What Causes Milia?
The cause of Milia is due to keratin that has been trapped under the top layer of the skins surface; keratin is a protective protein that is found in the body. Keratin is present in skin tissue, nail cells and hair. The trapped keratin creates cysts which we know as Milia, and they appear as tiny white spots on the skin,
As excess keratin gets trapped beneath the skins surface, if the build-up doesn’t get expelled naturally, it creates small, white cysts known as milia. Milia is commonly seen in babies and over time they will disappear; though, as an adult, Milia spot removal requires specialist help. Contact our milia removal clinic in Glasgow at Este Medical Group.
