  • Patent number: 10857372
    Abstract: The present application relates to a device for treating skin using non-thermal plasma. It comprises a housing having a skin interface electrode for application to skin during treatment, a generator for generating non-thermal plasma at the skin interface electrode; and an isolating element to isolate a region surrounding said skin interface electrode other than during treatment so that non-thermal plasma generated at the skin interface electrode within said region sterilises the skin interface electrode.

  • Patent number: 10751892
    Abstract: A grooming appliance (100) comprising: a grooming mechanism (102) for grooming a user; a motor (104) arranged to operate the grooming mechanism; and a controller (106) configured to modulate a data signal into sound produced by the grooming appliance during the operation of the grooming mechanism by the motor, in order to transmit information relating to the grooming appliance. In embodiments, the sound being modulated is caused by the motor when operating the grooming mechanism. In this case the controller is arranged to supply a drive signal to the motor in order to control the motor, and to perform the modulation by varying the drive signal in order to modulate the data signal into the sound caused by the motor during operation of the grooming mechanism.

  • Patent number: 10084401
    Abstract: The invention relates to an electric shaver (1) comprising a cutter unit (3), an electric motor (4), a load detector arranged to detect a load current of the motor (4) and a controller. The controller switches the average voltage from a first level to a second level once the load current exceeds a first threshold value (TH_TH), and switches the average voltage from the second level back to the first level if the load current falls below a second threshold value (TH_TL) and stays below the second threshold value (TH_TL) for a predefined time period. By operating on a lower energy consumption when the cutter unit of the shaver is not in contact with the skin, energy is saved without the need for a proximity sensor.
