Laser therapy has become an increasingly popular treatment option for shingles, as it offers a non-invasive and drug-free approach to pain relief and healing. The therapy uses low-level laser energy to stimulate the body's natural healing processes and reduce inflammation in the affected area.
A low-level laser device is applied directly to the affected area during a laser therapy session. The laser energy penetrates the skin and reaches the underlying tissues, stimulating the cells to produce more energy and promote healing. This results in reduced pain, inflammation, and itching and faster healing of the shingles rash.
Laser therapy is a safe and effective treatment option for those with shingles, and it can be used in conjunction with other treatments, such as antiviral medications and painkillers. If you are experiencing shingles symptoms, talk to your healthcare provider to see if laser therapy may be right for you.
