What Are Cold Sores?
Cold sores are blisters on the lips near the mouth. The blisters are usually swollen, inflamed, and red and can be uncomfortable. The lesions can appear independently or in little clusters, and when they break, a transparent fluid leaks out and the blister will scab over. Cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus, also called HSV, and may appear in or around the mouth. The condition is highly infectious and can be transmitted quite easily by touch. Our team can diagnose and treat cold sores with minimally invasive laser treatments. Schedule an appointment with our Las Vegas, NV office today if you need relief.
What Can I Expect During A Cold Sore Treatment?
Cold sores typically go away on their own within a few days. However, if they are noticeable on the lip or close to the mouth, it can be painful and embarrassing. Our team at Elegant Smiles can help speed up the healing process through advanced laser treatment. The laser goes straight to the cause of the problem, targeting the virus. If caught before the blister stage, laser treatment can accelerate healing without harming surrounding tissue or coming in contact with your skin. This type of therapy is ideal for those who frequently suffer from cold sores. For immediate relief, contact our team at Elegant Smiles in Las Vegas, NV to maintain your oral health.
