Addresses White spots

Is this right for me?

Milia are tiny white spots that appear usually on the face, they contain a collection of sebum; the hard white cells that have formed.

Milia can become quite painful and get infected fairly easily and if not treated correctly can cause scarring. They have also been connected to acne vulgarius skin.

What does this involve?

A needle is used to gently make a tiny incision above the milia. A numbing cream can be used but is usually not necessary. The contents are extracted by gentle pressure. Occasionally, a needle connected to electrical impulses is used and this can help to cauterise the skin covering the milia.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the recovery like?

The recovery for milia is quite important as tiny scabs form and these must not be picked in order to gain the best results. Aloe Vera gels are applied to the area to sooth and heal the skin which also speeds up the recovery time.
