How do melanin injections work?
There are two forms of melanin injections available, Melanotan I and II, which are diluted in water before being injected.
“Melanotan I or afamelanotide is an alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha MSH) analogue which stimulates the production of eumelanin (tanning pigment) in the skin”, says Dr Catherine. “It was developed and registered for the treatment of a condition called erythropoietic protopophyria – a rare inherited condition that causes sufferers to develop prolonged burning pain, swelling and redness after 1-20minutes of sun exposure.”
In comparison, “Melanotan II as a tanning injection gives quicker, longer lasting results”, says Skin Expert, Lorena Öberg “However, Melanotan II will not work without some form of UV exposure, so you need to be getting a minimum of 20 minutes of natural sunlight a day to help activate the melanotan injections. melanotan 2 dosage
