Title
(EN) APPARATUS FOR ELECTRO-INHIBITION OF FACIAL MUSCLES
(FR) APPAREIL POUR L'ELECTRO-INHIBITION DES MUSCLES DE LA FACE
Abstract
(EN)
The invention concerns a method for performing an electric inhibition of the facial muscles for purely aesthetic purposes, using a device comprising a support at the head of a user (1), two contact electrodes (2), an electronic circuit (3) for generating low-voltage electric pulses at said electrodes (2), a direct current electric power supply (4) and means for fixing and locking (7) said components on the head. The invention is characterized in that it includes the following steps: placing the electrodes (2) on either side of the upper part of the nose, at the glabella; passing the electric pulses via the electrodes (2) through the pyramidal muscle of the nose so as to cause said pyramidal muscle of the nose to relax and hence its antagonist muscle, the forehead muscle and the double eyebrow muscle.

La présente invention se rapporte à un procédé pour réaliser une inhibition électrique de muscles de la face à des fins purement esthétiques, utilisant un dispositif comprenant un support au niveau de la tête d'un utilisateur (1), deux électrodes de contact (2), un circuit électronique (3) pour la création d'impulsions électriques basse tension au niveau desdites électrodes (2), une alimentation électrique à courant continu (4) et des moyens de fixation et blocage (7) des éléments précités sur ladite tête, caractérisé par les étapes suivantes de: - disposer les électrodes (2) de chaque côté de la partie supérieure du nez, au niveau de la glabelle; - faire passer lesdites impulsions électriques via les électrodes (2) au travers du muscle pyramidal du nez de manière à provoquer le relâchement dudit muscle pyramidal du nez et par suite de son muscle antagoniste, le muscle frontal et du double muscle sourcilier.
