    Why Do Milia Form?

    • Keratin Buildup: It forms when keratin becomes trapped beneath the skin’s surface.
    • Skin Trauma: Secondary milia can develop due to injuries, burns, or rashes.
    • Skincare Products: Heavy or occlusive skincare products may contribute.
    • Sun Exposure: Excessive sun exposure can lead to formation.

    Milia: Harmless or Hazardous?

    • Generally Harmless: Milia are typically harmless and painless.
    • Potential Discomfort: They may cause mild discomfort or aesthetic concerns.
    • Consult a Dermatologist: While generally benign, consulting a dermatologist is advisable for a proper diagnosis.

    Strategies for Treating Milia

    • Professional Extraction: Dermatologists can safely extract milia using sterile instruments.
    • Topical Retinoids: Certain creams or gels may help promote skin turnover and milia resolution.
    • Chemical Peels: Exfoliating treatments like chemical peels can aid in milia removal.
    • Laser Therapy: Lasers may be used to target these spots and stimulate collagen production.

    Prevention and Home Care Tips

    • Gentle Exfoliation: Regular but gentle exfoliation can help prevent milia.
    • Lightweight Products: Opt for non-comedogenic, lightweight skincare products.
    • Sun Protection: Shield your skin from excessive sun exposure.
