Milia are small white hard spots which live very superficially under the skin. They usually appear around the eyes, cheeks and eyelids and are a blockage. The blockage is a protein called keratin which hardens. They are unsightly and become bothersome when multiple.
Our Advanced Cosmetic Procedure using short-wave diathermy is a safe, effective and quick method of treating milia.
The exact cause is unknown but they are often related to a high cholesterol diet, dry dehydrated skin, high intake of vitamin C, using products on the face which are too rich or acidic and there is possibly a heredity link.
The tip of a small probe (about the size of an eyelash) is inserted into the centre of the Milia. A small stinging sensation will be felt and popping sensation may be experienced as the Milia is treated.
