Thermal Therapy Technology

Red light and infrared combined with our clinically proven septic system penetrates deep into the skin, killing the infected cells that cause cold sores. The device’s thermal heat conductivity further eliminates the virally-infected cells by a process called “heat shock response”, which is a reaction virus’ have whereby they transcript a number of their genes and activate heat-shock proteins.

The heat-shock proteins participate in the virus’ death by causing the HSV-1 virus to self-destruct, resulting in the death if the lesions and return to the skin’s normal, healthy state.

How Does InterceptCS™ Work?

InterceptCS™ uses breakthrough “Thermal Therapy Technology”. This applies controlled, topical heat to affected areas, without burning the skin. The controlled range of heat naturally prevents cold sore outbreaks making this the leading cold sore treatment on the market.
