Title
(EN) RADIO FREQUENCY HAIR REMOVAL TWEEZER
(FR) PINCETTE EPILATOIRE A RADIOFREQUENCE
Abstract
(EN)
A radio frequency hair removal tweezer assembly having an accurately formed lead-conductor pad configuration for providing greater radio frequency transmission capability. A raised conductor surface and angular inclination of the pad members (22, 32) permits forceful grasping of the hair and improved radio frequency transmission down the hair shaft. An integrally molded unitary tweezer unit is positioned within a split two piece housing assembly and results in rapid and accurate assembly of the working components and elimination of high rejection rates of previous similar tweezer units.
(FR)
Un ensemble de pincette épilatoire à radiofréquence possédant une configuration de tampon conducteur formée avec précision est destinée à fournir une capacité de transmission de radiofréquence accrue. Une surface conductrice relevée et une inclinaison angulaire des éléments tampon (22, 32) permetent de saisir le poil avec vigueur ainsi qu'une transmission améliorée de radiofréquences le long de la hampe du poil. Une unité de pincette unitaire est moulée en une seule pièce et placée à l'intérieur d'un boîtier divisé en deux parties, ce qui permet l'assemblage rapide et précis des éléments de fonctionnement ainsi que l'élimination des taux de rejet élevés des unités de pincette semblables antérieures.
