Milia & Wart Removal

The science bit

What Are Milia?

Milia, also called milk spots, are frequently found around the eyes, cheeks, nose and forehead. They are small white bumps that form as a result of keratin, a protein, which gets trapped under the skin. They usually measure 1-2mm in size and often appear in small groups.


What Causes Milia?

Milia around the eyes can be associated with high cholesterol, but not in every case.

What Does Milia Treatment Involve?

We apply a topical local anaesthetic cream to the milia then use a process called thermocoagulation. This applies heat via a small needle to the centre of the milia to release its contents and leave clear skin behind.

How Effective Is Milia Treatment?

You may need more than one visit to the clinic depending on the number of milia you have.

What Is The Recovery Time from Milia Treatment?

Recovery is immediate, but you might get some redness and it is best not to apply make-up straight away. It’s also wise to avoid using astringent products overnight. Simply keep the area clean for a couple of days and apply aloe vera or a post-recovery cream to soothe the area and support healing.

What Are Warts?

Warts are caused by a virus that lives in the nerve endings on your face, body and hands.

Seborrheic warts often happen as we age, or come about thanks to excessive sun damage. You’ll notice small crusty brown lesions that can look unsightly.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Causes Warts?
Wart are caused by infection, spread by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV).
Are Warts Contagious?
Warts can be contagious from skin to skin contact. They can take many months to form and can also disappear on their own without treatment.
How Are Warts Removed?
Warts can be very successfully removed by freezing or cauterising them with heat. For heat removal we use a topical local anaesthetic before removing the wart by introducing a small needle. But the most common way we remove warts is via cryotherapy, which involves freezing the wart. This can take several treatments.
How Effective Is Wart Treatment?
Warts are caused by a virus. This means they can return and can need further treatment. In many cases, once they have been removed they don’t return to the same area but you might find they turn up in new places.
What Is The Recovery Time?
Recovery is immediate but it can take several visits to completely eradicate a wart, since some of them can be surprisingly stubborn. The area treated will be a little red and tender to the touch once the anaesthetic has worn off. You should avoid any friction or rubbing of the area treated.
How Will I Feel?
Our clients tell us they feel more confident, more able to work and socialise, and enjoy increased self-esteem once their wart or warts have been removed.
