Sun damage is not pretty and can leave oneself vulnerable to cancer. Melanotan peptides are used to prevent sunlight induced skin cancer by stimulating the tanning process. In doing so, prior moles, freckles and some pigmentation can rise to surface. Beauty marks darken as melanin density increases. The rate of tanning via melanotan peptides vary greatly.
Melanotan II increases the bodies melanocytes production most efficiently in those with fair skin. Within one week moles and freckles become pronounced. Melanocytes in freckles have created a strong concentration of eumelanin, thereby increasing pigmentation of the sun damage. The rest of the skin has its own particular pigmentation balance. The history of melanocyte activity effects the rate of tanning through exogenous melanocyte stimulation (most typically used in conjunction with light controlled ultra-violet therapy). Face, neck, arms and areas most associated with sun exposure are areas which melanogensis activates rapidly.
Reactions to Melanotan II are highly individualized. Dark pigmentation slowly fades. Permanent is difficult to define when it comes to the skin. Experimentation when first using this hormone will be needed. As always, lower doses should be utilized to begin with and increased as needed and as one is able to gauge their tolerance for the super-potent peptide.
Seasoned users acclimate to the product, use less and the product goes further for them. Initially using Melanotan 2 in order to tan is a drastic feat/accomplishment for those with low and/or lacking melanocyte stimulating hormone (MSH) – ie. the fair skinned who cannot tan naturally. Achieving a tan in a low skin type individual via synthetic MSH (Melanotan 2 or MT-II), like aging, will show white spots, pale spots, etc when the skin darkens.
