Melanotan-II is a lab-made chemical that is similar to a hormone found in people. Be careful not to confuse melanotan-II with melatonin.
Melanotan-II is given as a shot to produce erections in men with ED (erectile dysfunction), tan the skin, and prevent skin cancers caused by sun exposure.
How does it work?
Melanotan-II is similar to a substance in our bodies, called “melanocyte-stimulating hormone,” which increases the production of skin-darkening pigments. Melanotan-II might also work in the brain to stimulate erections of the penis.
How to use it:
10mg vial add 2ml of bac water first starting dose 250mcg draw to tick mark 3 or 5iu i do this before bed in case i get flushing and sick feeling.. If you feel you get the sicky feeling with MT2 get some travel sickness tablets from Boots and take one 30 min before the jab this will ease it a bit ..
Now you know your ok with that dose start the loading phase 500mcg tick mark 5 or 10iu pre bed unless you want to suppress your appetite then inject in the morning ..Now run it at this dose till you reach the colour you want ..Dont forget to tan twice a week to get nice and brown ..10 min is max start on 5 this might sound low but you will be susceptible to burning till you have built up a tolerance . Run this till you reach your desired colour
Maintenance dose i find 500mcg once a week with a tan of 10min every 7 days will keep my tan topped up nicely
Storage ..draw the MT2 from the vial and load up about 40ish syringes normally then put in a tub and freeze ..when you need to do your jab remove one syringe leave on the side for a few minutes or hold in the palm of your hand ,,
How Often to Tan on Melanotan II
The tanning activity of Melanotan II without the need for UV exposure has been proven by clinical trial; however, the majority of users report that results are achieved much quicker, and that the tan is a more natural color, when Melanotan II is combined with a small amount of UV exposure.
Loading: Tanning should start after the third injection and occur 2-3 times per week if you wish to see tanning results quickly; otherwise one tanning session per week is sufficient to gradually build your tan.Maintenance: Skin types 1 & 2 usually need one tanning session per week to maintain their tan. Skin types 3 & 4 often find they can maintain their tan with Melanotan II injections only, however, if you find your color fading then you should go tanning once per week.Things to remember:
If you are not seeing results then you need to increase the frequency of your outdoor or indoor UV exposure (especially if you are skin types 1 or 2). Never increase your recommended Melanotan II dose.
Tanning sessions should be short, 5-10 minutes in a sun bed or 30-40 minutes in the sun on a warm day is sufficient each time. DO NOT overexpose yourself to UV rays.
When starting, always use 30+ sunscreen on sensitive areas such as the face and neck. Because these areas are frequently exposed to UV rays they are more responsive to the melanin producing effects of Melanotan II and therefore will become darker quicker than the rest of the body. Covering these areas initially will allow other parts of the body to tan first, ensuring you achieve a well balanced tan.
Melanotan II and UV exposure complement each other, so if you spend a lot of time tanning you will need less frequent injections of Melanotan II to obtain and maintain your tan. If you don’t spend much time in the sun or sun beds then you will need more frequent dosages of Melanotan II to develop and keep your tan.
