If you answered yes to any of the questions above Cefaly may be the answer for you.
The Cefaly is a user friendly tens device. An electrode placed on the forehead between the eyebrows interacts with the Cefaly device to produce electrical stimulation that anesthetises the trigeminal nerve.
FDA and TGA approved to decrease migraine frequency by up to 70% when used daily. That's a similar effectiveness as medications, without all the side effects.
*See below for full side effect and contraindication profile.
The Cefaly has 3 x 20 minute programs aimed at 1. acute migraine resolution 2. prevention of migraine frequency 3. stress release, improved sleep, improved mood and well being. The Cefaly is specifically approved by the FDA for its success in migraine prevention especially.
Neurostimulation has been used for more than 20 years with devices that are implanted in the head and which work constantly for several years. The only problems encountered with implantable neurostimulators relate to the surgical procedure involved to implant them, and never to the neurostimulation technique itself. This is why this technique is regarded as exceptionally safe. Cefaly's great breakthrough is to allow this technique of neurostimulation to be used in an external and gentle manner.
The Cefaly runs on 2 easily replaceable AA batteries. Make sure the latch is closed AND switched up after replacement. This is a very common oversight. The 3 pack of electrodes can last up to 2 months if stored carefully.
Cefaly, like all migraine solutions, doesn't work for everyone. However if Cefaly is the right solution for you, the results can be life changing.
