(本発明の参考となる第1の実施形態)
以下、本発明の参考となる第1の実施形態に係る美容装置を前記図1ないし図10に基づいて説明する。
(First embodiment for reference of the present invention)
Hereinafter, a beauty apparatus according to a first embodiment which is a reference of the present invention will be described with reference to FIGS. 1 to 10.

前記各図において本実施形態に係る美容装置1は、使用者により保持される本体部11と、本体部11の端部寄りに配設されて肌(皮膚)50に対するイオン導入等の美容動作に用いられるヘッド部12と、本体部11内に配設されてヘッド部12を弾性支持する弾性体としてのばね14と、本体部11における使用者による把持部分に配設される補助電極部11cと、ヘッド部12に対して多孔質被覆体13を保持する保持部15と、本体部11内に配設されてヘッド部12と補助電極部11c間での使用者を介した通電状態を調整制御する制御部16とを備える構成である。   In each of the drawings, the cosmetic device 1 according to the present embodiment is provided for a cosmetic operation such as ion introduction to the skin (skin) 50 which is disposed near the end of the main body 11 and the main body 11 held by the user. A head portion 12 used; a spring 14 as an elastic body that is disposed in the main body portion 11 and elastically supports the head portion 12; and an auxiliary electrode portion 11c disposed in a grip portion of the main body portion 11 by a user. The holding portion 15 that holds the porous covering 13 with respect to the head portion 12 and the adjustment state of the energization state through the user between the head portion 12 and the auxiliary electrode portion 11c disposed in the main body portion 11 are controlled. It is the structure provided with the control part 16 to perform.

前記本体部11は、前記ヘッド部12が一端寄りに突出状態で配設される一方、他端側所定長さ範囲は使用者が使用時に手で把持して装置全体を保持するのに適した太さの把持部11aとされてなり、この把持部11aの長手方向とヘッド部12の正面方向とが所定角度分傾いた形状として形成され、内部には前記制御部16等の電気回路や電源としての電池(図示を省略)を配設される構成である。   The main body portion 11 is arranged with the head portion 12 protruding toward one end, while the predetermined length range on the other end side is suitable for the user to hold it by hand during use. The grip portion 11a has a thickness, and the longitudinal direction of the grip portion 11a and the front direction of the head portion 12 are inclined by a predetermined angle. As a battery (not shown).

また、ヘッド部12の無い本体部11背面側には、使用者の入力操作を受けて美容動作のON、OFFや動作の種類、強弱等を切換える操作部11bが配設される。そして、本体部11における把持部11aの側面には、導電性部材からなり制御部16と接続された補助電極部11cが配設され、、使用者が把持部11aを把持するとその手指と補助電極部11cとが接触することとなる。この本体部11には、バイブレータ等の振動源を内蔵して、通電と共に肌70に振動を付加し、美容効果を高められるようにすることもできる。   Further, on the back side of the main body 11 without the head unit 12, an operation unit 11b is provided for switching the cosmetic operation ON / OFF, the type of operation, the strength, etc. in response to a user's input operation. And the auxiliary electrode part 11c which consists of an electroconductive member and was connected to the control part 16 is arrange | positioned by the side surface of the holding part 11a in the main-body part 11, and when a user hold | grips the holding part 11a, the finger and auxiliary electrode The part 11c comes into contact. The main body 11 can incorporate a vibration source such as a vibrator, and can add vibration to the skin 70 along with energization to enhance the beauty effect.

さらに、本体部11におけるヘッド部12のある正面側には、前記保持部15が本体部11に対し傾動可能として取付けられる構成である。この本体部11における保持部15の取付部分は、本体部11の内部とは完全に遮断されており、この部分からイオン導入用の液剤等が内部に浸入することを防止できる。   Further, the holding part 15 is attached to the front side of the main body part 11 where the head part 12 is located so as to be tiltable with respect to the main body part 11. The attachment part of the holding part 15 in the main body part 11 is completely cut off from the inside of the main body part 11, and it is possible to prevent the liquid for ion introduction and the like from entering the inside from this part.

前記ヘッド部12は、金属等の導電性を有する材質からなり、凸形状、具体的には、肌70に面接触可能な緩やかな曲面状の頂面12aと傾斜した側面12bとを有する略楕円錐台形状とされ、頂面側を先端として本体部11の一端部正面側から突出させて配設される構成であり、肌70に直接、又は多孔質被覆体13を介して当接し、肌70に対しイオン導入をはじめとする通電に係る美容動作を実行するものである。   The head portion 12 is made of a conductive material such as metal, and has a convex shape, specifically, a generally elliptical shape having a gently curved top surface 12a capable of surface contact with the skin 70 and an inclined side surface 12b. It has a frustum shape, is configured to protrude from the front side of one end of the main body 11 with the top side as a tip, and is in contact with the skin 70 directly or via the porous covering 13, A cosmetic operation related to energization such as ion introduction is performed on 70.

このヘッド部12は、楕円形状の頂面12aにおける楕円長軸方向、すなわち本体部11の長手方向、の端部となる縦縁部12c、及び楕円短軸方向、すなわち本体部11の長手方向と直交する方向、の端部となる横縁部12dにおける、それぞれ側面との交差部を丸み面取り形状とされる構成である。そして、横縁部12dと側面との交差部の丸み面取り形状の曲率に対し、縦縁部12cと側面との交差部の丸み面取り形状の曲率が小さく(丸み半径を大きく)されてなる(図4参照)。   The head portion 12 includes an elliptical long axis direction on the top surface 12a having an elliptical shape, that is, a longitudinal edge portion 12c serving as an end of the longitudinal direction of the main body portion 11, and an elliptical short axis direction, that is, the longitudinal direction of the main body portion 11. In the horizontal edge portion 12d serving as an end portion in the direction orthogonal to each other, the intersecting portions with the side surfaces are rounded and chamfered. Then, the curvature of the round chamfered shape at the intersection of the vertical edge portion 12c and the side surface is made smaller (the radius of the roundness is larger) than the curvature of the rounded chamfered shape at the intersection of the lateral edge portion 12d and the side surface (see FIG. 4).

ヘッド部12の内側では、ヘッド部12と本体部11との間に前記弾性体としてのばね14が介設されると共に、前記ヘッド支持部として、棒状の支持軸部14aが本体部11にヘッド部12の突出方向と平行な向きに所定範囲進退可能として取付けられる。この支持軸部14aは、ばね14で本体部11から遠ざかる向きに付勢されている。ヘッド部12は、内側における頂面12aに近い裏面中央の支点部12fで、支持軸部14aの先端と摺動可能に当接し、この支持軸部14aを介してばね14により本体部11から遠ざかる向きに付勢されつつ弾性支持される(図7参照)と共に、支持軸部14a及び本体部11に対し傾動可能とされる(図8(A)、図9(B)参照)。   Inside the head portion 12, a spring 14 as the elastic body is interposed between the head portion 12 and the main body portion 11, and a rod-like support shaft portion 14 a is attached to the main body portion 11 as the head support portion. It is attached in a direction parallel to the protruding direction of the portion 12 so that it can advance and retract within a predetermined range. The support shaft portion 14 a is biased by the spring 14 in a direction away from the main body portion 11. The head portion 12 is a fulcrum portion 12f at the center of the back surface close to the top surface 12a on the inner side, and slidably contacts the tip of the support shaft portion 14a, and is moved away from the main body portion 11 by the spring 14 through the support shaft portion 14a. It is elastically supported while being biased in the direction (see FIG. 7), and can be tilted with respect to the support shaft portion 14a and the main body 11 (see FIGS. 8A and 9B).

このように、ヘッド部12を、頂面12a近くで本体部11からは離れた支点部12fを中心として傾動可能とすることに伴い、ヘッド部12を肌70に当接させた状態では、使用者の本体部11を動かす操作力に伴ってヘッド部12を移動させようとする力が、ヘッド部12の移動に伴って肌70からヘッド部12に相対的に加わる反力に比べ、ヘッド部12の傾動により大きく関わり、肌70からヘッド部12に加わる反力は、肌70に対するヘッド部12の移動に伴う抵抗力をより小さくするようにヘッド部12を傾ける、すなわち、ヘッド部12をその頂面12aが肌70に正対するように傾けるのみとなる(図8(A)参照)。   As described above, the head portion 12 can be tilted around the fulcrum portion 12f near the top surface 12a and away from the main body portion 11, and the head portion 12 is used in a state where the head portion 12 is in contact with the skin 70. Compared to the reaction force applied to the head unit 12 from the skin 70 with the movement of the head unit 12, the force for moving the head unit 12 with the operation force to move the body unit 11 is compared with the head unit. The reaction force applied to the head portion 12 from the skin 70 inclines the head portion 12 so that the resistance force accompanying the movement of the head portion 12 against the skin 70 is further reduced, that is, the head portion 12 is It only tilts so that the top surface 12a faces the skin 70 (see FIG. 8A).

このため、ヘッド部12を肌70に沿って動かす際には、肌70の傾きの変化にヘッド部頂面12aを追随させられ、頂面12aを常に肌70に沿わせることができ、肌70とヘッド部12との接触面積を十分に確保して、ヘッド部12を移動させながらでも、ヘッド部12を動かさずに使用する状態と変わりない美容効果を容易に得られる。これに対し、図8(B)に比較例として示すように、仮にヘッド部18が頂面18aから離れて本体部17に近い箇所を中心として傾動可能とされた場合、操作力に伴ってヘッド部18を移動させようとする力と、ヘッド部18の移動に伴って肌70からヘッド部18に相対的に加わる反力とが共に、ヘッド部18を移動方向と逆向きに傾けるように作用して、ヘッド部18が肌70に食込む状態となってしまう。本実施形態のようにヘッド部12を頂面12a近くの支点部12fを中心として傾動可能とすることで、こうしたヘッド部の肌への食込みを確実に防止して、肌への負担を抑えられる。   For this reason, when moving the head part 12 along the skin 70, the head part top surface 12a can be made to follow the change of the inclination of the skin 70, and the top surface 12a can always be along the skin 70. Even when the head portion 12 is moved while ensuring a sufficient contact area between the head portion 12 and the head portion 12, a cosmetic effect that is the same as when used without moving the head portion 12 can be easily obtained. On the other hand, as shown in FIG. 8B as a comparative example, if the head portion 18 can be tilted around a position close to the main body portion 17 away from the top surface 18a, the head is accompanied by an operating force. Both the force for moving the portion 18 and the reaction force applied from the skin 70 to the head portion 18 along with the movement of the head portion 18 act to tilt the head portion 18 in the direction opposite to the moving direction. As a result, the head portion 18 enters the skin 70. By enabling the head portion 12 to tilt around the fulcrum portion 12f near the top surface 12a as in the present embodiment, it is possible to reliably prevent such head portion from biting into the skin and to suppress the burden on the skin. .

ヘッド部12における錐台底面側の縁部は、他部分より外径を若干大きくした鍔状とされて、本体部11内に収められ、この本体部11におけるヘッド部12を一部収る空隙部分の入口開口部分がヘッド部12の底面側縁部より小口径とされることで、ヘッド部12の本体部11からの離脱が防止される仕組みである。また、こうしてヘッド部12の錐台底面側の縁部が本体部11に拘束されることで、ばね14で本体部11から遠ざかる向きに付勢されるヘッド部12の突出方向への移動範囲や、ヘッド部12の支持軸部14aに対する傾動角度範囲が制限される仕組みである。   An edge of the head portion 12 on the bottom surface side of the frustum is shaped like a bowl having a slightly larger outer diameter than other portions, and is housed in the main body portion 11, and a gap that partially accommodates the head portion 12 in the main body portion 11. This is a mechanism that prevents the head portion 12 from being detached from the main body portion 11 by making the inlet opening portion of the portion have a smaller diameter than the bottom side edge portion of the head portion 12. In addition, since the edge portion of the head portion 12 on the bottom surface side of the frustum is constrained by the main body portion 11, the movement range in the protruding direction of the head portion 12 biased in the direction away from the main body portion 11 by the spring 14 In this mechanism, the tilt angle range of the head portion 12 with respect to the support shaft portion 14a is limited.

また、ヘッド部12は、本体部11内で制御部16と電気的に接続されており、把持部11aにある補助電極部11cとの間で使用者の体を介して通電可能とされる構成である。なお、ばね14や支持軸部14aが導電性の材質からなる場合、こうしたばね14や支持軸部14aを本体部11側からヘッド部12への通電用配線の一部として利用する構成としてもかまわない。   In addition, the head unit 12 is electrically connected to the control unit 16 in the main body unit 11, and can be energized via the user's body with the auxiliary electrode unit 11c in the grip unit 11a. It is. When the spring 14 and the support shaft portion 14a are made of a conductive material, the spring 14 and the support shaft portion 14a may be used as a part of the current-carrying wiring from the main body portion 11 side to the head portion 12. Absent.

通電については、制御部16によりヘッド部12と補助電極部11c間に電圧が加えられて通電が起こり得る状態とされた上で、電解質成分を含む化粧水等の液剤が含浸した多孔質被覆体13を介して、又は直接、ヘッド部12が顔等の肌70に接触し、また補助電極部11cが把持部11aを持つ掌や手の指等と接触すると、ヘッド部12と補助電極部11cとが使用者の体を介して通電状態となる仕組みである。この場合、人体が導体をなすこととなる。ヘッド部12と補助電極部11cは十分離れており、補助電極部11cに触れた手等がヘッド部12に誤って接して、通電が生じるようなことはない。   For energization, the control unit 16 applies a voltage between the head unit 12 and the auxiliary electrode unit 11c so that energization can occur, and the porous covering is impregnated with a liquid agent such as skin lotion containing an electrolyte component. 13 or directly when the head part 12 contacts the skin 70 such as the face and the auxiliary electrode part 11c comes into contact with the palm or the finger of the hand having the grip part 11a, the head part 12 and the auxiliary electrode part 11c. Is a mechanism that is energized through the user's body. In this case, the human body becomes a conductor. The head portion 12 and the auxiliary electrode portion 11c are sufficiently separated from each other, so that a hand or the like touching the auxiliary electrode portion 11c is not in contact with the head portion 12 and no current is generated.

このヘッド部12の接する肌70への通電に伴って、あらかじめ肌表面に塗布したか、多孔質被覆体13に染込ませたかした化粧水等の液剤中に含まれるイオン性の有効成分を、制御部16からの電流に基づくイオン移動によって肌内部に導入するイオン導入(イオントフォレーシス)を実行できる仕組みである。このイオン導入の手法自体は公知のものであり、詳細な説明を省略する。   With the energization of the skin 70 in contact with the head portion 12, an ionic active ingredient contained in a liquid such as lotion that has been applied to the skin surface in advance or has been soaked in the porous covering 13, This is a mechanism capable of executing ion introduction (iontophoresis) introduced into the skin by ion movement based on current from the control unit 16. Since the ion introduction method itself is known, a detailed description thereof will be omitted.

