  • What are cold sores?

    Cold sores, also known as herpetic lesions, are small blisters that appear on the lip and around the mouth. They are caused by a herpes simplex (HSV-1) infection. Cold sore breakouts are a common occurrence that affects an estimated 67% of the global population. While there is no cure for HSV-1, healing time can be improved through laser treatment.

  • What treatments do you offer for cold sores?

    We offer a range of treatments for cold sores, including antiviral medications, laser therapy, and preventative strategies to minimize outbreaks. Each treatment is tailored to the severity of the outbreak and the individual needs of the patient.

  • How quickly can I expect relief from my symptoms?

    Many patients experience relief from pain and discomfort immediately after treatment, with the cold sores beginning to heal within a few days. The effectiveness of the treatment can depend on the timing, so early intervention is encouraged.

  • Are there ways to prevent future cold sore outbreaks?

    Yes, we provide advice and treatment plans that can help reduce the frequency of cold sore outbreaks. Preventative strategies may include antiviral medications, lifestyle changes, and identifying triggers that cause outbreaks.
