Abstract

The hair remover comprises a case in which a cylindrical hair removing head (2) rotates. The head has clamping strips (3,4) which mate in pairs to clamp the hairs and uproot them by rotation. The strips are adjacent on one side with a smooth cylindrical surface (5) coaxial with the head rotation axis (X-X'). On the other side they are adjacent to a hollow elongated zone (6) extending parallel to the strip alignment. This zone is adjacent to another smooth cylindrical surface (5a) diametrically opposite to the first. The hollow zone is in front of the strips relative to the head rotation direction (R). The hollow zone has a series of small brushes (7) adjacent the edge of the cylindrical surface. Near one of the sides of the strips the hollow zone has a series of needles (9).

Description

  • [0001]
    La présente invention concerne un appareil pour épiler la peau humaine comprenant un boîtier dans lequel est monté en rotation une tête d'épilation de forme générale cylindrique, comportant des lames de pincement coopérant par paires pour pincer les poils et les arracher du fait de la rotation. The present invention relates to a device for epilating human skin comprising a housing in which is rotatably mounted a generally cylindrical epilation head, having clamping blades cooperating in pairs to pinch the hairs and tear due to the rotation .
  • [0002]
    Les appareils de ce type connus par exemple selon le FR-A-2553939, et les EP-A-0328426 et 0403315, comprennent un rouleau rotatif constitué de disques complets ou échancrés. The devices of this type known, for example according to FR-A-2553939, and EP-A-0328426 and 0403315, include a rotating roller consists of complete or scalloped discs. Ces disques sont souvent fixes (FR-A-2553939 et EP-A-0403315) et dans ce cas les lames mobiles prennent appui contre les disques pour pincer les poils. These discs are often fixed (FR-A-2553939 and EP-A-0403315) and in this case the movable blades are supported against the discs for clamping the bristles. Ces disques peuvent également être mobiles et constituer des lames venant en appui contre d'autres lames en forme de disques (EP-A-0328426). These discs can also be movable and form of the blades resting against other disk-shaped blades (EP-A-0328426).
  • [0003]
    Dans tous ces appareils, les disques prennent appui sur la peau. In all these devices, the discs are supported on the skin. Du fait de la faible surface de contact de ces disques avec la peau, ceux-ci tournant à grande vitesse peuvent irriter la peau en produisant avec cette dernière un effet de scie. Due to the small contact area of ​​these discs with the skin, these rotating at high speed can irritate the skin by producing therewith a saw effect.
  • [0004]
    De plus, les disques en rotation gênent le déplacement de la tête d'épilation dans le sens parallèle à son axe. In addition, the rotating disks hinder the displacement of the depilation head in the direction parallel to its axis. Un tel déplacement engendre une friction qui irrite la peau. Such movement produces a friction which irritates the skin.
  • [0005]
    Le but de l'invention est de remédier aux inconvénients des appareils à épiler ci-dessus. The purpose of the invention is to overcome the disadvantages of removing appliances above.
  • [0006]
    L'invention vise ainsi un appareil pour épiler la peau humaine comprenant un boîtier dans lequel est monté en rotation une tête d'épilation de forme générale cylindrique, comportant des lames de pincement coopérant par paires pour pincer les poils et les arracher du fait de la rotation. The invention thus provides an apparatus for epilating human skin comprising a housing in which is rotatably mounted a generally cylindrical epilation head, having clamping blades cooperating in pairs to pinch the hairs and tear due to the rotation.
  • [0007]
    Suivant l'invention, cet appareil est caractérisé en ce que les lames sont adjacentes d'un côté à une surface cylindrique lisse coaxiale à l'axe de rotation de la tête et de l'autre côté à une zone allongée en creux s'étendant parallèlement à l'alignement des lames, cette zone étant elle-même adjacente à une autre surface cylindrique lisse diamétralement opposée à la première, ladite zone en creux étant située en avant des lames relativement au sens de la rotation de la tête. According to the invention this apparatus is characterized in that the blades are adjacent on one side to a smooth cylindrical surface coaxial with the axis of rotation of the head and on the other side to an elongate hollow zone extending parallel to the alignment of the blades, said zone being itself adjacent to another smooth cylindrical surface diametrically opposite the first, said hollow zone being situated in front of the blades relative to the direction of rotation of the head.
  • [0008]
    L'appareil ainsi ne comporte plus de disque. The device thus no longer includes disk.
  • [0009]
