With age, the skin can lose it smooth, healthy texture, developing larger pores, brown spots, acne scars, or scars left from trauma or facial surgery. Fraxel skin resurfacing restores firmer, smoother, evenly-toned skin, smoothing wrinkles and lines, while removing areas of hyperpigmentation by triggering the skin to rebuild and restore from within.
Time takes a toll on even the healthiest skin. Over time, wrinkles, sun damage, and skin laxity can make people look older than they feel. Facelift, brow lift, and other facial cosmetic surgery procedures have traditionally been the most effective treatments for a more youthful-looking appearance. However, many patients wish to avoid surgery for one reason or another. Now they can. Serving Philadelphia’s Main Line as well as Wilmington, Delaware and South Jersey, Dr. Jonathan Pontell is one of the first Fraxel Repair® providers in the United States and one of just a few in the Delaware Valley. This laser resurfacing system has revolutionized cosmetic skin care, as it is able to dramatically reduce signs of premature aging without surgery.

Benefits of The Fraxel Re:Pair System
The Fraxel Re:pair® laser skin resurfacing system offers numerous benefits over both existing surgical and non-surgical treatments. Patients in Philadelphia’s Main Line suburbs, including Wilmington, Delaware and South Jersey, who choose Fraxel Re:pair® SST laser resurfacing with Dr. Pontell enjoy smoother, tighter skin with better tone and texture; significantly diminished wrinkles and fine lines; and softened frown lines. All of this can be achieved in one simple treatment with minimal discomfort and recovery time.
The Fraxel Re:pair® treatment is the most advanced laser skin resurfacing system available today. It is the only FDA-approved system of its kind for the effective treatment of wrinkles and fine lines, as well as skin irregularities, and it is precise and flexible enough to be used safely on even the most delicate areas of the body, such as the eyelids.
How Fraxel Re:Pair® Treatment Works
The Fraxel Re:pair® treatment uses high-precision computer-controlled CO2 laser beams to treat thousands of microscopic problem areas while leaving the rest of the skin untouched. Energy from these laser beams penetrates deep into the skin, jump-starting the natural healing process to quickly produce healthy new skin cells and collagen fibers that improve the skin’s texture and appearance. At the same time, old and damaged layers of skin are vaporized away to reveal the healthy new skin beneath.
The treatment process is quick, with minimal post-procedure discomfort, and side effects are rare. Fraxel® treatment is safe for almost anyone. Patients should expect a week or less of social down time during the actual healing period. The final result is a youthful appearance that was previously only achievable with more invasive techniques.
