Milia are a collection of small white spots commonly known as milk spots.
Though common among young babies, Milia can occur in adults and become permanent. While they aren’t a medical risk, many people would prefer to remove them, which is possible with clinic treatment. They are often mistaken for whiteheads, which can cause ill-advised attempts to scratch or squeeze them.
In fact Milia are tiny cysts that are located immediately below the epidermis, the very outer layer of skin, making their distinctive coloring so visible.
Doctors don’t know why Milia come about in adults: unlike some skin conditions they don’t seem to be related to diet, lifestyle or health issues.
Milia can be effectively treated at COSMPLASTIK using our Peel or Cryo technology.
