Cold sores are groups of small, often painful, blisters on the lips and around the mouth.
We provide laser treatment for our patients to minimize their discomfort, healing time, and eliminate the need for topical or prescription drugs. We can usually accommodate seeing you for laser therapy treatment of your cold sore as soon as you notice a sore developing, 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.
