Comme le montre les figures, le dispositif de traitement esthétique selon l'invention est réalisé sous forme d'une cloche d'aspiration à laquelle sont associés des transducteurs ultrasonores. As shown in the figures, the cosmetic treatment apparatus according to the invention is designed as a suction bell which are associated with ultrasonic transducers.

Plus précisément, le dispositif comporte un carter 1 se composant essentiellement d'une chemise extérieure sensiblement cylindrique 2 entourant coaxialement un manchon cylindrique interne 3 et de deux éléments en forme de couvercle 5, 6 destinés à être emboîtés sur les deux extrémités ouvertes de la chemise 2, comme on le voit sur la figure 1. L'élément de couvercle inférieur 6 est réalisé sous forme d'un corps creux sensiblement cylindrique dont une extrémité 7 est ouverte pour son emboîtement sur la chemise 2 et dont l'autre extrémité est fermée par une paroi plane 8. Cette face est pourvue d'une ouverture coaxiale 9 entourée par un embout tubulaire interne étagé 10, la portion de plus grand diamètre 11 étant située du côté de la paroi 8. More specifically, the device comprises a casing 1 consisting essentially of a substantially cylindrical outer sleeve 2 which coaxially surrounds an inner cylindrical sleeve 3 and two shaped elements cover 5, 6 to be fitted onto the two open ends of the jacket 2, as seen in Figure 1. the lower cover member 6 is formed as a substantially cylindrical hollow body, one end 7 is open for its insertion on the sleeve 2 and the other end is closed by a flat wall 8. This face is provided with a coaxial opening 9 surrounded by a stepped internal tubular ferrule 10, the portion of larger diameter 11 being located towards the wall 8.

Le couvercle supérieur 5 est également réalisé sous forme d'un corps tubulaire creux ouvert à son extrémité 11 d'emboîtement sur la chemise 2 et fermé à son autre extrémité une paroi plane 12. Cette paroi présente au centre une ouverture coaxiale 13 et, excentré un perçage 14. The upper cover 5 is also formed as a hollow tubular body open at its end 11 fitting on the liner 2 and closed at its other end a flat wall 12. This wall has in the center a coaxial opening 13 and eccentric a bore 14.

Le dispositif comporte en outre une douille 16 destinée à etre montée coaxialement dans le manchon 3 du carter 1 ainsi qu'une pièce tubulaire 17, élargie à ses deux extrémités, l'extrémité inférieure présentant une forme cylindrique d'un diamètre relativement important 18, destinée à être reçue dans la portion élargie de l'ouverture centrale du couvercle inférieure 6. L'autre extrémité présentant également une forme cylindrique est filetée sur sa face extérieure pour permettre la fixation vissage d'un raccord 21 à un tuyau non représenté et menant par exemple à une pompe ' vide. The device further comprises a sleeve 16 intended to be mounted coaxially in the sleeve 3 of the housing 1 and a tubular part 17 extended at its two ends, the lower end having a cylindrical shape of a relatively large diameter 18, intended to be received in the widened portion of the central opening of the lower cover 6. the other end also having a cylindrical shape is threaded on its outer face to allow screwing attachment of a connector 21 to a not shown hose and leading for example with a pump vacuum.

Selon une caractéristique essentielle de l'invention, on place sur la face interne 2 de la paroi de fermeture 9 du couvercle inférieur 6, angulairement régulièrement réparties quatre plaquettes circulaires en matière piézo-électrique . According to an essential feature of the invention is placed on the inner face 2 of the closure wall 9 of the lower cover 6, regularly distributed angularly four circular wafers of piezoelectric material. Ces corps piézo-électriques qui constituent des transducteurs générateurs d'ultrason, comme il sera expliqué plus loin, sont fixés sur la face interne 23 par collage à 'aide d'une colle conductrice. These piezoelectric bodies which constitute ultrasound transducers generators, as will be explained below, are fixed on the inner face 23 by bonding using a conductive adhesive. La tension électrique est appliquée au corps piézo électrique 22 par un câble 24 dont les conducteurs d'alimentation 25 des corps 22 passent à l'intérieur du dispositif par l'espace annulaire qui est délimité à l'état assemblé, entre pièce interne 17 et la douille 16. The electrical voltage is applied to the piezoelectric body 22 by a cable 24 including the power conductors 25 of the body 22 pass inside the device through the annular space which is delimited in the assembled state, between inner part 17 and the sleeve 16.

La figure 2 montre encore des joints respectivement supérieurs 27 et 28 pour assurer un assemblage étanche de l'ensemble. Figure 2 also shows upper joints 27 and 28 respectively to ensure a tight connection of the assembly. La figure indique encore la possibilité d'éclairer par l'intérieur le carter 1 du dispositif à l'aide de diodes électroluminescentes 30 qui se trouvent à l'état assemblé à l'intérieur de l'espace annulaire 31 délimité entre la chemise extérieure 2 et le manchon interne 3 du carter 1. The figure also indicates the possibility of light from inside the casing 1 of the device using light emitting diodes 30 which are in the assembled condition within the annular space 31 defined between the outer liner 2 and the inner sleeve 3 of the housing 1.

