Is laser treatment effective for getting rid of small and skin-coloured bumps on my skin? (photo)
How do I get rid of small clear / skin-coloured bumps on my skin? They are mainly on the sides of my cheeks and forehead. I always cleanse my make up thoroughly and exfoliate once a week, but the bumps can’t seem to go away. I was told by my facial therapist that they are caused by clogged pores. Is laser treatment effective for getting rid of the bumps?
Most of the bumps on your picture appear to be little keratotic growths of the skin.
These are indeed effectively removed by lasers which can carefully singe them off. Other growths, such as sebaceous hyperplasia, syringomas, milia seeds, etc can also be effectively removed with the appropriate lasers.
These growths aren't caused by clogged pores; they're usually due to age, UV exposure, or just regular overgrowth of certain components of the skin.
Exfoliation and acidic toners/retins can help to reduce the occurrence of these growths but will not get rid of the existing ones.
