Melanotan II injection therapy can be prescribed to both men and women to increase skin pigmentation for sunless tanning and to overcome symptoms of sexual dysfunction. In men it can help induce erections and restore erectile function. In women it can influence subjective arousal and desire.
Melanotan II Benefits
PRODUCES ERECTIONS – Melanotan II can help initiate an erection without the need for sexual stimulation.
TANNING OF THE SKIN – Melanotan II is similar to a substance in our bodies, called “melanocyte-stimulating hormone,” which increases the production of skin-darkening pigments.
About Melanotan II
Melanotan II is a melanocortin-4 receptor agonist that activates key internal pathways important in sexual response. Deep inside the brain, the substance activates hypothalamic and limbic emotional structures that naturally flare during sexual arousal.
Research has shown that synthetic melanotropic peptides can help initiate erections in men with psychogenic erectile dysfunction (erectile dysfunction caused by predominantly psychological versus physiologic causes). Similar positive effects can be seen in women with low libido.
Melanocortin also stimulates melanogenesis, a process responsible for pigmentation primarily of the hair and skin.
Melanocortin receptors can affect adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) as well as activation of the melanocortinreceptors responsible for its effect on pigmentation, regulation of appetite, metabolism and sexual behavior.
Melanotan II injection therapy may cause nausea, stomach cramps, decreased appetite, flushing, tiredness, yawning, darkened skin, spontaneous erections of the penis, and other side effects. The libido increases 2 to 6 hours after injections with a peak at around 12 hours and can last for 24-36 hours.
Combining this with a PDE-5 medication (Viagra, Cialis) may be a successful combination, but should only be done when your medical provider is aware of your condition and medication use.
There is a risk for priapism (prolonged erection) with the use of this injection with or without other medications.
