To all whom it amig] oncerfn: A p Be it known that JULIETTE P. ARNOLD, a
I citizen of the United States, residing lat l Apponaug', in the county of Kent and State 6 of Rhode Island, has invented certain new and useful Improvements in Wrinkle-Itemoving Appliances,'of which the( following is a-speciticatioii. p
This invention relates to wrinkle -remov- 'ing appliance of the applicator type for supy porting and holding the muscles of th@l face inl place for removing all sagging lines around 'the inouth, `nose and chin in a inanner heretofore accomplished by plastic sur-J er l, g Iii the practice of plastic surgery resorted to, the operation of cutting forl removing facial wrinkles is not only painful to the-individual but is not permanenty and must beVV repeated quite frequently. According to the present invention the removing of wrinkles is accomplished by'- means of applicators which may be worn at any time without dislcomfortl and will be v invisible being concealedin the hair of the wearer. The principal object of this invention is to improve the construction of such applicators and the means for securing them in place. f
Further object-s and details ofthe invention will appear as described in connection with the accompanying drawing and hereinafter set forth and claimed.
. In the drawings forming a partof this specification, like characters lof reference are used tQ-designate the same parts inthe several figures, in which,- 4
Figure 1 is a profile view of the head and face of a woman wearing a device in accordance with this invention, u
Figure 2 is a plan view on a larger scale illustrating the same applicator,
Figure 3 is an edge viewof this applicator Figure 4 is a backrplan view of agsimilar ap licator of a slightly modified shape, and iizigures 5 and 6 are similar plan viewsof la'pphcators varying in shape. l f
Referringto the drawings, Figure l'dis- 5 0 closes the mode of applying the applicator 10, shown in detail in Figures 2 and 3, which applicator, as shown, is secured on the faceover the cheek-bone', andgby'means of a cord 11 fastened'to this applicator and extending 55 over'the top-of the head the fleshi and in'usdesired vtension and tied; itfwill be noted that the cords are preferably double in order to facilitate the fasteningv` and releasing' of v the knot which hold them together.
The applicator 10 comprises an adhesive plaster l2 whichvi's folded upon itself at 13 65 with the end 14 extending down far enough toprovide a comparatively rigid marginal border, 15. Centrally of this border is an eyelet 16 which performs the function of fastening this marginal portion and also means through which the cord. 11 may be fastened. In the process of manufacture of this'applicator, a protecting fabric 17 may be fastened, or placed over the adhesive material of the plaster with its upper end eX- 75 tending beyond or bent'back jipon 'itself, or, if the applicator is made from adhesive plaster already provided with thisAprot'ective fabric, the fabric maybe raised so that the plaster can ,be formed into the marginal 'so border at its upper end, and then the raised end of the fabric may be cut to shape, bent or operated upon as desired. It will be readilyf understood that when the ap licator is -to be used this protective fabricis removed'` by grasping the end tab 18 provided for the purpose, and then the placed in position on the face.
The adhesive plasters are made in various s apes `according to the conditions and use L90.' the are to be put to. In Figure 4 an applicator 19 yshaped so as to be particularly adapted tobe secured to the forehead for removing the wrinkles there is disclosed.` i Figure 5 shows an applicator 20 shaped for 95 positioning around the eyes for stretching s both the cheek and forehead laterally. The applicator 21 shown in Figure'iis adapted plaster can be L to be placed 'around the ear, one cord 22 arranged above the ear and a second cord 23 10.0 belowthe two being joined toa third cord 24 to the vrear of the ear to which tensionis i applied for taking up asagging cheek. In. the applicator 21 two eyelets 25 and 2 6 are provided for the two cords -22 and 23 and 1,05 two corresponding marginal borders 27 and 28 which hold the applicator in proper shape as is apparent from the drawing.-
Anotherl feature of the` invention isa the coloring 'of' the applicators and their Sup l porting cords. AThat is, the .backs of the 'ap-A plicators are made in different colors with correspondingly colored cords to match S- that applicators may be selected to match the when the hair is arranged'so as to cover the applicators, they will not be noticeable.'
In usmg these applicators it is obvious that facial treatments may be given either before or after the devices are applied and secured in position, and astringents or various otler preparationsmay be employed for obliterating the Wrinkles and hardening the muscles for maintaining them ina desired position in conjunction with the applicators. In the treatment the cords 11 may be drawn so as to have considerable tension, and afterwards loosened considerably while Wearing the applicators.
Havmg thus disclosed the invention it is not desired to have it limited closely to the specific embodiments shown, it being understood that various chan es may be made vWithout departing from t e spirit of the invention as indicated by the scope of the following claim.V
What is claimed as the invention and is desired to be secured by Letters Patent is z- A wrinkle removing appliance comprising an adhesive plaster, one end of said 4plaster being bent upon itself soas to provide a comparatively rigid marginal portion, an
eyelet passing through said marginal porv ture.
