Does Microdermabrasion Work to Remove Milia?

Does microdermabrasion work on asian skin or leave marks and does it remove milia?

Manual removal is most effective treatment for milia

The most effective way to get rid of milia is to cut the overlying skin with a sterile needle or blade and then express the contents.  TIn our practice, we will throw in a few "extractions" as part of the standard microdermabrasion protocol.  This procedure will not prevent new milia from forming however.
