I have gotten these raised spots on the face recently, for close to 4 months. What can be the cause and the remedy for this? Thanks.

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (2)

Dear LB,

Thank you for your question. I agree with Dr Ho, the raised spots appears to look like milia. Milia are completely harmless, and in some cases they will eventually clear by themselves. 

Treatment:

1. Observe and wait - It may clear on its own

2. Topical tretinoin (Vitamin A) - the least invasive treatment, but variable efficacy

3. Incision (cut) and manual expression 

4. Laser - Carbon Dioxide Laser/Erbium:YAG Laser

5. Chemical peel and dermabrasion - efficacy debatable 

Hope this helps and all the best! 

Best Wishes,

Vincent

Hi LB,
 
These are milia seeds. Your pores have been blocked up by dead skin cells.
 
The 2 main modes of removal are:
 
1) Electrocautery
2) Laser removal
 
Cheers,
Rachel
