CEFALY Dual vs New CEFALY Enhanced – What’s the Difference?

Migraines are a painful, recurring headache disorder that affects millions of people every year. Symptoms typically present as a severe throbbing headache with nausea, altered vision and sensitivity to light or sound. While effective medications do exist, they cannot completely stop migraines and can sometimes fail altogether.

This is where non-drug treatments such as migraine relief devices come into play. These specialised devices use new technologies to reduce the intensity of a migraine before it has fully taken over, preventing the full force of its symptoms from appearing in some cases, and making them more tolerable in all others. As such, these treatment devices may offer an invaluable aid for controlling this disabling condition.

Here at CEFALY, we produce a range of effective migraine relief devices. But what is the difference between the old CEFALY Dual and the new CEFALY Enhanced treatment. In this handy guide, we’ll break down the differences for you, and outline how CEFALY Enhanced is a more effective migraine relief device.


The original CEFALY Dual made waves when it first hit the market as an innovative device designed to target migraine pain relief without reliance on medications. Pain relief is achieved through the external trigeminal nerve stimulator by placing an electrode on the forehead between the eyebrows, which then stimulates the trigeminal nerve, a known centre for migraine pain.

This non-invasive approach decreases the duration of headaches while providing a comfortable experience due to its uniquely designed device. For some users, it can provide lasting relief from moderate to severe migraines, but for others there may be limited effects in reducing pain levels and frequency of migraine days. It is important to consult with your medical practitioner before deciding whether this option may be suitable for your circumstances.

CEFALY Dual has now made way for the new CEFALY Enhanced, which we’ll explore a bit below.

New CEFALY Enhanced

With the new CEFALY Enhanced, you can experience the natural evolution of migraine treatment and prevention with this clinically proven device. Design, user experience, and storage have all been improved for a more efficient and reliable tool in your migraine care.

With one device, you get two treatment settings that vary based on the state of your current migraine. The 60-minute acute setting is used at the onset of an attack to stop or reduce pain, while the 20-minute preventative sessions are used daily to lower the frequency and intensity of symptoms.
