Dermaplaning: The Best Way to Remove Milia

Milia are small, round, hard balls that can form under the skin, and they can be difficult to remove. Fortunately, there is a safe and effective way to get rid of them: Dermaplaning. This procedure is a form of exfoliation that removes dead skin cells and buildup on the surface of the skin. It can help reduce milia, even out skin tone, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and help with small breakouts of acne associated with clogged pores.

Dermaplaning is suitable for most people, including those with medical conditions that prevent them from using other facial peels or who are pregnant. It is also beneficial for those with an excessive amount of “peach fuzz”. Hollywood stars such as Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor trusted Dermaplaning to give their skin a radiant, glowing look. The procedure is safe and has no reported adverse reactions.

It removes dead skin cells and causes the skin to produce new collagen and elastin. It also allows skin care products to penetrate better and deeper into the dermis. Experts suggest that you should undergo Dermaplaning every two to three weeks in order to remove about two to three weeks of skin debris in each session. This will help keep your skin clean and fresh and prevent milia from coming back.

In addition to Dermaplaning, there are other less invasive but less immediate methods for removing milia. You can try an oatmeal scrub, a steam bath, or apply honey, castor oil, or apple cider vinegar to the bumps of the milia. These home remedies will probably work instantly but with continued use, they can reduce or prevent milia from forming.