また、洗顔時のクレンジングとして、帯電した老廃物等の汚れ成分を通電により肌側からヘッド部12側に移行させ、多孔質被覆体13に取込む状態を得ることもできる。   Further, as cleansing during face washing, it is also possible to obtain a state in which dirt components such as charged wastes are transferred from the skin side to the head unit 12 side by energization and taken into the porous coating 13.

多孔質被覆体13は、カット綿やコットンパフ等と同様の脱脂等加工した綿繊維をヘッド部12より大きい不織シート状に成形してヘッド部12を覆うカバーとして用いるものであり、化粧水等を十分吸収してそのまま保持できる性質を備える。なお、この多孔質被覆体13は、化粧水等を含浸可能で可撓性を有する多孔質の軟質シート状のものであれば、コットン以外のものも利用できる。   The porous covering 13 is used as a cover for covering the head portion 12 by forming cotton fibers processed by degreasing, such as cut cotton and cotton puff, into a non-woven sheet larger than the head portion 12. It has the property that it can be absorbed and retained as it is. In addition, as long as this porous covering body 13 can be impregnated with skin lotion or the like and has a flexible porous soft sheet shape, those other than cotton can be used.

このヘッド部12は、イオン導入等を行う関係上、チタン等の通電に対し安定した材質を用いるのが望ましい。すなわち、仮にヘッド部12をクロム等のメッキ表面とした場合、イオン導入の際、電気分解によりヘッド部12の表面に金属イオンが溶出し、この溶出金属イオンが皮膚に対して悪影響を与えるという問題を生じるが、安定性の高いチタンを電極表面に用いれば、通電を経てもヘッド部12での電気分解によりチタンの金属イオンが溶出することはなく、安全に使用できる。この電極表面材料は、純チタンが望ましいものの、チタン化合物であってもよい。また、チタン以外に金などの金属を用いる他、導電性樹脂や導電性ゴム、あるいはゴム等の弾性体表面に金属等の導体を貼付けたり導体の薄膜を配置して形成した構造とすることもできる。   The head portion 12 is desirably made of a material that is stable with respect to energization, such as titanium, in terms of ion introduction and the like. That is, if the head part 12 is made of a plating surface such as chromium, metal ions are eluted on the surface of the head part 12 by electrolysis when ions are introduced, and the eluted metal ions have an adverse effect on the skin. However, if titanium having high stability is used on the electrode surface, metal ions of titanium are not eluted by electrolysis in the head portion 12 even when energized, and can be used safely. The electrode surface material is preferably pure titanium, but may be a titanium compound. In addition to using metal such as gold in addition to titanium, it may have a structure formed by attaching a conductor such as metal to the surface of an elastic body such as conductive resin, conductive rubber, or rubber, or arranging a thin film of conductor. it can.

前記保持部15は、本体部11の正面側に沿って本体部11の一部を覆う形状として形成され、一端部にヘッド部12を露出させる開口孔15aを設けられ、他端部を傾動中心として本体部11他端部に傾動可能に取付けられ、本体部11正面側に重なり合う位置から、ヘッド部12から離れて本体部11から突出状態となる位置まで傾動可能とされる構成である。この保持部15は、本体部11の補助電極部11cを覆わない形状であればよく、例えば、ヘッド部周辺以外は極めて幅の狭い略棒状のものでもかまわない。   The holding part 15 is formed in a shape that covers a part of the main body part 11 along the front side of the main body part 11, and is provided with an opening hole 15 a that exposes the head part 12 at one end part, and the other end part is a tilt center. It is attached to the other end part of the main body part 11 so as to be tiltable, and can be tilted from a position overlapping the front side of the main body part 11 to a position where the head part 12 protrudes from the main body part 11. The holding portion 15 may be in a shape that does not cover the auxiliary electrode portion 11c of the main body portion 11. For example, the holding portion 15 may be a substantially narrow rod shape other than the periphery of the head portion.

この保持部15の開口孔15aは、ヘッド部12よりも一回り大きな楕円形状または長円形状の孔とされ、保持部15を傾動させるとヘッド部12が相対的に保持部15の開口孔15aを出入りする状態となる。保持部15を本体部11に重なる位置まで傾動させると、ヘッド部12は保持部15の開口孔15aから前方へ突出することとなり、ヘッド部12を肌70に当てる際に、より後方の保持部15は肌70に触れにくい状態となる。   The opening hole 15a of the holding portion 15 is an elliptical or oval hole that is slightly larger than the head portion 12. When the holding portion 15 is tilted, the head portion 12 is relatively opened. It will be in the state to go in and out. When the holding portion 15 is tilted to a position where it overlaps the main body portion 11, the head portion 12 protrudes forward from the opening hole 15 a of the holding portion 15, and when the head portion 12 is applied to the skin 70, a more rear holding portion is provided. 15 is in a state where it is difficult to touch the skin 70.

開口孔15aの縁には本体部11側に向って突出する突起15bが形成される。この突起15bは開口孔15aの縁に沿って連続させる他、断続形状や波状となっているものでもよい。   A protrusion 15b is formed on the edge of the opening hole 15a so as to protrude toward the main body 11 side. In addition to being continuous along the edge of the opening hole 15a, the protrusion 15b may have an intermittent shape or a wave shape.

この保持部15を、ヘッド部12から離れる向きに傾動させて本体部11の正面側に突出状態となる位置(図5参照)とした上で、ヘッド部12の頂面12aを覆うようにして多孔質被覆体13をヘッド部表面に位置させ、さらに保持部15を本体部11に対しヘッド部12に接近するように傾動させて、本体部11に重ね合せると、多孔質被覆体13の周縁部分が保持部15と本体部11との間に挟まれて多孔質被覆体13が容易に離脱しない状態となり(図6参照)、多孔質被覆体13をヘッド部12表面に位置させた状態で保持できる仕組みである。使用状態では、本体部11の把持部11aと保持部15とを使用者がまとめて把持することで、保持部15と本体部11が離れることはなく、これらに挟まれた多孔質被覆体13を確実に保持することができる。   The holding part 15 is tilted in a direction away from the head part 12 so as to be in a protruding state on the front side of the main body part 11 (see FIG. 5), and then the top surface 12a of the head part 12 is covered. When the porous covering 13 is positioned on the head portion surface, and the holding portion 15 is tilted so as to approach the head portion 12 with respect to the main body portion 11 and overlapped with the main body portion 11, the peripheral edge of the porous covering body 13 is obtained. The portion is sandwiched between the holding portion 15 and the main body portion 11 so that the porous covering 13 is not easily detached (see FIG. 6), and the porous covering 13 is positioned on the head portion 12 surface. It is a mechanism that can be maintained. In the use state, when the user holds the grip portion 11a and the holding portion 15 of the main body portion 11 together, the holding portion 15 and the main body portion 11 are not separated from each other, and the porous covering body 13 sandwiched between them is held. Can be securely held.

この保持部15の傾動中心から開口孔15aまでの長さは、できるだけ長く設定し、ヘッド部12が開口孔15aに進入して保持部15が本体部11に重なり合う際の、本体部11に対する保持部15の傾斜角度をなるべく小さくして、本体部11に対して保持部15を略平行に押し付けて多孔質被覆体13を均等に保持する状態が得られるようにしている。   The length from the tilting center of the holding portion 15 to the opening hole 15a is set as long as possible, and the holding of the main body portion 11 when the head portion 12 enters the opening hole 15a and the holding portion 15 overlaps the main body portion 11 is performed. The inclination angle of the portion 15 is made as small as possible, and the holding portion 15 is pressed substantially in parallel with the main body portion 11 so that the state in which the porous covering 13 is uniformly held can be obtained.

前記制御部16は、本体部11に内蔵され、使用者の操作部11bへの入力操作を受けて、ヘッド部12と補助電極部11c間の通電を、それぞれ制御するものである。この制御部16は美容用途ごとに通電動作のモードを設定しており、本実施形態においては、皮膚に蓄積している有害成分や老廃物を除去するクレンジングモード、皮膚の深部に化粧水等の有効成分を浸透させるイオン導入モード、及び、通電時の電極極性を切替えて皮膚の血行を促す血行促進モードの三つがある。   The control unit 16 is built in the main body unit 11 and controls energization between the head unit 12 and the auxiliary electrode unit 11c in response to an input operation to the operation unit 11b by the user. The control unit 16 sets a mode of energization operation for each cosmetic application. In this embodiment, a cleansing mode for removing harmful components and waste accumulated in the skin, and a lotion or the like in the deep part of the skin. There are three modes: an iontophoresis mode for penetrating active ingredients, and a blood circulation promotion mode for switching the electrode polarity when energized to promote blood circulation of the skin.

これらクレンジングモードとイオン導入モード、血行促進モードでは、ヘッド部12と補助電極部11c間を通電状態とする点は共通するものの、通電の際の電流の向きや波形が異なることとなる。また、血行促進モードには、同様の通電波形ながら通電時間が異なるマッサージとリフティングの二つのモードがあり、マッサージモードは主にクレンジングモードの後で通電により皮膚の血行促進やその弾力性の維持を図るものであり、一方、リフティングモードは、主にイオン導入モードの後で通電により皮膚の血行促進や有効成分の定着、浸透を図りつつ、皮膚の引上げ効果を生じさせるものである。   In the cleansing mode, the iontophoresis mode, and the blood circulation promotion mode, although the point where the head portion 12 and the auxiliary electrode portion 11c are energized is common, the direction and waveform of the current during energization are different. The blood circulation promotion mode has two modes, massage and lifting, with the same energization waveform but different energization times. The massage mode mainly promotes blood circulation of the skin and maintains its elasticity by energization after the cleansing mode. On the other hand, the lifting mode is intended to bring about the effect of raising the skin while mainly promoting the blood circulation of the skin and fixing and penetrating the active ingredient by energization after the iontophoresis mode.

これら通電動作のモードの切替えは、操作部11bのモード切替スイッチ11dに対する使用者の入力操作に基づいて行われる。電源投入直後、使用者が最初にモード切替スイッチ11dを操作すると、制御部16はクレンジングモード、イオン導入モード、血行促進モードのいずれかを実行可能な状態となる。この他、各モードを所定の順序(例えば、クレンジング、マッサージ、イオン導入、リフティングの順)で連続して実行するようにしてもよい。その場合、制御部16が表示ランプ等の点灯により各モードの終了を通知しつつ、各モードの通電動作を一旦停止させ、所定時間経過の後、次のモードに移行するのが好ましい。   Switching between these energization modes is performed based on a user input operation to the mode switch 11d of the operation unit 11b. When the user first operates the mode changeover switch 11d immediately after the power is turned on, the control unit 16 is in a state where it can execute any one of the cleansing mode, the iontophoresis mode, and the blood circulation promotion mode. In addition, each mode may be continuously executed in a predetermined order (for example, cleansing, massage, iontophoresis, and lifting). In that case, it is preferable that the control unit 16 notifies the end of each mode by lighting a display lamp or the like, temporarily stops the energization operation of each mode, and shifts to the next mode after a predetermined time.

また、制御部16は、各動作モードに対応してヘッド部12と補助電極部11c間を通電状態とする場合に、この通電により使用者の皮膚を流れる電流の強さの調整を行うようにしてもよい。この場合、調整は操作部11bに別途設けられる強弱切替スイッチに対する使用者の入力操作に基づいて行われることとなる。   In addition, when the control unit 16 energizes between the head unit 12 and the auxiliary electrode unit 11c corresponding to each operation mode, the control unit 16 adjusts the intensity of the current flowing through the user's skin by the energization. May be. In this case, the adjustment is performed based on a user's input operation to a strength change switch provided separately in the operation unit 11b.

この制御部16は、そのハードウェア構成として、CPUやメモリ、入出力インターフェース等を備えるコンピュータとなっており、メモリ等に格納されるプログラムにより、コンピュータを制御手段として動作させる仕組みである。この制御部16をなすコンピュータは、通常は、CPUやメモリ、ROM等を一体的に形成されたマイクロコンピュータとされて実装される。   The control unit 16 is a computer having a CPU, a memory, an input / output interface, and the like as its hardware configuration, and is a mechanism that causes the computer to operate as a control means by a program stored in the memory or the like. The computer constituting the control unit 16 is usually mounted as a microcomputer integrally formed with a CPU, a memory, a ROM, and the like.

また、制御部16は、ヘッド部12が肌70に接してヘッド部12と補助電極部11c間で体等を介して通電可能となった状態をパルスを用いて検出して、美容に係る通電を開始する機能を備える構成である。通電可能状態を判別するためには、一方の電極から何らかのパルスが出力可能な状態であれば、このパルスが他方の電極にて検出されていることで肌に各電極部が当接されていると判断できるので、このパルスが他方の電極で検出されなくなった場合を通電不可能として判別できる。そして、通電不可能の場合に美容に係る通電を停止し、さらに、再び通電可能となった場合に通電を再開することとする。   In addition, the control unit 16 detects a state where the head unit 12 is in contact with the skin 70 and can be energized via the body or the like between the head unit 12 and the auxiliary electrode unit 11c using a pulse, and the energization related to the beauty It is the structure provided with the function to start. In order to determine the energization possible state, if any pulse can be output from one electrode, each electrode portion is in contact with the skin because this pulse is detected by the other electrode. Therefore, when this pulse is no longer detected by the other electrode, it can be determined that energization is impossible. Then, energization related to beauty is stopped when energization is impossible, and energization is resumed when energization is possible again.

検出のためのパルスを、ヘッド部12に対して出力するのか、補助電極部11cに対して出力するのかは、前記各モードにより異なるが、一方の電極から出力されたパルスが人体を介して他方の電極に通るように、パルスが出力されない側の電極の電位をGNDレベルに落とす必要がある。例えば、ヘッド部12からパルスを出力する場合には、補助電極部11cの電位をGNDレベルに落としておく。一方、補助電極部11cからパルスを出力する場合には、ヘッド部12の電位をGNDレベルに落としておく。   Whether a detection pulse is output to the head unit 12 or the auxiliary electrode unit 11c differs depending on each mode, but the pulse output from one electrode passes the other through the human body. It is necessary to drop the potential of the electrode on which the pulse is not output to the GND level so as to pass through the other electrode. For example, when a pulse is output from the head unit 12, the potential of the auxiliary electrode unit 11c is lowered to the GND level. On the other hand, when outputting a pulse from the auxiliary electrode part 11c, the electric potential of the head part 12 is dropped to the GND level.

