What is the best treatment to remove milia seeds under the eye?

Doctor's Answers (1)

Early SUPERFICIAL milia can be removed by tropical tretinoin creams and chemical peels. Deep milia seeds are removed by

  1. Ablative laser eg CO2 lasers
  2. Incision and expression
  3. Cautery

Yes it’s very important to PREVENT recurrence, especially if you are prone to having milia seeds. Products causing milia seeds include sunscreen and makeup; basically anything that CLOGS up your pores.

Hence its good to remove your makeup and sunscreen well by “double washing” your face. This means:

STEP 1: Using a cleansing oil to remove make-up and sunscreen

STEP 2: Foam cleanser that is suitable for your skin type
