Melanotan Tanning Instruction
Melanotan 1 synthetic melanocyte stimulating hormone (a-MSH) induces skin pigmentation through melanogenisis, melanin production. Melanin prevents cellular damage in the skin by absorbing, reflecting and refracting light. Melanotan reduces sun damage to UV exposed skin transforming cells to produce dark protective melanin.
- Range: 250mcg – 2mg
Melanotan Results: Melanotan favors production of eumelanin (black/brown) over pheomelanin pigment. Injecting this linear amino acid Melanotan 1 peptide offers super-physiological levels of tanning ability.
|Fitzpatrick Skin Type||Description|
|I||Extremely fair skin, always burn, never tans.|
|II||Fair skin, always burns, sometimes tans.|
|III||Medium skin, sometimes burns, always tans.|
|IV||Olive skin, rarely burns, always tans.|
|V||Moderately pigmented brown skin, never burns, always tans.|
|VI||Markedly pigmented black skin, never burns, always tans.|
Research Use: The half-life of Melanotan peptides is very brief. Afamelanotide is being developed in implant form for the ease of use in dermatology. The implant contains a controlled release effecting melanin density for months. Melanotan One is offered in research peptide form online for frequest low dose controlled subcutaneous inject.
Lifestyle: Melanocortins have the potential to be the next big thing in lifestyle cosmetic treatment (Viagra, Botox, etc). Melanotan can be appropriately used continuously as well as intermittently.
Recommended Therapy: Intermittent therapy, lasting 10 days (skin type III) to 6 months (skin type I) works well. Take note how long after your Melanotan administration melanin density stays elevated.
Peptide Molecule: Two amino acids present in the bodies natural a-MSH have been changed in production of Melanotan 1 increasing stablity. Melanotan only works when injected subcutaneously.
Amino acid sequence: Ac-Ser-Tyr-Ser-Nle-Glu-His-D-Phe-Arg-Trp-Gly-Lys-Pro-Val-NH2
Clinical Trial: Melanotan is still undergoing clinical trials and has not reached approved status. People use on the pretenses and understanding that it is for research purposes only. Users may suffer from slight nausea and flushing after subcutaneous injection; however it is reported to be mild and pass quickly.
Administration of Research Melanotan
Safe and controlled administration of Afamelanotide for research is done much like that of Melanotan 2. Melanotan One offered as a peptide in a multi-dose sterile vial is desirable. Implants, nasal sprays and pills are not applicable/efficacious at the present time.
Melanotan One is less efficacious than its counterpart Melanotan 2 for achieving a dark tan. Afamelanotide will therefore require 8-10x the dosage to see comparable results. Melanotan One users want minimum side and peripheral effects with a focus on photoprotection. Be patient and prepared through your Melanotan journey.
Melanotan Treatment: Dosing According to Skin Type
|Fitzpatrick Skin Type||Dosage||Description|
|I||1mg-2mg/day||100mg total may be necessary to achieve desired color. UV exposure after at least 20mg in system.|
|II||.75mg-1.5mg/day||60mg should be sufficient to get color. UV exposure after 10-20mg.|
|III||.5mg-1mg/day||A sunless tan may be realistic.|
|IV||Do not use Melanotan.||–|
|V||Do not use Melanotan.||–|
|VI||Do not use Melanotan.||–|
Melanotan therapy can assist the develop a protective tan in users. A natural tan is developed in response to cell damage caused by UV radiation. Ultraviolet rays penetrate the upper layers of the skin, triggering a-MSH, stimulating melanin production. Melanin deposits act as a natural sunblock at the cellular level. Melanotan tanning injections may offer a way to bring upon a safe, cosmetic tan with less damage.
