Is my molluscum contagiosum still contagious after cryotherapy?

I've had a few treatments before and the affected areas blister and then flake off. I'm just wondering if the freezing itself kills the virus, or if it's the skin's reaction to the trauma which makes the substrate unviable.
The reason I'm asking is that I was treated for all visible areas of infection 1 week ago and I want to know whether I should avoid intimate contact until the areas are completely healed. Or at least, I want to be able to fully inform a parter about the risks. If it makes any difference, the affected areas are the thighs and stomach, not genitals.