次に、本実施形態に係る美容装置の通電動作状態について説明する。前提として、美容装置1が使用者による操作部11bの電源スイッチ11e操作により起動し、使用者が把持部11aを持ってヘッド部12を使用したい肌部位に向けられる状態にあるものとする。使用者により動作モードが選択入力されれば、制御部16が各動作モードの実行を開始可能な状態とする。   Next, the energization operation state of the beauty device according to the present embodiment will be described. As a premise, it is assumed that the beauty device 1 is activated by the user's operation of the power switch 11e of the operation unit 11b, and the user is in a state where the user holds the grip unit 11a and is directed to the skin site where the head unit 12 is desired to be used. If the operation mode is selected and input by the user, the control unit 16 enters a state in which execution of each operation mode can be started.

クレンジングを行う場合には、まず使用者は保持部15を傾動させてヘッド部12から離し、本体部11の正面側に突出した状態とし、電解質成分を含んだふき取り用化粧水を染みこませた多孔質被覆体13をヘッド部12表面に位置させる(図5参照)。さらに保持部15を本体部11に対しヘッド部12へ近付ける向きに傾動させ、保持部15上部の開口孔15aにヘッド部12を相対的に進入させつつ、保持部15を本体部11の正面側に重ね合せると、保持部15と本体部11との間に多孔質被覆体13の周縁部分が挟まれて、多孔質被覆体13がヘッド部12表面に保持、固定されると共に、多孔質被覆体13で覆われたヘッド部12が保持部15の開口孔15aより突出した状態となる(図6参照)。   When performing cleansing, first, the user tilts the holding portion 15 away from the head portion 12 and protrudes to the front side of the main body portion 11, and soaks in the wiping lotion containing the electrolyte component. The porous covering 13 is positioned on the surface of the head portion 12 (see FIG. 5). Further, the holding portion 15 is tilted in a direction approaching the head portion 12 with respect to the main body portion 11, and the head portion 12 is relatively advanced into the opening hole 15 a in the upper portion of the holding portion 15, and the holding portion 15 is moved to the front side of the main body portion 11. , The peripheral portion of the porous covering 13 is sandwiched between the holding portion 15 and the main body portion 11 so that the porous covering 13 is held and fixed on the surface of the head portion 12, and the porous covering The head portion 12 covered with the body 13 is projected from the opening hole 15a of the holding portion 15 (see FIG. 6).

多孔質被覆体13は、保持された状態でヘッド部12を本体部11側にわずかに押下げる分、ヘッド部12からその内側のばね14の弾性力に伴う反力を受けて相対的に押されており、多孔質被覆体13はヘッド部12から押されることで張りを与えられ、皺等無く伸びた状態でヘッド部12表面に密着すると共に、この伸びた状態で肌に接触できることとなり、ヘッド部12及び肌との接触面積を無理なく十分に確保できる。   The porous covering 13 is relatively pressed by receiving a reaction force due to the elastic force of the spring 14 on the inner side from the head 12 by the amount that the head 12 is slightly pushed down toward the main body 11 while being held. The porous covering 13 is given tension by being pushed from the head portion 12, and adheres to the surface of the head portion 12 in a stretched state without wrinkles, and can contact the skin in this stretched state. The contact area with the head portion 12 and the skin can be sufficiently secured without difficulty.

また、多孔質被覆体13がヘッド部12を被覆しつつ保持部15で保持された状態では、多孔質被覆体13の端部は本体部11に沿うこととなり、本体部11から外側方に多孔質被覆体13端部が突出して、例えば、使用者が目の近傍の肌にヘッド部12を向けている場合に、多孔質被覆体13の端部が目に入ったり、美容に係る動作の障害になったりするのを防止できる。   In the state where the porous covering 13 is held by the holding portion 15 while covering the head portion 12, the end of the porous covering 13 extends along the main body 11, and the porous covering 13 is porous outward from the main body 11. For example, when the user projects the head portion 12 toward the skin near the eyes, the end portion of the porous covering 13 enters the eyes, or the operation relating to the beauty is performed. It can be prevented from becoming an obstacle.

使用者が操作部11bのモード切替スイッチ11dを操作してクレンジングモードを選択すると、制御部16はまず検出用の信号を出力する。ヘッド部12を肌から離している状態では、ヘッド部12と補助電極部11c間が体を介して閉じた回路となっていないため、通電はないが、使用者が本体部11を動かしてヘッド部12を多孔質被覆体13を介し肌70に密着させると、体及び多孔質被覆体13中の化粧水を介した通電が可能となり、出力された検出用の信号の受信によりこの状態を検出すると、制御部16はクレンジングに係る通電状態に移行する。   When the user operates the mode selector switch 11d of the operation unit 11b to select the cleansing mode, the control unit 16 first outputs a detection signal. In the state where the head part 12 is separated from the skin, since the circuit between the head part 12 and the auxiliary electrode part 11c is not closed through the body, there is no energization, but the user moves the main body part 11 to move the head When the part 12 is brought into close contact with the skin 70 through the porous covering 13, the energization through the body and the skin lotion in the porous covering 13 becomes possible, and this state is detected by receiving the output detection signal. Then, the control part 16 transfers to the electricity supply state which concerns on cleansing.

すなわち、制御部16は、周期の短いパルス波形をなす通電をヘッド部12と補助電極部11c間で実行し、皮膚表面や内部の帯電した微細な汚れ成分(落ちきれなかった化粧品の成分、タバコの煙の成分、老化角質等)がヘッド部12に引寄せられて肌側から多孔質被覆体13側に移行し、多孔質被覆体13に汚れ成分が取込まれる状態となることで、肌の汚れを吸引除去できる。   That is, the control unit 16 executes energization having a short-cycle pulse waveform between the head unit 12 and the auxiliary electrode unit 11c, and the charged fine dirt component on the skin surface and inside (the cosmetic component that could not be removed, the tobacco) The smoke component, the aging skin, etc.) are attracted to the head portion 12 and are transferred from the skin side to the porous coating body 13 side, so that the dirt component is taken into the porous coating body 13. Dirt can be removed by suction.

こうしてヘッド部12を多孔質被覆体13を介し肌70に密着させている状態において、ヘッド部12は本体部11に対し弾性支持されており且つ傾動可能であることで、使用者の手による本体部11の支持状態が若干変化したとしても、ヘッド部12と肌との位置関係は維持され、ヘッド部表面の多孔質被覆体13は肌への接触圧力を適正としつつ、無理なく肌に当接でき、使用者はヘッド部12を肌に当接させるように本体部11を注意深く微調整しながら支持する必要はない。   Thus, in a state where the head portion 12 is in close contact with the skin 70 via the porous covering 13, the head portion 12 is elastically supported with respect to the main body portion 11 and can be tilted. Even if the support state of the part 11 is slightly changed, the positional relationship between the head part 12 and the skin is maintained, and the porous covering 13 on the surface of the head part can be applied to the skin without difficulty while maintaining an appropriate contact pressure to the skin. The user does not need to support the main body portion 11 with careful fine adjustment so that the head portion 12 is brought into contact with the skin.

クレンジング対象の肌70のうち、鼻の側面部分など、ヘッド部12の頂面12aを近接させにくい箇所については、ヘッド部12の側面12bを使用でき、この側面12bを多孔質被覆体13を介してこうした箇所の肌70に当接させることで、使用者は本体部11を無理な姿勢で保持したり持替えたりせずに済む。また、鼻と頬の境界部分など肌の凹状の隅部については、ヘッド部12の頂面12aにおける横縁部12dの曲率の大きい丸み面取り形状部分を使用することで、多孔質被覆体13を介して確実にヘッド部12を肌70の隅部へ当接させることができ、偏りなくクレンジングを行うことができる(図10参照)。   Of the skin 70 to be cleansed, the side surface 12b of the head portion 12 can be used for a portion where the top surface 12a of the head portion 12 is difficult to approach, such as the side surface portion of the nose, and the side surface 12b is interposed via the porous covering 13. By contacting the skin 70 at such a location, the user does not have to hold or change the main body 11 in an unreasonable posture. For the concave corners of the skin such as the boundary between the nose and cheeks, the porous covering 13 is formed by using a round chamfered shape portion having a large curvature of the lateral edge portion 12d of the top surface 12a of the head portion 12. Thus, the head portion 12 can be reliably brought into contact with the corner portion of the skin 70, and cleansing can be performed without deviation (see FIG. 10).

このクレンジングモードの通電は、ヘッド部12を多孔質被覆体13を介し肌70に密着させている間、低周波に対応する周期で繰返され、全体の通電波形は、低周波の波形にこれより高い周波数のパルス波形が重畳されたものとなる。   The energization in the cleansing mode is repeated at a period corresponding to the low frequency while the head portion 12 is in close contact with the skin 70 through the porous covering 13, and the entire energization waveform is changed to a low frequency waveform. A high-frequency pulse waveform is superimposed.

多孔質被覆体13を肌70に当接させたままヘッド部12を肌上で少しずつ移動させると、通電状態のまま汚れ除去の対象位置を変えられるが、ヘッド部12がその頂面近傍で本体部11からは離れた高い位置の支点部12fを中心として傾動可能とされていることで、肌からヘッド部12に加わる反力はヘッド部12の頂面を肌に正対させるように作用し、ヘッド部12の頂面を肌に沿わせた状態が常に得られ、多孔質被覆体13を確実に肌に当接させることができ(図9(B)参照)、ヘッド部を静止させた状態と変わりなくクレンジングの効果を発揮させられる。   When the head portion 12 is moved little by little on the skin while the porous covering 13 is in contact with the skin 70, the target position of dirt removal can be changed in the energized state, but the head portion 12 is near the top surface. The reaction force applied to the head portion 12 from the skin acts so that the top surface of the head portion 12 faces the skin by being tiltable about a fulcrum portion 12f at a high position away from the main body portion 11. In addition, the state in which the top surface of the head portion 12 is along the skin is always obtained, and the porous covering 13 can be surely brought into contact with the skin (see FIG. 9B). The cleansing effect can be demonstrated without changing the condition.

クレンジング動作を中断したり除去位置を変えるために、ヘッド部12を肌70から離すと、通電に伴うパルスが他方の電極で検出できなくなることで、制御部16は肌からヘッド部12が離されたと判別し、クレンジングに係る通電を停止させる。このように通電を停止している場合には、検出用の信号を再び出力する。そして、再び、ヘッド部12を多孔質被覆体13を介し肌70に密着させると、検出用の信号の受信により通電可能状態を検出することができ、制御部16はクレンジングに係る通電状態に移行し、通電を再開する。クレンジングを完全に終える場合は、使用者が操作部11bで動作モードを他に切替えるか電源をOFF状態とすればよい。   When the head unit 12 is separated from the skin 70 in order to interrupt the cleansing operation or change the removal position, the pulse accompanying the energization cannot be detected by the other electrode, and the control unit 16 separates the head unit 12 from the skin. The power supply related to cleansing is stopped. When the energization is stopped in this way, the detection signal is output again. When the head unit 12 is brought into close contact with the skin 70 via the porous covering 13 again, the energized state can be detected by receiving a detection signal, and the control unit 16 shifts to the energized state related to cleansing. And resume energization. When cleansing is completed completely, the user may switch the operation mode to another by using the operation unit 11b or turn off the power.

このクレンジングモードの終了後は、本体部11の把持部11a及び保持部15から把持していた手を離して把持状態を解除し、本体部11に重なる保持部15を傾動可能とする。そして、保持部15をヘッド部12から離れる向きに傾動させて本体部11正面側に突出した状態とし、保持部15を離して保持状態を解除された多孔質被覆体13を、ヘッド部12上から取外してヘッド部12を清浄化する。また、使用者は洗顔等を行って肌上に浮いた状態で残った汚れを取除くこととなる。   After the cleansing mode ends, the gripping state is released by releasing the hand gripped from the gripping part 11a and the holding part 15 of the main body part 11, and the holding part 15 overlapping the main body part 11 can be tilted. Then, the holding unit 15 is tilted in a direction away from the head unit 12 to protrude to the front side of the main body unit 11, and the porous covering 13 released from the holding state by releasing the holding unit 15 is placed on the head unit 12. To remove the head portion 12 and clean the head portion 12. In addition, the user cleans the face and removes the dirt remaining on the skin.

イオン導入を行う場合には、使用者は前記同様、保持部15を傾動させてヘッド部12から離し、本体部11の正面側に突出した状態とし、電解質成分を含んだ保護化粧水を染みこませた多孔質被覆体13をヘッド部12表面に位置させる。さらに保持部15を本体部11に対しヘッド部12へ近付ける向きに傾動させ、保持部15を本体部11の正面側に重ね合せて、保持部15と本体部11との間に多孔質被覆体13を挟持し、多孔質被覆体13をヘッド部12表面に保持、固定する。この場合、多孔質被覆体13をヘッド部12表面に保持、固定した後、多孔質被覆体13に化粧水を染みこませてもよい。   When ion introduction is performed, the user tilts the holding portion 15 away from the head portion 12 and protrudes to the front side of the main body portion 11 so as to soak the protective lotion containing the electrolyte component, as described above. The porous covering 13 is placed on the surface of the head portion 12. Further, the holding portion 15 is tilted in a direction approaching the head portion 12 with respect to the main body portion 11, and the holding portion 15 is superimposed on the front side of the main body portion 11, so that a porous covering is provided between the holding portion 15 and the main body portion 11. 13 is held, and the porous covering 13 is held and fixed on the surface of the head portion 12. In this case, after the porous covering 13 is held and fixed on the surface of the head portion 12, lotion may be soaked into the porous covering 13.

保持された多孔質被覆体13は、前記クレンジングの場合と同様、ヘッド部12からばね14の弾性力に伴う反力を受けて相対的に押されており、皺等無く伸びた状態でヘッド部12表面に密着すると共に、この伸びた状態で肌に接触できることとなる。   As in the case of the cleansing, the retained porous covering 13 is relatively pressed by receiving a reaction force due to the elastic force of the spring 14 from the head portion 12, and the head portion is stretched without wrinkles. In addition to being in close contact with the surface, the skin can be contacted in this stretched state.

使用者が操作部11bのモード切替スイッチ11dを操作してイオン導入モードを選択すると、制御部16はまず検出用の信号を出力する。ヘッド部12を肌70から離している状態では、ヘッド部12と補助電極部11c間が体を介して閉じた回路となっていないため、通電はない。   When the user operates the mode switch 11d of the operation unit 11b to select the ion introduction mode, the control unit 16 first outputs a detection signal. In the state where the head part 12 is separated from the skin 70, the circuit between the head part 12 and the auxiliary electrode part 11c is not closed with the body interposed therebetween, so there is no energization.

