• In one In a recent Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper removes a cluster of milieu cysts that surround a woman's eye.
• Miliocysts are more common in newborns, but rarely in adulthood.
• In most cases they are benign, and if left untreated, they will disappear by themselves in the course of a few weeks.
When we talk about transformations, it's usually someone who started eating healthier, went to the gym, and got fit Dr. Pimple Popper, also known as Dermatologist and TLC Moderator, Dr. Sandra Lee, shows in her latest Instagram video a very different – and much smaller – type of transformation. Much, much smaller.
In the video, Dr. According to MedicalNewsToday Lee claims that this is a case of milial cysts, which are tiny bumps (about 1 to 2 millimeters) that occur when keratin is trapped under the skin. While they are more common in children – especially infants – they can affect adults and are usually nothing more than a nuisance that gradually disappears in a month or two.
As the video shows, they tend to form around the eyes and are relatively easy for a dermatologist to remove if they persist for a long time or otherwise bother the patient. Regular scrubs – in other words, washing your face – and the use of sunscreen can significantly reduce the risk of infection.
If you look at more dramatic transformations by Dr. Ing. Lee, you do not have to wait much longer. Pimple Popper returns to the TLC headquarters tomorrow at 9/8.
