CEFALY Electrodes

Apply the patented self-adhesive electrode to your forehead, then attach your CEFALY device to the electrode, delivering tiny impulses into the nerve center where your migraine headaches start, reducing or eliminating migraine pain.

Each electrode package contains three reusable electrodes and hypoallergenic electrodes are available if you have sensitive skin or known allergies to acrylates. Find replacement electrodes that fit your CEFALY device below.

Frequently Asked Questions About CEFALY Electrodes

How often do I need to purchase electrodes?

With proper care, both Standard and Hypoallergenic Electrodes can be reused as long as the electrode adheres well on the skin on the forehead. The number of uses will vary based on care and type of electrode used (standard typically provides more uses than hypoallergenic). To simplify future orders, you can join the Electrodes Subscription Program and save 5% plus receive free shipping. You will automatically receive a 3-pack electrode kit at the frequency of your choice every 30, 60 or 90 days, and can change figure shipment dates or cancel your subscription any time in your account settings.

Tip from other users: 

Do not leave the electrode exposed and unpackaged, especially in a dry place. It will dehydrate and will no longer function as designed. If cared for properly, a few drops of tap water on the electrode can gently rehydrate it and help prolong its usage.

What are best practices for getting the most use out of each electrode?

Proper care of your CEFALY Electrodes is key to maximizing the number of treatments each can help perform. Follow these guidelines:

  • Because our fingers have natural oils that reduce the effectiveness of the gel pad, we suggest holding Electrode pads by the edge.

  • Be sure you’re thoroughly washing and drying your forehead before each treatment session. Use basic soap, avoiding alcohol wipes and facial cleansers.

  • During active treatment, avoid excessive movement if possible.

  • When you remove an Electrode after a treatment, immediately replace it on the plastic backing, adhesive side down. Then seal it in the Resealable Electrode Bag.

How to Use CEFALY

Step 1 illustration - woman cleaning her forehead

1 Cleanse Your Skin

It’s important to cleanse your skin before every CEFALY treatment session. This will help ensure the electrode attached securely to your forehead.

  • Use soap and water to wash between and above your eyebrows. Afterward, be sure to dry your skin thoroughly.
  • The use of make-up removing products is NOT recommended as a substitute for soap and water.

3 Position the Electrode

Use a mirror to place the Electrode so the curved area is in between your eyebrows and the wings are just above your eyebrows. Firmly run your fingers over the Electrode a few times until it lays flat against your skin.

4 Connect Your Device & Treat

On the back of your CEFALY DUAL Enhanced, you’ll find two small magnetic contacts, designed to securely attach to the Electrode (the contact in the center connects to the charging dock). Hold your device so these magnets are exposed and bring it toward your forehead. You’ll feel the device pulling itself toward the Electrode.

Once your device is securely attached to the Electrode on your forehead, you’re ready to select either the ACUTE program or the PREVENT program.

You control your CEFALY treatment intensity. It should never be painful and treating your migraine at a lower intensity is effective and perfectly normal. For some, CEFALY is immediately effective. For others, it may take weeks for your treatment sessions to produce the results you’re seeking.
