Milia Removal

What are Milia? (A.K.A milk spots, calcium spots, oil seeds or white spots)

Milia are tiny, hard, white dots located under the upper layer of the skin. Often found around the eye area, cheeks, nose and chin. These occur when keratin/dead skin cells become trapped under the skin.

How does the treatment work?

Milia are treated by applying the heat energy of electrolysis to them.

What should I expect to see afterwards?

After treatment the surrounding skin may appear red and feel warm for a few hours. A tiny, pin-dot crust will form which will heal and fall away, usually within 7-10 days. This will not leave a mark.

How many treatments?

Usually between 1 and 3 treatments are required depending on how well the milia respond.

Does it hurt?

You may feel a very small ‘pin-prink’ or a slight heat sensation, but this is very quick and short lived.

How much does it cost?

The minimum charge is £40 and price may increase depending on the amount/size of milia to be treated.


For 2-3 days after milia removal, bathe the area in cool water only. Avoid the use of perfumed products on the skin e.g. Soap, cleanser, moisturisers etc. each time the area is bathed apply a small amount of Aloe Vera gel to soothe the skin and aid the healing process. DO NOT PICK OR SCRATCH. Leave the area to heal naturally.
