Laser Cold Sore Treatment
Herpetic lesions, better known as cold sores or fever blisters, are caused by the herpes simplex virus. They manifest as small blisters that appear on the lip or around the mouth and can be spread to others via touching, kissing, or coming into contact with infected fluid through shared utensils or razors. Symptoms include a tingling sensation, itching or pain around the affected area, and some people report fever, a sore throat, or swollen glands. It has been estimated that as many as 90% of adults have been exposed to the HSV-1 virus, many of whom experience pain, discomfort, or self-consciousness as a result.
Southbrook Dental Group offers laser cold sore treatment in our South Edmonton office that can prevent the cold sore from breaking out, if the lesion is caught in time. Schedule an appointment as soon as you start to feel that tingling sensation that warns you that an outbreak is imminent. Even if the sore is fully formed laser treatment will alleviate discomfort and help dry the sore, and speed up the healing process.
Laser cold sore treatment is safe, effective and affordable, and provides immediate relief. It arrests the progression of the lesion after treatment and promotes faster healing. Treatment takes just a few minutes and does not require anaesthesia.
