Milia and Freckle Removal

MILIA – How to get rid of this resistant blemish

Milia is the technical term for small, hard, pearly white to yellowish bumps that can show up—mostly on the face—in just about anyone, including infants, teens, and adults. These are actually tiny cysts about 1-2 mm in size and arise from the sebaceous glands of the skin. The exact cause of this pretty common condition is not clearly known. The primary Milia occurring in infants only are considered normal and resolve spontaneously. However, the secondary variety which has certain pathological reason tends to persist. These frustrating yet benign bumps are incredibly stubborn, lasting for  months and sometimes longer.


  • No topical product or treatment is really effective to resolve this condition; they can be left alone safely. They may persist for longer period of time and pose a significant cosmetic concern in majority of people. There are certain options to deal with this resistant problem if someone requests for.
  • Usually Milia occur in crops and are very difficult to handle with orthodox measures such as manual expression or surgical excision.
  •  YAG Laser remains the ultimate solution and is a very effective modality to erase Milia.

At Corneum Lasers, we have very good experience treating Milia with ND: YAG Laser. Even after the first treatment a noticeable change can be observed, however, 4-6 treatments are sometimes required to resolve the condition and to get the optimum results. It is absolutely safe, painless, noninvasive and comfortable technique. There is no downtime; you may resume your day activities soon after the procedure.
