In brief: Dermatologist

Try using gentle exfoliation products.
Avoid harsh skin-care products. Sometimes they go away on their own. A dermatologist can remove them using a scalpel or curette, but this is time-consuming and expensive. Milia are not harmful, but they are a cosmetic nuisance.

In brief: Depends at what age

In newborn it's normal, no treatment required, in adults - probably laser.
But i would ask dermatologist or a plastic surgeons for sure.
