The most common type of milia removal is performed using a needle. Once the skin with milia has been cleaned, a sterile needle is then used to create a tiny incision in the skin covering the cyst. The contents of the milia are then carefully extracted so as not to cause any trauma to the skin.
Some types of milia may be more suitable for removal using a Hyfrecator. A Hyfrecator uses tiny electrical pulses to cauterize the skin covering the milia, allowing the contents to then be extracted.
In other cases, you may be prescribed a topical medication to treat the milia, but this is only for certain types of milia.
The best treatment for you will depend upon the type of milia you have as well as the location and number of milia that need removing. This will be determined at your skin consultation which is needed to start the process.
