by Dr. Yiannis Neofytou

In the case below, a keratoacanthoma is observed on the upper limbs which within 10 days has tripled in size. The treatment for keratoacanthoma are Surgical removal and cryotherapy.

We choose cryotherapy because is the most painless treatment for the patient. Cryotherapy uses liquid nitrogen. When liquid nitrogen is between -175 and -160 degrees Celsius, it instantly freezes almost anything it comes in contact with. In the case of human tissue, it can kill and destroy cells on contact. This is important when the cells are cancerous. It is usually used for external skin tumors.

Mesopen is an alternative form of mesotherapy. It helps the penetration of active substances, creating portals of entry into the skin barrier with the creation of controlled micronulls, thanks to its specially designed head (pen with 12 tiny titanium pins), without obvious skin injury. Through this mechanism of action, the penetration capacity of the active substances increases.
