Milia are small, white or yellowish bumps that often appear on the skin, typically around the eyes, cheeks, and forehead. They are caused by trapped keratin (a protein found in the skin) beneath the surface. While milia are generally harmless, some people may choose to have them removed for cosmetic reasons.
- There are several methods for removing milia, including extraction by a Dermal Therapist.
- During extraction, a sterile needle is used to create a small opening in the skin’s surface, allowing the trapped keratin to be gently extracted.
- After extraction, the area is typically treated with an antiseptic to prevent infection.
LED Light Therapy
- LED Light Therapy is often used as a complementary step after milia removal.
- LED therapy can have various benefits for the skin, including reducing inflammation, promoting collagen production, and improving overall skin tone and texture.
- After milia extraction, LED therapy can help soothe the treated area, reduce redness and inflammation, and promote skin healing.
- Milia removal followed by LED Light Therapy can result in smoother, clearer skin in the treated area.
- While the milia themselves may be gone immediately after extraction, some redness or mild irritation may occur, and this can be improved with LED therapy.
- Procedure Time: The duration of milia removal and LED therapy may vary depending on the number of milia being treated and the specific needs of the patient.
- Downtime Required: There is typically minimal downtime associated with milia removal and LED therapy. Most individuals can resume their regular activities shortly after the procedure.
- Results Duration: The results of milia removal are usually long-lasting, although new milia may develop over time. Maintenance sessions may be required if new milia appear.
- Cost of Treatment: $110 – $170
Consultation with a skincare professional can help determine the most suitable treatment plan for your specific milia and skin type.
