Are you confused about how to remove milia seeds from your face? Milia, also known as “oilseed” or “milk spots,” are tiny white bumps that appear on the skin of adults. They are caused by a build-up of keratin and dead skin cells that become trapped underneath the surface of the skin.

In this article, we will discuss the various treatment methods available for milia removal, as well as their prices.

What are milia seeds?

Milia seeds are small, white, cyst-like bumps that can appear on the skin, particularly in the nose and eye regions. They are caused by the accumulation of dead skin cells and excessive oil, leading to clogged sweat glands and skin pores. This can result in uneven skin textures and the formation of oil seeds on the skin's surface.

  1. Primary milia: This type of milia occurs when dead skin cells become trapped in small pockets near the surface of the skin, forming tiny cysts. They are most commonly found in newborns but can also occur in adults.
  2. Secondary milia: Secondary milia is a result of damage to the skin, such as from burns, blistering diseases, long-term use of topical corticosteroids, or exposure to certain chemicals. Unlike primary milia, secondary milia can develop anywhere on the body.

Why do adults get milia seeds?

Adults may develop milia seeds due to a number of factors, including ageing, genetics, and excessive oil production. The skin naturally loses its ability to shed dead skin cells as it ages, causing them to accumulate on the skin's surface and form milia seeds.

Additionally, some skin types may be more prone to developing milia seeds due to the overproduction of oil, leading to clogged sweat glands and pores.

Treatments to remove milia seeds:

There are several treatments available to remove milia seeds, including fractional CO2 laser treatment, manual milia seed extraction, chemical peels, and radiofrequency technology.

Manual extraction
