What is Ultracol 200?
The Ultracol dermal filler is the world’s first powder filler in the field of cosmetology and aesthetics, which entails a groundbreaking scientific breakthrough brought by modern-day science. Dermal fillers are a non-surgical alternative for facelifts because it involves the injections of a substance into facial areas that need lifting, including the eyebrows, nasolabial folds, cheeks, jaws, and lips. Furthermore, it offers facial rejuvenation, which makes our skin look young, healthy, and plump.
Dermal Fillers are one of the most popular aesthetic means to treat skin aging. Currently, it is ranked second most typical non-surgical treatments performed with 58% growth in utilization frequency. Some examples of dermal fillers are Botox and thread lifting, and these treatments help individuals with prominent skin aging, especially in the facial areas, delay its further indications. The face consists of varying tissue layers that have their respective functions, including hydration, protection, elasticity, and firmness. However, aging interferes with the body’s natural production of necessary regenerative properties because aging involves gradual deterioration. Thus, illnesses become more apparent in the early fifties and beyond, especially if you are not taking good care of your body. Moreover, facial fats and protein production slow down, leading to skin laxity. Extrinsic factors and an unhealthy lifestyle also exacerbate it.
The Ultracol 200 has polydioxanone or PDO that can reshape and contour sagging facial features, and the one who oversaw this breakthrough is a Korean Ultra V company. It does not contain unnecessary and toxic substances found in other facial fillers. Instead, it comprises PDO macromolecules, a biodegradable synthetic polymer that stimulates the body’s collagen production via a natural process. As a result, the skin becomes firmer and significantly glowing.
The Ultracol has 5cc in one vial, equivalent to 1,400 pieces of PDO mono threads concerning lifting effects. Thread lifting uses bio-compatible and absorbable threads, but the Ultracol acts as a trigger or stimulant when in contact with skin. Thus, this is an excellent alternative and better method to thread lifting, especially if you worry about having threads embedded beneath the skin.
How does it work?
The Ultracol 200 Dermal Filler is an injectable utilized to treat skin aging issues, including skin laxity, dark circles, eye bags, and dull skin. It has a mixture of 170 mg polydioxanone and 30mg carboxymethylcellulose in a 200 mg vial. The carboxymethylcellulose mixed with it is a medically proven safe substance commonly found in the food industry (among food products) and pharmaceuticals, so there is no need to be alarmed. Additionally, it is a binding agent that helps avoid unwarranted clumping in the skin. The product has superb stimulating effects in facial areas with deep creases and wrinkles, such as the glabella and under-eye. Additionally, it provides an optimal solution in the cheek and perioral area. The recommended dosage for this treatment is 21G to 25G cannula, but it depends on the administering doctor.
The vial is transferred to injection because the treatment involves the penetration of the skin beneath the surface to trigger the body’s natural regenerative properties. Since it involves frequent injections into specific facial areas, a topical numbing cream is necessary for the procedure.
At the AMOA640 Skin Clinic, we frequently administer the Ultracol 200 Dermal Filler to treat dark circles, eye bags, and other skin issues around the eyes because patients find the results promising. We also administer it to other facial areas, but you need to consult with our dermatologist first.
The Ultracol 200 Dermal filler is a KFDA-approved and certified non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment for skin aging and eye bags, but a consultation beforehand is a must. First, you will consult with our dermatologist so that they may assess your skin condition and analyze whether you are a good fit for it. No matter how safe a procedure is, you must first let a board-certified dermatologist evaluate your skin condition and its severity for your assurance and safety. The consultation will allow you to avoid further skin damage, allergic reaction, and medical ailments. Additionally, the doctor may suggest you incorporate other treatments with the Ultracol 200, but only if the doctor allows it. You have the option to follow it or not, but we highly suggest you take it for the best results. Patients commonly prefer to use the Ultracol 200 to treat under-eyes issues, but you may consult the doctor if you desire to have it in other areas.
Once the doctor has approved the procedure, the licensed technician will escort you to one of our rooms to prep your skin because it is vital in all facial treatments that the skin is free of impurities and make up for optimal results. A topical numbing cream will be slathered onto your face after the skin preparation to avoid any discomfort throughout the procedure since it involves continuous penetration (manually). Then, the doctor will administer 1cc of the Ultracol 200 dermal filler (per vial) via injection because that is the recommended dosage we use at the Clinic. Also, please note that only doctors are allowed to administer procedures like the Ultracol 200.
Afterward, the technician will put the necessary post-treatment creams (if there are any) and sunscreen because sunscreen is life!

The Ultracol 200 dermal filler is a KFDA-approved and certified treatment that treats skin aging and under eyes issues. It has a microparticle mixture of polydioxanone and carboxymethylcellulose commonly used in thread lifting. It has absorbable properties and stimulators and is proven safe.
If you’re one of the many individuals suffering from prominent eyebags and dark circles caused by aging, amplified by extrinsic factors, such as inadequate sleep and an unhealthy lifestyle, then this may be good for you! Additionally, Ultracol is one of the newest generations of dermal fillers with promising results. Thus, it is an excellent alternative to surgical facelifts and other non-surgical lifting, including Botox and thread lifting. However, unlike non-surgical treatments for skin boosters, the Ultracol 200 is temporary, so you must manage your expectations, for it cannot achieve incisional treatment (under eye fat grafting, repositioning). Nevertheless, the results can last up to a year, and their utilization frequency depends on the doctor’s recommendation. Although many patients have found one session to be sufficient, the doctor recommends three sessions at most for optimal results. The treatment is appropriate for individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity and aging issues. It is also minimally invasive, so if you’re reluctant because of other facial boosters, you may opt to take this one.
