Title
(EN) COMBINED SONIC AND IONTOPHORETIC SKIN CARE DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE SOIN CUTANÉ SONIQUE ET IONTOPHORÉTIQUE COMBINÉ
Abstract
(EN) The present disclosure seeks to address the primary problem of long application durations to deliver an effective dose of an active ingredient. The devices combine mechanical motion with electrically induced flux (e.g., iontophoresis). The combination of techniques in a single device can reduce the treatment time required to deliver the active ingredient in an effective dose, or deliver a larger dose over the same duration of application. The present disclosure provides a dermal formulation delivery device, comprising: (a) a device head comprising a source of oscillatory or reciprocating mechanical motion at a sonic frequency; and (b) an electrical system, comprising: (i) a first electrode, disposed on the device head and configured to be in electrical communication with a subject's skin; (ii) a second electrode, configured to be in electrical communication with the subject's skin; and (iii) a power source in electrical communication with the first electrode and the second electrode; wherein the electrical system is configured such that the first electrode and the second electrode are configured to be in electrical communication with separate locations of the subject's skin simultaneously during operation.
(FR) La présente invention concerne le problème principal que représentent les longues durées d'application nécessaires pour l'administration d'une dose efficace d'un principe actif. Les dispositifs de l'invention associent un mouvement mécanique à un flux induit électriquement (par exemple, l'iontophorèse). L'association de plusieurs techniques dans un dispositif unique permet de réduire la durée de traitement requise pour administrer le principe actif en une dose efficace, ou administrer une dose plus importante pendant la même durée d'application. La présente invention concerne un dispositif d'administration de formulation dermique comprenant les éléments suivants : (a) une tête de dispositif comportant une source de mouvement mécanique oscillatoire ou de va-et-vient à une fréquence sonique ; et (b) un système électrique comprenant (i) une première électrode placée sur la tête du dispositif et conçue pour être en communication électrique avec la peau d'un sujet, (ii) une seconde électrode conçue pour être en communication électrique avec la peau du sujet, et (iii) une source d'énergie en communication électrique avec la première électrode et la seconde électrode. Ledit système électrique est conçu de telle sorte que la première électrode et la seconde électrode sont conçues pour être en communication électrique avec des emplacements séparés de la peau du sujet de manière simultanée pendant le fonctionnement.