使用者が本体部11を動かしてヘッド部12を多孔質被覆体13を介し肌70に密着させると、体及び多孔質被覆体13中の化粧水を介した通電が可能となり、出力された検出用の信号の受信によりこの状態を検出すると、制御部16は前記クレンジングの場合とは逆極性となる、イオン導入に係る通電状態に移行し、周期の短いパルス波形をなす通電をヘッド部12と補助電極部11c間で実行し、多孔質被覆体13を流れる電流で化粧水中のイオン性の有効成分(プロビタミンCなど)を肌側へ移行させ、電流によりイオンが浸透しやすい状態となっている肌内に、有効成分が速やかに浸透する。クレンジングの場合と同様、肌70のうち鼻と頬の境界部分などの肌の凹状の隅部についても、ヘッド部12における頂面横縁部12dの曲率の大きい丸み面取り形状部分を、その表面の多孔質被覆体13を介して確実に当接させることができ、偏りなくイオン導入を行うことができる。   When the user moves the main body part 11 to bring the head part 12 into close contact with the skin 70 via the porous covering 13, the energization via the body and the lotion in the porous covering 13 becomes possible, and the output detection When this state is detected by receiving a signal for use, the control unit 16 shifts to an energization state related to ion introduction, which has a polarity opposite to that in the cleansing case, and performs energization with a short-period pulse waveform with the head unit 12. It is executed between the auxiliary electrode portions 11c, and the ionic active ingredient (such as provitamin C) in the skin lotion is transferred to the skin side with the current flowing through the porous covering 13, and the ions are easily penetrated by the current. The active ingredient penetrates quickly into the skin. As in the case of cleansing, the rounded chamfered shape portion having a large curvature of the top side lateral edge portion 12d of the head portion 12 is also formed on the surface of the concave corner portion of the skin such as the boundary between the nose and cheeks of the skin 70. It can be made to contact reliably through the porous coating 13, and ion introduction can be performed evenly.

このイオン導入モードにおいても、通電がヘッド部12を多孔質被覆体13を介し肌70に密着させている間、低周波に対応する周期で繰返されることとなり、全体の通電波形は、低周波の波形にこれより高い周波数のパルス波形が重畳されたものとなる。   Also in this ion introduction mode, the energization is repeated at a cycle corresponding to the low frequency while the head portion 12 is in close contact with the skin 70 via the porous covering 13, and the entire energization waveform is low frequency. A pulse waveform having a higher frequency is superimposed on the waveform.

多孔質被覆体13を肌70に当接させたままヘッド部12を肌上で少しずつ移動させると、通電状態のままイオン導入の対象位置を変えられるが、ヘッド部12がその頂面近傍で本体部11からは離れた高い位置の支点部12fを中心として傾動可能とされていることで、クレンジングの場合と同様、肌からヘッド部12に加わる反力はヘッド部12の頂面を肌に正対させるように作用し、ヘッド部12の頂面を肌に沿わせた状態が常に得られ、多孔質被覆体13を確実に肌に当接させることができ、ヘッド部を静止させた状態と変わりなくイオン導入の効果を発揮させられる。   If the head portion 12 is moved little by little on the skin while the porous covering 13 is in contact with the skin 70, the target position for ion introduction can be changed while the energized state is reached. Since it is tiltable about a fulcrum part 12f at a high position away from the main body part 11, the reaction force applied from the skin to the head part 12 is applied to the skin on the top surface of the head part 12 as in the case of cleansing. A state in which the top surface of the head portion 12 is kept in line with the skin, acting so as to face each other, the porous covering 13 can be surely brought into contact with the skin, and the head portion is stationary The effect of ion introduction can be demonstrated as ever.

イオン導入を中断したり導入位置を大きく変えるために、ヘッド部12を肌70から離すと、通電に伴うパルスが他方の電極で検出できなくなることで、制御部16は肌からヘッド部12が離されたと判別し、イオン導入に係る通電を停止させる。このように通電を停止している場合には、検出用の信号を再び出力する。そして、再び、ヘッド部12を多孔質被覆体13を介し肌70に密着させると、検出用の信号の受信により通電可能状態を検出することができ、制御部16はイオン導入に係る通電状態に移行し、通電を再開する。イオン導入を完全に終える場合は、使用者が操作部11bで動作モードを他に切替えるか電源をOFF状態とすればよい。   If the head part 12 is separated from the skin 70 in order to interrupt ion introduction or greatly change the introduction position, a pulse accompanying energization cannot be detected by the other electrode, so that the control part 16 separates the head part 12 from the skin. It is determined that the current has been applied, and the energization related to the ion introduction is stopped. When the energization is stopped in this way, the detection signal is output again. When the head unit 12 is brought into close contact with the skin 70 via the porous covering 13 again, the energizable state can be detected by receiving a detection signal, and the control unit 16 enters the energized state related to ion introduction. Move on and resume energization. When ion introduction is completed completely, the user may switch the operation mode to another by using the operation unit 11b or turn off the power.

このイオン導入モードの終了後は、保持部15を本体部11の電極部近傍部分周囲位置からヘッド部12の正面側へ傾動させて本体部11から突出した状態とし、保持状態を解除された多孔質被覆体13を取外し、必要に応じてヘッド部12を清浄化すればよい。   After completion of this ion introduction mode, the holding part 15 is tilted from the peripheral position of the electrode part vicinity of the main body part 11 to the front side of the head part 12 so as to protrude from the main body part 11, and the porous state released from the holding state. The quality covering 13 may be removed and the head portion 12 may be cleaned as necessary.

マッサージやリフティングといった肌への通電を実行する場合には、多孔質被覆体13を用いず、保持部15を本体部11の正面側に重ね合せて、ヘッド部12を肌に当接させる際に保持部15が障害物とならない状態とする。同時に、肌には必要に応じ化粧水や乳液等を付けてなじませた状態とする。   When energizing the skin such as massage or lifting, the porous cover 13 is not used and the holding part 15 is overlapped with the front side of the main body part 11 to bring the head part 12 into contact with the skin. It is assumed that the holding unit 15 does not become an obstacle. At the same time, apply a lotion or milky lotion to the skin as needed.

使用者が操作部11bのモード切替スイッチ11dを操作してマッサージモードまたはリフティングモードを選択すると、制御部16はまず検出用の信号を出力する。ヘッド部12を肌から離している状態では、ヘッド部12と補助電極部11c間が体を介して閉じた回路となっていないため、通電はない。   When the user operates the mode switch 11d of the operation unit 11b to select the massage mode or the lifting mode, the control unit 16 first outputs a detection signal. In a state in which the head part 12 is separated from the skin, there is no energization because the circuit between the head part 12 and the auxiliary electrode part 11c is not closed via the body.

使用者が本体部11を動かしてヘッド部12を肌70に密着させると、体を介した通電が可能となり、出力された検出用の信号の受信によりこの状態を検出すると、制御部16はマッサージやリフティングに係る通電状態に移行し、マッサージモードの場合、制御部16は、正極性と負極性の各パルスが所定の休止時間を挟んで同じパルス幅で交互に現れる低周波の波形となる通電をヘッド部12と補助電極部11c間で実行し、ヘッド部12と補助電極部11c間において体を介した通電状態となり、肌70に低周波の通電がなされ、肌70を活性化してマッサージ効果を与え、血行を促進することとなる。   When the user moves the main body part 11 to bring the head part 12 into close contact with the skin 70, energization through the body becomes possible, and when this state is detected by receiving the output detection signal, the control part 16 massages. In the massage mode, the controller 16 switches the positive and negative pulses to a low-frequency waveform that alternately appears with the same pulse width with a predetermined pause time in between. Is performed between the head portion 12 and the auxiliary electrode portion 11c, and the body 70 is energized between the head portion 12 and the auxiliary electrode portion 11c. The skin 70 is energized at a low frequency, and the skin 70 is activated to have a massage effect. Will promote blood circulation.

また、リフティングモードの場合、制御部16は、正極性と負極性の各パルスが所定の休止時間を挟んで同じパルス幅で交互に現れる、マッサージモードより低い周波数の波形となる通電を実行し、ヘッド部12と補助電極部11c間で体を介した通電状態となり、肌70に低周波の通電がなされ、肌70への有効成分の浸透を促すと共に、肌に張りを与えて引上げるリフティングの効果を与えることとなる。   Further, in the lifting mode, the control unit 16 executes energization with a waveform having a frequency lower than that of the massage mode, in which the positive and negative pulses alternately appear with the same pulse width across a predetermined pause time, The head portion 12 and the auxiliary electrode portion 11c are energized through the body, the skin 70 is energized at a low frequency, promotes penetration of the active ingredient into the skin 70, and lifts and lifts the skin. It will give an effect.

ヘッド部12を肌70に当接させたまま肌上で少しずつ移動させると、通電の対象位置を変えられるが、ヘッド部12がその頂面近傍で本体部11からは離れた高い位置の支点部12fを中心として傾動可能とされていることで、クレンジングやイオン導入の場合と同様、肌からヘッド部12に加わる反力はヘッド部12の頂面を肌に正対させるように作用し、ヘッド部12の頂面を肌に沿わせた状態が常に得られ、ヘッド部12を確実に肌に当接させることができ、ヘッド部を静止させた状態と変わりなく通電に伴う各種効果を発揮させられる。   When the head portion 12 is moved little by little on the skin while being in contact with the skin 70, the target position of energization can be changed. However, the head portion 12 is a fulcrum at a high position away from the main body portion 11 near the top surface. Since it is possible to tilt around the portion 12f, the reaction force applied from the skin to the head portion 12 acts so that the top surface of the head portion 12 faces the skin, as in the case of cleansing and ion introduction, A state in which the top surface of the head portion 12 is kept along the skin is always obtained, the head portion 12 can be surely brought into contact with the skin, and various effects associated with energization are exhibited as in the state where the head portion is stationary. Be made.

通電を中断したり通電位置を変えるために、ヘッド部12を肌70から離すと、通電に伴うパルスが他方の電極で検出できなくなることで、制御部16は肌からヘッド部12が離されたと判別し、マッサージやリフティングに係る通電を停止させる。このように通電を停止している場合には、検出用の信号を再び出力する。そして、再び、ヘッド部12を肌70に密着させると、検出用の信号の受信により通電可能状態を検出することができ、制御部16はマッサージやリフティングに係る通電状態に移行し、通電を再開する。さらに使用者が操作部11bで動作モードを他に切替えるか電源をOFF状態とすれば、通電は完全に終了となる。   When the head unit 12 is separated from the skin 70 in order to interrupt energization or change the energization position, a pulse accompanying the energization cannot be detected by the other electrode, so that the control unit 16 has separated the head unit 12 from the skin. Determine and stop energization related to massage and lifting. When the energization is stopped in this way, the detection signal is output again. When the head unit 12 is brought into close contact with the skin 70 again, the energized state can be detected by receiving a detection signal, and the control unit 16 shifts to an energized state related to massage or lifting and resumes energization. To do. Further, when the user switches the operation mode to another one by the operation unit 11b or turns off the power, the energization is completely terminated.

このように、本実施形態に係る美容装置は、略楕円錐台状のヘッド部12を本体部11に弾性支持された状態とすると共に本体部11に対し傾動可能として、ヘッド部12を使用者の肌70に当接させると、本体部11が少し動いて肌70との位置関係が変化したとしても、ヘッド部12は本体部11に対して相対的に変位しつつ、肌70に対しては適度な接触状態を維持することから、ヘッド部12が過剰な押付け状態とならず、肌70とヘッド部12との摩擦を抑えて、肌70に対しヘッド部12を移動させる際にヘッド部12が肌70に引っかかったり、ヘッド部12が肌70を擦ったりしにくい状態が得られ、肌70への負担を軽減できる。また、クレンジングやイオン導入等の対象箇所の肌70のうち、例えば鼻の側面部分など、ヘッド部12の頂面12aを近接させにくい箇所に対しては、略楕円錐台状のヘッド部12における側面12bを当接させることができ、使用者はヘッド部12各部を有効に活用して本体部11を無理な姿勢で保持したり持替えたりせずに済み、使い勝手の点で優れる。   As described above, in the beauty device according to the present embodiment, the substantially elliptic frustum-shaped head portion 12 is elastically supported by the main body portion 11 and can be tilted with respect to the main body portion 11. Even if the body part 11 moves slightly and the positional relationship with the skin 70 changes, the head part 12 is displaced relative to the body part 11 while the body part 11 moves slightly. Maintains an appropriate contact state, the head portion 12 is not excessively pressed, and the head portion 12 is moved when the head portion 12 is moved relative to the skin 70 while suppressing friction between the skin 70 and the head portion 12. The state where 12 is caught on the skin 70 or the head part 12 is difficult to rub the skin 70 is obtained, and the burden on the skin 70 can be reduced. In addition, in the skin 70 of the target portion such as cleansing or ion introduction, for example, a portion where the top surface 12a of the head portion 12 is difficult to approach, such as a side portion of the nose, in the head portion 12 having a substantially elliptic frustum shape. The side surface 12b can be brought into contact with each other, and the user can effectively use each part of the head part 12 to avoid holding or changing the main body part 11 in an unreasonable posture, which is excellent in terms of usability.

なお、前記実施形態に係る美容装置において、ヘッド部12の傾斜した側面は断面形状が直線状となる単純な楕円錐面として形成される構成としているが、これに限らず、ヘッド部の側面形状を、ヘッド部の突出方向中間位置でヘッド部内側に向かって凹んだ丸みのある曲面、例えば、図11に示すように、断面形状が円弧状となる曲面、として形成する構成とすることもでき、側面19bの凹状の丸みが鼻側面等の肌70の丸みを帯びた立体形状に対応できるなど(図12参照)、フィット性を高められ、ヘッド部19と肌70との接触面積を十分に確保して肌への美容効果をより効率よく与えられる。   In the beauty device according to the embodiment, the inclined side surface of the head unit 12 is formed as a simple elliptical conical surface having a linear cross-sectional shape. May be formed as a rounded curved surface that is recessed toward the inside of the head portion at an intermediate position in the protruding direction of the head portion, for example, a curved surface having a circular cross section as shown in FIG. Further, the concave roundness of the side surface 19b can correspond to the rounded three-dimensional shape of the skin 70 such as the nose side surface (see FIG. 12), etc., so that the fit can be enhanced and the contact area between the head portion 19 and the skin 70 is sufficient. It can be ensured and the beauty effect on the skin can be given more efficiently.

