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.
