Cold sores are groups of small blisters on the lip and around the mouth. They are often painful and last sometime before they go away. We provide laser treatment for our patients to minimize their discomfort, healing time, and eliminate the need for topical or prescription drugs. The best part of the treatment is that we can usually arrange your laser treatment as soon as you get it, and your insurance may cover the treatment depending on your coverage. The treatment is virtually painless and there is no need for injections. A small amount of laser energy is directed through a tiny fiber towards the problem area. The laser energy treats the sore, allowing the body to recover faster. As opposed to conventional treatment, prescription medications can be avoided, minimizing any potential side effects, or harmful drug interactions.
