Molluscum contagiosum

by Dr. Yiannis Neofytou

Molluscum contagiosum is a common viral disease that affects the skin. It affects people of all ages, but mainly affects children from one to 10 years old, sexually active adults and those with weak immune systems. Molluscum contagiosum is usually transmitted through skin contact but also with commonly used items such as clothes, towels, sheets, etc. It can also be transmitted by dirty water and the sand on which we lie in the summer.

The only manifestation of molluscum contagiosum is the characteristic pimples it causes on the skin.

In individuals in whom the infectious terminus persists or spreads, it is necessary to treat the lesion with a special terminal forceps either by cryotherapy of the lesions or by Laser.

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.
