Milia is persistent, and treating these little white bumps is different than treating acne. You can’t “pop” these bumps or put on a salicylic acid pimple patch to make them disappear. Unlike pimples, they contain hardened dead skin rather than liquid.
So, what causes this and what type of doctor removes milia? Essentially, the build-up of dead skin cells in your pores causes milia. Once you’ve developed these bumps, you can come into the Envision Aesthetics office for professional milia removal in Fairport for immediate relief without inflicting lasting damage on your skin.
Ingredients to look for in milia removal products in Brighton
When it comes to properly treating any skin condition, understanding what active ingredients do can help you reach your goals. Ingredients that speed up the skin cell turnover process, which is typically about 28 days, include:
- Salicylic acid
- Alpha hydroxy acid
- Lactic acid
Ingredients to avoid in milia removal products in Brighton
Mineral oils, which can be found in makeup and skincare products, can cause keratin to accumulate in your pores and lead to milia formation. These oils create a thin film on your skin, which can be great for protecting your complexion from pollution, but also lead to clogged pores.
Some of the most common mineral oils found in skincare products to avoid if you are milia-prone include:
- Paraffin oil
- Liquid paraffin
You should also avoid thick creams that contain other barrier-creating ingredients, such as:
- Cocoa butter
- Linseed oil