    Les lames de pincement sont comprises entre des surfaces cylindriques qui prennent contact avec la peau sans engendrer ni douleur, ni irritation. pinching blades are between cylindrical surfaces which make contact with the skin without causing pain or irritation.
  • [0010]
    De plus, grâce à ces surfaces de contact lisses, l'appareil présente une plus grande mobilité de déplacement dans le sens de l'axe de rotation de la tête d'épilation, ce qui augmente son efficacité. In addition, with these smooth contact surfaces, the apparatus has a larger mobility shift in the direction of the axis of rotation of the epilation head, which increases its effectiveness.
  • [0011]
    D'autre part, la zone en creux, située en avant des lames, permet, lors de la rotation de la tête, aux poils de se redresser, avant d'être pincés entre les lames, ce qui garantit l'efficacité de l'arrachage des poils. On the other hand, the recessed area located in front of the blades, allows, during the rotation of the head, the hair to recover before being pinched between the blades, which ensures the effectiveness of the pulling out hairs.
  • [0012]
    Selon une version avantageuse de l'invention, la zone en creux comprend près du bord de la surface cylindrique lisse une série de petites brosses. In an advantageous version of the invention, the recessed area comprises near the edge of the smooth cylindrical surface a series of small brushes.
  • [0013]
    Ces petites brosses redressent les poils couchés par le contact avec les surfaces cylindriques et lisses et permettent ainsi un pincement et un arrachage efficaces des poils. These small brushes straighten hair lying in contact with the cylindrical, smooth surfaces and thus enable effective pinching and pulling hair.
  • [0014]
    Selon une version préférée de l'invention, la zone en creux comprend près de l'un des côtés des lames une série de picots dont le sommet est situé sur un cylindre virtuel coaxial à l'axe de la tête et dans lequel sont inscrites les deux surfaces cylindriques lisses. According to a preferred version of the invention, the recessed area comprises near one of the sides of the blades a series of pins whose apex is located on a virtual cylinder coaxial with the axis of the head and in which are entered the two smooth cylindrical surfaces.
  • [0015]
    Ces picots évitent que la tête d'épilation saute sur la peau au passage de la zone en creux et produisent sur la peau un effet de massage diminuant la douleur due à l'arrachage des poils. These pins prevent the epilation head jumps on the skin to the passage of the recessed area on the skin and produce a massaging effect reducing pain due to picking hairs.
  • [0016]
    De préférence également, les lames sont montées dans des évidements formés dans un bloc, séparés les uns des autres par des parois dont le bord extérieur est en retrait par rapport audit cylindre virtuel, le bord extérieur des lames faisant saillie au dessus du bord extérieur desdites parois. Also preferably, the blades are mounted in recesses formed in a block, separated from one another by walls whose outside edge is set back relative to said virtual cylinder, the outer edge of the blades projecting above the outer edge of said walls.
  • [0017]
    Cette disposition améliore l'efficacité de l'arrachage des poils courts, sans augmenter la douleur. This arrangement improves the efficiency of pulling out the short hairs without increasing pain.
  • [0018]
    De préférence également, chaque paroi séparant les évidements comprend sensiblement dans son prolongement plusieurs picots. Also preferably, each wall separating the recesses substantially comprises in its extension several pins.
  • [0019]
    Les picots présentent avantageusement une largeur mesurée dans la direction d'allongement de la zone en creux qui diminue progressivement à partir de la paroi adjacente du bloc. The pins preferably have a width measured in the direction of elongation of the hollow zone that gradually decreases from the adjacent wall of the block.
  • [0020]
    Dans une version particulière, la surface desdites surfaces cylindriques lisses comprend un revêtement anti-friction. In a particular version, the surface of said smooth cylindrical surfaces includes an anti-friction coating.
  • [0021]
    Cette disposition améliore le glissement de la tête d'épilation sur la peau et augmente donc son efficacité. This arrangement improves the sliding of the epilation head on the skin and therefore increases efficiency.
  • [0022]
    Par ailleurs, l'appareil peut comporter des moyens pour refroidir les surfaces cylindriques lisses de la tête pour atténuer encore davantage la douleur. Moreover, the apparatus can comprise means for cooling the smooth cylindrical surfaces of the head to further mitigate the pain.
  • [0023]
    D'autres particularités et avantages de l'invention apparaîtront encore davantage dans la description ci-après. Other features and advantages of the invention appear further in the description below.
