What are milia?


Milia are very small, raised, partly-white or yellowish harmless bumps on the skin. These bumps are a type of skin cyst filled with a protein called keratin. They are most commonly found around the cheeks, nose, eyes, eyelids, forehead and chest.


How can milia be removed?


At Appearances Aesthetics, we offer advanced electrolysis to remove milia easily, with minimal side effects or scarring.
At Appearances Aesthetics, we offer advanced electrolysis to treat milia. This is a heat treatment where a probe is inserted into the area and a current is applied on each lesion, instantly dissolving the fatty tissue via heat cauterisation. 

Does Advanced Electrolysis hurt?


The skin around the eyes is the thinest throughout the body 


Are there any side effects from the treatment?


There is no recovery time as such from advanced electrolysis; you can return to work and normal activities immediately after a treatment.
Depending on the particular skin condition being treated and the size of it, you can expect some post treatment discomfort and scabbing as the area heals.
If the area being treated is on your face, you may wish to plan treatment around social events if you do not wish to attend them before post-treatment healing has completed.


Is there any danger of infection?


Any instrument used in contact with the skin is disposed of after each use. This is especially important with the needle and the needle holder. All areas are sterilised, at least twice, with a specialised skin and instrument disinfectant.
