Cold Sore & Canker Sore Treatment

Cold sores and canker sores can be uncomfortable and bothersome. Cold sores typically appear in response to trauma or increased physical or psychological stress levels. Once you feel the tingling sensation, a full-blown sore is likely to develop, and the healing process can take up to two weeks, impacting your quality of life. Therefore, it is crucial to begin laser treatment before the sore fully develops to prevent it from breaking out.

Laser therapy offers several benefits in treating cold sores and canker sores:

Photonic Laser Energy: The laser destroys the virus responsible for the sore.
Prevent Outbreak: Treating the lip with laser therapy when the tingling starts can prevent the sore from developing further, avoiding a full outbreak.
Speedy Healing: If the sore has already broken out, laser treatment can help the lip return to normal more quickly and keep it comfortable during the healing process.
Quick Treatment: Each laser treatment takes only a few minutes, making it a convenient option.
Promotes Healing: The laser’s light energy stimulates healing through gentle “photo-bio stimulation” deep within the lip.
Reduced Recurrence: After treatment, sores tend to recur with less frequency.
Comfortable Procedure: Laser treatment of cold sores is virtually painless, providing comfort during and after the procedure.
By using laser therapy for cold sores and canker sores, you can effectively manage and alleviate the discomfort and inconvenience associated with these conditions. Early intervention with laser treatment can prevent cold sores from fully developing, and even if a sore has broken out, laser therapy can speed up the healing process and reduce recurrence rates.