Concernant l'assemblage des différentes pièces montrées sur la figure , il suffit de placer le manchon 14 dans le manchon 3 et de fermer le corps de carter par emboîtement des couvercles 5 et 6 et d'introduire ensuite axialement la pièce tubulaire 17 jusqu'à ce que l'extrémité élargie 18 vienne se loger dans la portion d'embout 10 du couvercle Concernant le fonctionnement du dispositif, on comprend aisément qu'en connectant par l'intermédiaire du raccord 21 le dispositif à une source génératrice d'une dépression telle qu'une pompe à vide, on créé au niveau de l'ouverture 9 dans la paroi 8 du couvercle 1 inférieure 6 formant tete de traitement, une force d'aspiration. Regarding the assembly of the various parts shown in the figure, simply place the sleeve 14 in the sleeve 3 and to close the casing body by fitting lids 5 and 6 and then to introduce axially the tubular part 17 to that the enlarged end 18 is received in the tip portion 10 of the lid Concerning the functioning of the device, it is readily understood that by connecting via the coupling 21 the device at a generating source of such depression a vacuum pump, is created at the opening 9 in the wall 8 of the cover 1 lower head 6 forming treatment, a suction force. Lorsqu'on applique une tension électrique aux corps transducteurs générateurs d'ultrasons, on fait vibrer la paroi 8, la fréquence des ultrasons était de préférence variable entre 0,6 MHz et 3 MHz. When applying an electric voltage to the ultrasonic generators transducer body is vibrated the wall 8, the ultrasonic frequency was preferably variable between 0.6 MHz and 3 MHz. Bien entendu le diamètre des plaquettes piézo-électriques est choisi en fonction de la fréquence. Of course, the diameter of the piezoelectric plates is selected according to the frequency. Concernant l'aspiration, on créé une dépression supérieure ou égale à 0,2 bar. Regarding aspiration, created higher depression or equal to 0.2 bar.

Pour un traitement esthétique, selon l'invention, on déplace le dispositif sur la partie de la peau à traiter avec la paroi 8 au contact de celle-ci et connecte le dispositif à la source de dépression et à l'alimentation électrique. For aesthetic treatment according to the invention, moving the device on the part of the skin to be treated with the wall 8 in contact with the latter and connects the device to the vacuum source and to the power supply. La vibration de la paroi 8 en contact avec la peau, sous l'effet des quatre plaquettes piézo-électriques assure un traitement, sans traumatisation des tissus cutanés par les forces d'aspiration, s'exerçant sur la peau en contact avec la paroi . The vibration of the wall 8 into contact with the skin, under the effect of the four piezoelectric plates provides treatment without traumatization of skin tissue by the suction forces acting on the skin in contact with the wall. Ainsi, le traitement par des ultrasons, connu pour faciliter la pénétration des agents actifs cosmétologiques dans la peau procure un effet supplémentaire avantageux inattendu, c'est-à-dire il permet mettre en oeuvre le traitement par aspiration, appelé vacuo-thérapie, sans provoquer traumatismes des différents plans cutanés. Thus, treatment with ultrasound, known to facilitate the penetration of cosmetic active agents in the skin provides an unexpected advantageous additional effect, that is to say it allows the implementation of the aspiration treatment, called vacuo therapy without injuries cause various cutaneous layers.

Grâce au traitement simultané par aspiration et par ultrasons le procédé selon l'invention permet d'engendrer une mobilisation douce et progressive différents plans tissulaires cutanés. With the concurrent processing by aspiration and ultrasound the method according to the invention allows to generate a gentle and progressive mobilization different cutaneous tissue planes. L'effet des deux types de traitement, à savoir par aspiration et ultrasons, peut être facilement réglé par ajustage approprié de la force d'aspiration et des vibrations ultrasonores. The effect of both types of treatment, namely by suction and ultrasound, can be easily adjusted by appropriate adjustment of the suction force and ultrasonic vibration. I1 est à noter que la puissance ultrasonore est avantageusement choisie inférieure ou égale à 2 W/cm2, alors que la dépression pour produire l'effet de l'aspiration est de préférence supérieure ou égale à 0,2 bar la gamme de fréquence est avantageusement comprise entre 0,6 et 3 MHz. I1 is noted that the ultrasound power is advantageously chosen less than or equal to 2 W / cm2, while the vacuum to produce the effect of suction is preferably greater than or equal to 0.2 bar frequency range is advantageously between 0.6 and 3 MHz.

Bien entendu des diverses modifications peuvent être apportées au dispositif qui vient d'être décrit et est représenté sur les figures, sans sortir du cadre de l'invention. Naturally various modifications can be made to the device which has just been described and illustrated in the figures, without departing from the scope of the invention. Le mode de réalisation représenté, comportant une tête de traitement dans laquelle les disquettes piézo-électriques génératrices des ultrasons sont disposées, de façon angulairement équidistantes, autour d'une ouverture d'aspiration centrale est particulièrement approprié à fréquences de vibration de ces plaquettes transductrices plutôt élevées. The embodiment shown, having a processing head in which the piezoelectric disks generating ultrasound are disposed so angularly equidistant around the central suction opening is particularly suitable for vibration frequencies of the transducer pads instead high. En effet, dans cette portion des fréquences élevées, le diamètre des plaquettes doit être relativement faible. Indeed, in this portion of the high frequencies, the diameter of the platelets should be relatively low. Par contre, dans la partie inférieure de la gamme de fréquence susmentionnée, on pourrait envisager de disposer une ou plusieurs plaquettes piézo-électriques au centre de la tête de traitement formée par le couvercle inférieure 6 et de prévoir avantageusement l'ouverture d'aspiration sous forme d' fente avantageusement annulaire autour de cet orifice. For against, in the lower part of the range of frequency above, one might consider to arrange one or more piezoelectric wafers in the center of the processing head formed by the lower lid 6 and advantageously provided under the suction opening form of preferably annular slit around this orifice.

I1 est à noter, de façon générale, que la forme et le nombre des corps transducteurs générateurs d'ultrasons et de l'ouverture d'aspiration peuvent être choisis en fonction des effets que l'on souhaite obtenir. I1 is to be noted generally that the shape and the number of ultrasonic generators transducer body and the suction opening can be chosen according to the effects which are desired.
