Milia Removal at Home and more...

First lets start by What is Milia?

Isn't it annoying.

They don't have any reason to appear but stay with us . So BAD!!


What is Milia?

Milia are small, yellow or white cysts that appear in clusters, usually on the face. They are often found in newborns but can affect people of any age.

Unlike whiteheads, which contain pus, milia aren’t a sign of clogged pores.


Home remedies to remove milia under the eyes

  • Clean and exfoliate the skin. Milia occur under the eyes due to an excess of keratin. Gently exfoliating the area with a warm washcloth may get rid of dead skin cells and help bring trapped keratin to the surface.

  • Steam. Spending some time in your bathroom with the door closed and a hot shower running creates an easy at-home steam treatment for your face.

  • Avoid picking or poking. It may seem counterintuitive, but leaving milia bumps alone helps them heal faster. If you pick milia bumps to the point where they become irritated, infection and scarring become more likely.

Medical treatments to remove milia under the eyes

In India there are generally 2 methods adopted by doctors

  • Laser treatment, the milia are burned by laser.

  • Incision by needle. The upper layer is pinched by sharp needle and white milia is sucked out by tweezer.

Special precaution after treatment should be taken as skin pores are open and have high chance of contamination by pollution.


Prevention

It is not always possible to prevent milia, for example, when they occur in newborns.

However, when milia are associated with other skin conditions or injuries, swift treatment may keep them from appearing.

Tips for preventing milia include:

  • avoiding excessive exposure to the sun

  • avoiding the use of thick creams or oil-based products

  • exfoliating between 2 and 3 times a week

Instant glow scrub for normal skin and Anti acne scrub for acne prone skin are helpful in treating and preventing acne.
