On Demand Cold Sore Prevention

The situation is all too familiar – it’s a Friday night, you’re getting ready to call it a night, and you feel that familiar tingling on your lip. That’s when the panic sets in, that “Oh no, how am I going to avoid this?” racing through your mind. You could go to the local drug store and buy every product within sight, research medical advice, you could put an ice patch on it, or you could take your chances and just go to bed.

When you wake up, it’s happened. Signs of a cold sore have appeared and is beginning its reign of terror. You can put Abreva on it, or maybe Polysporin, but that cold sore is here to stay, for a little while at least. You put cold sore makeup on to cover it, you might use a band aid or just leave it alone. But the annoyance that the pesky bump brings cannot be ignored.

Preventing Cold Sores

Before now, there was no way to prevent a cold sore (learn more at our cold sore faq page). The only option was medication or cold sore products that shorten the duration of a recurrent cold sores outbreak. Most of these antiviral medications come with harmful side effects and those products have no guaranteed effect on a serious outbreak. But, for the first time ever, we are able to actively prevent cold sore outbreaks at the first sign of them appearing. How is this possible, you might ask? InterceptCS™ is the answer.

How Prevention Works

Prevention means stopping a cold sore before it starts. The InterceptCS™ method of prevention is done through our clinically tested Thermal Therapy Technology. Thermal Therapy is a breakthrough science in cold sore treatment which involves a process called “Heat Shock”.

InterceptCS™ applies Thermal Therapy Technology through carefully delivered applications of heat to the infected area. Without burning the skin, Thermal Therapy delivers a range of heat that causes a chain reaction in infected (herpes simplex virus HSV 1) cold sore cells. This “heat shock response” happens after heat shock proteins begin to cause the virus to die, and returns the skin to its normal, healthy state.

By using InterceptCS™ during the “prodrome” or tingling stage, Thermal Therapy destroys the virus that causes cold sores and stops them from creating the harmful cold sore. No suffering, no embarrassment, and no additional products needed. You’ll be back to normal in 24 hours.

Anytime, Anywhere

Be sure to keep your InterceptCS™ ready for the next outbreak. Keep it in your car, your bathroom, or anyplace you want. InterceptCS™ is discrete and portable, and is ready to be used for treating cold sores as soon as you feel the tingle, so you never have to worry about cold sores again.

We might not be able to cure cold sores, but we are close. InterceptCS™ is the solution to frequent cold sores or even just those “really bad timing” outbreaks. To learn more about this revolutionary product, visit our shop page now!
