Hello there, I have recently developed the little white spots under my eyes. They give my under eye are a more rough and tired look. Upon closer inspection, it appears to look like "chicken skin", or tiny little clogged (maybe sebum) pores. The skin is thinner under my eyes and is more sensitive naturally. I did go see a dermatologist at kaiser permanente. He looked at me and said, Oh its going to get worse as you get older, those are just clogged pores under the skin, there is nothing we can do. He then looked at his p.a. he was sitting next to and said, maybe retin-a, nah, that probably won't be good. Lets put you on spironolactone for acne maybe that will help with it. Well the spironolactone has been great for the acne but it has helped the chicken skin minimally if at all. He admitted he didn't know much about cosmetic dermatology because he doesnt work with it or pay much attention to it. Is there a laser or something to unblock these? I asked him if it was milla, he said no. I don't understand why all of a sudden. It dpoes really look bad closer up. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
