• The Easy Way to Get Rid of Cold Sores: Laser Treatment

    on Aug 1st, 2017

Laser treatment for cold sores can significantly ease the pain and embarrassment of this outbreak. Cold sores treated with technology generally heal faster than other treatments and if they reappear the severity is much less.

Also called fever blister, cold sores are a viral infection that results with small blisters forming around one’s lips that are filled with fluid. Generally, these sores form in patches. Ultimately the blister breaks and a crust develops. Expect cold sores to last about 2-4 weeks. The good news is they usually do not leave scars.

Stress, poor nutrition, illness, and exposure to sunlight can cause the sores to reappear. Those who have their first cold sore outbreak usually experience symptoms like vomiting, fever, sore throat, and nausea. Laser treatment for cold sores is a pain-free and an effective way to heal these blisters. Lasers disinfect the cold sore and reduce inflammation. The laser treatment also eases the pain that is associated with the blisters. In essence, the laser provides a “bandage” that quickens healing time and dramatically lessens chances of infections.
