Milia are a cluster of milium cysts which are small, white bump that usually appears on the nose, under-eyes and cheeks.
A milium occurs when keratin becomes trapped beneath the surface of the skin. Keratin is a strong protein that is an essential component found in skin tissues, hair, and nail cells.
Milia are removed by gentle manual extraction so that the skin does not scar. Treatments can be enhanced with peels.
