Botox Doctor NJ: Dr. Betty Keller provides botox and other treatments to restore healthy, younger looking skin in Ridgewood NJ
What is Botox Cosmetic?
One of the most popular treatments offered at Optimal Wellness Medical Spa!
It is a treatment to temporarily reduce the look and appearance of fine to severe lines around the eyes (crows feet) and frown lines between the brows. It is also effective in reducing horizontal forehead lines, and is used as a non- surgical eyebrow lift. Botox cosmetic can also be used in the lower part of your face as well as the neck.
Who is a good candidate for Botox Cosmetic?
Adults 18 and over who want to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, between the brows, forehead and areas in the lower face and neck. People with dynamic wrinkles and no static component achieve the best results. You will see a reduction in dynamic wrinkles, those you see when you actively use your facial muscle. When you are not making any expression those remaining lines (if you have them) will not disappear.
How does Botox Cosmetic Work?
Botox Cosmetic targets the underlining cause of your wrinkles, like in the area around your eyes ( crow’s feet) and the area between your brows (frown lines). It temporarily reduces muscle contraction and smooths skin wrinkles in the treatment area.
When will I see results?
You may start to see results in the first 24 to 48 hours. However it may take up to two weeks before you see the full results. We like to have our patients follow up two weeks after a treatment to evaluate your results and take photographs, so we can compare your pretreatment appearance. If after two weeks you feel you need a touch up please let the office knows you would like additional treatment at your post treatment check up. Botox cosmetic can last up to 4 months.
Can Botox Cosmetic be combined with other treatments?
Botox cosmetic can also be used in combination with dermal fillers and other aesthetic treatments. Other treatments may include medical skin peels, micro needling, lasers, and medical grade skin care.
We always recommend a daily sunblock with antioxidants to help maintain your youthful appearance and prevent sun damage which can prematurely age your skin. A daily sunblock of SPF 50 or greater with antioxidants like one of three specially formulated sunblock’s that are part of Dr. Keller’s MD Essentials skin care line should be part of your daily routine.
Will I look like I had work done?
Our goal at Optimal Wellness is to give you a refreshed natural look. At your consultations we will be happy to provide you with actual photos of our patients. We believe less is more, and at your two-week follow up if we both agree additional treatment would enhance your appearance additional treatments will be performed.
You will not walk out of our office with a frozen or overfilled face.
Does Botox injection hurt?
Most of our patients report that Botox injections feel like a pinch. We usually numb with ice prior to injection. If you are concerned we also have a topical anesthetic that can be applied prior to injections. If you plan on using a local anesthetic please arrive 20 minutes before your scheduled appointment so we can apply your topical aesthetic.
What are common side effects?
Side effects are rare when Botox Cosmetic is used. Botox Cosmetic is an FDA approved cosmetic treatment. In studies by Allergen, the makers of Botox, 3% of patient experienced some eyelid drooping in the frown lines and 1% experienced some eyelid swelling when treating crow’s feet. Other possible side effects include but are not limited to, headache, dry mouth, discomfort at the injection site, tiredness, double vision, blurred vision, and dry eyes.
We take all precautions to prevent side effects. Dr. Keller is the only one who does Botox injections at Optimal Wellness. She has been thoroughly trained in Botox injection. She actively engages in continuing educational activities to further enhance her knowledge and skills in Botox injection.
How many injections will I receive?
It depends on your areas of concern and your specific facial anatomy.
Usually we do three small injections for crow’s feet on both sides. For frown lines usually 5 small injections. Horizontal frown likes depending on your specific anatomy.
How long is the recovery?
After your treatment, you can resume your day. There is minimal downtime and we will give you specific aftercare instructions.

Dr. Keller did a great job. She really took the time to discuss what I was concerned about. We discussed all the different ways to address my issue. We decided on Botox for my frown lines, forehead lines and crows feet. She also did a little filler to smooth out my upper lip lines and lift the corners of my mouth. No bruising, and not really painful. Completely natural looking, just enough to make me feel better about the way I look. Thank you, Dr. Keller
I had juvederm treatment by Dr. Keller and could not be happier. Her less-is-more approach let me looking 10 years younger. It was painless and I feel really good about the way I look. She also uses just a little Botox to address my frown lines. I’ll be going back in 4 months to get a botox touch up. The filler she put in can last up to a year! I like the fact that I never feel rushed when I go to see Dr Keller; she also takes care of my hormone replacement therapy. Lucky to have found her.
I have been thinking about doing something for a while. I met with Dr. Keller, after discussing what treatments could help; I decided to do a medical VI Peel. I loved the results and felt I looked refreshed. I then had a little Botox for the crow’s feet and my frown lines. I am very happy with my natural looking results. Just enough to make me happy to look in the mirror.
Dr. Keller did a fantastic job with my Botox and fillers. I was so happy with the results. She used Juvederm Ultra Plus, she used only one syringe and I cannot believe what a difference it made in my appearance. She said it could last up to a year, but everyone is different. I’m enjoying my more youthful and natural appearance.
Dr. Keller has been my anti-aging doctor for the last 5 years; she has balanced my hormones, helps me with my weight and also addressed my aging skin. I have had micro needling, VI Peel, and most recently Botox and juvederm. I am so happy with her approach. She prefers non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments and when it comes to Botox and fillers she believes less is more. I know I can trust her to help me look and feel my best I also use her skin care, they are amazing products.
