How We Can Help Get Rid Of Milia

Milia, often called “milk spots” are a common cosmetic issue amongst people of all ages. Although milia are not harmful to our bodies, like acne, those that get milia spots would prefer to have them cleared and removed.

What is Milia?

Milia are small keratin filled cysts that form underneath the dermis. This is caused by dead skin cells trapped under the surface of the skin. As a result of the keratin build up, small white or yellow bumps will appear on the surface of the skin. 

How to Get Rid of Milia

Milia spots can be annoying to deal with and can take weeks to months to go away naturally. If your Milia spots don’t go away naturally, or if you don’t wish to wait, its very important that you visit a skincare professional.  “Your best bet is the pro route.” Writes author Bridget March in harpers bazaar article, “#SkinSchool: Milia causes and treatment options.” Attempting to remove milia on your own can damage the skin and worsen the problem.

 

In our office here at Heights Aesthetics Laser Center, we can remove milia during our personalized facials. Our facials are customized to your skins needs and you personal beauty goals. A trained esthetician will safely remove Milia using a sterile lancet tool. The removal process itself is quick and painless and has no downtime.

Our Facials

A facial is one of the most essential treatments of any esthetic skincare regimen. That’s why we offer relaxing, skin-rejuvenating, personalized facials here at Heights Aesthetic Laser Center. Our facial treatments cleanse, exfoliate, hydrate, and nourish your skin. We can also incorporate treatment for acne, aging, and several other skin woes to give you the best results. Facials are a gentle treatment that is safe and beneficial for all skin types.

Facial massage

Beyond helping your skin stay smooth and radiant through the years, a facial is also an opportunity for you to enjoy a self-care moment. We incorporate a deeply relaxing facial massage into our facials, which delivers benefits like glowing skin through the improved circulation to less pain from things like sinus pressure and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. Our facial massage is designed to drain the lymphatic system as well which has been proved to reduce puffiness, contour the face, and improve your health.

Exfoliation

Even though you can exfoliate your skin at home, there’s a fine line between sloughing off dead skin cells and overdoing it. Here, our Heights Aesthetic Laser Center team can safely deliver a deeper level of exfoliation, clearing away dead and damaged skin cells to reveal the newer, healthier skin underneath. This can help to alleviate both skin tone and texture problems. It can also help to clear skin issues like clogged pores and help your skin remain youthful through the years. 

Hydration

Keeping your skin hydrated is a key part of keeping it healthy and vibrant. If your skin isn’t sufficiently moisturized, you’ll be left with a dull appearance, a rougher skin texture, and reduced elasticity. To avoid skin sagging or uneven skin texture, you can try things like drinking more water, but studies have not yet shown that alone is effective. Fortunately, our team delivers a nourishing, hydrating facial to give your skin the moisture it needs. For targeting dry dehydrated skin, request our gentle Hydro Microdermabrasion Facial.

Anti-aging

Getting regular facials through the years can help you fend off the signs of aging. The right facial for your skin’s specific needs changes as you age. Here at Heights Aesthetic Laser Center, our team customizes your anti-aging facial just for you, delivering the skin health support you need to look your best.

Acne

For treating acne, we offer the Deep Pore Facial. During the Deep Pore Facial, your esthetician will focus primarily on clearing each pore by safely removing blackheads, whiteheads, and pustules on the face.
