vices and more particularly t6 sue-nuance hat f are designed for nightly application thfdiighoiit 1e series 6: treatments.

Wrinkle formation in human tissue, particularly around the eyes and othrparts of :the fffi'ce, eanb'e retarded or in some sees arrested by proper manipulation and tratfiieiit "of *the' surface areas. However, :mostv devices hereto- --fre designed for this purpose have involved the identical treatment of the same facial areas,

with the result that lines are changed .m pesition, but not reduced in depth or extent 'by' the applied to the skin and effectively held thereon in proper position for protracted'periods.

A further object of the invention is the provision of a wrinkle arresting device which provides sufficient grip on the skin in the area being treated to afford a desired amount of manipulation, while at the same time permitting sufficient breathing of the skin within the gripped area to maintain the proper chemical condition of the skin.

Other objects reside in novel combinations and arrangements of parts and novel details of construction, all ofv which will be set forth inthe course of the following description.

The present invention resides in the discovery that .by providing a suitably apertured pattern in a skin-gripping medium, such as court plaster, for example, an area of the skin in which wrinkles are forming can be subjected to a series of treatments in which the skin is manipulated under optimum conditions to retard or arrest wrinkle formation.

to ermine arresting deaf i claim: (01. res-st) Fig. 3 is a fragmentary section drawn to an; enlarged scale, illustrating the manner of usi a, device of the type illustrated in Fig. 1.

The form of the invention illustrated in Fig. .1.

comprises a strip of court-plaster 4, the rear side 5 of which as viewed in Fig. 1 being im -x pregnated with a suitable adhesive composition that upon wetting or moisteningsticks the strip to thetissue against which it is pressed. .A series a of apertures 6 extend substantially throughoutstrip 4, and preferably comprise a plurality-of rows with the apertures of one row disposed :in

staggered relation to the apertures of an riaidjoining row. While only two such irows have.

been shown in the drawing, it will :be apparent that three or four or even more rows ma zbe provided, if desired.

The strip 4 may be provided in any desired length and width, and preferably will be approximately one-half inch in width. The size of the aperture 6 may be varied, and such variation will include additions to or reductions in the number of rows depending on the size differential.

The form of the invention shown in Fig. 2.

involves the use of a strip 4' of porous material,

such as a coarse woven fabric, the strands of which are spaced to provide a series ofapertures 6. These apertures also will be arranged in rows, as shown, and preferably will be umiormly spaced throughout the length and width of the fabric. A suitable adhesive material, such as'gum arabic, will be applied to the rear side of strip 4' and by wetting this composition and applying the wetted surface to the tissue under pressure, the strip can be caused to adhere to the tissue for prolonged periods. Linen or an equiva ent material is preferred in making up the strips of the type shown in Fig. 2.

Both the strips and 4' are used in essentially the same way and the manner of usage has been illustrated in Fig. 3 as an enlarged sectional view. As shown, a tissue surface 1 normallycontaining a wrinkle formation is covered by the strip 4, such as shown in Fig. 1, with the imperforate sur-- face s of the material brought into contact with the normally wrinkled portion of the tissue I in such a way as to flatten the tissue. This flattening or stretching causes loose tissue to flow into the spaces enclosed by the apertures 6 as depicted at hr. The usual manner is to so apply the strip before retiring and to remove it on arising in the morning. The continuity of the wrinkle is thus interrupted by causing normally crowded tissue to expand into the spaces of the perforations and due to the close proximity of a number of the It will be understoodthat in attaining best re-- sults, it is necessary to subject a given portion of the tissue to repetitions of the aforesaid treatment. While the strip will be applied each time in substantially the same position, the arrange ment of apertures on the tissue will differ slight- 1y each time so that no given portion is covered' too long or exposed for too 'long an interval.

Also, the difierential positioning has theeffect of exerting a greater spreading action on the crowded tissue and eventually a substantial portion of the crowded tissue moves into the line of the former wrinkle and being free to expand without crowding, substantially reduces the wrinkled effect. 4

Thestructural forms illustrated in the "GIELW- ings are intended merely as typical embodiments of the invention and it will be apparent that substantial variation in the arrangement of apertures may be utilized in the practice of the invention. Similarly, a variety of materials may be utilized in forming the strips. Therefore, the structural forms are not intended as limitations of the invention, the scope of which is set forth in the hereunto appended claim.

.What I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

A wrinkle-treating device for removable application to anarea of wrinkled human skin such as on the forehead, comprising a piece of flexible material formed from crossed woven strips of coarse fabric and having inner and outer surfaces, and an adhesive composition covering the inner surface of said piece whereby to provide means for fixing the piece'to said wrinkled skin area against movement relative to said skin by the normal' muscular movement of thejskin, the piece containing a series of spaced apertures extending in two parallel rows throughout-its superficial area and arranged so as to provide imperforate wrinkle-contacting portions and adjoining perforate portions into which crowded tissue expands when the piece is held by the adhesive in continuous contact with the tissue, the

width of said imperforate portions between openings approximating the width of said openings and the width of the imperforate portions between rows approximating the width of said openings.
