Most commonly, Milia may resolve on their own if you swap greasy skincare for good exfoliating products. However Milia may not always resolve on their own and at Ever Clinic we have the tools to assist.
A mild skin peel, offered by our Aesthetician Caitlin, will refresh your skin in general but also help in the natural resolution of the milia.
Alternatively consider seeing Dr Cormac who will use minor surgical techniques to safely release the contents of blocked ducts.
Milia questions answered
What are milia?
Especially common in babies, they can occur at all ages. They usually arise on the face, most commonly around the eyes and cheeks. The underlying cause is a blockage of sweat ducts by dead skin cells. This can explain a worsening in the appearance and number of milia after any skin injury. Some common creams are too greasy for the skin and prevent natural shedding or exfoliation. Although milia are harmless, people often find them unsightly and wish to have them removed.
Does milia removal hurt?
Removal of milia is virtually painless and doesn’t normally require any numbing cream.
Is milia removal safe?
Yes, as long as it is done safely by a trained professional.
What results will I see?
For most patients, the removal of milia is permanent.Some patients are prone to repeated break-outs and these are usually new milia.
Is there any down-time after removal of milia?
Some redness is to be expected in the treatment area.
