Most common areas for Milia are on the eyelids and beneath the eyes, on the nose and on the cheeks. Milium cysts are most common in newborns, although can occur in adult life too.
The cysts occur when Keratin becomes trapped under the skin. Keratin is a protein found in tissues, hair, and nail cells.
Milia is a common concern, which causes no harm. Although, Milium cysts are more likely to occur on damaged skin, such as those with burns, blisters, sun damage, and those on steroid creams.
Here at Skin Sense GP Clinic, in Chelmsford, we have various methods to remove Milia. These treatments include, but are not limited to, minor surgery, Microneedling, skin peels, retinoid creams (Vitamin A) and Plexr Soft Surgery.
