Is fat freezing for me?

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.
Want to remove milia – also known as milk spots – on your face, easily and safely?
Lamprobe is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that tackles minor skin abnormalities by using high frequency and radio frequency. The Lamprobe does not penetrate the skins surface but it targets the abnormities to their core.
By utilising radio and high frequency, it effectively targets and treats the built-up keratin and sebum inside milia, in seconds. Any trapped sebum, however hardened it may be, is able to be safely and precisely extracted and vaporised.
When you have your milia removal treatment, any pain you experience is minimal. This procedure is short, and any discomfort felt is small. You will likely feel a scratch sensation with the needle removal option. If you have your milia removed by Hyrefactor, this is mildly more uncomfortable, but because the treatment time is short, the experience is very manageable.
We will, of course, talk through any of your concerns regarding this procedure when you come in for your consultation.
At Este Medical we pride ourselves in maintaining the highest of standards in the skincare profession. We ensure all of our treatments are carried out safely and to an extremely professional standard. When you choose us to perform your milia removal treatment you can rest assured that we perform this procedure in a safe, professional, and expert manner.
Treatment time depends on the number of milia spots that are being removed. If you have one, treatment time could be completed in around ten minutes, but if you have a cluster of spots to be removed, this will obviously take longer. We will be able to give you a better idea of treatment time when we meet you and take a closer look at your milia.
You can get back to your normal routine as soon as your procedure is over, but you may notice red patches on your skin where the removal took place. This should subside over the course of a few hours. You will be able to see an improvement in your skin immediately as the extraction will have taken place and the milia removed.
Milia removal is, in most cases, permanent. However, sometimes more milia spots can appear. When we treat you for your milia we will advise you about the best aftercare and the right skincare products to help keep milia spots at bay.
