Facial - Milia Removal Colchester 

Milia Removal 
At the Mind Body and Soul, we can help remove facial milia. Not to be mistaken for acne, milia appear to be small white bumps that are neither red nor painful. Milia occurs when keratin, a type of protein that makes up your hair, skin and nails, becomes trapped beneath the skin's surface. 
Usually, milia group together on the nose, cheeks, skin and chin, though they may appear elsewhere. If you want milia removed, book an appointment with our specialists. After booking the appointment, a member of our friendly team will book a consultation to go over what to expect and what you'd like out of the treatment. 

What are the types of milia? 

There are various types of milia, including neonatal, primary, traumatic, milia en plaque, and multiple eruptive milia. The most common type of milia can occur at any age. This type of milia is typically found on the: 
Though, it's important to note that they can affect all areas of the body. 

What Are The Benefits Of Milia Removal? 

If you'd like clearer skin or less irritation, our milia removal treatment is perfect for you. There is a wide range of advantages to milia removal. These benefits include: 
Removing the source of irritation, such as itchiness of the affected area. 
Improving self-confidence due to its common location on the face can make people highly self-conscious about their appearance. 
Make makeup and skincare application a smoother process. 
It is important to note that it's not medically necessary to treat milia, as it usually goes away over a few weeks or months. However, our specialists are able to speed up the process and leave your skin looking fresh and smooth. 
Before Your Milia Removal 
Before your milia removal appointment, a member of our friendly team will get in touch with you. They'll go over what to expect during the treatment and check if you have any questions or concerns leading up to the appointment. During the consultation, our specialist will also discuss what types of results you would like made from the treatment. 
During Your Milia Removal Treatment 
When you arrive at our Colchester clinic, our specialist will meet with you and take you to a private room for your milia removal treatment. Before carrying out the removal, they will make sure to go over the treatment steps and ensure that any questions you have are answered. 
The milia removal treatment will involve our therapist cleansing your skin. After ensuring the area is clear of makeup and impurities, the specialist will use a sterile needle to remove the tiny flap of skin that is trapping the keratin flake inside the pore. They will then squeeze or prick out the flake. 
This method is known as de-roofing and is the most common treatment used to remove milia. 
After Your Milia Removal 
After having our therapist remove the milia from your skin, they will go over any aftercare they can recommend. It's not uncommon for people to experience slight redness to the treated area following the removal of the affected milia area. Though, the redness usually subsides within a matter of hours. 
Once the milia have been removed, you should have clear skin, with no scaring or marks left behind following the treatment. 

What Causes Milia? 

Milia can occur when the skin can't expel tiny flakes of keratin. In most cases with adults, this is usually due to overexposure to the sun, which has caused the skin to be leathery. The skin has difficulty expelling the keratin flakes to the surface. In some cases, milia can also occur due to blistering, preventing natural skin exfoliation.
