What are Milia?

Milia are small white or yellowish raised cysts, bumps or spots on the skin. They are normally found around the eye area and cheeks. Milia feel quite hard and do not have any redness or inflammation. 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.

What causes Milia?

Milia are caused by the build-up of keratin under the skin.

Milia can sometimes take a long time to disappear naturally, but can be professionally removed through a simple, minor procedure. There are a variety of treatment options to remove Milia depending on the type, location and number of Milia that need removing.

How we remove Milia…

The most common type of Milia Removal is by incising the Milia with a needle and squeezing or pricking out the contents. The cyst can also be destroyed by gentle cautery or cryotherapy
