Having an expert remove your milia is preferred to self treatment, in order to reduce complications from infection and scarring. Individuals who attempt self treatment may encounter short term unsightly bruising, swelling, and pain, and long term discoloration and scarring.

When milia is removed properly by an expert and experienced dermatologist, it is unlikely to result in any visible scars. It is therefore important to choose the correct physician to remove your milia.

Immediately after the removal, you will notice small, pinpoint redness from the procedure. However, due to the very superficial nature of the procedure, the area usually heals over within a week.
