Zap Unsightly Cold Sores With Laser Therapy

woman covering mouthCold sores are bothersome and often painful clusters of blisters caused by the virus herpes simplex. Over time, the blisters ulcerate and spread to the skin surrounding the mouth and become covered with a crust or scab. An itching, burning or tingling sensation is typically the first sign that you have a cold sore.

These lesions occur on a regular basis and show up rather quickly. Some triggers include sunlight exposure, trauma to the area, stress, or a suppressed immune system. The inflamed stages of the sore are when it is contagious. Typically they heal within 7-10 days.

Experience Fast Healing and More

If you’d like to get rid of your cold sore quickly, we provide the MVP-7 laser system to encourage fast healing and to immediately stop any discomfort. Here are some other benefits:

  • Laser energy constrains the virus that causes the sore
  • Relief is instant and profound
  • Halts the progression of the sore
  • No anaesthesia is required
  • After treatment, some sores will return but with less intensity and frequency at the same spot

Effective in Treating Mouth Ulcers

Though they’re often small, ulcers can be a big pain in the mouth. These ulcers typically have a white or yellow center with a red border and can appear on the inside of the lips or cheeks, on or underneath the tongue, and on the back of the throat. They are commonly linked to physical or emotional stress and usually come back in multiple areas. If you do nothing, they typically heal within two weeks. The use of our new laser speeds up healing time and reduces pain throughout the healing process.

A Pain-Free Treatment Process

The laser treatment of cold and mouth ulcers is pain-free. The laser heats the sore or ulcer to inhibit the virus, accelerating your body’s healing mechanisms. To control the heat, the tip of the laser is kept several millimeters away from the tissue. Your skin won’t be touched throughout the process. The time that it takes for the ulcer to heal is shorter in comparison to no treatment. Treatment time is brief (about 10 minutes).
