Understanding Milia

Milia, those small white bumps, are a common occurrence on all skin types, ages, and genders. Typically forming around and under the eye area, milia is a result of keratin becoming trapped beneath the skin’s outer layer, forming tiny cysts. While these bumps are not harmful, FTT Skin Clinics recognizes the concern some may have about their appearance. We offer a range of effective treatments to address and remove milia. If you’ve noticed any new milia bumps, we advise consulting your GP or booking a consultation with our experienced physicians.

Secondary Milia
