This invention relates to =anew and improved device for removing wrinkles from the face. v a
An object of the invention concerns the provision of simple and eflicient means which i can be readily applied to i any portion of the face .for the purpose ofexerting .the proper directional pull thereon in the endeavor to remove wrinkles, i V
Another object concerns Ktl'iG provision of simple and Teflicient -means whereby a ,plurality of patches are adhesively associated withthe featuresand connected by resilient mean-s so .that'one patch will act .asa base or foundation from which the pullon the other may-be enerted A further object concerns the provision of means whereby the active adhesive surfaces can be readily renewed without buying an entirely new device.
A still further object concerns the provision of means whereby the device can be very readily attached to the head so that it will be retained properly in place without any undue discomfort on the part of the user.
The invention is illustrated in the drawings, of which 7 Figure 1 is a view of the head of a person with the device attached thereto;
Fig. 2 is an elevation of a portion of the device adapted to be applied to one side of the face;
Fig. 3 is a view ed to be applied to the opposite side of the face Fig. 4; is an elevation of the means used to embrace the head and connect the two units;
Fig. 5 is a section taken on the line 55 of Fig. 2;
Fig. 6 is a section through a portion of the device showing the renewal patches complete;
Fig. 7 is an elevation of the renewal patch in position; and
Fig. 8 is an elevation of a renewal patch by itself.
The form of the invention shown in the drawings is a preferred form, although it is understood that modifications in the construction and arrangement of the parts and in the character of the materials used may be adopted without departing from the spirit of the invention as set forth in the appended claims."
of a similar portion adapt ln its general aspect, the invention com- ,prises a patch which, preferably, 'has a fabr c base and adhesive applied to one surface thereof, this adhesive surface adapted to adhere to any portion of the features to:
which it is desiredto apply it. Preferably this patch is :sold with .a thin protective covering over the adhesive, which can be removed whenit isto be used, The patch is connected by suitable strips .ofresilient material :to another patch similarly con- .structed. In the operationof theidevice, one
patch is applied to the features at any \desired portion and thenithe other patchlisiapplied .to an adJacent portion, and during silient connections are stretched to the proper dcgreeso that when .the second patch has been adhesively applied these resilient connections will exert a pull between the two patches which will be maintained on the features through'the patches for the'purpose of holding the features in any desired position.
Preferably, the patches are used in units of two or more applied to the opposite sides of the face, and are connected by a resilient band of material so that an additional tension is exerted directly on the various units, preferably through the first applied patch;
In selling the device, it is desirable to supply with the'device additional patches, and means are provided whereby these additional patches can be easily and quickly applied to the old ones, preferably by disposing them thereover and attaching them thereto by any suitable means such as thread.
In the preferred form of the invention shown in the drawings there is shown a plurality of patches, each comprising a fabric base 1, preferably of cloth, and a second layer of material 2 on the outer surface of which adhesive material is applied. These layers of material in each patch are connected together by suitable hollow rivets such as 3 and i. In the device shown there are two patches, such as A and 13, used in connection with each unit. These patches are connected by strips 5 and 6 of resilient material.
The patch, such as A, is also supplied with a flexible band 7 having a link 8 adapting it to be connected to a band of resilient material such as 9 having hooks 10 and 11 .on its'ends, this band adapted tobe passed around the head of the wearer.
the application of the second patch .there- 7 When the adhesive surface of the patch has been used for a considerable time it may be renewed by placing thereover an auxiliary patch or adhesive surface 12 which has a plurality of openings 13 therein to register with the rivet openings in the patch, and this renewal patch is connected to the old surface preferably by sewing or running threads 14 through the aligning apertures to hold the two patches together.
In. the operation of the device, a unit is taken and applied to one side of the features by removing the protective covering from the patches and applying one patch, such as A, to the face. After this is properly adhering thereto, a second patch connected therewith is adhesively applied to an adjacent portion of the features, preferably at such a distance away that the strips 5 and 6 are under considerable tension. This will produce a pull on the flesh as desired and in the direction desired in accordance with the disposition of the patches relative to the features and to each other.
After these units are applied on opposite sides of the face, the band 9 is connected to the loops 8 and adjusted by any suitable means (not shown) to give the proper ten- 1. A wrinkle removing device, which comits force prises a pair of patches adapted to be disposed closely adjacent each other on the flesh and eachhaving a foundation surface of cloth or fabric, an adhesive surface on each patch, resilient connections between said patches, a resilient connection to one of said patches having a loop in its end, and a band of resilient material adapted to pass around the head of the user, a hook on the end of said band adapted to be connected to said loop.
2. A wrinkle removing device, which comprises a band of flexible material adapted to partially embrace the head of the user, a pair of patches disposed on opposite sides of the face, adhesive means on each patch to connect it to the face, auxiliary patches associated with each of said first-mentioned patches and having adhesive surfaces where by they may be applied to the features, and resilient connections between the first-inentioned patches and the auxiliary patches.
