Celiac Disease

Celiac Disease

The skin is the largest organ in our body and can present all kinds of problems – rashes, sunburns, acne, sun spots and more. But if you’ve ever had a certain mark on your skin, you may be sensitive to gluten or even have celiac disease.Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease characterized by an abnormal lining of the small intestine, which improves with a gluten-free diet and recurs when gluten is reintroduced into the diet. A symptom of celiac disease, or gluten sensitivity, is a skin condition called dermatitis herpetiformis (DH).DH is characterized by very itchy bumps or blisters that form rashes on the skin, often near the elbows, knees and buttocks. It is sometimes confused with eczema, but it is actually a reaction to gluten intake. A dermatologist can prescribed topical treatments for short-term relief of itching, but the only way to control DH is to maintain a strict gluten-free diet.


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.
