Melanotan II Description
Melanotan II is a peptide hormone belonging to the
alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH) class of mimetics.
Melanotan II is a synthetic analog pituitary derived Melanocortin.
The peptide is primarily known for its ability to help with tanning
but is also used to aid in erectile function. Melanotan II, also
referred to as MT-2, has no use of significance beyond tanning and
Melanotan II Effects
The effects of Melanotan two revolve around nothing more than
tanning and possible erectile dysfunction relief. A darker and
deeper tan may be noticed in a few days (assuming one is also
tanning) and should produce notable results in a few weeks. The
longer one uses MT-2 the darker he will get.
The effects of Melanotan II on erectile dysfunction take
approximately 4-6 hours to take effect and should last 6-12 hours
depending on individual response. Timing is important if used for
this purpose. However, there are those that run small daily to
every other day doses in order to provide a maintenance relief, but
this can prove problematic to the skin if not careful.
Melanotan II Dosage
Melanotan II is provided in freeze-dried (lyophilized) form and
reconstituted with bacteriostatic water. MT-2 may be injected
subcutaneously or intramuscularly with subcutaneous being the most
common and convenient. Melanotan II should be kept refrigerated at
all times, and should be discarded in 30 days after reconstitution.
Melanotan II is typically taken at a dose of 0.5-2mg per day with
0.5-1mg being enough for most individuals who use it for tanning
purposes. The same 0.5-1mg dosing is sufficient for erectile
How to use Melanotan 2 Mixing the solution
Flip off the cap from the Melanotan 2 Tanning Injection vial.
Wipe the surface of the top of the vial with the enclosed alcohol
wipe and discard the wipe.
Wipe the surface of the injectable water tube (or glass water vial
depending on the pack ordered) with the enclosed alcohol wipe and
discard the wipe.
Remove the enclosed syringe from the packaging. Making sure the
injectable water tube is upright, insert the needle of the syringe
into the sidewall of the water.
Now pull back the plunger of the syringe so you withdraw 1ml of
water and slowly pull the syringe out.
Insert the syringe into the Melanotan 2 Tanning Injection vial and
depress the plunger so you completely empty the syringe of the
water and slowly remove the syringe from the vial. Do not shake the
Place the Melanotan 2 solution in the fridge for storage until
ready for use.
Make sure you put the syringe caps on and carefully dispose of it.
You have now mixed your Melanotan 2 Tanning Injection solution.
Please store the solution in the fridge.
How to use Melanotan II for tanning
Melanotan II is typically provided in vials containing 10 mg of
lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder. The vials are reconstituted with
a convenient amount of bacteriostatic or sterile water, added to
the vial by syringe. An example convenient amount of water is 2.5
mL. When this amount of water is used, the resulting solution
contains 4 mg of MT-II per mL. If for example wishing to take a
dose of 1 mg, a volume of 0.25 mL, or "25 IU" as marked on an
insulin syringe, would be taken by injection. Injection may be
subcutaneous, intramuscular, or intravenous, according to personal
Injection typically is only once per day, but where a person is
first trying the drug and judging tolerance, injection may be
divided into two smaller amounts per day.
Typical dosage range is 0.5 to 2.0 mg/day, with a preferred range
of 0.5 to 1.0 mg/day. However, it's best to first assess tolerance
with lower dosing of 0.25 mg at a time.
After reconstitution, a Melanotan II vial should preferably be
consumed entirely within 30 days. Prior to reconstitution, MT-II
should be stored in the refrigerator or freezer, but it's
acceptable for it to be shipped without refrigeration.
Use generally should be discontinued if MT-II, in the individual
case, causes problems with increased growth, number, or darkness of
Melanotan II's effect is fairly long-lasting. It can even be the
case that it takes a year or more for a cycle's effect to largely
disappear. Use of maintenance cycles can maintain effect
indefinitely. As a rule of thumb, maintenance typically requires
about 2 to 3 times as much MT-II per year as was needed for the
first cycle. This can be taken either as a total of 2 to 3 cycles
per year done in the same way as the initial cycle, or any more
frequent dosing pattern providing this total amount of MT-II per
What is Melanotan 2 ?
Melanotan 2 Tanning Injections (otherwise known as MT2) was first
synthesized at the University of Arizona. Researches there knew
that onc of the best defenses against skin cancer was melanin
activated in the skin, a tan. They hypothesized that an effective
way to reduce skin cancer rates in people would be to induce the
body's natural pigmentary system to produce a protective tan prior
to UV exposure. The body's naturally occuring hormone MSH causes
melanogenesis, a process by which the skin's pigment cells
(melanocytes) produce the skin's pigment (melanin). They tested to
see if administering this endogenous hormone to the body directly
could be an effective method to cause sunless tanning. What they
found was that while it appeared to work, natural MSH had too short
a half life in the body to be practical as a therapeutic drug. So
they decided to find a more potent and stable alternative, one that
would be more practical.
After synthesizing and screening hundreds of molecules, the
researchers headed by Victor J. Hruby and Mac E. Hadley, found a
peptide, [Nle4, D-Phe7] MSH, that was approimately 1,000 times more
potent than the natural MSH. They dubbed this new peptide molecule,
"Melanotan" (later Melanotan-1, now know as afamelanotide). They
subsequently developed another analog,
Ac-Nle-cyclo[Asp-His-D-Phe-Arg-Trp-Lys]-NH2), which they called
"Melanotan" Tanning Injections. The scientists hoped to use these
peptides to combat melanoma by stimulating the body's natural
pigmentary mechanism to create a tan without first needing exposure
to harmful levels of UV radiation. This in turn, they hypothesized,
could reduce the potential for skin damage that can eventually lead
to skin cancer.
A pilot phase I clinical trial conducted on three males by the
College of Medacine, Pharmacology Department, University of Arizona
in Tuscon, Arizona pulished in 1996 reported that, "Melanotan"
Tanning Injections has tanning activity in humans given only 5 low
doses every other day by subcutaneous injection." The side effects
reported were mild nausea and a "stretching and yawning complex"
that correlated with spontaneous penile erections.
The Department of Pharmacology, University of Arizona College of
Medacin published in 1998 that involved 10 men who suffered from
psychogenic erectile dysfunction. Their trial concluded that,
"Melanotan" Tanning Injections is a potent initiator of erections
in men with pyschogenic erectile dydfunction and has manageable
side effects at a dose of 0.025mg/kg.
A clinical study published in 2000 of 20 men with psychogenic and
organic erectile dysfunction conducted at the Section of Urology of
The University of Arizona College of Medacin concluded, "that
Melanotan II Tanning Injections is a potent initiator of penile
erection in men with ecrectile dysfunction.
Melanotan II benefits
Lasting Tan:Even if dosage is stopped, a warm sun-kissed tan can
last for months at a time without any exposure to the
sun.Conversely, tans developed naturally fade in around a months
Flexibility of Use:Able to take a small loading dose with continued
dosing until desired skin pigmentation is achieved.Once achieved
only need to dose once every couple of weeks to maintain same
Reduced exposure to sunlight (UV rays):Melanotan still needs
exposure to sunlight to be effective.However it will allow the user
a significant reduction in time to develop desired tan .
