He has over 20 years of experience and is recognized as an expert in facial rejuvenation procedures, such as Juvéderm.

What is Juvéderm®?
The Juvéderm collection offers dermal fillers that are made from hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a natural substance within the skin that delivers nutrients and helps the skin to retain its softness and moisture while adding volume. As we age, hyaluronic acid (HA) is naturally depleted, and our skin loses moisture, volume, and strength. Juvéderm is FDA-approved to replace volume by injecting an HA dermal filler into specific areas of the skin to achieve beautiful results. Each product in the Juvéderm dermal collection of fillers is designed with a modified form of HA. Dr. Philip Miller offers Voluma, Ultra, Ultra Plus, and Volbella for patients who are seeking specific results.
As we age, our skin loses elasticity, and we experience moderate to severe parentheses lines, folds, and wrinkles that appear on the face and around the nose and mouth. Serums and creams may provide some relief but can only work on the skin’s surface. Lines, furrows, creases, thinning lips, and smile lines are common aging problems that can be improved with facial plastic surgery or chemical or laser peels, but the recovery time and expense can be greatly reduced when you choose an alternative solution. The results can provide you with the long-lasting results that you desire. Juvéderm fillers offer a reasonable alternative to surgery by adding volume to a depressed or wrinkled area using injections. Each Juvéderm volume enhancer has unique benefits that treat specific issues.
Which Juvéderm treatment is right for you? Here is a brief introduction to the Juvéderm products offered by Dr. Philip Miller.
Voluma is an injectable gel that is applied to the cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults who are over the age of 21. Voluma is a non-surgical cheek filler that beautifies the skin by restoring lost volume, lifting loose skin, and reshaping the cheeks. The Voluma™ results may be experienced for up to two years.
Vollure is injected into facial tissue to correct moderate to severe facial folds, such as nasolabial folds and smile lines, in adults over the age of 21. Juvéderm Vollure goes deep into the layers of the skin to add volume to smooth lines and folds.
Vollure is applicable for moderate to severe folds, lines, and wrinkles. It is an excellent treatment that provides outstanding results for men and women for up to 18 months.
Juvéderm Lip Collection
Juvéderm Ultra and Juvéderm Volbella are two formulations in the Juvéderm line that are ready to meet your unique needs. Ultra adds fullness to lips, and Volbella adds subtle volume and softens vertical lip lines. Dr. Phillips offers two Juvéderm lip options so that his patients can walk away with the exact look that they are seeking.
Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus
Ultra and Ultra Plus are FDA-approved for injection into the lips and the perioral area for lip enhancement and augmentation in adults over the age of 21. Ultra Plus includes the addition of lidocaine for added comfort during the injection. Both Ultra and Ultra Plus add fullness and plump naturally thin lips or lips that have thinned due to age. This treatment is perfect for individuals who want sexy, plump lips and for those who desire the restoration of volume that has been lost due to age. Ultra and Ultra Plus last up to one year.
Volbella is FDA-approved for lip augmentation and for the correction of perioral lines in adults who are over the age of 21. It is known as the best choice among non-surgical treatments for the subtle beautification of the lips and the reduction of fine lip lines. Volbella provides refreshed, natural-looking lips that match each patient’s unique facial structure. Dr. Miller customizes each treatment to match the patient’s desired outcome. Volbella treats vertical age lines from around the lips and adds beauty to the face and kissably-soft definition to the lips. Volbella lip treatments are affordable and accessible, plus they require no downtime and last up to 12-months.
What to Expect During the Dermal Filler Procedure
During your facial filler treatment, Dr. Miller will follow your prescribed treatment plan and will complete a series of injections, which may include adding lift and shape to your cheeks, filling in lines, wrinkles and folds, replacing lost volume to your lips, or adding new fullness to your lips. To ensure that the filler injection is evenly distributed and that you walk away with smooth, natural results, Dr. Philip Miller may gently massage the area. He will determine the number of doses that he must inject to achieve your desired results, and he may apply ice to reduce swelling and redness.
Your Juvéderm results will be immediate and long-lasting. The treatments are comfortable, and the recovery period is minimal. If you have Voluma injections, you will notice an immediate increase in facial volume and a gentle lifting of your cheeks. Voluma, Ultra, Ultra Plus, and Volbella™ results are immediate and will depend on the treatment that you have completed and on the treatment plan that is created by Dr. Miller during your consultation.
Touch-up treatments every nine months, 12 months or 18 months are recommended to maintain Voluma, Ultra, Ultra Plus, and Volbella by Juvéderm. Dr. Miller will provide you will follow-up procedures to ensure that you keep the look that you love.
