Milia

Since the birth of my now one year old daughter I've been noticing what looks like white heads popping up under my eyes. After some research I now realize they are Milia.

Can someone tell me how to get rid of this? It's not terribly noticeable but I'm really self conscious about it. From what I've read it has to be lanced and excreted. Is it safe to do myself as long as I take care to sterilize the instrument and disinfect the skin before and afterward? I don't think my health insurance will cover it as it is cosmetic.
