Milia free soon

milia freeYesterday, I got my milia taken care of by a lovely dermatologist by the name of Dra. Alberto. Milia started to surface all over my face (mostly, right cheek) when I used a particular skin product. The procedure was hardly painful. Although dear doctor had to cauterize a few stubborn ones. That’s me on the picture, prepped with a topical anaesthetic on my face thirty minutes before the milia extracting procedure.  

Now, my skin is not exactly the type that gets sensitive over products. Unlike some ultra sensitive skin that even needs a particular AC filter on her unit just to make sure unwanted particles won’t go flying in the air that cause her skin some break outs.

I’m checking back with Dra.Alberto next week and I hope the parts on my face that were cauterized won’t leave scars. 🙂

    Kikay – I’m not sure whether this will help or not. Quite a few years back I purchased a book that advised the cause of all kinds of ailments. This particular one that you have it suggested was the cause of a vitamin deficiency. The book is called Let’s eat right to keep fit and it is by Adelle Davis. I think that it was one of the B vitamins, possibly Vitamin B2 but I will have to check.
    I hope that your problem is soon sorted out.

    Best wishes, Polly

    Kikay – well I couldn’t resist – I had to be certain and found the answer in a book called Let’s get well – also by Adelle Davis. It is listed as ‘white heads’ in this book and is sited as a deficiency in Vitamin B2 (this vitamin often found in dairy produce such as milk). I hope that this may be of help to you. 🙂

    Hi 🙂 If you don’t mind my asking, which skincare product were you referring to?
