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 0.1ml everyday.

Keep injecting Melanotan 2 every day after day 4 have a sunbed session to kick start the MT, and have a one every other day until you have the colour that you desire.

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