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.

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  see PICS 2 below
  2. clean the surfaces of the vials with an alcohol wipe which are included with the kits.
  3. clean the surfaces of the water with the alcohol wipe
  4. take the syringe out of the packaging and push the needle part into the side of the water 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  1 Below
  5. slowly inject water into the vial with MT2, pushing the needle through the centre of the grey cap which was below the yellow cap (there is a circle raised top of the grey cap use this as a guide for the centre, if you feel resistance you may need to place the needle slightly off centre)   see PICS 2 below
  6. Once the needle is in the vial try to aim so  the water goes on  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. FOR MIXING NASAL REPEAT THIS STEP  USING 2 FULL SYRINGES OF WATER PER VIAL.
  7. carefully roll the Melanotan 2 vials between your fingers to help the Melanotan 2 to dissolve into a solution ( NEVER SHAKE THE VIAL)
  8. once the mixture is ready, put it into the fridge until you are ready to use it

For mixing nasal spray use, use the steps above putting 2 full syringes of water per vial, draw the solution out of both vials and place into the nasal spray bottle (gently).

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.

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. If you would like to email Trutan and before and after pics that would be great and we’ll email you an extra special discount code.
