Milia are small white or yellowish raised cysts, bumps or spots on the skin. They are normally found around the eye area and cheeks, but can appear anywhere on the face or body. Unlike a pimple or spot, milia feel quite hard, almost like a small piece of grit under the skin, and do not have any redness or inflammation as you might expect with whiteheads or acne-related spots. It is very common to have several milia appear in clusters on the skin around the eyes, but it is possible to have just one milium at a time and they can occur on any part of the body, including the groin and genital area.
How is milia removed?
At Evolve Medical we use the following method to extract milia. Once the skin has been cleaned, a small needle is used to create a tiny incision allowing the contents of the milia to be carefully extracted.
What causes milia?
Milia are caused by the build-up of keratin (a naturally occurring protein) beneath the surface of the skin.
Sometimes products that do not suit your skin type can cause a build up under the skin
