What homecare/skincare should be used to treat Milia?
Milia should be treated in the clinic in order to remove the little white bumps permanently and safely. Sometimes at home, it may be possible to get rid of small Milia with some very gentle exfoliation. Do not scrub as these may lead to small red veins appearing (thread veins). Place a hot clean wet cloth on your skin for a few minutes. Apply a recommended exfoliator and gently rub in a circular motion, 3 times a week. This may disturb the skin, open the pores and let the dead cells out. As mentioned, the best way to treat and remove Milia safely is in-clinic.
