Blemish Removal Milia Milia are small, hard, white/yellow keratin-filled cysts formed under the skin. They mostly appear around the nose, cheeks, eyes and eyelids (however can be anywhere on the body) and occur when dead skin is trapped under the skin surface. Sun Spots Commonly referred to as ‘sun spots’ or ‘age spots’, lentigos are flat brown spots of pigmentation which most frequently appear on the cheeks or hands. They are more common in those aged over 40 and are caused by accumulative sun exposure. Cherry Angioma Cherry angiomas are small raised red spots often seen on the trunk or chest. Thread Vein on Face Thread veins or broken capillaries commonly occur around or under the nose, or on the cheeks & are often the underlying cause of redness on the cheeks. Spider Naevi are a cluster of broken vessels that can look like a red spot. They occur most frequently on the chest or cheeks and can be quickly & easily removed with thermocoagulation.
