Have you ever noticed tiny white bumps around your eyes or on your face? Like most people, you might have tried to poke or squeeze them, thinking they are just pimples or whiteheads. However, you found them firm and hard to squeeze out. In this case, you might be dealing with milia. Don't worry! Like acne, milia is a very common and mostly benign skin condition. Do you want to know what milia are, how you get them, and how to prevent and get rid of them? Then you've come to the right place! We will even let you in on the most powerful and safe method for getting beautiful, milia-free skin!
What causes milia?
Unlike pimples and comedones, there is no direct cause of milia. Milia are very common among all age groups and can appear randomly. Still, some factors make milia appear more often. For example, some people have genetically milia-prone skin. Daily habits such as not using sunscreens, not exfoliating the skin, and using overly heavy skin products can also increase the chance of milia formation.
How can I prevent milia?
There are habits you can take up to reduce the chance of milia forming on your skin. First and foremost, you must wear sunscreens daily and exfoliate your skin regularly with a gentle chemical peeling agent. When choosing skincare and makeup products, opt for the light-weighted and non-comedogenic options. Look for skin products with vitamins C and E for their skin-reinvigorating benefits. You may also add retinoids or retinol to your skincare regime for more potent exfoliating and anti-ageing effects.
How does The Acne Treatment remove and prevent milia?
The Acne Treatment by New Beauty uses the painless, safe and non-invasive two-way spiral suction and drainage technology to exfoliate your skin and unclog pores, dissolving exiting milia. A medical-grade hydrating serum is then infused into your innermost skin layer, thus hydrating and vitalizing the skin cells for a better renewing cycle and collagen proliferation, resulting in vibrant, clear skin!
Who is suitable for The Acne Treatment?
The Acne Treatment is safe and non-irritating for all skin types. It is suitable for most people with milia, acne, or comedones. Still, we recommend you consult our professional skincare expert for a detailed evaluation, especially if you have skin conditions such as eczema and rosacea.
How should I take care of my skin after undergoing a session of The Acne Treatment?
First, you must not use any skin products containing AHA/BHA or brightening agents (i.e. vitamin C, retinol) for 2 weeks post-session. This is because these ingredients can be irritating to your skin. You should also avoid photothermal treatments (i.e. laser, IPL, radiofrequency) on your treated milia lesions for 2 weeks. Lastly, you should gently cleanse and nurture your skin with non-irritating and hydrating face washes, serums, moisturizers, and face masks.
