Should I go ahead with radiotherapy for milia or not ?

Hi , I have milia (3-5) on my face . I consulted deramtologist for this and as per the instruction , applied the topical gel(Adaferin) and avoided sun exposure. This helped as the new milia have now stopped to occur. My doc suggests to go for radiotherapy to extract the left overs. Please suggest whether to go ahead with radiotherapy or not.

Dermatologist 's  Response
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,

If your dermatologist is sure that it is milia ,then you do need a radiotherapy for that.We see milia almost every day and do extract them .The extraction of milia just requires a 26G needle and an comedome extracter.It come out easily with out any residual marks.And it is not costly atall.
So I would advise you to take a second opinion too or ask your dermatologist for an extraction only.
