Melanotan II – Nasal Spray PL

Images are for illustrative purposes only


Melanotan 2 (also referred to as Melanotan II) is a synthetically produced variant of a peptide hormone naturally produced in the body that stimulates melanogenesis, a process responsible for pigmentation of the skin. This peptide hormone, called alpha-Melanocyte stimulating hormone or MSH, activates certain melanocortin receptors in the process of exerting its effects.

Indeed, MSH also exerts potent influence over lipid metabolism, appetite, and sexual libido via these melanocortin receptors. As a result, Melanotan 2 has been shown in studies to exhibit appetite suppressant, lipolytic, and libido-enhancing effects in addition to promoting skin tanning.

Melanotan 2 has been researched extensively for use in protecting against the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation from sunlight due to its melanogenesis-stimulating properties.

Additionally, Melanotan 2 and a similar synthetically produced variant, known as PT-141, have been studied at length as a potential remedy for the treatment of sexual dysfunction; specifically, male erectile dysfunction.

Melanotan II (Melanotan 2) is a synthetically produced variant of a peptide hormone naturally produced in the body that stimulates melanogenesis, a process responsible for pigmentation of the skin. This peptide hormone, called alpha-Melanocyte Stimulating Hormone or MSH, activates certain melanocortin receptors in the process of exerting its effects.

Indeed, MSH also exerts significant control over lipid metabolism, appetite regulation, and sexual libido through its interaction with melanocortin receptors. Research has demonstrated that Melanotan II exhibits a range of effects, including appetite suppression, fat breakdown (lipolysis), and enhanced libido, in addition to its well-known skin tanning properties. These multifaceted actions make this an intriguing peptide with potential applications beyond just cosmetic tanning.

Melanotan II, through its melanogenesis-stimulating properties, has garnered significant research interest for its potential in safeguarding against the detrimental effects of ultraviolet radiation from sunlight. Studies have explored its ability to promote the production of melanin, offering a potential protective mechanism against sun-induced damage to the skin.

In addition to its research on sun protection, Melanotan II and its synthetic counterpart PT-141 have undergone extensive study as potential treatments for sexual dysfunction, particularly male erectile dysfunction. These peptides have been investigated for their ability to enhance sexual function and address issues related to sexual performance, offering promising prospects in the field of sexual health.

Melanotan II Dosage Frequency
The frequency of Melanotan II injections depends on the phase of usage you are in. If you are new to the product or are taking it again for the first time after a period of absence, then you will begin with what is called the “loading phase” and will need to inject every day. Once you have achieved the shade of tan you are happy with, then you can switch to the “maintenance phase” which involves less frequent injections.

Loading Phase

  • How often: One injection, taken every day (7 times per week) For How Long: Until you have achieved your desired shade of tan (this will take 2-6 weeks depending on how often you tan and your skin type).

Maintenance Phase

  • How often: One injection taken 2 or 3 times per week.
  • For How Long: If you want to maintain your shade of tan. Upon cessation of usage, your skin will return to its natural shade in about 1-2 months.

Tanning Frequency
Despite being referred to us a “sunless tanning” agent, Melanotan II (MT2) requires UV exposure to work properly, results without it develop extremely slowly or sometimes not at all. The incidence of side effects such as hyperpigmentation also appears to be higher when Melanotan II is taken on its own and without exposure to the sun or sun beds.

UV exposure recommendations

  • Loading Phase: 2-3 times per week if you wish to develop your tan as quickly as possible, otherwise once per week will allow your tan to build gradually.
  • Maintenance Phase: 1 tanning session per week is usually sufficient to maintain your color. For How Long: 5-10 minutes in a sunbed (solarium) or 20-40 minutes in the sun.
  • Precautions: Do not overexpose yourself to the sun, whilst Melanotan II does reduce sunburn, it only does so by approximately 50% for most users. Therefore, it is still wise to apply sunscreen, especially on sensitive areas. Sunscreen will not affect Melanotan II’s ability to give you a tan.

Tanning Results
If your tan is not developing as quickly as you’d like, then you simply need to increase the frequency of your UV exposure. You should never increase your Melanotan II dosage or injection frequency.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
