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

BBL HERO is a treatment device that uses the heating power of broad band light. Your provider uses the device to gently warm the layers of the skin, stimulating collagen growth and inducing your body’s natural healing response.

After a series of treatment sessions, your body replaces damaged skin cells with new revitalized ones. This and the natural production of collagen smooths and plumps your skin for an overall refreshed and youthful appearance!
