Thermal Therapy PRODUCTS
The Jenex Corporations' proprietary thermal therapy technology devices use heat and light energy to deliver effective, non-invasive and pain free skin care.
The Intercept CS Cold Sore Prevention System, is comprised of an ergonomically designed hand held unit and a disposable treatment activator, good for preventing one occurrence per activator.
Design and engineering of the system was completed in late 2005 and in April 2006.
How it works
The Intercept CS 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 Intercept CS 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.
