Treating Those Pesky Cold Sores

Cold sores are unsightly blisters that manifest typically on the lips and can take a couple of days to a couple of weeks to fully heal. If you've suffered from them before, chances are you will experience them again as they are caused by a virus. Although there is no cure for the virus itself, the outbreaks can be managed with at-home and over-the-counter treatments. They aim to lower the length of time cold sores take to heal, but for even faster results, consider cold sore laser treatment. We'll explore some of its benefits below, but for much more information please reach out to Dr. Ramyar Elyassian of Dental Implant & Laser Surgical Specialists in Santa Ana/Tustin, CA.

Lasers Make it Better

Although your experience may vary, cold sores are typically triggered by stress, and reducing its influence may be a good first step in preventing them. They also will go away on their own, but if you are not satisfied with letting them run their course for the weeks that this will take then laser therapy is the way to go.

Laser therapy can result in much faster healing than alternative treatments and is especially beneficial if you suffer from recurring breakouts. If there is a specific spot on your lips where cold sores keep appearing and you receive multiple laser treatment sessions on that same area, you can reduce your chances of having them return there, or at least reduce their frequency and size.

You can often even prevent the appearance of a cold sore if you come into the office for a treatment just as you're beginning to feel that telltale tingling sensation that signals the onset of a cold sore.
