Milia is a small cyst that protrudes from the skin with a whitish or yellowish tinge and is mainly a mass of accumulated keratin which is formed when this protein is trapped under the surface layer of the skin. Keratin is a resistant protein found mainly in the skin, hair and nails.
Milia can occur at any age, from babies to the elderly.
Its appearance is usually associated with skin lesions such as skin diseases accompanied by blisters, burns, allergies and irritations, surgeries or chronic damage from sunlight.
In infants and very young children it is not necessary to have medical intervention, as milia usually breaks down automatically within a few weeks. In older children and adults, it may subside within a few months of onset.
If milia is frequently irritated or irritated, the dermatologist can remove it with the help of a sterile needle, diathermy, cauterization or cryotherapy. The specialist may alternatively suggest the application of retinoids, chemical peels or lasers.
In the specific case that we quote, the opening of the millets is done with the state-of-the-art CO2 laser of Deka Smart Xide Punto.
This laser technology allows the skin to heal quickly without complications such as hyperpigmentation and scarring.
