Milia

Milia
Milia appear as tiny cysts on the face and body, formed by hair follicles being blocked by a keratin protein. Milia are often found around the eyes and on the body.

Treatments for Milia

Milia look like small white dome-like bumps which are typically found on the eyes, on the neck or on the body. These small white lumps are as small as the the top of a needle and they are formed from the build up of keratin.

Keratin is a protein which forms are hair and nails. Milia are harmless but they can cause some irritation if they are caught by clothing or rubbed by the folds of the skin.

Milia can be removed by our doctors using a PlexR device to vaporise the small bumps to provide relief and for cosmetic purposes.

SYMPTOMS of Milia

The symptoms of milia are mostly bothersome cosmetically. Milia appear as small white bumps on the skin, often around the eyes and body. You may experience irritation and redness if the milia are rubbed by clothing or folds of the skin.

CAUSES of Milia

  • dead skin clogging the pores causing build up
  • sun damage
  • long term use of steroid creams
  • blistering injuries or resurfacing treatments

Prevention of Milia

To avoid milia, reduce long-term sun exposure, avoid oil based skin products and thick creams which block pores and exfoliate your skin every few weeks to rid of dead skin cells. Exfoliating the dead skin will help to prevent your pores being blocked.

"I saw Dr Weber for a private consult following
a misdiagnosis of depression by my GP.
Dr Weber suggested it sounded like perimenopause
and moved me off antidepressants
and on to HRT. I'm back to my old self
and can't thank him enough!"
