Violet Voltage? Answered

Every so often, I see "violet ray" electrotherapy devices come up on ebay. They often sell for silly money, but occasionally one will sell for only a few pounds.

Originally quack medical devices, they seem to operate in a similar manner to a plasma globe (gas discharges, high voltages). Does anybody know how they work? Is it worth getting hold of one to rip the innards out to get at the high-voltage supply?

(Yes, I know they have "adult uses", but, really, it is the innards I'm talking about)
