How to Mix and use Melanotan 2

Even the most quality product can appear ineffective if not used properly. That’s why it’s crucial to carefully read the instructions for any drug you take, regardless of the intensity of the impact it has on your organism. We have developed a thorough guide on how to use Melanotan 2 to help you get the most out of it and avoid unwanted side-effects. Please, read it carefully to make your treatment safe and resultative.

How to mix MT2 vials.

The product comes in two separate flasks. Their contents should be combined to get one solution. Mixing Melanotan 2 does not take much trouble. However, there are certain rules to follow to ensure the substance works appropriately. Please, take these steps to reap maximum rewards from your treatment:

  1. pull off the yellow cap from Melanotan 2 injection vial
  2. open the bottle with sterile water
  3. clean the surfaces of the vials with an alcohol wipe which are included with the kits.
  4. take the syringe out of the packaging and fill the syringe with water 1 full syringe is 1ml of water (some people add another quarter of  water to the solution as this may reduce the initial side effects)*. SEE PICS
  5. slowly inject water into the vial with MT2 (push =ing the need through the centre of the grey cap which was below the yellow cap), try to aim the needle and  the water to the side of the vial and not directly onto the MT2. If you are adding another quarter of a syringe 0.25ml repeat the step above.
  6. carefully roll the Melanotan 2 vials between your fingers to help the Melanotan 2 to dissolve into a solution ( NEVER SHAKE THE VIAL)
  7. once the mixture is ready, put it into the fridge until you are ready to use it

The mixed Melanotan solution can be stored in a fridge for up to six months. The shelf life of the unmixed product is about 12 months in  cool dark place.

*People with a low tolerance level to reduce tanning injection side effects may wish to either micro dose 0.05ml  (20th of a syringe) for the first 3-4 days or add double the amount of water when mixing the solution.

What type of syringe, should you use? if you buy a kit the correct syringes will be enclosed, however if you decide to buy syringes from another store you need an ultra fine 1ml fixed needle syringe which needs to be either 29g or 30g (g measure the thickness of the needle part).  See the pics below for the amount of water per vial depending on the type of syringe you are using.

  1. Take the mixed MT2 vial. Push the needle part of the syringe through the grey cap centre (like you did when filling the vial with water).
  2. Pull back on the plunger to fill the syringe with 0.1ml ( of the mixed solution and withdraw the needle the first main marker which is around 10th of a syringe)*.
  3. Locate the shot site in your belly area (a few centimetres away from the navel) and clean it with a swab (see pic*).
  4. Pinch / nip 1-2 cm of skin you tummy fat tissue about  four fingers distance from your belly button, this will help you not to go too deep.
  5. Insert the needle into the area you hold at a 90-degree angle (see pic **). Do not withdraw it until you administer the entire 0.1ml of the solution in the syringe. IMPORTANT: If you are slim and have little fatty tissue you may need to  insert the needle at a 45 degree angle. You should not go through the fatty layer (subcutaneous layer) of you skin.

The right Melanotan 2 dosage revealed

If you want to achieve the best results, it makes sense to use Melanotan regularly. However, it should be no more than once a day. Take maximum  0,1ml (10th of a syringe) every night before going to bed this help reduce the feelings of the initial side effects. . After the fourth injection you will need some UV exposure to kick start Melanotan 2’s action and then continue with the jabs every night and UV exposure every other day until you get the colour you desire. Once the desired result is achieved, you can reduce  MT2 jabs use to one dose a week and sunbath less frequently.
