How to treat small, hard, raised white bumps on face

I am a 46 yr old female and currently live in PA.
I have had fewer of these little bumps on my face, but have seen an increse over the years. What are they and how do I treat them? (or can I?) They are not necessarily area specific, but seem to mostly be under the eyes and in the cheek area's.
Thank you

Hello,
From the symptoms the possibility of milia need to be ruled out. They are white pimples that occur mostly on the upper cheeks, nose and chin. The best way to prevent milia is to avoid treating your skin with excessively harsh chemicals and to limit sun exposure. Also use good quality cosmetics and exfoliate your skin regularly. If still the symptoms persist then chemical peeling or laser removal can be done.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and regards.
