How to use Cefaly?
More than 95% of users find Cefaly very easy to use.
Just press one button and the session starts automatically.
In practice, a Cefaly session involves 6 stages:
Cleansing the skin
Carefully cleanse the skin on the forehead using a “Prepare” cleansing wipe or soap and water. This step is essential for degreasing the skin and ensuring that the electrode will effectively stick to the skin.
Positioning the electrode
Use a mirror to help you place the electrode on your forehead correctly. The narrowest part of the electrode should point down towards your nose. The lower, curved edge should be placed just above the top of the eyebrows.
Hold the device and bring the rear side of the device with the two magnets against the central part of the electrode. The device is attracted by the two contact zones of the electrode and gets automatically into position.
Press the button to start the session. A single press starts programme 1 (crisis treatment): you will hear one beep.
Two presses, one after the other, starts programme 2 (prevention): you will hear two beeps.
Three presses, one after the other, starts programme 3 (antistress): you will hear three beeps.
Adjusting the intensity
The intensity and the tingling will increase. If it becomes a little too much, press the button again to stabilize the intensity. It will not increase again over the 20 minutes of treatment. But you should make progress wherever possible!
As you repeat your Cefaly sessions, your tolerance of the intensity will increase. You will constantly increase the intensity and the sessions will become more and more effective.
Duration and ending the session
During the twenty-minute Cefaly session, relax or carry out your normal activities.
The session ends after twenty minutes and the device automatically switches off. Remove the device by pulling it forwards.
