Molluscom Contagiosum Removal

We offer an effective laser-based treatment for various skin lesions, including Poxvirus or Molluscum Contagiosum virus infection.

What is Molluscom Contagiosum?

Molluscum contagiosum is basically an epidermal skin infection caused by a virus, which is known as molluscum contagiosum or poxvirus. This virus produces benign lesions, or bumps, on the superficial layers of the infected person’s skin.

They usually appear on the neck, face, armpits, arms, and surface of children’s hands or even genital areas between 2 to 8 weeks after viral infection.

Signs and Symptoms:

  • Bumps and lesions
  • Erythema or redness
  • Itchiness
  • Inflammation
  • Pus formation

The transmission of Molluscum Contagiosum virus occurs quickly through contact with contaminated objects, skin-to-skin contact and sexual transmission (sexual contact with an affected partner)

Note: The Poxvirus or Molluscum Contagiosum virus remains in the superficial layer of the epidermis. This virus does not spread through coughing or sneezing.

Treatment for Molluscum Contagiosum

⦁ Topical therapy

⦁ Cryotherapy

⦁ Laser therapy

⦁ Curettage

At Renew Skin and Health Clinic, there is an effective laser-based treatment for various skin lesions, including Molluscum Contagiosum infection.

We can treat children (over 10 years of age) with PDL (Pulsed dye laser) therapy. In contrast, CO2 laser therapy is generally preferred for adults. In these methods, the lesion is removed effectively with a laser having minimal side effects.

We charge just £600 to treat up to 20 lesions or spots. Please be aware that there will be consultation fee of £100 to pay to see our doctor. A free follow up review is required at the end of 30 days

Treatment is generally not required as most spots or lesions vanish by itself by 12- 18 months. For someone who is an adult and has very extensive lesions of MC, we advise them to attend their local GU clinic to exclude an underlying HIV infection.

Client Reviews

Very honest, prompt and professional service. Within a few minutes of enquiring I was invited to speak to Dr Jha directly on the phone. He was very open and honest about my condition and I felt at all times like he had my best interests as a patient at heart. Not only was he incredibly medically experienced, but he was very transparent and did not try to upsell or give me any false reassurances.I would 100% recommend this clinic to anyone unsure or enquiring about treatment, seeking an honest, well accredited and medically professional service.

I have absolutely nothing but great things to say about this establishment. I’m from *Canada and I received a free online consultation with Dr Jha regarding the normality or abnormality of what I was worried may have been an infection. After taking a look at the photos Dr Jha reassured me of the normalcy of the condition and it’s benign nature. It took a huge weight off my shoulders and I was able to feel comfortable with my body again. He responded within minutes of my inquiry and answered all my questions in both a timely, professional, and most importantly *reassuring manor. I’m so grateful to Doctor Jha and his knowledge and experience for helping me through a stressful period in my life. I have nothing but good things to say. They absolutely deserve all the positive ratings they receive and many more. FIVE STARS. HANDS DOWN. 🙂

Fantastic experience at Renew! Treatment and follow up appointments by Dr. Jha were professional and the staff are very friendly! My treatment was during covid pandemic and I could not fault the extra steps taken to ensure everything was safe and sterile. Excellent aftercare too! Really pleased with the work I had done, given me a huge confidence boost and I would definitely recommend them!
