Milia

Milia
Milia appear as tiny cysts on the face and body, formed by hair follicles being blocked by a keratin protein. They 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 top of a needle and are formed from the build-up of keratin.

Keratin is a protein that forms our 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.

They 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

Are mostly bothersome cosmetically. They 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

  • Sun damage
  • Long term use of steroid creams
  • Blistering injuries or resurfacing treatments
  • Dead skin clogging the pores causing build up

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.
