At Secret Aesthetics, we understand the frustration and self-consciousness caused by milia, a common skin condition that affects individuals of all ages. Milia are tiny, white, dome-shaped cysts that form when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the surface of the skin. While milia are harmless, they can be a source of cosmetic concern. We are dedicated to providing effective milia treatments tailored to your specific needs, helping you achieve smooth, flawless skin.
Milia typically appear as small, white or yellowish bumps on the skin, most commonly around the eyes, cheeks, nose, and forehead. They occur when dead skin cells, trapped beneath the surface, form into small cysts. While the exact cause of milia is not fully understood, several factors contribute to their development:
Cryotherapy is usually used in cancer treatment, though it is effective when the method is transferred to aesthetics in the treatment of skin lesions. The process uses extreme cold created by nitrous oxide to freeze and destroy the target tissue through the formation of ice crystals. These crystals rupture the lesion membrane, destroying its cells. This aesthetic treatment allows Secret Aesthetics to target imperfections with great accuracy, meaning that there is no damage to the surrounding healthy tissue.
The procedure is painless, though you might feel a mild sensation similar to a stinging nettle when the nitrous oxide reaches the point at which the imperfection ends and unaffected, healthy skin begins. For some clients, Cryotherapy is totally painless as the extreme freezing temperatures act as an anaesthetic.
Fluorouracil is part of a group of chemotherapy drugs known as anti-metabolites, which achieve results by stopping cancer cells from working. This treatment comes as a prescription-only cream that is applied daily to the area of skin affected by actinic keratosis. After one week to ten days of treatment, the parts of treated skin become red, scaly and tender. As treatment is continued, sores and crusts may appear, which show success in the treatment as this means defective skin cells have been destroyed.
Mild chemical peels can be effective in treating milia. By exfoliating the skin and promoting cell turnover, chemical peels help to unclog pores and prevent the formation of new milia. This treatment also improves overall skin texture and tone.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that utilizes a gentle stream of microcrystals to exfoliate the skin. This process removes dead skin cells, unclogs pores, and promotes the regeneration of healthier skin, effectively reducing the appearance of milia.
