Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR TREATMENT OF TISSUE
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCEDE DESTINES AU TRAITEMENT DE TISSUS
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus to treat the skin includes a template having a tissue interface surface and an energy delivery device coupled to the template. The energy delivery device is configured to be coupled to a power source and has a variable resistance portion. A sensor is coupled to one of the template, the energy delivery device, the tissue interface surface or a power source coupled to the energy delivery device. In another embodiment the variable resistance portion is configured to reduce an electrode edge effect.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil destiné au traitement de la peau qui comprend une matrice pourvue d'une surface interface tissu/matrice et un dispositif d'alimentation en énergie couplé à la matrice. Ce dispositif d'alimentation en énergie peut être couplé à une source électrique et possède une partie résistance variable. Un capteur est couplé soit à la matrice, soit au dispositif d'alimentation en énergie, soit à la surface interface tissu/matrice soit enfin à la source électrique couplée au dispositif d'alimentation en énergie. Dans un autre mode de réalisation de l'invention, la partie résistance variable est agencée de façon à réduire l'effet du bord d'une électrode.
