This invention relates to an electrically heated applicator.

An object of this invention is to provide a novel and efficient instrument for the application of heat and liquid simultaneously to the skin, and

the instrument is primarily intended to be used in giving beauty facial treatments.

Another object is the construction of a novel applicator for applying heat to the face and neck, thereby opening the pores, and at the same time releasing a certain amount of liquid and massaging the same into the open pores. i

A still further object of this invention is the construction of an instrument, which, at the time that the skin is being massaged, will allow oil to penetrate into the pores, causing the skin to assume a finer texture; this treatment removes all dirt and foreign matter from the pores.

My applicator can also be used for therapeutic treatment, as Well as beauty treatments.

With the foregoing and other objectsA in view, my invention comprises certain novel constructions, combinations, and arrangements of parts as will be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings, and more particularly pointed out in the appended claims.

In the drawings:

Figure 1 is a view in side elevation of an applicator constructed in accordance with the present invention, while Figure 2 is a top plan View.

Figure 3 is an enlarged vertical, central, sectional view.

Figure 4 is an enlarged fragmentary, vertical, sectional View, showing how the air hose is positioned in the instrument.

Figure 5 is a sectional View taken on line 5 5, Figure 4, and looking in the direction of the arrows.

Figure 6 is a sectional view taken on line 6 6, Figure 4, and looking in the direction of the arrows.

Figure 7 is an enlarged fragmentary View show` ing the pump partly in vertical section.

Figure 8 is a sectional View taken on line 8 8, Figure '7, and looking in the direction of the arrows.

Figure 9 is an enlarged fragmentary view partly in vertical section and partly in elevation of the upper part or the upstanding primary and auxiliary sleeves and the bottle or container.

Figure 10 is a perspective View of the bottle or container.

Referring to the drawings in which the preferred embodiment of the invention is illus- (Cl. 12S-24.1)

trated, I designates a tube on which is mounted a grip 2 which may be constructed of any suitable material. The tube I and grip 2 constitute Jthe handle of the instrument. On the inner end of tube I is a plate-like bearing 3, which bearing is fastened by any suitable means to the top section 4 of casing 5. bottom section 6.

The bottom section 6 of casing 5 is provided with discharge apertures I near the middle oi the section. Within the section and resting upon its bottom is a heating unit or device 8. An electric cord 9 extends through the tube I andone of its wires I is connected to theheating device 8, while the other wire II is connected to a thermostat I2 (Fig. 3); on the outside of oasingj is a thermostat control I3. This thermostat isl of the ordinary adjustable type, or it may be of a xed type (not shown).

The top section 4 is provided with an upstanding primary sleeve U4 that is provided with preferablyahinged cap I5. i Y

The bottom section 6 is `provided with an integral upstanding sleeve I 6 that at its upper portion ts within the primary sleeve I 4, Figs. 3 and 4. A cylindrical collar Il is separably mounted within the lower portion of the auxiliary sleeve I6; the collar Il resting at its lower edge upon the bottom of the base or bottom section 6. This collar I'I constitutes a support for the container or bottle I8; the bottle I8 being mounted Within the auxiliary upstanding sleeve I6. A coil spring I9 is preferably positioned between the upper or inner end of bottle I8 and the cap I5. When desired, the operator can raise or remove the cap I5, suiiiciently to permit the bottle I8 to be removed from the casing 5. When the bottle is removed it can be set on its bottom and a suitable cap 26 (Fig. 10) can be screwed into position, thereby keeping the contents of the bottle from escaping or evaporating.

The top section 4 is held by any suitable means upon the bottom section 6, but when desired the two sections of casing 5 can be easily separated by the operator.

A pump V2| is an essential element of this nvention and the pump comprises a cylindrical casing 22, which is held upon the grip 2 by means of the suitable clamp band 23. The lower end of casing 22 is provided with an exhaust port 24 and on its side and near its upper end is another port 25. A piston rod 26 is slidably mounted on the upper end of casing 22 and on the inner end of piston rod 26 is a piston head 21 (Fig. 7). A coil spring 28 is in casing 22 be- The casing 5 includes a tween the piston head 21 and the outer end of the casing. Normally the spring 28 holds the piston head 21 over the outer end of the air tubing or hose 29. When the operator presses inwardly on grip 30, this will cause the piston head 21 to move downwardly, drawing air in through port 25 into the cylinder casing 22, and then by placing a finger over port 25, the air will be prevented from escaping through said port, when the operator releases the grip, and the piston head moves upwardly,whereby theaii inlthecylinder s casing 'will be forced through thev air hose 29 and into the upper end of the inverted bottle l8ias shown in Figure 4. The air tubing or hose 29 ehters the upstanding sleeves .14, and|6 tliro}.1gh registering apertures 3i (Figj'l landthe'ps's'es downwardly in the longitudinally extending tle resting on said support, and means for supplying air to said bottle whereby liquid may be discharged therefrom to said outlet apertures.

2. In an electrically heated applicator, the combination of a casing comprising separable upper and lower sections, said upper section being provided with an upstanding integral primary sleeve, a cap on the upper end of said primary sleeve, said lower section provided with an integral upstanding auxiliary sleeve, said, auxiliary sleeve extending' intofsaid primary sleeve, a cylindrical separable collarv in theI lower end of said auxiliary sleeve, said lower section being provided with 'outlet apertures within the marginal edges of said 'theipper edge of said cylindrical collar, a pump groove 32 of bottle I8, thence passing Aupwardly through the hose part 33 of the peculiarly'shaped aperture 34, which aperture 34 also hasan outlet.

Therefore, it willibe seenthat 'whenthel air hose is in position upon the bottle, the outletfportion 35zdfl`the aperture34 lis very small, practically preventing liquid from leaking or' passing downward until air pressure isl in the floot't'le 18, by reason of the,v airfhose 292 and pump From the foregoing description, it is tdbe un- :derstood'that any suitable material such vas plastics may be used inconstructing thegrip 2.',and the' casing 5; `the same is true ,with 'reference to the material used in constructing bottle circon- 'tainer'lj While Irhave described the preferred embodiment of my inventionand illustrated 'the same the accompanying drawings, certain minor' lchanges or alterations may appeart'o`one'skilled irfthe art to which this invention relatesduriig I-the 4extensive manufacture of the same," and I,
