Oil seeds..

85 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I thought of starting this topic as I came across fluene's reply on the topic on dark circles on our eyes. I have a few oil seeds and one is just so prominent I wish I can get rid of it. Do any of you have oil seeds? If you do, did you try to get rid of it? With what? Do share! smile.gif

Perhaps you should see a dr. I've been to beautician before and they told me nothing can be done about the oil seeds except to massage the eye areas which might help a bit. But no guarantee. Then I went to see a dr and he gave me cream to apply. He told me to go back and see him again if the oilseeds do not get away in one month time after applying the cream day and night everyday. The dr. said if the oilseeds do not go away, he'll have to poke it with a needle and also do a blood test. Reason is that eye lid cancer always starts with oil seeds. Scary!

Reiko Soo is a beautician. The oilseeds that were being refered to in the articles are those on the face, not the one around eyes. Just imagine someone holding a needle at near your eyes. Must feel very scary. So I think I will only go to a dr for that.

I went to a general practitioner. He is quite experienced as a dr. I think there is no need to go to a specialist unless there is complication and the GP recommend that you see one.

I started to use Dermalogica was around 19 yr old. After used Dermalogica Total eye care SPF15, I started to have oil seed around my eyes. I told my beautician, she ask me to continue use it. She said later oil seed will reduce. :shakehead: ME also stupid stupid follow what she said, oil seed getting more and more around my eyes :doh: so I end up went to see doctor. Doctor did laser for me cost around RM800+. Doctor said some oil seed did not come out to the surface so can not be laser its. Now I'm 25 still have the small small oil seed around my eyes. :( I'm so sad about it. Can not cure :crybaby:

fluene: What cream that the doctor gave, can buy it at pharmacy?

I don't know what is the name of the cream. Most creams in clinics do not have a brand name, just the name of the active substance. They just scoop it out from the big jar when a patient is being prescribed with it. I guess you have to see a dr.

oh dear, serene, so sorry to hear that. :unsure: i think different skin will react differently to each cosmectics product. i hope you will find the suitable product to cure your oil seeds soon. mine is not entirely gone, it's just getting small only. anyone who have products that can cure oil seeds successfully please share with us ok? :praisegod: using products are cheaper to surgery i hope :wub:

Yumiko, Sorry for late reply. Did not notice there's a question for me. The clinic is Poliklinik Lourdes in PJ State. I do not have any oilseeds after applied the cream.

sanloong, oilseeds at the eye brow or upper eyelids are caused by cholesterol. Other than that, it is caused by wrong usage of products. Say, you have oilseeds undereye, that is caused by your moisturiser or eye cream, not cholesterol

clve, drier environment will cause the skin to be dehydrated and also produce less sebum (oil). Hence, you get wrinkle. On the other hand, since your face is not producing much oil, then you won't get oilseeds

Aiyo...milia seeds no need to look for Doctor or Reiko Soo one. BTW I've ask some beauticians to do the extract for me but none dares to as its too near the eye.

So, I had no choice but to do the extraction on my own. All you need is to make sure your needle is clean and sterilized then make an opening where the milia seed is then, squeeze with your fingers as how you would in popping pimples and in no time its all done. Very painful i must warn but free :P

BTW, if you ladies uses oil based make up remover, after removing your make-up please do your face cleansing immediately to avoid these. Plus look for Rayanne, another member here, who sells cellique (not sure if spell is correct) and ask her for milia seed remover cream.

All ze best
