Cold Sore Laser Treatment In Houston, TX

Fever, along with making a person lethargic, can leave you uncomfortable and in pain. One indication is the appearance of cold sores. These are small blisters caused by the herpes virus that become visible on the lips and around the mouth. These sores are spread when a person touches an affected area, kisses a person that is affected, shares eating utensils with an affected person, or shares a razor with an affected person. The sores may disappear on their own within two weeks; however, cold sore laser treatment is effective for rapid action.

Effects of Cold Sores

Even if these appear to be small in size, cold sores are fluid-filled blisters that can be painful and irritating. You may also have cold sore scars once the blisters heal. Before the sores start appearing on the skin, they show various warning signs, and a person who frequently gets the sores can easily identify the symptoms. The following signs may be apparent:

  1. Pain or itching around the lips and mouth
  2. Fever
  3. Sore throat
  4. Swollen glands around the neck

It is to be remembered that if you are affected once with the herpes virus, it remains in the body and will keep appearing time and again. Unfortunately, this means you will need to learn how to live with the virus. However, treatment can reduce the number of cold sores and their effects.

Treatment Of Cold Sores In Houston

When fever blisters pop, sores may open and leak the fluid. After a day or two, a crust appears, which disappears within two weeks once healed. However, many people feel conscious of their looks with sores and may think of getting rid of them as soon as possible. Over the counter medicines are available to help ease pain; however, the medicines may act very slowly. For quick action and effective results, cold sore laser treatment is a valid choice. The experts at Pearl Shine Dental in Houston, Tx treat cold sores tactfully to the extent that you may not be able to identify the affected area after the treatment.

You may feel a tingling sensation, along with pain, before sores start to appear. It is best to book an appointment with us for laser treatment as soon as you feel the warning signs of sores so that the outbreak can be stopped. However, even if sores have grown fully, you do not need to worry as we can still treat the blisters effectively. Our laser treatment will give you instant relief and help to heal the blisters quickly.

Benefits of Laser Treatment

A person would normally get sores on the same spots every time. You may opt for various injections for treating cold sores, but those are less effective. With multiple laser treatments, it is quite likely that the sores would stop appearing on the same spots.

Some of the other benefits that our cold sore laser treatment in Houston, Tx, provides are as follows:

  • Latest and affordable treatment
  • Destroys the virus
  • Relieves immediately from the pain and irritation

Cold Sore Laser Treatment FAQs

Does The Laser Work On Cold Sores?

In essence, the laser kills the virus that causes sores. If the cold sores are yet to break, killing the virus will prevent their appearance. In case the cold sores are present, laser treatment accelerates the healing process, saving you from discomfort.

Can You Permanently Cure Cold Sores?

No, you can’t. There isn’t a treatment that can permanently kill the virus that is responsible for cold sores. However, certain treatments such as antiviral medications and laser treatments can alleviate the symptoms. 

How Can I Quickly Cure A Cold Sore?

Medications and home remedies can help get rid of cold sores faster. Applying an ice pack or tea tree oil can significantly reduce swelling and speed up the healing process. 

How Much Does Cold Sore Laser Treatment Cost?

The average cost of laser treatment for cold sores can be around $350-$500, depending on the severity of the patient’s cold sores, age, and geographical location. It is always advised to have a detailed discussion with your doctor, about the expenses, before the treatment. 

Can You Get Rid Of A Cold Sore Overnight?

This is not possible. There are ways to quickly heal cold sores and get relief from the pain and discomfort. However, treating cold sores in 24 hours can not happen. Oral and topical antiviral medications, pain relievers, and home remedies can make you feel better. 

What Vitamin Deficiency Causes Cold Sores?

The deficiency of vitamin B can cause cold sores to occur. Vitamin B promotes a healthy immune system that fights cold sores. Reduced levels of vitamin B can make your body prone to cold sore outbreaks.
