How Cold Sore Laser Treatment Works
Type 1- The Canker Sore
The laser makes the virus vanish in the area that it’s located in, preventing further outbreaks
Type 2: Cold sore or fever blisters
These are outside or on the mouth, are red in color and are contagious.
Cold sores can be a regular nuisance for you. There isn’t an actual cure for them but there is a solution to managing and reducing the symptoms and frequency. They are called fever blisters as well. They pop up around the lip/mouth area and look swollen and irritated. In the case of cold sores, the timing of the treatment makes a difference in the outcome. The virus resides in the nerve endings. The most effective time for treatment is during the first 24-48 hours of the symptoms, usually noticeable by the “tingling sensation”. In the majority of cases, treatment at this time prevents the virus from continuing to duplicate. In many cases the lesion NEVER recurs in this site!
