Examples of Minor Skin Irregularities


Milia are small superficial cysts commonly seen on the face, especially around the eye area. They will appear as tiny, pearl-white bumps just under the surface of the skin.


Cherry Angiomas

Cherry Angiomas are small clusters of capillaries at the surface of the skin that form a small round dome, which is often flat-topped. The color typically ranges from bright red to purple.  


Brown Spots

Brown Spots are small pigmented spots that occur on the skin and have a clearly defined edge, surrounded by skin that appears normal. They occur in sun-exposed areas appearing on the face, arms, tops of hands, and chest.

Sebaceous Hyperplasia

Sebaceous Hyperplasia is a disorder of the oil glands and is a common, benign condition most commonly found in adults. They are round and the oil surrounds the pore giving it a "donut-like" appearance. Typically these occur on the nose, cheeks, and forehead.   


Seborrheic Keratosis

A seborrheic keratosis is a non-cancerous benign skin growth that originates in keratinocytes. Like liver spots, seborrheic keratosis is seen more often as people age.

Skin Tags

A skin tag is a small benign tumor that primarily forms in areas where the skin creases, such as the neck, armpit, and groin. Sometimes they may also appear on the eyelids or other areas of the face.

 Broken Capillaries

Broken Capillaries are small dilated blood vessels near the surface of the skin. They can develop anywhere on the body but are commonly seen on the face around the nose, cheeks, chin, and chest. They can be caused by environmental damage such as sun or cold exposure and may increase as we age.
