COLD SORE TREATMENT

At Advanced Aesthetics Dentistry, WE TREAT COLD SORES PAINLESSLY

co2-laser-dentist-schenectadyCold sores are blisters caused by the  Herpes Simplex Virus and this virus hides under the skin waiting to come out at the most inopportune time. The cold sore can be brought on by stress, sickness or even dietary reasons. These cold sores usually appear as a group of small blisters around the mouth and lips and can be uncomfortable and unsightly.

If you do think a cold sore is starting,  you will usually know by a telltale sign such as a tingling sensation in that area. At this first sign of discomfort, you should contact our office and schedule a cold sore laser treatment.

Co2 Laser Treatment Cold Sore Therapy

This is done painlessly and quickly with one of our CO2 lasers. When caught early enough, in the first 24 hours of feeling that sensation, we can utilize the CO2 laser treatments and even prevent the return of the cold sore in that area.

You will notice the relief right away as the laser dries up the cold sore in about 5-7 minutes. A second treatment may be needed but the cold sore itself should continue to dry up and disappear in about 3 days and should not reappear in that area again.

The treatment is quick, the relief is immediate and you will leave our office happy to return to your normal daily routine!
