LONG-TERM DATA More than 20 years of experience

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.

Cefaly Use

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.
