The AuraLevée is a Featured Invention at the Colorado Inventor Showcase 2009
AuraLevée is a proprietary breakthrough technology – the first to employ high frequency alternating magnetic fields for applications in cosmetic medicine by Rocky Mountain Biosystems, Inc. Treatment with the AuraLevée system results in an immediate cosmetic skin tightening that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and skin laxity, followed by the stimulation of new collagen production that results in thickening of the dermis.
The use of alternating magnetic fields ensures there is no electrical contact with the patient, and results in focused heating only in the epidermis. As a result, AuraLevée is expected to be among the safest cosmetic treatments available, providing the physician much greater control and improved efficacy over the cosmetic outcome for patients.
Volumetric Skin Tightening
The immediate skin tightening effect of AuraLevée is believed to result from its effect on the molecular structure of proteins and proteoglycans in the dermis. The most prominent effect is believed to occur as a result of collagen contraction following localized heating, permitting the collagen fibrils to once again pack together more closely as found in younger skin.
Generation of New Collagen for Skin Thickening
A second AuraLevée effect occurs weeks to months after treatment as a result of the creation of a microthermal “shock” to fibroblasts in the dermis, which proliferate and are stimulated to produce new collagen in the dermal layers. The stimulation and proliferation ultimately result in thickening of the dermis.
Mechanism of Action
Collagen behaves similarly in response to the application of any thermal energy field, as is the case with lasers and RF cosmetic devices. The uniqueness of AuraLevée lies in the fact that the thermal energy contracting the collagen is generated internally rather than as the result of external electrical or photon stimulation.
The result with AuraLevee is immediate tissue shrinkage and activation of collagen repair and regrowth.
