    Well it does help to exfoliate the skin and open up the milia,but it doesn't cure pre-existing milia but prevent formation of new milia.If you want the permanent cure surgical incision is the better option.

    All the reasearch I have read states that milia eventually go away once the top layers of skin are shed away (milia are basically deposits caught in the layers of skin- not pimples or whiteheads) so I would think anythign that promotes exfoliation would help reduce the milia.