また、前記実施形態に係る美容装置において、ヘッド部12は頂面12aに近い裏面中央の支点部12fで、支持軸部14aの先端と摺動可能に当接して、支持軸部14a及び本体部11に対し傾動可能とされる構成としているが、この他、ヘッド部における支点部位置で各方向への傾動の自由度を有する継手を形成しつつ、ヘッド部と支持軸部とが係合連結されることで、ヘッド部が支持軸部及び本体部に対し傾動可能とされる構成とすることもでき、この場合、ヘッド部が支持軸部と連結して一体化し、支持軸部と共に本体部に対する進退移動範囲が拘束されることから、本体部からヘッド部が離脱しないようにヘッド部における錐台底面側の縁部を鍔状に形成したりする必要はない。   In the beauty device according to the embodiment, the head portion 12 is a fulcrum portion 12f at the center of the back surface near the top surface 12a, and slidably contacts the tip of the support shaft portion 14a, thereby supporting the support shaft portion 14a and the main body portion. In addition to this, the head portion and the support shaft portion are engaged and connected while forming a joint having a degree of freedom of tilting in each direction at the fulcrum portion position in the head portion. In this case, the head portion can be configured to be tiltable with respect to the support shaft portion and the main body portion. In this case, the head portion is connected and integrated with the support shaft portion, and the main body portion together with the support shaft portion. Therefore, it is not necessary to form the edge portion of the head portion on the bottom surface side of the frustum in a bowl shape so that the head portion is not detached from the main body portion.

(本発明の参考となる第2の実施形態)
前記第1の実施形態に係る美容装置において、保持部15は本体部11に対し傾動可能に取付けられて常に一体で取扱われる構成としているが、これに限らず、ヘッド部に沿わせた多孔質被覆体の周縁部を押えるなどして保持できるものであれば、保持部を本体部とは別体として本体部に対し着脱可能にする構造でもよく、例えば、第2の実施形態として、図13及び図14に示すように、保持部25を本体部21正面側に着脱可能なカバー状とし、且つこの保持部25の本体部21へ取付ける向きを使用時と使用していない収納時とで変更可能にする構成とすることもできる。
(Second embodiment for reference of the present invention)
In the beauty device according to the first embodiment, the holding portion 15 is attached to the main body portion 11 so as to be tiltable and is always handled integrally. However, the present invention is not limited to this, and the porous portion along the head portion is used. As long as the peripheral portion of the covering body can be pressed and held, the holding portion may be separated from the main body portion and detachable from the main body portion. For example, as a second embodiment, FIG. And as shown in FIG. 14, the holding | maintenance part 25 is made into the cover shape which can be attached or detached on the front side of the main-body part 21, and the direction attached to the main-body part 21 of this holding | maintenance part 25 is changed with use at the time of use. It can also be set as the structure which enables.

この場合、保持部25は、ヘッド部22を露出させるための開口孔25a以外は、長手方向の中心部を挟んで対称形状となっており、使用時には保持部22の開口孔25aがヘッド部22側に位置するようにして、開口孔25aにヘッド部22を相対的に進入させつつ、このヘッド部22のある本体部21の正面側に保持部25を重ね合せて、保持部22を本体部21に取付け一体化する。多孔質被覆体を用いる際は、多孔質被覆体をヘッド部22正面に位置させてから保持部25を重ね、保持部25と本体部21との間に多孔質被覆体の周縁部分を挟んで、多孔質被覆体がヘッド部22表面に保持、固定された状態とすることができる。   In this case, the holding portion 25 is symmetrical with respect to the central portion in the longitudinal direction except for the opening hole 25a for exposing the head portion 22, and the opening hole 25a of the holding portion 22 is used when the head portion 22 is used. The holding part 25 is overlapped on the front side of the main body part 21 with the head part 22 while the head part 22 relatively enters the opening hole 25a so that the holding part 22 is placed on the main body part. 21 is attached and integrated. When using the porous covering, the holding portion 25 is overlapped after the porous covering is positioned in front of the head portion 22, and the peripheral portion of the porous covering is sandwiched between the holding portion 25 and the main body portion 21. The porous coating can be held and fixed on the surface of the head portion 22.

一方、使用していない収納時には、保持部22の開口孔25aをヘッド部22から離れた側として、保持部25を本体部21の正面側に重ね合せ、保持部22を本体部21に取付け一体化すると(図14(B)参照)、前記第1の実施形態同様に弾性支持されているヘッド部22が保持部25に押されて沈み込み、保持部25の内側に無理なく収納された状態が得られる。   On the other hand, when the storage unit is not in use, the opening 25a of the holding part 22 is set to the side away from the head part 22, and the holding part 25 is superimposed on the front side of the main body part 21, and the holding part 22 is attached to the main body part 21 and integrated. (See FIG. 14B), the head portion 22 that is elastically supported as in the first embodiment is pushed down by the holding portion 25 and sinks into the holding portion 25 without difficulty. Is obtained.

美容装置2において弾性支持され可動であるヘッド部22が、非使用状態で保持部25の内側に収納される構成とすることで、ヘッド部に誤って強い外力が加わり、ヘッド部が破損するような事態を回避することができる。また、多孔質被覆体の使用、不使用に関わりなく、保持部25を本体部21に取付け一体化して使用に供することから、保持部25を取外したまま放置して紛失する危険性を小さくできる。   The head unit 22 that is elastically supported and movable in the beauty device 2 is configured to be housed inside the holding unit 25 in a non-use state, so that a strong external force is applied to the head unit accidentally and the head unit is damaged. Can be avoided. In addition, regardless of the use or non-use of the porous coating, the holding part 25 is attached to the main body part 21 and integrated for use. Therefore, the risk of leaving the holding part 25 unattended and losing it can be reduced. .

なお、上記の場合のように、保持部を本体部に対し着脱可能とする構成では、保持部は弾性変形可能な材質製として、若干の変形を伴いつつ本体部に係合して取付けられるようにするのが、構造を簡略にできる点で好ましい。また、本体部に対し着脱可能な保持部は、本体部の全体を覆う大きさとされる必要はなく、ヘッド部表面に多孔質被覆体を保持可能なものであれば、本体部のヘッド部近傍にのみ取付けられる大きさでも問題なく、且つ、クレンジングやイオン導入など、多孔質被覆体を用いる場合のみ本体部に取付けて多孔質被覆体を保持可能にするものとしてもかまわない。   In addition, in the configuration in which the holding portion is detachable from the main body as in the above case, the holding portion is made of an elastically deformable material so that the holding portion can be engaged with and attached to the main body with some deformation. This is preferable in that the structure can be simplified. In addition, the holding part that can be attached to and detached from the main body part does not need to be sized to cover the whole main body part. If the porous covering can be held on the head part surface, the vicinity of the head part of the main body part There is no problem even if the size can be attached only to the body, and it may be attached to the main body only when the porous covering is used, such as cleansing or ion introduction, so that the porous covering can be held.

前記第1の実施形態に係る美容装置において、ヘッド部12は略楕円形の頂面12aと傾斜した側面12bとを有する略楕円錐台形状とされてなる構成としているが、これに限らず、ヘッド部を例えば、横断面が円形となる円錐台、横断面が長円形となる長円錐台、あるいは、横断面が多角形となる角錐台など、他の錐台形状として形成する構成とすることもできる。
( Third embodiment of the present invention)
In the beauty device according to the first embodiment, the head unit 12 is configured to have a substantially elliptic frustum shape having a substantially elliptical top surface 12a and an inclined side surface 12b. For example, the head portion may be formed as another frustum shape such as a truncated cone having a circular cross section, a long truncated cone having a circular cross section, or a truncated pyramid having a polygonal cross section. You can also.

特に、本発明の実施形態として、図15に示すように、ヘッド部32を変形した略角錐台形状とした場合、ヘッド部縦方向寸法を他の円錐台形等の場合と同様に確保しつつ横方向寸法を狭小化でき、縦方向寸法を十分確保することで、ヘッド部32を横方向に移動させて行うクレンジングやイオン導入等の効率を維持しつつ、装置の小型化、スリム化が図れる。また、ヘッド部32の頂面を緩やかな曲面状とすると共に、縦方向の両端部の長さをそれぞれ異ならせることで、指状の接触感が得られることとなり、ヘッド部32を直接又は多孔質被覆体を介して肌に接触させた際の違和感を軽減できる。 In particular, in the embodiment of the present invention , as shown in FIG. 15, when the head portion 32 has a substantially truncated pyramid shape, the horizontal length of the head portion is ensured in the same manner as in the case of other truncated cone shapes. The direction dimension can be narrowed, and by sufficiently securing the vertical dimension, the apparatus can be reduced in size and slim while maintaining the efficiency of cleansing and ion introduction performed by moving the head portion 32 in the lateral direction. Further, by making the top surface of the head portion 32 a gentle curved surface and making the lengths of both ends in the vertical direction different from each other, a finger-like contact feeling can be obtained, so that the head portion 32 is directly or porous. It is possible to reduce a sense of incongruity when contacting the skin through the quality covering.

加えて、ヘッド部32の頂面32aの縦縁部32c、32dのうち、一方の縦縁部32cと側面32bとの交差部における丸み面取り形状の曲率を、他方の縦縁部32dと側面32bとの交差部における丸み面取り形状及び横縁部32eと側面32bとの交差部の丸み面取り形状の各曲率に対し小さくしている。例えば、鼻と頬の境界部分などの肌の凹状の隅部に対しては、ヘッド部32の横縁部32e等のより曲率の大きい丸み面取り形状部分が、直接又は多孔質被覆体を介して、隅部の奥まで達して確実に当接することができ、こうした隅部に偏りなくクレンジングやイオン導入を行うことができる。また、縦縁部32cにおける曲率の小さい丸み面取り形状部分は、ヘッド部32の頂面32aを肌に当接させる際の接触を滑らかなものとして、感触を向上させることができる。   In addition, of the vertical edge portions 32c and 32d of the top surface 32a of the head portion 32, the curvature of the rounded chamfered shape at the intersection between the one vertical edge portion 32c and the side surface 32b is set as the other vertical edge portion 32d and the side surface 32b. It is made small with respect to each curvature of the round chamfering shape in the intersection part and the round chamfering shape in the intersection part of the horizontal edge part 32e and the side surface 32b. For example, with respect to the concave corners of the skin such as the boundary between the nose and the cheek, a rounded chamfered portion having a larger curvature such as the lateral edge portion 32e of the head portion 32 is directly or via a porous covering. Therefore, it can reach the back of the corner and reliably come into contact, and cleansing and ion introduction can be performed without unevenness in such a corner. Further, the round chamfered shape portion having a small curvature at the vertical edge portion 32c can improve the feel by making the contact when the top surface 32a of the head portion 32 abuts the skin smooth.

(本発明の参考となる第4の実施形態)
前記第1の実施形態に係る美容装置において、ヘッド部12の頂面12aは緩やかな曲面とされて、特に凹凸を設けない構成としているが、これに限らず、第4の実施形態として、図16に示すように、ヘッド部42の頂面42aに、開口部分が円形となる小さな凹部42cを複数設ける構成とすることもできる。凹部42cの底面はその中央部で最も深くなる曲面状としており、肌70に化粧水80を塗布した状態でヘッド部42の頂面42aを肌70に直接当てる場合、肌70と接触せず圧力のかからない凹部42cに化粧水80を保持でき(図17参照)、ヘッド部42と肌70との間に化粧水80を位置させたまま通電を行える。
(Fourth embodiment for reference of the present invention)
In the beauty device according to the first embodiment, the top surface 12a of the head portion 12 is a gently curved surface and is not particularly provided with irregularities. However, the present invention is not limited to this, and as a fourth embodiment, FIG. As shown in FIG. 16, a plurality of small concave portions 42 c whose opening portions are circular can be provided on the top surface 42 a of the head portion 42. The bottom surface of the recess 42c has a curved surface that is deepest at the center, and when the top surface 42a of the head part 42 is directly applied to the skin 70 with the skin lotion 80 applied to the skin 70, the pressure does not contact the skin 70. The lotion 80 can be held in the concave portion 42 c that is not applied (see FIG. 17), and energization can be performed while the lotion 80 is located between the head portion 42 and the skin 70.

特に、マッサージやリフティングといった肌への通電刺激を、化粧水や乳液等を肌に付けた状態で実行する場合、肌に付けられた化粧水等が、肌と接触せず圧力のかからないこの凹部42cに保持されて流れ落ちにくくなり、ヘッド部42と肌70との間に化粧水等を位置させた状態を維持できることとなる。こうして、従来は肌とヘッド部との接触に伴って押出され流れ落ちてしまっていた化粧水等を、無駄に消費することなく肌上でその効果を適切に発揮させることができる。   In particular, when energization stimulation to the skin such as massage or lifting is performed in a state where skin lotion or milky lotion is applied to the skin, the recess 42c where the skin lotion applied to the skin does not contact the skin and is not pressurized. Thus, it is difficult for the liquid to flow down, and the state in which the lotion or the like is positioned between the head portion 42 and the skin 70 can be maintained. Thus, it is possible to appropriately exert the effect on the skin without wastefully consuming the lotion or the like that has been extruded and flowed down with the contact between the skin and the head portion.

なお、ヘッド部頂面に複数設ける凹部の開口形状は、図16に示すようないずれも径の等しい円形状として形成する構成に限られるものではなく、この他、図18に示すように、頂面42aに複数設けた凹部42dの円形状が、頂面42aの中央部から外方に進むに従って径が小さくなるようにしたり、図19に示すように、凹部42eを格子状に配置形成するなど、凹部の開口形状を変化させる構成とすることもできる。また、凹部の深さについても、図16や図18に示すように、凹部42c、42dの深さが頂面42aの中央部から外方に進むに従って大きくなるようにするなど、変化させる構成とすることもできる。   In addition, the opening shape of the plurality of recesses provided on the top surface of the head portion is not limited to the configuration in which all of them are formed as a circular shape having the same diameter as shown in FIG. 16, but in addition, as shown in FIG. The circular shape of the plurality of concave portions 42d provided on the surface 42a is such that the diameter decreases as it progresses outward from the central portion of the top surface 42a, or the concave portions 42e are arranged and formed in a lattice shape as shown in FIG. Further, it is possible to adopt a configuration in which the opening shape of the recess is changed. Further, as shown in FIG. 16 and FIG. 18, the depth of the recesses is changed such that the depths of the recesses 42c and 42d increase from the central portion of the top surface 42a to the outside. You can also

さらに、頂面に凹部を設ける他に、図20に示すように、側面42bに凹部42fを設けて、ヘッド部42の正面から見た輪郭形状がくびれを有するものとなる構成としたり、頂面に設けたような複数の小さな凹部を側面に設ける構成としたりすることもできる。頂面の場合と同様、側面42bを肌に当接させる際には、肌と接触せず圧力のかからない凹部42fが化粧水を保持し、ヘッド部42と肌との間に化粧水を介在させた状態で肌への通電が行える。   Furthermore, in addition to providing a concave portion on the top surface, as shown in FIG. 20, a concave portion 42f is provided on the side surface 42b so that the contour shape viewed from the front of the head portion 42 has a constriction, or the top surface It is also possible to adopt a configuration in which a plurality of small concave portions as provided in the above are provided on the side surface. As in the case of the top surface, when the side surface 42b is brought into contact with the skin, the concave portion 42f that does not come into contact with the skin and is not pressurized holds the lotion, and the lotion is interposed between the head portion 42 and the skin. The skin can be energized in a wet state.

