The key to your CEFALY migraine treatment is a patented self-adhesive electrode that is applied to your forehead. The CEFALY device attaches 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.

How often do I need to purchase electrodes?
With proper care, one Standard Electrode can be reused for up to 20 sessions (up to 10 sessions for Hypoallergenic Electrodes). Immediately before applying the electrode, the skin on the forehead should always be cleansed and degreased thoroughly with plain soap and water. As long as the electrode adheres well to the skin on the forehead, it can be used. Once the session ends, the electrode should be adhered back onto its clear plastic sheet and stored inside a resealable bag.
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.
How to Use CEFALY
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.
2 Open The Electrode
Open the electrode packet and slide out the plastic sleeve, then peel off the electrode.
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.
