    I really cannot believe you guys are going ahead and trying to do PRP from home, you have no formal training and relying on searching online for answers, it's just crazy.

    I would hate to read on hear that someone has seriously harmed themselves through doing this procedure by themselves, honestly, leave this treatment to the experts in the field.

    Hi guys, signed up just for this thread.

    Tonight/today I completed my first round of PRP at home. Not sure how well it went. I'll outline difficulties below;

    1. My centrifuge seemed to get very hot after spinning for 5mins, first spin lasted 15mins @ 4000rpm with 4 x 9mm viles. The samples came out warm and I am not sure if this normal. I bought the one recommended in the thread the 800D desktop model - anyone else have this issue?

    2. I had an issue trying to get the buffy coat as I am not 100% which is exactly the buffy coat, I know its the white layer between the PPP and RBC but on my sample it was a thin sticky layer ontop of the RBC portion. I took out all the yellow PPP with as much of this white layer (small amount of RBC too) and spun it a 2nd time. I then took the top 2/3rds and saved it for derma rolling.

    3. I used a 3ml syringe and the 4mm needle mention in the thread. As a previous user mention, I also had difficulty getting the buffy coat in to the need. The bottom 1/3rd had the white layer ontop of the small amount of RBC after the 2nd spin. I wasn't sure if I should use the entire sticky white coat for the injection - can anyone clarify? I saw a method on youtube where they use a syringe just above the white layer and use a "tornado" method to spin the white layer into the lower portion of the left over 1/3rd PPP. I tried this but ended up sucking in most of the white layer and mixed it with some RBC and the PPP.

    4. Injecting with the 4mm needle, I really don't know how much went in to my scalp. It all seemed to run down my face or just pool out of the injection area. Sometime it did seem to go in, sometimes it didn't. I tried many different angles, 90, 45, 30 .... Has anyone had success with this or any other size needle? The videos I saw they use much larger needles and get large bumps under the skin in the areas its injected. So I do not know how much went in, overall I think I only had about 4-5ml of PRP total and maybe half that went into the scalp(?).

    I will try to update again the results in 2 weeks, if anyone could answer my questions / comment on the above, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Default Blood Draw Help

    Hi everybody,

    First off, thanks for all of the great info. Really appreciate everyone sharing what has and hasn't worked.

    From what I read the entire process doesn't seem overly complex, but I'm concerned about drawing my own blood. I have no experience doing this and don't have any family or friends who would be able to help. Does anybody know of a way to get blood drawn and keep it. I've tried talking to a couple labs, but they will only draw it if you're having a test done. If anybody has any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

    Gday guys,

    Long time reader, first time poster. I thought I would share my PRP experience, since Ive done 3 at home. A bit of background me, Im 28 and have been on finasteride for the past 10 years. Ive tried everything under the sun, and PRP was really the last chance I had. I saw cosmetic surgeons and asked about what products, and methods they are doing. But didn't want to spend my lifesavings on something that may not work.
    Anyway, I got the equipment from Alibaba. Very simple process. The first time I did it, I wasn't exactly sure on what I was doing. I ended up taking too much of the liquid (some would have been Platelet Pool Plasma). Anyway, I had some shedding for a day or two after. Since the, everything has come up Millhouse. Im barely getting any shedding and seeing much more volume.

    I don't have any strict timeframes for when my injection should be. I make this decision when I start to notice shredding.

    I would love to get off Finasteride, its shit for your sex drive and there has been research linking it to testicular cancer. I do wonder what the results would be if i stoped taking the drug...

    The most challenging part is the blood draw. My partner would freak if she knew about this. Ive been doing it solo. It gets a bit messy. Having someone help would make it a million times easier, but I don't know who I can trust.

    In summary, it is actually the simplest process, and very low risk. Im based in Brisbane, Australia and have considering how I could commercialise this. Just to go work out how to protect myself legally. Im not a doctor.

    Good luck with everyones efforts. Fortune favours the brave

    Speak to an off-duty nurse. Don't mention its for PRP (they might freak). ...Cant think of a suitable excuse at the moment... sorry man.

    Try AirTasker - look for a nurse and get her to assist you. If she asks "What's it for" don't mention PRP - she will freak.

    I've watched videos on drawing blood and roughly know whats involved. Although I have only done it solo, I would recommend 2 people. Try AirTasker - look for a nurse and get her to assist you. If she asks "What's it for" don't mention PRP - she will freak.
