F. N. LEWIS FOREHEAD STRAP Filed March 2, 1923 Patented June 17, 1924.
FLORENCE 1\T. LEWIS, `015 NEW YORK, 1\T. Y.
Application filed March 2, 1923.
T o all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, FLORENCE N. Iinwis, a citizeness of the United States, residing at New York, county of New York, and 5 State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Forehead Straps, of which the following is a speci- Iication.
This invention relates to improvementsy in appliances for facial treatment or mas sage, and it is the principal object of the invention to provide ay strap for the treatn ment of the forehead to remove wrinkles therefrom, etc., and to be used in connection with an astringent or without the same.
Another object of the invention is the yprovision of a bandage o-r strap of this character which can be readily applied to the head and removed therefrom and securely fastened thereto for intimately holding the astringent to the skin to be absorbed thereby and to contract the soft organic tissues of `the forehead and remove all wrinkles and furrows therefrom to produce a smooth skin.
A further object of the invention is the provision of a forehead strap which can be readily adjusted to any size of head.
Ihese and other objects of my invention B0 will become more fully known as the description thereof proceeds and will then be specically pointed out in the appended claim. g
In the accompanying drawing, forming a material part of this disclosure:
Figure 1 is a plan view of my appliance constructed according to the present invention, seen from its inner side.
Figure 2 is an edge view of the same.
4.0 The device comprises a comparatively wide Central part 10, preferably made of rubber, or any other suitable material with the ends of which are integrally made or at- Serial No. 622,301.
tached thereto in any suitable manner, straps 11 and 12 each provided with a plurality of perforations 18 through which the attaching bands 14 are drawn, as illustrated.
In approximately its middle, near the lower part there-of, the central part 10 has a strengthened pad 15, the inner margin of which is curved inwardly as at 16, while its lower edge is outwardly curved as at 17.
It will be clear that the astringent spread over the skin ofthe forehead, or a pad of absorbent cotton saturated with such an astringent will be lirmly kept in place under the bandage when the same is secured to the forehead `by means of straps 11 and 12 and hands A, and the strengthened art 1.5
will snugly lit `against the part of t e forehead between the eyebrows to treat the wrinkles formed between the same.
forehead strap may also just as well be used without the astringent to produce the desired results by repeated treatments.
Changes may be made inthe general arn rangement and in the construction of the minor details of my invention `without deviating from the scope and spirit thereof.
What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
the forehead of a person.
In testimony whereof I have aflixed my signature.
FLORENCE N. LEWIS.
