Cold Sores

How Are Laser Used to Treat Cold Sores and Canker Sores?

Cold sores can be uncomfortable, inconvenient and unsightly. They generally break out in response to trauma, or when physical or psychological stress levels spike. Once you experience the tell-tale tingling, it is only a matter of time before a full-blown sore appears. The healing can take up to two weeks. It is critical to begin laser treatment before the sore has a chance to develop. Catch it in time with laser treatment and the sore will not break out.


Laser treatment is very effective on apthous ulcers (canker sores) for the same reasons. The stinging sensation is eliminated in seconds and healing is rapid and uneventful.

Laser treatment is state-of-the-art technology. Treatment is accomplished very quickly and comfortably, without the need for anesthetic. In fact the only sensation that may be experienced is a warm sensation on your lip. After just a few minutes you can be on your way out the door!
