Milia, commonly known as milk spots or harden whiteheads, are small white bumps /pimples that appear on people’s faces. While they’re a common skin condition and typically harmless, it can be frustrating to have them around the eyes or lips where makeup isn’t normally worn.
Milia are commonly found in newborns but may also develop in adults if their skin has been irritated by sunburn and harsh chemicals. The good news is that there are several ways to remove milia for good without going through extensive medical procedures.
Milia is caused by the build-up of keratin which is the protein that makes up your nails, hair, and skin. Milia forms when dead cells don’t shed as they should on the skin, becoming trapped beneath the new skin and hardening to develop milia.
Milia can also sometimes happen when skin is irritated by sunburn, cosmetic products that are thick or very oil-based, or harsh chemicals.
There are many ways to get rid of milia depending on the severity. Mila is typically harmless, but you may want them gone if they interfere with your social life or self-esteem.
The most frequent method of Milia Removal we use at CoLaz is advanced electrolysis.
Advanced electrolysis is one of the most effective treatments available for permanent milia removal. The procedure is virtually pain-free, and often clients describe it feels like pinpricks.
We use a fine probe to send a current into the milia. This current breaks down the fatty tissue (or keratin build-up) to be reabsorbed into the skin.
The clinician will leave the treated milia, which will naturally disappear over a few days but can take up to 14 days; however, if the milia are ready for extraction, this can be done straight away.
This all depends on the number of milia required to be removed. Typically, clients will have a few that can be treated in one 15 minute treatment; however, if you have several milia’s, treatments will be spread out over 2 -3 sessions or 15-minute slots.

Milia is a cyst that forms when your skin cells get trapped under the surface. During treatment, if the milia are soft and easy to remove, extraction can occur; however, it is not necessary as milia will be broken down during treatment and reabsorbed into the skin.
