MT2 Effects vs. Sun Tanning
In distinguishing MT2 effects from what can be achieved on a blanket in front of the ocean, we look through the feedback produced during research. One common question we’re often asked is, “How long will my tan last?” According to most resources, a suntan will last between seven to ten days before the skin begins to naturally regenerate. A Melanotan Two tan, however, will typically last twice as long with some sources reporting the tanning effects lasting almost two months.
Sexual MT2 Effects
While it is commonly reported that Melanotan 2 can result in spontaneous erections, does tanning in the sun also result in this side effect? Though no direct evidence exists there is some speculation about this notion being scientifically valid.
There is one reported case of priapism in a man who used MT2 without a doctor’s guidance or recommendation, a case that certainly should be considered. Consequentially, a new drug has recently won FDA approval that is based on Melanotan two but treats Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder in women. No evidence could be found that treating HSDD with suntanning has any beneficial effect.
MT2 For Suntanning
One effect of Melanotan 2 is the increased production of melanin resulting in darker skin pigmentation. A particular study was able to demonstrate how afamelanotide, a synthetic peptide in the same class as MT2, applied topically is potentially viable to prevent UV exposure. Still, physician recommended sunscreen should be applied even after establishing a base tan with Melanotan 2.
Which is Best?
Always work with your physician to determine how to best achieve a skin tan. While MT2 effects may seem attractive, they may not be feasible for your particular situation. Your doctor may want you to establish a base tan with MT2 before spending some time down at the beach. Go slow and always work with your team!
