Struggling to knock those stubborn white bumps on your skin? These persistent bumps are often assumed to be whiteheads, but in reality they are milia. Rather than a swollen pore, milia lies beneath the superficial layers of skin. You may notice that the lump feels hard and acne treatments aren’t working to get rid of them.
Because milia is dead skin buildup beneath the surface, there is nowhere for the debris to escape and no way to extract them on your own. Trying to squeeze milia out on your own simply won’t work and will only lead to further skin damage.
Finding a trusted provider
When it comes to finding a provider for your milia extraction in Rochester, experience matters. Milia extractions require a certain level of unique knowledge and skill, as well as access to the proper sterile tools.
