Milia and editing the milia

In my work Photoshop is a very important thing. We all want beautiful photos when it comes to professional photography. Especially when it comes to newborn babies 🙂

Newborns often have little white dots on their face. It’s nothing bad or wrong with it. These dots are called milia. They appear on baby’s nose, chin or cheeks. They develop when tiny skin flakes become trapped in small pockets near the surface of the skin. But they should disappear in 3 months or so. (If no, please contact your doctor for a consultation.) Milia doesn’t bring any discomfort like itchiness, pain and so on. And you don’t have to do nothing. Just wipe your baby’s face with warm water once a day, but that’s not necessary.

Above you can see an example of how I removed some milia from baby’s nose. Each little dot is removed separately. In general it takes about 40-60 minutes to edit one newborn image.
