Not everyone is the same and skin types vary. Fortunately there is an established method for classifying skin type known as the Fitzpatrick Skin Type which was initially developed in 1975 by Thomas Fitzpatrick, MD, of Harvard Medical School. Using the Fitzpatrick method there are four main types:
Type 1: Pale skin, many freckles, blue/green eyes, red hair, rarely tan, nearly always burn
Type 2: Fair skin, few freckles, blue/hazel eyes, blonde/sandy hair, tans poorly, usually burns
Type 3: Darker white skin, brown hair/eyes, usually tans, rarely burns
Type 4: Light brown skin, darker brown hair/eyes, tans easily, burns minimally
The frequency and dosage of Melanotan 2 injections will depend largely on your own particular skin type.
A typical treatment would be during the initial loading phase injections would be made every other day until the desired skin pigment is achieved. After that you would revert to a maintenance phase whereby injecting once a week or once every two weeks might be considered sufficient. Once a tan has been achieved if you stop taking Melanotan 2 you would expect the body’s pigment to return to pre-Melanotan 2 levels within two months.
