I have several milia seeds around my eye area and I have gone to a laser clinic to get them removed whilst i was in korea as it was significantly cheaper than what was quoted to me by my doctor from an aesthetics clinic here (approx $400~) The korean doctor did inform me about the chances of the milia seed recurring but i went ahead with the laser. Unfortunately, all of the milia seeds did grow back at the same spot. I was wondering if there are anything that i can apply topically to dry out the milia seeds or if there are any procedures/lasers that I could undergo that would remove the seeds permanently (if yes, what are the costs like?) Thank you 🙂

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (2)

Dear ilovetoffeenutfrappe,

Milia seeds are harmless, tiny pearly-white bumps made up of skin protein.

Topical treatment include retinoids, such as Differin creams.

Chemical peels or ablative laser eg. CO2 laser and dermabrasion are effective for stubborn and extensive milia.

The cost of these treatments ($200 – $400) varies amongst clinics, and how extensive the milia seeds are.

Other treatments also include:

  1. De-roofing with sterile needle and extraction
  2. Destroying the milia seeds with diathermy or cryotherapy

Lastly, some ways to prevent milia seeds from recurring include:

  1. Good facial cleansing, especially after long hours of make-up/sunscreen
  2. Ideal facial products for your skin
  3. Chemical peels

Hi ilovetoffeenutfrappe,

Milia are harmless cysts filled with skin cells, and can (unfortunately) recur even after treatment.

Treatments include:

  1. Manual extraction
  2. Laser
  3. Electrocautery
  4. Topical retinoids

Hope that helps. All the best!
