Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS OF FACIAL TREATMENT AND STRAIN SENSING
Abstract:
A method of facial treatment of a user while wearing a treatment system is disclosed. The treatment system includes a flexible film and circuitry disposed on or within the flexible film. The method includes conformally disposing the flexible film over a face of the user and applying a radio frequency (RF) wave, generated by the circuitry, on skin of the face. The method eliminates the need for a user (or a third-party operator) to hold the device by hand. In addition, the thin film can be configured as a face mask allowing treatment over a large area of skin at any given time.
