Top 7 Things to Know About Melanotan

  1. What is Melanotan?

Melanotan is one kind of peptide that fortifies the natural secretion of melanin. If you apply this peptide on someone, it will circulate inside his/her skin and the skin will be darker when he/she will expose to UV rays. Melanotan-1 and Melanotan-2 are available analogs that are engineered to darken and tan the skin.

Our skin’s pigment is regulated by melanin which is a naturally secreted hormone. If your body contains more melanin, your skin would be darker than those bodies containing less melanin.  

  1. Difference between Melanotan-1 and Melanotan-2

Melanotan-1 is a less powerful peptide than Melanotan-2. Melanotan-1 takes more time to show the impact. But Melanotan-1 has fewer side effects and it is the more secure alternative than Melanotan-2 (MT-2). Here, you can BUY MT-2 safely. 

  1. Which way is better: Injections, Nasal or Oral?

An injection is the best way to apply this peptide and the result is instant and quite better. The nasal spray method is up to 30%-40% effective because the nasal passage absorbs the peptide slowly. If you use the nasal spray method, you have to apply it at least 2 or 3 times more than the injection method. The injectable Melanotan product is more powerful than the nasal sprayable product. If you use the nasal product, you have to wait four to five weeks after the application to get the final result. But you will get the result after 10 days by using the injection version.

  1. How Long Does Melanotan Take Time to Show Results?

There is no fixed time to get the outcomes. It depends on the application method, the quantity, and the quality of the products. Most people get good results after taking 20mg of Melanotan 2 while some get results after taking only 6mg. On average, you will get the result within 7 to 10 days after starting to take Melanotan.

Sometimes, its effectiveness depends on the skin type.  It takes more time for a light-skinned user. The working rate of Melanotan also depends on exposure to UV.

  1. UV Exposure

Clinical studies say that Melanotan can work without any UV exposure. But if you add 1-2 tanning sessions either ultraviolet rays or the natural sun with the Melanotan dosage, you will achieve the result much faster.

The reason for this is when the melanin level of your skin rises significantly for using Melanotan, the brown pigment of melanin gives the skin its tanned appearance and the UV rays work as an important factor for discharging the melanin of your surrounding skin tissues.

  1. Side Effects

During the time of using Melanotan-2, you can face some little side effects. During the first few days of dosing, it appears most of the time. But your body will adjust itself to the peptide after some days. The most common effects are: – nausea, loss of appetite, increased sex drive, and drowsiness. You can take an anti-histamine during injecting Melanotan until your body gets used to it. It will help you to combat nausea. But the most effective way to deal with drowsiness is to inject Melanotan before going to bed.

Some new freckles can appear because the Melanotan is darkening many freckles that you may not be able to see before using it. We advise you not to exceed the 0.5 mg daily limit to avoid the side effect. 

So, apply it regularly with the right process and don’t use too much Melanotan in a single day to get a quick result. By doing this, you will do harm to yourself. However, if you face any critical problem, then consult with experts.

  1. Avoid Burning

Though tans are one kind of protector that will protect your skin from burning, the Melanotan peptide will not help in this purpose. So, do not overexpose yourself at the starting of this therapy. You have to start the therapy with the amount of exposure that is possible to handle or your skin without burning.