こうしてヘッド部の頂面又は側面に凹部を設ける構成の他に、図21に示すように、ヘッド部42における頂面42aと側面42bのいずれにも凹部42gを設ける構成とすることもでき、ヘッド部42のいずれの位置を肌に当接させた場合でも、凹部42gが化粧水等を保持して、ヘッド部42と肌との間に化粧水等を介在させた状態を維持することができる。   In this way, in addition to the configuration in which the concave portion is provided on the top surface or the side surface of the head portion, as shown in FIG. 21, it is also possible to have a configuration in which the concave portion 42g is provided on either the top surface 42a or the side surface 42b in the head portion 42. Even when any position of the portion 42 is brought into contact with the skin, the concave portion 42g holds the lotion or the like and can maintain the state in which the lotion or the like is interposed between the head portion 42 and the skin. .

このようなヘッド部に設けられる凹部は、肌からの圧力がかからず、肌に付けられた化粧水等を保持できる状態を確保しつつ、表面に付着した汚れを使用後に拭取るなどして清浄とするのが容易にできるよう、凹部開口の大きさを1mm以上とするのが好ましく、また、凹部外縁における凹部と頂面又は側面との交差部を丸み面取り形状として(図17参照)、頂面又は側面と凹部とが滑らかに連続する状態とするのが好ましい。さらに、この凹部は、横へ線状に長く延びた長穴状や、さらに長く連続する溝状となったもの、例えば、図22に示すような頂面42aで連続する凹部42h、42iや、後述する図29に示すような側面52bの凹部52gのような形状でもよいが、その場合は、開口の幅(長手方向と直交する向きの寸法)を1mm以上とするのが好ましい。   The concave part provided in such a head part does not apply pressure from the skin, and wipes off dirt adhered to the surface after use while ensuring a state that can retain the skin lotion attached to the skin. The size of the recess opening is preferably 1 mm or more so that it can be easily cleaned, and the intersection of the recess and the top surface or side surface at the outer edge of the recess is rounded and chamfered (see FIG. 17). It is preferable that the top surface or the side surface and the recess are smoothly continuous. Furthermore, the concave portion has a long hole shape extending linearly to the side or a groove shape that is longer and continuous, for example, concave portions 42h and 42i that are continuous on the top surface 42a as shown in FIG. Although a shape like a concave portion 52g of the side surface 52b as shown in FIG. 29 described later may be used, in that case, the width of the opening (the dimension in the direction orthogonal to the longitudinal direction) is preferably 1 mm or more.

(本発明の参考となる第5の実施形態)
本発明の参考となる第5の実施形態に係る美容装置を前記図23ないし図28に基づいて説明する。
(Fifth embodiment for reference of the present invention)
A beauty apparatus according to a fifth embodiment which is a reference of the present invention will be described with reference to FIGS.

前記各図において本実施形態に係る美容装置5は、前記第1の実施形態同様、本体部11と、ヘッド部52と、ばね14と、補助電極部11cと、保持部55と、制御部16とを備える一方、異なる点として、ヘッド部52が略円錐台形状とされ、本体部11に対し回動可能とされると共に、保持部55がヘッド部52に係合して多孔質被覆体53を保持する構成を有するものである。   In each of the drawings, the beauty device 5 according to the present embodiment is similar to the first embodiment in that the main body unit 11, the head unit 52, the spring 14, the auxiliary electrode unit 11c, the holding unit 55, and the control unit 16 are used. However, as a different point, the head portion 52 has a substantially frustoconical shape and is rotatable with respect to the main body portion 11, and the holding portion 55 engages with the head portion 52 to form a porous covering 53. It has the structure which hold | maintains.

なお、前記制御部16は、前記第1の実施形態と同様のものであり、説明を省略する。また、前記本体部11は、ヘッド部52のある正面側に保持部55が傾動可能として取付けられない点以外は、前記第1の実施形態と同様の構成であり、説明を省略する。   The control unit 16 is the same as that in the first embodiment, and a description thereof will be omitted. Moreover, the said main-body part 11 is the structure similar to the said 1st Embodiment except the point which does not attach the holding | maintenance part 55 to the front side with the head part 52 so that tilting is possible, and abbreviate | omits description.

前記ヘッド部52は、金属等の導電性を有する材質からなり、肌70に面接触可能な緩やかな曲面状の頂面52aと傾斜した側面52bとを有する略円錐台形状とされ、頂面側を先端として本体部11の一端部正面側から突出させて配設される構成である。   The head portion 52 is made of a conductive material such as metal, and has a substantially truncated cone shape having a gently curved top surface 52a capable of surface contact with the skin 70 and an inclined side surface 52b. It is the structure arrange | positioned by making it protrude from the one end part front side of the main-body part 11 by using as a front-end | tip.

このヘッド部52は、円形状の頂面52aにおける本体部11の長手方向の端部となる縦縁部52c、及び本体部11の長手方向と直交する方向の端部となる横縁部52dにおける、それぞれ側面との交差部を丸み面取り形状とされる構成である。そして、横縁部52dと側面との交差部の丸み面取り形状の曲率に対し、縦縁部52cと側面との交差部の丸み面取り形状の曲率が小さく(丸み半径を大きく)されてなる。   The head portion 52 includes a vertical edge portion 52c that is an end portion in the longitudinal direction of the main body portion 11 on the circular top surface 52a, and a horizontal edge portion 52d that is an end portion in a direction orthogonal to the longitudinal direction of the main body portion 11. Each of the intersections with the side surfaces is rounded and chamfered. Then, the curvature of the round chamfered shape at the intersection between the vertical edge 52c and the side surface is made smaller (the radius of the roundness is increased) than the curvature of the rounded chamfered shape at the intersection between the horizontal edge portion 52d and the side surface.

ヘッド部52の側面52bには、開口部分が円形となる小さな凹部52eが、凹部底面をその中央部で最も深くなる曲面状とされて複数設けられる。肌に化粧水を塗布した状態でヘッド部52の側面52bを肌に直接当てる場合、肌と接触せず圧力のかからない凹部52eに化粧水を保持でき、化粧水が流れ落ちにくくなり、ヘッド部52と肌との間に化粧水を位置させたまま通電を行える。このヘッド部側面52bの凹部52eは、多孔質被覆体53を保持する保持部55の係合にも用いられる。   On the side surface 52b of the head portion 52, a plurality of small concave portions 52e having a circular opening portion are provided with the bottom surface of the concave portion having a curved surface shape that is deepest at the central portion. When the face 52b of the head part 52 is directly applied to the skin with the lotion applied to the skin, the lotion can be held in the recess 52e that does not come into contact with the skin and is not pressurized, and the lotion is less likely to flow down. It can be energized with the lotion positioned between the skin. The concave portion 52e of the head portion side surface 52b is also used for engaging the holding portion 55 that holds the porous covering 53.

ヘッド部52の内側には、前記第1の実施形態と同様に、本体部11に対し所定範囲進退可能とされる棒状の支持軸部14aが取付けられ、この支持軸部14aはばね14で本体部11から遠ざかる向きに付勢されている。そして、ヘッド部52は、頂面中心部のちょうど裏側となる内側の支点部52fで支持軸部14aの先端と摺動可能に当接し、この支持軸部14aを介してばね14により本体部11から遠ざかる向きに付勢されつつ弾性支持される。また、ヘッド部52は、支点部52fで支持軸部14aの先端に対し摺動できることで、支持軸部14a及び本体部11に対し傾動可能であることに加え、支点部52fを通る円錐台中心軸周りに回動可能となっている。   Inside the head portion 52, as in the first embodiment, a rod-like support shaft portion 14a that can be advanced and retracted within a predetermined range with respect to the main body portion 11 is attached. It is biased in a direction away from the part 11. The head portion 52 is slidably brought into contact with the tip of the support shaft portion 14a at an inner fulcrum portion 52f that is just behind the center portion of the top surface, and the main body portion 11 is pressed by the spring 14 through the support shaft portion 14a. It is elastically supported while being urged away from it. Further, the head portion 52 is slidable with respect to the tip of the support shaft portion 14a at the fulcrum portion 52f, so that the head portion 52 can be tilted with respect to the support shaft portion 14a and the main body portion 11, and the center of the truncated cone passing through the fulcrum portion 52f. It can be rotated around its axis.

ヘッド部52における錐台底面側の縁部は、他部分より外径を若干大きくした鍔状とされて、本体部11内に収められ、この本体部11におけるヘッド部52を一部収る空隙部分の入口開口部分がヘッド部52の鍔状の縁部より小口径とされることで、前記第1の実施形態と同様、ヘッド部52の本体部11からの離脱が防止される仕組みである。なお、ヘッド部52の本体部11に対する突出方向への移動範囲や、ヘッド部52の支持軸部14aに対する傾動角度範囲は、前記第1の実施形態同様、ヘッド部52の鍔状の縁部が本体部11に拘束されることで制限されるものの、ヘッド部52の錐台底面側の各部外形は円形とされ、またこれを収める本体部11内空隙部分の入口開口部分を含む内周形状も円形とされることで、ヘッド部52の本体部11に対する回動は許容される。   An edge of the head portion 52 on the bottom surface side of the frustum is shaped like a bowl having an outer diameter slightly larger than that of the other portion, and is accommodated in the main body 11, and a gap that partially accommodates the head 52 in the main body 11. Since the inlet opening portion of the portion has a smaller diameter than the flange-like edge of the head portion 52, the head portion 52 is prevented from being detached from the main body portion 11 as in the first embodiment. . Note that the range of movement of the head portion 52 in the protruding direction with respect to the main body portion 11 and the tilt angle range of the head portion 52 with respect to the support shaft portion 14a are the same as those in the first embodiment, but the flange-like edge of the head portion 52 is Although restricted by being constrained by the main body part 11, the outer shape of each part on the bottom surface side of the frustum of the head part 52 is circular, and the inner peripheral shape including the inlet opening part of the inner space part of the main body part 11 that accommodates this is also available. By making it circular, the rotation of the head portion 52 relative to the main body portion 11 is allowed.

また、ヘッド部52は、前記第1の実施形態同様、本体部11内で制御部16と電気的に接続され、把持部11aにある補助電極部11cとの間で使用者の体を介して通電可能とされる構成である。通電については、制御部16によりヘッド部52と補助電極部11c間に電圧が加えられて通電が起こり得る状態とされた上で、電解質成分を含む化粧水等の液剤が含浸した多孔質被覆体53を介して、又は直接、ヘッド部52が肌70に接触し、また補助電極部11cが把持部11aを持つ手と接触すると、ヘッド部52と補助電極部11cとが使用者の体を介して通電状態となる仕組みである。   Similarly to the first embodiment, the head unit 52 is electrically connected to the control unit 16 in the main body unit 11 and is connected to the auxiliary electrode unit 11c in the grip unit 11a via the user's body. This is a configuration that can be energized. For energization, the control unit 16 applies a voltage between the head unit 52 and the auxiliary electrode unit 11c so that energization can occur, and the porous covering is impregnated with a liquid agent such as skin lotion containing an electrolyte component. 53, or directly when the head part 52 contacts the skin 70 and the auxiliary electrode part 11c comes into contact with the hand having the grip part 11a, the head part 52 and the auxiliary electrode part 11c pass through the user's body. It is a mechanism that becomes energized.

前記多孔質被覆体53は、カット綿やコットンパフ等と同様の脱脂等加工した綿繊維を、ヘッド部52の外形に対応した不織シート製の袋状に成形して、ヘッド部52表面に沿ってこれを覆うカバーとして用いるものであり、化粧水等を十分吸収してそのまま保持できる性質を備える。この多孔質被覆体53はヘッド部52の表面をぴったりと覆って本体部11側に大きくはみ出さないことで、多孔質被覆体53はヘッド部52の回動を妨げず、これで覆われた状態でもヘッド部52は本体部11に対し回動可能となっている。   The porous covering 53 is formed on a surface of the head portion 52 by molding cotton fibers processed by degreasing, such as cut cotton and cotton puff, into a non-woven sheet bag shape corresponding to the outer shape of the head portion 52. It is used as a cover that covers this along the surface, and has the property of sufficiently absorbing and retaining the skin lotion. The porous covering 53 covers the surface of the head portion 52 tightly and does not protrude greatly toward the main body portion 11, so that the porous covering 53 is covered with this without disturbing the rotation of the head portion 52. Even in this state, the head portion 52 is rotatable with respect to the main body portion 11.

前記保持部55は、弾性変形可能な材質製の環状体として形成され、中央の開口部分に面する内周の複数箇所にヘッド部側面52bの凹部52eに係合する突起55bを設けられ、多孔質被覆体53を介在させた状態でヘッド部52の側面52bにおける頂面52aから離れた端部寄り位置の外側に、着脱可能に取付けられる構成である。この保持部55中央の開口部分は、ヘッド部52の側面52bよりもわずかに大きな開口形状とされる。   The holding portion 55 is formed as an annular body made of an elastically deformable material, and is provided with protrusions 55b that engage with the concave portions 52e of the head portion side surface 52b at a plurality of locations on the inner periphery facing the central opening portion. The structure is detachably attached to the outside of the side surface 52b of the head portion 52 near the end portion away from the top surface 52a with the quality covering 53 interposed. The opening portion at the center of the holding portion 55 has an opening shape slightly larger than the side surface 52 b of the head portion 52.

ヘッド部52の形状に対応した多孔質被覆体53を装着したヘッド部52に対し、この保持部55をヘッド部52の側面外側に位置させ、保持部55の各突起55bをヘッド部52側の凹部52eに係合させて、保持部55がヘッド部52に取付けられた状態とすると、多孔質被覆体53が保持部55とヘッド部52との間に挟まれて容易に離脱しない状態となり、多孔質被覆体53をヘッド部52表面に保持できる仕組みである。   With respect to the head portion 52 to which the porous covering 53 corresponding to the shape of the head portion 52 is mounted, the holding portion 55 is positioned on the outside of the side surface of the head portion 52, and each protrusion 55b of the holding portion 55 is located on the head portion 52 side. When the holding portion 55 is attached to the head portion 52 by engaging with the recess 52e, the porous covering 53 is sandwiched between the holding portion 55 and the head portion 52 and is not easily detached. In this mechanism, the porous covering 53 can be held on the surface of the head portion 52.

次に、本実施形態に係る美容装置の通電動作状態について説明する。前提として、美容装置5が使用者による操作部11bの電源スイッチ11e操作により起動し、使用者が把持部11aを持ってヘッド部52を使用したい肌部位に向けられる状態にあるものとする。使用者により動作モードが選択入力されれば、制御部16が各動作モードの実行を開始可能な状態とする。   Next, the energization operation state of the beauty device according to the present embodiment will be described. As a premise, it is assumed that the beauty device 5 is activated by the user's operation of the power switch 11e of the operation unit 11b, and the user is in a state where the user holds the grip unit 11a and is directed to the skin site where the head unit 52 is desired to be used. If the operation mode is selected and input by the user, the control unit 16 enters a state in which execution of each operation mode can be started.

