HOW IT WORKS
The InterceptCS™ system provides controlled topical heat without the risk of burning the skin. The device’s controlled range of heat naturally prevents cold sore outbreaks.
Light and infrared combined with the InterceptCS™ septic system penetrate deep into the skin killing the virally infected cells that cause cold sores. The device’s thermal heat conductivity further destroys the bacteria by a process called heat shock response which is a reaction bacteria have to heat whereby they transcript a number of their genes and activate heat-shock proteins.
The heat shock proteins participate in the bacteria’s death by causing the bacteria to self-destruct resulting in the death of the lesions and return to the skin’s normal healthy state.
