Injectables Q & A

Amour Medical Aesthetics, Inc

What are Botox and filler injections used for?

Botox and dermal fillers are a nonsurgical alternative for smoothing the skin of your face and neck. These quick and easy injectable treatments smooth your skin and enhance volume in the areas where you receive the injectable.


For the best results, you need a skilled physician to administer the injections. Dr. Alonso is a trained professional ready to give you details about how injectable treatments will work best for you.

What’s the difference between Botox and fillers?

Botox is generally used to freeze the muscles in your face so that they’re unable to move, which stops creases from forming when you make facial expressions.


Dr. Alonso uses fillers to plump or “fill” creases or wrinkles. The filled tissue is smoother and younger-looking.


Dr. Alonso advises you about which treatment is best for you during your consultation.

What can I expect when getting Botox or fillers?

Injection treatments usually last between 10 and 20 minutes, and Dr. Alonso may suggest numbing the area before treatment. He performs the injection using a very thin needle and will use multiple injections to treat the area based on your desired goals.


Each injection is quick and goes just under your skin’s surface. Dr. Alonso and the staff at Amour Medical Aesthetics, Inc ensure your comfort during your visit.


Will my face look puffy after my injectable treatment?

Because you’re receiving an injection in your face or neck, you can expect some soreness in the treatment area. Other side effects after receiving Botox or fillers may include:


  • Bruising
  • Numbness
  • Temporary redness
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Discoloration


In some cases, it’s possible to have an allergic reaction. Dr. Alonso provides aftercare instructions on how to address any of these issues should they arise.

How long will the results of Botox and filler injectables last?

The effects of injectables can last from two to six months depending on the area treated. Usually, treatments will be ongoing, and you’ll have follow-up appointments with Dr. Alonso every three to four months to maintain your results. He assesses your progress during these visits and gives you additional injections as needed to keep your skin looking smooth and healthy.
