If you've never heard of Melanotan, don't be surprised. tanning peptide is a type of peptide that stimulates the production of melanin in the body to provide a deep, natural tan. Melanin is actually your body's natural response to UV damage, darkening the skin slightly to protect it from further damage.
Of course, the problem with exposure to the sun is that getting a full body tan requires plenty of exposure to potentially dangerous amounts of UV radiation which can lead to skin cancer and other dangerous health problems.
Melanotan 2 is a designed to stimulate the body's tanning response with minimal exposure to sunlight. This can be a wonderful way for those with fair to very fair skin to get tanned without having to spend weeks in the sun and going through the burn and heal process.
By using Melanotan 2, users experience quicker tanning and and faster healing to damaged skin cells than would otherwise be possible. Because of this, it is especially suited to those who's skin is pale; those who are at greatest risk of developing skin cancer.
Why Melanotan 2 Used?
This peptide is shipped by vial in a powder dried form that is reconstituted using sterile water and then injected under the skin where is absorbed into the skin itself and spread throughout.
Minimal UV Exposure: Melanotan still requires exposure to sunlight to be effective, however it requires significantly less time to develop a tan than without the peptide.
Flexibility: Users can take a small loading dose and continue dosing until they reach their desired pigmentation, after which time they only need to dose once every couple of weeks to keep the same pigment.
Lasting Tan: Even if dosage is stopped entirely, a warm tan can last for months on end without exposure to the sun. By contrast, tans developed naturally fade in around a month.
Notes and Considerations
Products: There are many products on the market being sold as Melanotan 2 peptides; everything from nasal spray to pills to sprinkle on flakes. Despite their claims of being easier to use, safer and more effective. These products are fake. The peptide is too large to pass through the sinus membrane, making it ineffective as a spray and the enzymes in your stomach would dissolve any orally taken peptides. Truly, the only real way to get the full effect from your regimen is to use injections.
It bears understanding that this type of peptide is not a treatment or cure for anything, nor should it be considered a preventative measure to skin cancer. While Melanotan is known to protect the skin through the natural tanning process, it is not in and of itself a foolproof UV shield, however it is an excellent way for those who don't tan otherwise to get rich golden tans without as much exposure to the sun.
