Milia are small, white, raised bumps that commonly appear on the face, particularly around the eyes, nose, and cheeks. They are caused by the buildup of dead skin cells and sebum in the pores, and can be difficult to remove with regular cleansing and exfoliation.
Milia removal is a cosmetic procedure that involves the use of a sterile needle or lancet to extract the milia from the skin. The procedure is recommended to be performed by a licensed aesthetician, dermatologist, or other qualified medical professional. Before the procedure, the skin is thoroughly cleaned and sterilized to minimize the risk of infection.
During the procedure, the needle or lancet is used to create a tiny opening in the skin above the milia. The milia are then gently extracted and the skin is then cleaned and disinfected. The procedure is relatively quick and painless, and there is typically little to no downtime.
