Milia 101: The Breakdown

Milia, also known as milk spots, are small, white bumps that commonly appear on the face, particularly around the eyes and cheeks. These bumps are caused by the accumulation of dead skin cells and sebum in the pores, and while they are harmless, they can be unsightly and difficult to get rid of.

At Allana Davis Studio in Toronto, we offer milia removal treatments to help our clients get rid of these pesky bumps and achieve a smoother, clearer complexion. Allana Davis is an experienced aesthetician who uses a variety of techniques to safely and effectively remove milia, including extraction, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels.

While milia removal treatments are generally considered safe and effective, there may be some downtime associated with the procedure. Depending on the specific treatment used and the individual's skin type and sensitivity, patients may experience redness, swelling, and mild discomfort in the treated area. However, these effects are typically temporary and can be easily managed with over-the-counter pain medication and cold compresses.

It is important to note that milia removal treatments are not a one-time fix – the bumps may reappear if the underlying cause is not addressed. Therefore, it is important to maintain a consistent skincare routine and avoid activities that may irritate the skin, such as picking at the bumps or using harsh skincare products.

At Allana Davis Studio, we strive to provide our clients with the highest level of care and expertise when it comes to milia removal treatments. Allana is an experienced aesthetician whom is dedicated to helping her clients achieve their desired results and maintain healthy, radiant skin. Contact us today to schedule your milia removal treatment and start your journey to clear, smooth skin.

Treatments Include:

  • Deroofing. A sterile needle picks out the contents of the cyst.
  • Topical retinoids. These vitamin A-containing creams help exfoliate your skin.
  • Chemical peels. Chemical Peels cause the first layer of skin to peel off, unearthing new skin
