What is a Professional Milia Extraction in Rochester?
It is extremely important to NEVER squeeze or try to cut out milia at home. You run the risk of seriously damaging your skin, along with developing an infection or permanent scarring. The best and most effective way to remove these unsightly cysts is with professional milia extraction in Rochester. Using a sterile needle, we open the top of the skin and the top of the milia. Then through gentle pressure, we can pop the capsule out without damaging the skin. You will experience a small, dot-like scab that will heal in a few days and leave behind smooth, clear skin.
Cleanse + Prep Skin
First, we thoroughly cleanse the treatment area(s) to sterilize and prep skin for the extraction. We can also apply a topical numbing cream if desired to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.
Opening Skin & Milia
Next, we use a 30-gauge needle to carefully and precisely open the skin above the milia and nick the top of the cyst.
Once the cyst is exposed, we apply gentle pressure to the surrounding skin to coax the capsule out and to push out the contents.
Once the milia is freed from the skin, the patient may notice a small, dot-shaped scab. This can easily be covered with makeup and will heal in a few days. After, the skin will be smooth & clear.
