MILIA: How to Remove the Small White Skin Cysts?
Have you ever heard of the term milia? Well, if you haven’t, then you should definitely read the article below. First, let me tell you what’s milia – it’s a group of small, solid, white, keratin filled cysts, which are formed under the skin. And they usually appear when keratin remains stuck below its surface. What’s keratin? Well, keratin is a strong protein found in the tissues of the skin cells, hair and nails. These cysts look just like pimples and they are easy to notice.
This tends to occur a lot in newborns, but it can happen to anyone at any age, they usually disappear after a couple of weeks. They are about 1-2 mm bog and you can find them on the nose, eyes and checks but they can show up on different parts of the body as well.
Here we have three alternative methods to remove them.
1st Method – you can use the comedone extractor to gently coax the milia out through the small opening. Note: you should be very gentle. And then, when you have made the teeny tear on top of the milia use tweezers to lift out. When you are done with that, you need to finish up with your usual skincare routine.
2nd Method – note: you will need a sharp needle, very pointed tweezers (flat-ended tweezers will not work), and/or acomedone extractor. Here’s what you need to do: first, you need to cleanse your face with gentle and water-soluble cleanser and washcloth or cleaning brush. Then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Make sure skin is completely dry before you start remove milia. And remember, in order to prevent infection, you need to rub the needle, tweezers, and comedone extractor with alcohol.
3rd Method – here’s what you need to do: first, with needle or tweezers, make the teeniest tear in skin- on top of milia or right next to it and you should be very gentle. That gives enough access to remove the milia. Thank you so much for dropping by and reading this blog post.
