Treat Signs of Aging with No Downtime

BBL HERO treatment is considered the gold-standard of intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy.  HERO stands for “High Energy, Rapid Output”.  The power and incredible speed of this device make this one of the most comfortable and effective aesthetic treatments available.

The providers at Dr. Robert Bowen in Martinsburg are expertly trained in delivering the incredible benefits of BBL.  The treatment is completely customizable and requires no downtime, making it great treatment option for just about everyone, from those just dipping their toes in to cosmetic treatments, to even the most seasoned treatment veterans.

BBL HERO targets sun damage, rosacea, acne, brown/red discoloration and it promotes increased collagen formation, resulting in brighter, tighter skin and decreased pore size.  Patients of all shades of skin can gain more refreshed, youthful and healthier skin.
