    Default Quick Update - It works !

    Yeah Birdman, I find it weird as well but probably people are apprehensive in going through the entire procedure on their own.

    I have successfully done 4 prp sessions at home by myself. Let me put across some of the hurdles i had faced initially -

    1. Getting the anticoagulent : I had no clue searched a lot and spoke to suppliers in china (alibaba.com) who make hair prp specific anticoagulents (ACD GEL). But then found a local vendor for much cheaper. (if anyone needs any info message i will be glad to help)

    2. The right needle gauge size for drawing blood and to inject painlessly in the scalp.
    Drawing blood - 24 gauge neede with a 10-12 cap syringe.
    Injecting in scalp - get those diabetic injections (you wont feel a thing) size 31 G.

    3. Some one to help draw blood - I got my maid to help me out here ;/ .... i know had no other choice, besides just needed some one to pull the syringe once placed. Chekout youtube as well.... ohhh and please dont use a fan like julio above, buy a machine by youself, it doesnt cost much online (49$max)

    Thats it - What i can guarantee is this ....... PRP works no doubt about it and its not a one time process you have to do it regularly at least once a month to ensure that your results hold. And its the best thing out there better than

    Note - i did go for close to 1 year of PRP sessions before, transfer to a new location got me in a fix. So had to take some risks and it was worth it

    Okay, no we're talking!

    "Yeah Birdman, I find it weird as well but probably people are apprehensive in going through the entire procedure on their own. "


    ...Maybe so, but you'd figure the interest would be there to witness actual results from a fellow forum member who would have no reason to boast of amazing results if they were not actually happening. You aren't trying to sell a high-end PRP separation product, so you'd think more people would be interested in your efforts?

    1. Getting the anticoagulent

    ...I suffered the same as well. I ended up ordering 40 BD vacutainer tubes with the ACD already inside from Ebay. I transfer the ACD from the tubes over into to an empty sterile vial. I'm drawing into a 60ml syringe, so I'm adding my ACD straight into the 60ml syringe.

    2. The right needle gauge size for drawing blood and to inject painlessly in the scalp.

    ... I have a friend over in Europe who managed to score me some 4mm 30g pins (which is the same length pin Eurosearch recommends for their LinErase collagen injections. I could probably use 6mm pins as well, but have yet to find them. For drawing blood I'm using a standard 21g butterfly.

    3. Some one to help draw blood

    ...I use a 10" tube between my 21g pin and my 60ml syringe. I can hold the syringe with my left hand (pinned arm) and draw the blood with my right. I do this instead of drawing directly into the vacutainer tubes.

    I have only self-administered one session so far consisting of two PRP injection areas (head and face). I use the PRP with my Derminator microneedling device (only on face). For my scalp I use a 2.0mm dermastamp (after pinning the PRP). That was one month ago today, so today will be my 2nd treatment.

    I have reproduced the entire setup found in this video clip including the spiffy syringe holder. I also scored me some PGE1 and two types of activators (CaCl2 and a physical activator device).

    Let's keep this thread growing and share our info and results. If we show pics and document what we do, maybe this will catch on?

    Default Aint no sales man boy.....

    Dude, really dont give a damn if you think im trying to sell anything over here.

    For results and pictures to be honest why would i spend that much time in clicking pictures and uploading them - (i can if more than a few 'polite' people insist)

    1. PRP - Go online on alibaba.com, i dont own this its freaking alibaba everyone knows that you can priety much order anything in quanity and the chinese will make it ---- as i couldnt find this locally initially i did chat online with someone who was selling branded PRP tubes with boitin mixed especially for Hair prp.

    Priety tempting but i choose a local fellow cause it was less expensive and had only ACD gel. Also, there are kits that are available online for people to buy specifically meant for hair PRP.

    2. Cool you have the butterfly so no apparent issues with drawing blood. I on the other hand was going old school with this. Needle size honestly 21 is hardcore but choose whatever is fine with you. The needle to used to prick is a diabetic syringe of 31G, take my word on this go to any chemist and you should get this. (not painfull and the right size for scalp injections)

    I am in my early 30s and have had this problem crop up in the past 4-5 years. Since prp is the only thing that keep the hairfall to a near zero and maintains the thickness as well. I also use a morf 5% along with finasteride 1mg on a every alternate day basis for the past few years. (No sexual problems, being thrusting away to glory lol

    For people who havent formed a bald patch yet and are feeling hopeless, well i have been in your position. I have been taking preventive measures thats priety much it........

    Best of luck to you all.....

    "Dude, really dont give a damn if you think im trying to sell anything over here."

    ...I hope you don't think I was accusing you of that. If you re-read what I wrote, I was pointing out that your experiences should be viewed as being more honest because clearly you are NOT trying to sell some company's PRP products.

    Although I don't think you are that interested in having this thread evolve into a "repeatable process" that others who end up tuning in can follow, ...so I'll just go ahead ans start my own thread.

    Best of luck to you, as well.

    Also, I used steroids for over ten years, so I am no stranger to slin pins. And 21g is not as bad as it seems for blood draw. I had to use 23g pins twice a week for my test injects because of the oil thickness (deep muscle injects). For HGH and peptides I used the standard 30g variety. Slin pins with fixed 31g (or higher) needles can bend or break off in the stopper.

    Since I self-inject my Bocouture, dermal fillers and my PRP, it becomes fairly awkward getting the correct angle, depressing the plunger and correctly injecting a uniform amount in a targeted area. For this reason, I'm using a special syringe from Vlow Medical that insures a uniform amount of product is injected with each depression.




    ...I've been around, my friend.