クレンジングを行う場合には、まず使用者は、電解質成分を含んだふき取り用化粧水を染みこませた多孔質被覆体53をヘッド部52に装着し、さらに保持部55の開口部分にヘッド部52を相対的に進入させつつ、保持部55をヘッド部52における側面52b外側に位置させ、保持部55の各突起55bをヘッド部側面52bの凹部52eに係合させると、保持部55とヘッド部52との間に多孔質被覆体53が挟まれて、多孔質被覆体53がヘッド部52表面に保持、固定された状態となる(図26参照)。   In the case of cleansing, the user first attaches the porous covering 53 soaked with the wiping lotion containing the electrolyte component to the head portion 52, and further the head portion 52 in the opening portion of the holding portion 55. When the holding portion 55 is positioned outside the side surface 52b of the head portion 52 and the protrusions 55b of the holding portion 55 are engaged with the recess portions 52e of the head portion side surface 52b, the holding portion 55 and the head portion are moved. The porous covering 53 is sandwiched between the head 52 and the porous covering 53 is held and fixed on the surface of the head portion 52 (see FIG. 26).

多孔質被覆体53は、ヘッド部52の外形に対応した形状とされていることで、皺等無く伸びた状態でヘッド部52表面に密着すると共に、この伸びた状態で肌に接触できることとなり、ヘッド部52及び肌との接触面積を無理なく十分に確保できる。   Since the porous covering 53 has a shape corresponding to the outer shape of the head portion 52, the porous covering 53 comes into close contact with the surface of the head portion 52 in a stretched state without any wrinkles, and can contact the skin in the stretched state. The contact area with the head part 52 and the skin can be sufficiently ensured without difficulty.

使用者が操作部11bのモード切替スイッチ11dを操作してクレンジングモードを選択すると、前記第1の実施形態同様、制御部16はまず検出用の信号を出力する。使用者が本体部11を動かしてヘッド部52を多孔質被覆体53を介し肌70に密着させると、体及び多孔質被覆体53中の化粧水を介した通電が可能となり、出力された検出用の信号の受信によりこの状態を検出すると、制御部16はクレンジングに係る通電状態に移行する。   When the user operates the mode selector switch 11d of the operation unit 11b to select the cleansing mode, the control unit 16 first outputs a detection signal as in the first embodiment. When the user moves the main body portion 11 to bring the head portion 52 into close contact with the skin 70 via the porous covering 53, energization via the body and the skin lotion in the porous covering 53 becomes possible, and the output detection is performed. When this state is detected by receiving a signal for use, the control unit 16 shifts to an energized state related to cleansing.

すなわち、制御部16は、周期の短いパルス波形をなす通電をヘッド部52と補助電極部11c間で実行し、皮膚表面や内部の帯電した微細な汚れ成分がヘッド部52に引寄せられて肌側から多孔質被覆体53側に移行し、多孔質被覆体53に汚れ成分が取込まれる状態となることで、肌の汚れを吸引除去できる。   That is, the control unit 16 performs energization having a short-cycle pulse waveform between the head unit 52 and the auxiliary electrode unit 11c, and the charged fine dirt components on the skin surface and inside are attracted to the head unit 52 and the skin. By moving from the side to the porous covering 53 side and the dirt component is taken into the porous covering 53, the dirt on the skin can be removed by suction.

こうしてヘッド部52を多孔質被覆体53を介し肌70に密着させている状態において、ヘッド部52は本体部11に対し弾性支持されており且つ傾動可能であることで、使用者の手による本体部11の支持状態が若干変化したとしても、ヘッド部52と肌との位置関係は維持され、ヘッド部表面の多孔質被覆体53は肌への接触圧力を適正としつつ、無理なく肌に当接でき(図27(A)参照)、使用者はヘッド部52を肌に当接させるように本体部11を注意深く微調整しながら支持する必要はない。   Thus, in a state where the head portion 52 is in close contact with the skin 70 via the porous covering 53, the head portion 52 is elastically supported with respect to the main body portion 11 and can be tilted. Even if the support state of the part 11 is slightly changed, the positional relationship between the head part 52 and the skin is maintained, and the porous covering 53 on the surface of the head part is applied to the skin without difficulty while making the contact pressure to the skin appropriate. The user does not need to support the main body portion 11 with careful fine adjustment so that the head portion 52 is brought into contact with the skin.

クレンジング対象の肌70のうち、鼻の側面部分など、ヘッド部52の頂面52aを近接させにくい箇所については、ヘッド部52の側面52bを使用でき、この側面52bを多孔質被覆体53を介してこうした箇所の肌70に当接させることで、使用者は本体部11を無理な姿勢で保持したり持替えたりせずに済む。   Of the skin 70 to be cleansed, the side surface 52 b of the head portion 52 can be used for a portion where the top surface 52 a of the head portion 52 is difficult to approach, such as the side surface portion of the nose, and this side surface 52 b is interposed via the porous covering 53. By contacting the skin 70 at such a location, the user does not have to hold or change the main body 11 in an unreasonable posture.

また、鼻と頬の境界部分など凹状の隅部となっている箇所については、ヘッド部52の頂面52aにおける横縁部52dの曲率の大きい丸み面取り形状部分を使用することで、多孔質被覆体53を介して確実にヘッド部52を肌70の隅部へ当接させることができ、偏りなくクレンジングを行うことができる。   Further, for a portion having a concave corner such as a boundary portion between the nose and cheek, a porous chamfered shape portion having a large curvature of the lateral edge portion 52d of the top surface 52a of the head portion 52 is used. The head portion 52 can be reliably brought into contact with the corner portion of the skin 70 through the body 53, and cleansing can be performed without deviation.

多孔質被覆体53を肌70に当接させたままヘッド部52を肌上で少しずつ移動させると、通電状態のまま汚れ除去の対象位置を変えられる。この際、多孔質被覆体53を介してヘッド部52における頂面52aの中央を除く端部や側面52bが肌に当接していた場合、ヘッド部52は移動に伴って肌70から受ける摩擦抵抗力に伴って生じる支点部52f周りの回転モーメントにより、支点部52fを中心に回動し、多孔質被覆体53は肌70に対し転がり接触状態となる(図28参照)。   When the head portion 52 is moved little by little on the skin while the porous covering 53 is in contact with the skin 70, the target position of dirt removal can be changed while being energized. At this time, when the end portion and the side surface 52b except for the center of the top surface 52a of the head portion 52 are in contact with the skin through the porous covering 53, the head portion 52 receives frictional resistance from the skin 70 as it moves. Due to the rotational moment generated around the fulcrum part 52f due to the force, the fulcrum part 52f rotates around the fulcrum part 52f, and the porous covering 53 is brought into a rolling contact with the skin 70 (see FIG. 28).

こうして、ヘッド部52や多孔質被覆体53の肌への引っかかりや擦れを生じさせることなく、多孔質被覆体53を確実に肌に当接させることができ、ヘッド部52を移動させながらでも肌に負担をかけずにクレンジングの効果を発揮させられる。また、多孔質被覆体53が肌に対し転がり接触して接触位置を変化させていくことで、多孔質被覆体53の同じ箇所が集中的に使用されて除去した汚れ成分が過度に集積する状態とならず、多孔質被覆体53の清浄な部位を最大限に使用して、多孔質被覆体53への汚れ成分の取込み能力を適切に発揮させられる。   Thus, the porous covering 53 can be reliably brought into contact with the skin without causing the head 52 or the porous covering 53 to be caught or rubbed against the skin, and the skin can be moved even while the head 52 is moved. The effect of cleansing can be demonstrated without putting a burden on. In addition, the porous covering 53 is rolled and contacted with the skin to change the contact position, so that the same portion of the porous covering 53 is intensively used and the removed dirt component is excessively accumulated. In other words, the clean portion of the porous covering 53 is used to the maximum, and the ability to take in the dirt component into the porous covering 53 can be appropriately exhibited.

なお、ヘッド部52を肌上で移動させる際に、多孔質被覆体53を介してヘッド部52における頂面52aの中央を含む広い領域が肌に当接していた場合、ヘッド部52の回動による多孔質被覆体53の転がり接触は生じない。ただこの場合も、ヘッド部52がその頂面近傍で本体部11からは離れた高い位置の支点部52fを中心として傾動可能とされていることで、前記第1の実施形態同様、肌70からヘッド部52に加わる反力はヘッド部52の頂面を肌70に正対させるように作用し、ヘッド部52の頂面52aを肌70に沿わせた状態が常に得られ、ヘッド部52や多孔質被覆体53の肌70への引っかかりを防ぎつつ、多孔質被覆体53を確実に肌に当接させることができ、ヘッド部を静止させた状態と変わりなくクレンジングの効果を発揮させられる。   In addition, when moving the head part 52 on the skin, if a wide area including the center of the top surface 52a in the head part 52 is in contact with the skin via the porous covering 53, the rotation of the head part 52 is performed. The rolling contact of the porous covering 53 due to does not occur. However, also in this case, the head portion 52 can be tilted around the fulcrum portion 52f at a high position in the vicinity of the top surface and away from the main body portion 11, so that the skin portion 70 can be separated from the skin 70 as in the first embodiment. The reaction force applied to the head portion 52 acts so that the top surface of the head portion 52 faces the skin 70, and a state in which the top surface 52a of the head portion 52 is along the skin 70 is always obtained. While preventing the porous covering 53 from being caught on the skin 70, the porous covering 53 can be reliably brought into contact with the skin, and the cleansing effect can be exhibited as in the state where the head portion is stationary.

クレンジング動作を中断したり除去位置を変えるために、ヘッド部52を肌70から離すと、前記第1の実施形態同様、制御部16は肌からヘッド部52が離されたと判別し、クレンジングに係る通電を停止させる。そして、再びヘッド部52を多孔質被覆体53を介し肌70に密着させると、制御部16はクレンジングに係る通電状態に移行し、通電を再開する。クレンジングを完全に終える場合は、使用者が操作部11bで動作モードを他に切替えるか電源をOFF状態とすればよい。   When the head unit 52 is separated from the skin 70 in order to interrupt the cleansing operation or change the removal position, the control unit 16 determines that the head unit 52 has been separated from the skin, as in the first embodiment. Stop energization. And if the head part 52 is again closely_contact | adhered to the skin 70 through the porous coating body 53, the control part 16 will transfer to the energization state which concerns on cleansing, and will resume energization. When cleansing is completed completely, the user may switch the operation mode to another by using the operation unit 11b or turn off the power.

このクレンジングモードの終了後は、保持部55をヘッド部52から外し、保持状態を解除された多孔質被覆体53を、ヘッド部52上から取外してヘッド部52を清浄化する。また、使用者は洗顔等を行って肌上に浮いた状態で残った汚れを取除くこととなる。   After completion of the cleansing mode, the holding portion 55 is removed from the head portion 52, and the porous covering 53 released from the holding state is removed from the head portion 52 to clean the head portion 52. In addition, the user cleans the face and removes the dirt remaining on the skin.

イオン導入を行う場合には、使用者は前記同様、電解質成分を含んだ保護化粧水を染みこませた多孔質被覆体53をヘッド部52に装着し、さらに保持部55をヘッド部52における側面52b外側に位置させ、保持部55の各突起55bをヘッド部側面52bの凹部52eに係合させて、保持部55とヘッド部52との間に多孔質被覆体53を挟持し、多孔質被覆体53をヘッド部52表面に保持、固定する。この場合、多孔質被覆体53をヘッド部52表面に保持、固定した後、多孔質被覆体53に化粧水を染みこませてもよい。   When performing iontophoresis, the user attaches the porous covering 53 soaked with the protective lotion containing the electrolyte component to the head portion 52 as described above, and further attaches the holding portion 55 to the side surface of the head portion 52. 52 b is located outside, and each protrusion 55 b of the holding portion 55 is engaged with the concave portion 52 e of the head portion side surface 52 b, and the porous covering 53 is sandwiched between the holding portion 55 and the head portion 52, The body 53 is held and fixed on the surface of the head portion 52. In this case, after the porous covering 53 is held and fixed on the surface of the head portion 52, lotion may be soaked into the porous covering 53.

保持された多孔質被覆体53は、前記クレンジングの場合と同様、ヘッド部52の外形に対応した形状とされており、皺等無く伸びた状態でヘッド部52表面に密着すると共に、この伸びた状態で肌に接触できることとなる。   As in the case of the cleansing, the retained porous covering 53 has a shape corresponding to the outer shape of the head portion 52. The porous covering 53 is in close contact with the surface of the head portion 52 in a stretched state without any wrinkles. You can touch the skin in the state.

使用者が操作部11bのモード切替スイッチ11dを操作してイオン導入モードを選択すると、前記第1の実施形態同様、制御部16はまず検出用の信号を出力する。使用者が本体部11を動かしてヘッド部52を多孔質被覆体53を介し肌70に密着させると、体及び多孔質被覆体53中の化粧水を介した通電が可能となり、出力された検出用の信号の受信によりこの状態を検出すると、制御部16は前記クレンジングの場合とは逆極性となる、イオン導入に係る通電状態に移行する。   When the user operates the mode changeover switch 11d of the operation unit 11b to select the ion introduction mode, the control unit 16 first outputs a detection signal as in the first embodiment. When the user moves the main body portion 11 to bring the head portion 52 into close contact with the skin 70 via the porous covering 53, energization via the body and the skin lotion in the porous covering 53 becomes possible, and the output detection is performed. When this state is detected by receiving a signal for use, the control unit 16 shifts to an energization state related to ion introduction that has a polarity opposite to that in the cleansing case.

この通電状態で、制御部53は、周期の短いパルス波形をなす通電をヘッド部52と補助電極部11c間で実行し、多孔質被覆体53を流れる電流で化粧水中のイオン性の有効成分を肌側へ移行させ、電流によりイオンが浸透しやすい状態となっている肌内に、有効成分が速やかに浸透する。クレンジングの場合と同様、肌70のうち鼻と頬の境界部分など凹状の隅部となっている箇所についても、ヘッド部52における頂面横縁部52dの曲率の大きい丸み面取り形状部分を、その表面の多孔質被覆体53を介して確実に当接させることができ、偏りなくイオン導入を行うことができる。   In this energized state, the control unit 53 executes energization having a short cycle pulse waveform between the head unit 52 and the auxiliary electrode unit 11c, and the ionic active ingredient in the skin lotion is supplied by the current flowing through the porous covering 53. The active ingredient quickly penetrates into the skin which is shifted to the skin side and is in a state where ions are easily penetrated by electric current. As in the case of cleansing, the round chamfered shape portion having a large curvature of the top side lateral edge portion 52d in the head portion 52 is also provided for the portion of the skin 70 that is a concave corner portion such as the boundary portion of the nose and cheek. The surface can be reliably brought into contact with the porous coating 53, and ions can be introduced without unevenness.

