Milia are tiny (1-2mm) cysts filled with keratin, a type of protein within the skin. They develop under the top layer of the skin and can often appear around the eyes, nose or on the cheeks and don’t have the same inflammation as whiteheads. There are two main types: Primary milia are formed directly from trapped keratin; Secondary milia form after something clogs the ducts leading to the skin surface, usually after a trauma to the skin, such as an injury or burn.
Treatments include removal with a disposable fine needle or removal with short wave diathermy. All methods are permanent, treatment will depend on size and location of milia.
