One of my front desk workers showed up at the office Monday morning with the beginnings of a Herpes lesion on her lower right corner of her lip. We took a diagnositic photo: I used the Lares Research PowerLase AT with 300 ? fiber Nd:YAG laser at settings 100 ?s, 20 Hz, 2.00 W for 5 minutes without anesthetic. Just used the non-focusing laser beam as close as I could with a waving action so not to heat up the tissue and cause pain. She was also given a supply of AlgalAid® (see description of this below). Immediately post photos: 24 hours post-op photo: No progression of the lesion. The patient said the lesions usually look much bigger than this one. 48 hours post-op photo: Important to note that with this treatment, NO progression of the lesion was seen.