多孔質被覆体53を肌70に当接させたままヘッド部52を肌上で少しずつ移動させると、通電状態のままイオン導入の対象位置を変えられるが、多孔質被覆体53を介してヘッド部52における頂面52aの中央を除く端部や側面52bが肌に当接していた場合、クレンジングの場合と同様、ヘッド部52は移動に伴って支点部52fを中心に回動し、多孔質被覆体53は肌に対し転がり接触状態となる。こうして、ヘッド部52や多孔質被覆体53の肌への引っかかりや擦れを生じさせることなく、多孔質被覆体53を確実に肌に当接させることができ、ヘッド部52を移動させながらでも肌に負担をかけずにイオン導入の効果を発揮させられる。   When the head portion 52 is moved little by little on the skin while the porous covering 53 is in contact with the skin 70, the target position of ion introduction can be changed while being energized, but the head is interposed via the porous covering 53. When the end portion and the side surface 52b except for the center of the top surface 52a in the portion 52 are in contact with the skin, the head portion 52 rotates around the fulcrum portion 52f as the cleansing is performed, and is porous. The covering 53 rolls against the skin and comes into contact. Thus, the porous covering 53 can be reliably brought into contact with the skin without causing the head 52 or the porous covering 53 to be caught or rubbed against the skin, and the skin can be moved even while the head 52 is moved. The effect of ion introduction can be exhibited without imposing a burden on the substrate.

なお、ヘッド部52を肌上で移動させる際に、多孔質被覆体53を介してヘッド部52における頂面52aの中央を含む広い領域が肌に当接していた場合、ヘッド部52の回動による多孔質被覆体53の転がり接触は生じない。ただこの場合も、ヘッド部52がその頂面近傍で本体部11からは離れた高い位置の支点部52fを中心として傾動可能とされていることで、クレンジングの場合と同様、肌からヘッド部52に加わる反力はヘッド部52の頂面を肌に正対させるように作用し、ヘッド部52の頂面を肌に沿わせた状態が常に得られ、ヘッド部52や多孔質被覆体53の肌への引っかかりを防ぎつつ、多孔質被覆体53を確実に肌に当接させることができ、ヘッド部を静止させた状態と変わりなくイオン導入の効果を発揮させられる。   In addition, when moving the head part 52 on the skin, if a wide area including the center of the top surface 52a in the head part 52 is in contact with the skin via the porous covering 53, the rotation of the head part 52 is performed. The rolling contact of the porous covering 53 due to does not occur. However, in this case as well, the head portion 52 can be tilted about the fulcrum portion 52f located at a high position in the vicinity of the top surface and away from the main body portion 11, so that the head portion 52 is removed from the skin as in the case of cleansing. The reaction force applied to the head part 52 acts so that the top surface of the head part 52 faces the skin, and a state where the top surface of the head part 52 is along the skin is always obtained. While preventing the skin from being caught, the porous covering 53 can be brought into contact with the skin with certainty, and the effect of ion introduction can be exhibited as in the state in which the head portion is stationary.

イオン導入を中断したり導入位置を大きく変えるために、ヘッド部52を肌70から離すと、前記第1の実施形態同様、制御部16は肌からヘッド部52が離されたと判別し、イオン導入に係る通電を停止させる。そして、再びヘッド部52を多孔質被覆体53を介し肌70に密着させると、制御部16はイオン導入に係る通電状態に移行し、通電を再開する。イオン導入を完全に終える場合は、使用者が操作部11bで動作モードを他に切替えるか電源をOFF状態とすればよい。   When the head portion 52 is separated from the skin 70 in order to interrupt ion introduction or greatly change the introduction position, the controller 16 determines that the head portion 52 has been separated from the skin, as in the first embodiment, and the ion introduction is performed. The energization concerning is stopped. And if the head part 52 is again closely_contact | adhered to the skin 70 via the porous coating body 53, the control part 16 will transfer to the electricity supply state which concerns on ion introduction, and will restart electricity supply. When ion introduction is completed completely, the user may switch the operation mode to another by using the operation unit 11b or turn off the power.

このイオン導入モードの終了後は、保持部55をヘッド部52から外し、保持状態を解除された多孔質被覆体53を取外し、必要に応じてヘッド部52を清浄化すればよい。   After the end of the ion introduction mode, the holding part 55 is removed from the head part 52, the porous covering 53 released from the holding state is removed, and the head part 52 may be cleaned as necessary.

マッサージやリフティングといった肌への通電を実行する場合には、多孔質被覆体53を使用せず、ヘッド部52は保持部55を取付けない状態で用いる。なお、肌には必要に応じ化粧水や乳液等を付けてなじませた状態とする。   When energizing the skin, such as massage or lifting, the porous covering 53 is not used and the head 52 is used without the holding portion 55 attached. It should be noted that the skin should be familiarized with lotion or milky lotion if necessary.

使用者が操作部11bのモード切替スイッチ11dを操作してマッサージモードまたはリフティングモードを選択すると、前記第1の実施形態同様、制御部16はまず検出用の信号を出力する。使用者が本体部11を動かしてヘッド部52を肌70に密着させると、体を介した通電が可能となり、制御部16はマッサージやリフティングに係る通電状態に移行する。   When the user operates the mode switching switch 11d of the operation unit 11b to select the massage mode or the lifting mode, the control unit 16 first outputs a detection signal as in the first embodiment. When the user moves the main body unit 11 to bring the head unit 52 into close contact with the skin 70, energization through the body becomes possible, and the control unit 16 shifts to an energized state related to massage or lifting.

マッサージモードの場合、制御部16は、前記第1の実施形態同様、異なる極性のパルスが交互に現れる低周波の波形となる通電をヘッド部52と補助電極部11c間で実行し、ヘッド部52と補助電極部11c間において体を介した通電状態となり、肌70に低周波の通電がなされ、肌70を活性化してマッサージ効果を与え、血行を促進することとなる。   In the case of the massage mode, similarly to the first embodiment, the control unit 16 performs energization with a low-frequency waveform in which pulses of different polarities alternately appear between the head unit 52 and the auxiliary electrode unit 11c, and the head unit 52 The auxiliary electrode portion 11c is energized through the body, and the skin 70 is energized at a low frequency, which activates the skin 70 to give a massage effect and promote blood circulation.

また、リフティングモードの場合も、制御部16は、前記第1の実施形態同様、マッサージモードより低周波で異なる極性のパルスが交互に現れる波形となる通電を実行し、ヘッド部52と補助電極部11c間で体を介した通電状態となり、肌70に低周波の通電がなされ、肌70への有効成分の浸透を促すと共に、肌に張りを与えて引上げるリフティングの効果を与えることとなる。   Also in the lifting mode, similarly to the first embodiment, the control unit 16 performs energization with a waveform in which pulses having different polarities at lower frequencies than the massage mode alternately appear, and the head unit 52 and the auxiliary electrode unit 11c is energized through the body, and the skin 70 is energized at a low frequency, which promotes the penetration of the active ingredient into the skin 70 and provides the lifting effect of tensioning and lifting the skin.

このマッサージモードやリフティングモードで、ヘッド部52を肌70に密着させている状態において、ヘッド部52は本体部11に対し弾性支持されており且つ傾動可能であることで、ヘッド部52は肌への接触圧力を適正としつつ、無理なく肌に当接でき(図27(B)参照)、使用者はヘッド部52を肌に当接させるように本体部11を注意深く微調整しながら支持する必要はない。   In the massage mode and the lifting mode, in a state where the head portion 52 is in close contact with the skin 70, the head portion 52 is elastically supported with respect to the main body portion 11 and can be tilted. It is possible to contact the skin comfortably with the proper contact pressure (see FIG. 27 (B)), and the user needs to support the main body portion 11 with careful fine adjustment so that the head portion 52 contacts the skin. There is no.

ヘッド部52の側面52bには、複数の小さな凹部52eが設けられており、この側面52bを肌に当接させた状態では、肌に塗布された化粧水等が、肌と接触せず圧力のかからないこの凹部52eに保持されて流れ落ちにくくなり、ヘッド部52と肌との間に化粧水等を位置させたまま通電を行える。こうして、従来は肌とヘッド部との接触に伴って押出され流れ落ちてしまっていた化粧水等を、無駄に消費することなく肌上でその効果を適切に発揮させることができる。   The side surface 52b of the head portion 52 is provided with a plurality of small concave portions 52e. When the side surface 52b is in contact with the skin, the skin lotion applied to the skin does not come into contact with the skin and the pressure is reduced. It is held in the concave portion 52e that does not apply and is difficult to flow down, and energization can be performed with the lotion or the like positioned between the head portion 52 and the skin. Thus, it is possible to appropriately exert the effect on the skin without wastefully consuming the lotion or the like that has been extruded and flowed down with the contact between the skin and the head portion.

ヘッド部52を肌70に当接させたまま肌上で少しずつ移動させると、通電の対象位置を変えられる。この際、ヘッド部52における頂面52aの中央を除く端部や側面52bが肌に当接していた場合、ヘッド部52は移動に伴って肌70から受ける摩擦抵抗力に伴って生じる支点部52f周りの回転モーメントにより、支点部52fを中心に回動し、ヘッド部52は肌70に対し転がり接触状態となる。こうして、ヘッド部52の肌への引っかかりや擦れを生じさせることなく、ヘッド部52を確実に肌に当接させることができ、ヘッド部52を移動させながらでも肌に負担をかけずに通電の効果を発揮させられる。   When the head portion 52 is moved little by little on the skin while being in contact with the skin 70, the target position for energization can be changed. At this time, when the end portion and the side surface 52b except for the center of the top surface 52a of the head portion 52 are in contact with the skin, the head portion 52 is generated by the frictional resistance force received from the skin 70 as it moves. The head portion 52 is brought into a rolling contact state with respect to the skin 70 by rotating around the fulcrum portion 52f by the surrounding rotational moment. In this way, the head portion 52 can be brought into contact with the skin without causing the head portion 52 to be caught or rubbed, and even when the head portion 52 is moved, the energization can be performed without imposing a burden on the skin. The effect is demonstrated.

このヘッド部52を肌上で移動させる際に、ヘッド部52における頂面52aの中央を含む広い領域が肌に当接していた場合、ヘッド部52の回動によるヘッド部52の転がり接触は生じない。ただこの場合も、ヘッド部52がその頂面近傍で本体部11からは離れた高い位置の支点部52fを中心として傾動可能とされていることで、クレンジングやイオン導入の場合と同様、肌からヘッド部52に加わる反力はヘッド部52の頂面を肌に正対させるように作用し、ヘッド部52の頂面を肌に沿わせた状態が常に得られ、ヘッド部52の肌への引っかかりを防ぎつつ、ヘッド部52を確実に肌に当接させることができ、ヘッド部を静止させた状態と変わりなく通電の効果を発揮させられる。   When the head portion 52 is moved on the skin, if a wide area including the center of the top surface 52a of the head portion 52 is in contact with the skin, rolling contact of the head portion 52 due to the rotation of the head portion 52 occurs. Absent. However, also in this case, the head portion 52 can be tilted around the fulcrum portion 52f at a high position away from the main body portion 11 in the vicinity of the top surface thereof, so that the skin can be removed from the skin as in the case of cleansing and ion introduction. The reaction force applied to the head portion 52 acts so that the top surface of the head portion 52 faces the skin, and a state in which the top surface of the head portion 52 is along the skin is always obtained. While preventing the catch, the head portion 52 can be reliably brought into contact with the skin, and the effect of energization can be exhibited as in the state where the head portion is stationary.

通電を中断したり通電位置を変えるために、ヘッド部52を肌70から離すと、前記第1の実施形態同様、制御部16は肌からヘッド部52が離されたと判別し、マッサージやリフティングに係る通電を停止させる。そして、再びヘッド部52を肌70に密着させると、制御部16はマッサージやリフティングに係る通電状態に移行し、通電を再開する。さらに使用者が操作部11bで動作モードを他に切替えるか電源をOFF状態とすれば、通電は完全に終了となる。   When the head unit 52 is separated from the skin 70 in order to interrupt energization or change the energization position, the control unit 16 determines that the head unit 52 is separated from the skin as in the first embodiment, and performs massage and lifting. This energization is stopped. And if the head part 52 is again closely_contact | adhered to the skin 70, the control part 16 will transfer to the electricity supply state which concerns on a massage and lifting, and will resume electricity supply. Further, when the user switches the operation mode to another one by the operation unit 11b or turns off the power, the energization is completely terminated.

このように、本実施形態に係る美容装置は、ヘッド部52を本体部11に対し回動可能とし、ヘッド部52の頂面52a中心部以外の箇所を直接又は多孔質被覆体53を介して使用者の肌70に当接させた状態で、使用者が本体部11を動かしてヘッド部52を移動させようとすると、ヘッド部52は肌70から受ける摩擦抵抗力に伴って生じる回転モーメントで回動し、ヘッド部52や多孔質被覆体53は肌70に対し転がり接触する状態となることから、ヘッド部52や多孔質被覆体53の肌70への引っかかりや擦れを生じさせずに、確実に肌70に当接させることができ、ヘッド部52を移動させながらでも肌に負担をかけずにクレンジングやイオン導入等の美容効果を発揮させられる。また、多孔質被覆体53をヘッド部52表面に配設して用いる場合には、多孔質被覆体53が肌70に対し転がり接触して接触位置を変化させていくことで、多孔質被覆体53の同じ箇所が集中的に使用されて肌70の汚れ成分が過度に付着する状態とならず、多孔質被覆体53の清浄な部位を最大限に使用して、多孔質被覆体53を用いたクレンジングやイオン導入等をより使用者にとって好ましい状態で実行できる。   As described above, in the beauty device according to the present embodiment, the head portion 52 can be rotated with respect to the main body portion 11, and a portion other than the central portion of the top surface 52 a of the head portion 52 can be directly or via the porous covering 53. When the user tries to move the head part 52 by moving the main body part 11 in a state of being in contact with the user's skin 70, the head part 52 is caused by a rotational moment generated along with the frictional resistance force received from the skin 70. The head portion 52 and the porous covering 53 are in a state of rolling contact with the skin 70, so that the head portion 52 and the porous covering 53 are not caught on or rubbed against the skin 70. The skin 70 can be reliably brought into contact with the skin 70, and beauty effects such as cleansing and ion introduction can be exhibited without causing a burden on the skin even when the head portion 52 is moved. Further, when the porous covering 53 is disposed on the surface of the head portion 52 and used, the porous covering 53 is brought into rolling contact with the skin 70 to change the contact position.
