Darsonval Violet Ray
I am pleased to bring you a custom Darsonval Violet Ray, high frequency with 5 electrodes and instructions for use. This is a device that I believe in and have used for quite some time. Invented some time ago, the idea was that an electric current would stimulate blood flow and circulation. There have been no FDA clinical trials for the Violet Ray to prove of its benefits and make concrete claims that it works. But numerous health and wellness professionals have used and recommended this product for years. I use the example of homeopathic medicine, there have been no FDA clinical trials like prescription medicines, but people have used different natural treatments for years with success and the field continues to grow.
I have used this device successfully for years to combat hair loss. It is believed that the main cause of hair loss is the buildup of DHT in the hair follicle and the lack of stimulation and blood circulation to the follicle. As the DHT builds up, the circulation to the follicle decreases, causing the growth cycle to get less and less. The hair follicle eventually dies. The Violet Ray stimulates the hair follicle to grow because of increased blood to the follicle, which in turn brings the nutrients it needs. It has worked for me for over 20 years. In addition, it is one of a few hair loss treatments that can be used by both males and females.
The Violet Ray has also been linked to the treatment of blemishes, acne, wrinkles, cellulite, and other uses. Increasing blood circulation to the face for wrinkles is something I also use my Violet Ray for because increased blood circulation to a wrinkle on the face increases collagen production. I am all about keeping my face looking clear and young. Do some research on the topic and see for yourself the different uses it has in the health and beauty fields.
Violet Rays are primarily made in China and there are a few manufacturers in Ukraine. As I learned, you can have two devices that look similar but the quality of one is much better than another. I did a lot of research and brand testing to pick a device that would be effective, of good quality, and safe for the novice user. I looked at a number of factors when finding the best Violet Ray. Characteristics such as durability of the electrode insert at the base of the unit or the time it takes to overheat.
I am so confident in the quality craftsmanship of my custom violet ray I give it a 120-day warranty. A warranty for this type of device is unheard of. The warranty is for the base of the unit. The warranty doesn’t cover the electrodes that slide into the base. If you have a warranty claim all you pay for is shipping from a U.S. based address located in Florida. Even if you don’t buy from me make sure to check where a unit would need to be sent to for repairs because shipping can be very expensive, more than the cost of the device, to places like China (where most violet rays are manufactured).
Last year, in addition to the warranty, we also changed the base of the unit because we have increased the power of the device compared to previous models by 33%. Customer feedback on the prior model suggested that the increase in power would be safe. One of my concerns was when is too much power counterproductive? The idea of overstimulation. However, in using it for 6 months, prior to introduction, I realized the change is a welcome one. This Violet Ray has the approval and recommendation of 4hairloss.org.
The power of a violet ray is in watts. Most new units come in 10 to 15 watts. My custom unit is 30 watts. The new violet rays you see for sale today are considered “home-use” units. They don’t have as much power as the commercial units that were made years ago. Back then the commercial units were made for professional use and were commonly used in salons and hair loss clinics. However, home-use units like mine are just as effective. The only difference is the treatment time is longer to compensate for the decreased power. I highly recommend a home-use unit because they are safer (less chance of burning yourself). Always ask how many watts the violet ray is that you are considering to purchase.
For this year’s model I am super excited to be adding an additional electrode, the “glass rake” electrode. The glass rake electrode was one of the original electrodes created when the device was first introduced years ago. I am super excited about adding this electrode because it is more effective than using the comb electrode on the scalp. The glass rake has 5 glass bristles compared to 9 on the comb electrode. This means the power is more concentrated on the glass rake electrode since it has less glass bristles to distribute the electric charge. That in turn means more stimulation in less time. I wanted to have this electrode when I first introduced my violet ray but it took some time to find a supplier, but now I finally have it!
Included with purchase is 4hairloss.org’s custom protocol and instructions based on our study of the device and how it is used. The custom protocol is my suggested use based on what I have seen in terms of success in getting maximum results.
Please be aware that with any treatment there are risks. Use as directed. We choose this Violet Ray because the strength of it is enough to be effective as a treatment but not too much to burn yourself easily. You can burn yourself with these types of devices if the current is too high and if you use on one spot for too long. In addition some skin types are more sensitive than others and some may not be able to use the Violet Ray because their skin is too sensitive. With any type of treatment it is recommended to consult your physician before use.

My experience and opinion on this product: I have talked about this device and have used this device for years and it works for me. The electrical current of the device stimulates the blood flow and the hair follicle. I see the results because it thickens my hair and brings back the natural color (hair that is receding becomes almost translucent looking). However, some people may not be able to use this because of scalp irritation, but the percentage is small. For those people I recommend trying the HairMax Laser Comb. I recommend using the violet ray as a complement or in addition to a topical hair loss treatment and not as a standalone treatment. The violet ray will stimulate and increase the life of your hair but you still must do something to inhibit the production of DHT because if you don’t it will be a losing battle.

Note regarding the new glass rake electrode: the storage box that holds the violet ray wasn’t big enough to house all 5 electrodes. The glass rake electrode doesn’t fit so you will have to have a safe spot to store the glass rake electrode when not in use. When you receive it in the mail, it will be wrapped in bubble wrap in the violet ray storage box, but as you will see there is no actual spot for it like the other four electrodes.
