    Just did my 1st DIY PRP hair treatment. I drew my own blood into two 8.5ml vacutainers, centrifuged twice and injected it into my scalp. The first 6 attempts failed (needle fell out, missed the vein, didn't mix anticoagolent properly, etc...). I still have to workout some of the problems like the syringe to use to inject into scalp. The syringe I used was the same one that diabetics use, purchased from CVS. Filling the syringe didn't work well. I think I need a luerlock syringe with a large bore needle to fill the syringe, and then a small bore needle to inject.

    centrifuged the 8.5ml's twice?

    what syringe and needle did you use to inject? how do you transfer prp into it?

    I used the vacutainers found here (https://www.pulmolab.com/product_inf...RoCv7MQAvD_BwE). I filled 2 of them. Did a low rpm centrifuge, pipette out the yellow PPP and buffy coat into another tube, and then centrifuged that a second time on high RPMs. I used a hypodermic syringe with a 31G needle. I did it again today and it worked. I had to fill the syringe from the top instead of pulling it up through the needle.

    I did my 2nd PRP today and I learned a couple of things. After the 1st centrifuge, when pipetting out the PPP (the yellow), its a good idea to also pipette up the top most red blood cells. That way you are sure to get all the platelets (Platelets only make up 1%). And after the 2nd centrifuge, and after you discard the top 2/3rds of the yellow PPP, its a good idea to pipette out the remainder, but leave the bottom most red blood cells. Red blood cells can cause inflamation.
