(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE PHOTOEPILATION ET D'ELECTROEPILATION
Abstract:
(EN) An epilation unit (10) having separate probes for utilizing in photoepilation (14) or electroepilation (16) independently of one another for removing body hair. The electroepilation power applied easily can be visually determined by observing an indicating lamp array (38), such as a plurality of LED's. The operator can apply one or the other of the probes (14, 16) or alternatively can apply both probes to remove the hair where desired.
(FR) Appareil d'épilation (10) muni de soudes séparées destinées à être utilisées dans la photoépilation (14) ou l'électroépilation (16) indépendamment l'une de l'autre, afin de retirer les pilosités corporelles. Le courant de l'électroépilation appliqué facilement peut être déterminé visuellement par observation d'un réseau (38) de lampes témoins, tel qu'une pluralité de DEL. L'utilisateur peut appliquer l'un ou l'autre des capteurs (14, 16) ou peut encore appliquer les deux capteurs afin de retirer les pilosités là où il le désire.
