Milia Seeds, Skin Warts and Moles

Moles are clusters of pigmented cells appearing as brown or black spots on the skin. They come in various shapes and sizes. While some are seen as “beauty marks,” others may be unwanted.


Milia seeds are oil deposits left behind by extremely rich creams, pollutants or oil-based products. They are also hereditary or caused by hormonal changes. Some medications also encourage production of milia seeds.

Skin Warts are common warts that are actually an infection in the top layer of skin. When the virus invades this outer layer of skin, usually through a tiny scratch, it causes rapid growth of cells on the outer layer of skin – creating the wart.

Moles occur when cells in the skin grow in a cluster and produces melanin, thus giving the mole its colour. They may darken after sun exposure, during our teen years and even grow bigger during pregnancy.
