What are Milia Seeds?

Pretty as they sound, these are not flower seeds. Also known as oilseeds, milia seeds are keratin-filled bumps that usually develop around the eye and nose area. They’re the bane of every quest to silky smooth skin because they cause a rough and uneven skin texture. Commonly found in people of all ages, they form when the skin does not slough off normally and get trapped in pores. Not so pretty now, are they?

Milia Seeds 101: What are they?

What Causes Them?

Milia seeds are often caused by overly rich creams or oil-based skin care products. For some people, they are hereditary or caused by hormonal changes. Certain medications and pollutants can also be contributing factors. However, before you start panicking about those little white bumps on your face, do note that these are fairly harmless.

How To Prevent Them?

Milia Seeds 101: Avoid creams that are too rich for the eye area

Avoid using creams that are too rich for your eye area as it might cause pore congestion. Rich concealers are often silent causes as people often use them to cover up dark eye circles. Consider using an oil-free lotion or cream, or possibly change products altogether, as an allergy may also be a cause. Sunburns may also cause damage leading to the cysts, so be sure to wear sunblock if burning is a problem. Most importantly, keep your hands off your face to prevent excess bacteria from getting on it!

How To Get Rid Of Milia Seeds?

Common ways include the use of a topical retinoid cream such as tretinoin, tazarotene or adapalene; removal with a sterile lancet or scalpel followed by the use of a comedone extractor, a tool used to remove whiteheads and blackheads; a series of fruit acid peels or microdermabrasion procedures; and carbon dioxide laser treatment. You should consult a dermatologist or aesthetic specialist for the appropriate course of treatment. Most importantly, do not try to remove them by squeezing them yourself, as it will very likely lead to scars.

Having acne or pigmentation problems? You might want to consider adding an Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatment to your current facial treatment. Generally, IPL therapy serves as a good compliment to facial treatments as it speeds up the recovery process, which tends to produce better results as the IPL technology allows deeper penetration into the skin, rejuvenating and enhance renewal of collagen which helps in the absorption of products.

The IPL system releases yellow, green and red lights that are emitted in a series of short pulses. The yellow/green light destroys the bacteria which causes acne that thrives in our skin, while the red light directly targets the overactive sebaceous glands that cause outbreaks of pustules (pimples). The light conversion to heat is targeted accurately to the cells deep in the skin, initiating shrinkage of the inflamed sebaceous glands which helps to prevent over-production of excess sebum. Additionally, IPL treatment is effecting in correcting common skin pigmentation problems such as age spots, sun-induced freckles, and symptoms of rosacea, birthmarks, and unsightly veins, acne scarring and other blemishes.

IPL – Black Magic for Skin Rejuvenation

If you are looking for skin rejuvenation, consider the Black Magic™ IPL Treatment instead. Black Magic™ treatment does not target pigments, but aims to rejuvenate the skin instead, by tightening the pores and reducing sebum production. Black Magic™ treatment uses a proprietary formula created in Korea, known as The Photo Reborn Gel or Plasma Magic Gel.  Unlike conventional IPL Gel, which has a clear colour, the Plasma Magic Gel is black.

 

Normal IPL treatment uses an IPL gel that helps prevent light from scattering during the treatment. During a normal IPL treatment, there may be some loss of energy during travelling of light when it’s penetrating into the skin. However, the formulated Plasma Magic Gel can greatly reduce the energy loss and better absorb the light for better results using less energy. Thus, the Black Magic treatment therefore works effectively by diminishing the look of pores and reduces oiliness of skin.

LED Light Therapy

An IPL session at Porcelain includes the use of LED lights to target various skin problems. The LED Light Therapy is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses non-invasive, non-ablative Red Light Therapy & Blue Light Therapy, and Infrared Light treatment for anti-aging skincare, facial wrinkles, acne treatment, stretch marks and more. It is very common to see that red light therapy associated with anti-aging and blue light therapy to fight acne. The following light colours used in a typical LED Light Therapy treatment tell you the benefits associated with each colour:

 

Red

  • Encourages collagen & elastin regeneration
  • Increases oxygen & blood flow hence perfect to prevent inflammation + acne

Blue

  • Kills bacteria, hence helps with acne

Green

  • Reduces hyper pigmentation
  • Improves skin tone and texture
  • Smoothen fine lines and wrinkles

Yellow

  • Helps treat sunburns, redness, swelling and eczema

 

Want a certain colour to zero in on your problems? A typical treatment at Porcelain will have our friendly therapists selecting the right combination of colours to cater to your unique skin type.

If you are currently undergoing facial treatment for acne or pigmentation, adding on IPL treatments will be a great compliment as technology enables deeper penetration of the products compared to normal facial treatments. For the treatment of problem skin, this means achieving expected results in a faster and more effective manner.

The cold weather has arrived and women of a certain age are cheering. Turtlenecks, according to Harper’s Bazaar Australia, are ”in” this season and, as for every winter, they are a godsend because they cover up the turtle necks of 40-plus ladies. The tedious truth is that the necks and decolletage become pretty rough. For years they’ve been sun-exposed and overlooked and then one day we wake up and they’ve aged before our faces have. Before our very eyes. Young women take heed and read on. The neck becomes a giveaway that neither Botox nor surgery can remedy.

Women are mostly concerned with the face so their skin care regime stops there. Neck, decolletage and the hands often betray a person’s true age but is covering them up the answer? Necks seem to shorten with age as the chin line becomes heavier. A woman basically loses her long and, if so blessed, swanlike neck, becoming a squat head on shoulders, like a child’s drawing. Polonecks and high oriental collars can make it seem as if there’s no neck at all. The most flattering necklines to women no longer in the blush of youth are those that stay away from the neck. What the neck needs is some proper attention and skincare.

‘Prevention is better than cure, so it is wise to start at the same time as the general skincare regime. Once the signs of premature ageing of the neck and decolletage have set in, they are extremely hard to treat. Signs of premature ageing on the neck are loose skin (turkey neck), lines and sagging skin. Unless the decolletage is protected it will show the common signs of sun damage – the V-shape of skin discolouration, redness and freckles.

Cosmopolitan Facial – OxyRevive (Neck)

This treatment incorporates the physics of the high velocity jet stream targeted at a point-size area of your skin to achieve the functions of dermabrasion. Using Sodium Chloride, a saline solution closer to the pH of the skin, as a mediu, this treatment ensures skin is well hydrated and pumped with Oxygen while we remove congested pores and dead skin cells. This treatment is suitable for acne lesions, cell regeneration, wrinkles, removal of dead skin and skin moisturizing effect. It has immediate results with no down time.

3Deep™ Radio Frequency

Radio Frequency (RF) energy treatment is a new and promising technology for non-surgical tightening of the early signs of loose or sagging skin. It heats up the subcutaneous fat beneath the face skin so that it ruses up to the skin surface. The heat generated in the subcutaneous fat is transferred back to the surface collagen layer in the skin, which then immediately contracts for an immediate skin lift.
