advanced electrolysis.
The tip of the finest, smallest needle possible (about the size of an eyelash) is introduced into. the Milia and a tiny energy current is discharged, destroying the Milia which then disappears.
The time taken to treat this condition will depend on the size, number and of Milia to be treated. Your practitioner will advise during the consultation if the problem can be treated in one session or if a course of treatment is likely to be required.
Clients should expect some redness following treatment and some small scabs can form, which will drop off a few days following treatment.
