The InterceptCS™

Cold Sore Prevention System

is comprised of an ergonomically designed hand-held unit and a disposable treatment activator, the activator is good for preventing one cold sore occurrence. Design and engineering of the system was completed in late 2005 and in April 2006.


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.


Therma Bright has completed prototyping for multi-use activations for its InterceptCS™ and expects to manufacture multi-use activators at cost effective value added pricing for consumers.  Therma Bright Inc. is currently in R&D for the redesign of InterceptCS™ that incorporates a smaller form factor, advanced technology and ease of purchase by consumers for each activation.
