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 top 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, or the top of the glass water vial (while inverted, ensuring the tip of the needle is in the water at all times).

  • Now pull back the plunger of the syringe so you withdraw 1.0 ml 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 solution.

  • Pull the plunger right back to the maximum mark. Holding the Melanotan 2 Tanning Injection vial upright, insert the syringe and depress the plunger fully (this is to equalise the air pressure in the vial which makes it easier to take out the Melanotan 2).

  • 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.

        Administering the Melanotan 2

  • Select a new syringe and insert it into the top of the vial

  • Leaving the syringe in the Melanotan 2 Tanning Injection vial, turn everything upside down (ensure the tip of the needle is always in the liquid)

  • Pull the plunger until you have 0.1 ml of Melanotan 2 in the syringe and slowly remove it 

  • Find a fleshy area of your skin - 4cm to the side of your belly button is the most common.  Wipe the area with one of the alcohol wipes included.

  • Pinch 2cm either side of the area to be injected.

  • Holding the syringe like a pen, and at 90 degrees to your skin, swiftly insert the syringe into your skin. 

  • Fully depress the plunger so all the Melanotan 2 has emptied from the syringe and slowly withdraw.

  • Hold the alcohol wipe on the injected area for a minute.

You have now administered your first dose of Melanotan 2. Tanning Injection

Dose frequency

From our own personal experiences, and from comments from our customers, we recommend that you carry out your Melanotan 2 Tanning injections just before you go to bed.  This will make the initial side effects less noticeable.

To enable your body to get used to the Melanotan 2 entering your body, we recommend new users of Melanotan 2 to inject half the amount to enable your body to get used to it.  Do this every other day until you have administered four doses of Melanotan 2.  Now you can administer the full dosage of Melanotan 2.

Keep injecting Melanotan 2 every other day and have one to two sunbed sessions a week until you have the colour that you desire.

Once you have the colour that you truly desire, you only need administer one dose of Melanotan 2 per week.  Sunbed sessions are only required once every other week.

You are now the envy of all your friends !!
