Milia removal is a simple process.
These are tiny white hard lumps containing keratin which lie superficially under the surface of the skin. They can be quite difficult to cover with makeup and give the skin a bumpy surface.
The exact cause for Milia is unknown although they are often associated with dry dehydrated skin and sometimes with higher cholesteral levels or can be hereditary. They commonly occur around the eyes, cheekbones and eyelids.
Commonly these have been treated by pricking with a pin and the keratin squeezed out but this causes damage to the skin and is not very sterile.
It is a very simple process to eliminate milia safely and effectively by use of diathermy heat current. A small probe is inserted into each milia and a heat current is used to melt the keratin so that they absorbed into the body.
This is a quick, sterile, safe and precise treatment, whereas the skin surrounding the milia is not damaged and the milia is cleared.
