No one likes to get cold sores, also known as Herpes simplex I, on their lips. At LI Center for Healthier Dentistry, cold sores can be successfully treated with lasers. We have three different lasers able to treat Herpes lip infections. Lasers, in addition to topical creams and systemic medication, help reduce the duration and size of lip infections.
For the best results, treatment must be initiated as soon as the lip vesicles arise and the lip feels “itchy”. Once the infection had reached the “crusty” stage, it is already too late. Keep the area moisturized with lip balm, coconut oil, or vitamin E oil, and contact LI Center for Healthier Dentistry right away.
