Have you ever seen someone with lots of tiny little bumps on their eyelids? If the answer is yes, you probably wondered what the hell they were. If the answer is no, you’re probably going to be paying much closer attention to people’s eyelids after this.
Known as milia, these tiny bumps are actually fairly common. According to Dr. Pimple Popper, these bumps are superficial cysts that form “in the top layer of the skin called the epidermis. They appear as tiny, pearly-white bumps just under the surface of the skin. They contain keratin (skin protein) and are harmless”.
But while these bumps don’t cause any health problems, it’s easy to see why someone would want them removed. Unfortunately, though, they can be tough to get rid of on your own and a trip to the dermatologist is usually neccesary.
So when this woman showed up at Dr. Pimple Popper’s office with eyelids covered in milia, you already know what was about to go down.
