Milia are very common, benign, keratin-filled cysts. These tiny epidermoid cysts are derived from the pilosebaceous follicle. Primary milia arise on facial skin bearing vellus hair follicles. Secondary milia may result from damage to the pilosebaceous unit. Simple removal of milia can be done by gently opening the skin above the milia with a sterile lancet or needle. Milia will typically pop out when pressure is applied with a comedone extractor or forceps. Dermatologists may also prescribe retinoid creams, or advise microdermabrasion. Future milia formation can be minimized by avoiding heavy moisturizers, using oil-free sunscreen and limiting heavy hairspray or hairgel.
Skin tags can vary in appearance, from smooth and irregular, flesh colored or deeply pigmented. They are found primarily in areas where skin forms creases, such as eyelids, armpits, groin, beneath the breasts and torso. Skin tags hang from the surface of the skin on a thin piece of tissue called a stalk. Causes are not entirely known, but genetics, age, and obesity are thought to play a part. Although skin tags are usually benign, speculation by the medical community has been that skin tags may serve as a marker for colon polyps; both types of tissue possibly being influenced by a growth factor enzyme. They can be removed with sharp sterile scissors, by freezing or burning off at the stalk. Bleeding is minimized with cauterization
A procedure similar to electro-cautery, but much lower intensities are used to treat telangiectasia or broken capillaries. Small spider veins, “blood spots”, “blood freckles”, and hemangiomas can be easily removed in 1-3 treatments.
