Milia is a group of small, solid, white, keratin filled cysts, that appear under the skin when keratin will stay stuck below its surface.Keratin is a powerful protein found in the tissues of the skin cells, hair and nails. These cysts are large or problematic looking like pimples, but it is very easy to identify them.
They can occur at all ages, but usually occurs in newborns. Even if they disappear within a few weeks, nearly half of the newborn babies have signs of miles. They are normally large about 1-2 mm and often appears in areas around the nose, eyes and cheeks. But,also they can appear on the other body parts.
See how to remove them:
- Subcutaneous prick
This is the most regular method of dealing with milia. Take a thin and sterilized needle under the skin to inject each cyst and inject the liquid.
Another simple and helpful way to get rid of Milia is with local application of a small amount of cream with retinoids on the cystic bumps.
If your milia is continued, you may decide to eliminate a chemical peeling or Microdermabrasion.
