Preserve your own younger follicles and prepare for regenerative hair treatments.
Scientists are leveraging our own cells in clinical trials to treat hair loss. Outcomes include increased hair count, density, strand thickness as well as the potential to grow new hair stock.
Unfortunately, as we get older we lose our ability to regenerate our hair due to stem cell activity decline in our follicles.
But what if you could save your own younger hair follicles and leverage them in the future?
Extracellular vesicles that contain proteins, DNA and RNA. They have an extraordinary ability to promote healing and regeneration.
Epidermal keratinocytes and dermal fibroblasts are found in the follicle. These cells are important building blocks for our skin and hair.
As we age the number of adult stem cells declines continually. By harvesting skin and follicle stem cells now, we save these cells for future reintroduction and rejuvenation.

Eligibility will be based on location, preferences and timing, with availability starting in select regions across North America.
Once available in your region, you'll receive an email with next steps for getting started with Acorn.
We always like to remind people that you need to have some hair on your head - even if only a small amount - for the cell collection session. So if you happen to be someone who shaves their head, you will need to grow just enough hair on a few areas of your head to allow for a set of tweezers to retrieve a few strands of hair. This can be as short as 0.5 cm in length or less

This can be as short as 0.5 cm in length or less While no two people are the same, the average person reaches a peak cellular health in their 20s and then begins an arithmetic decline until their 60s, at which point the pace of aging begins to accelerate considerably. You’re never as young as you will be today, so for most patients, we recommend to bank as early as possible.
We recommend children can be banked as early as age 10 and do not restrict an upper age limit. Acorn has clients who have banked their cells in their mid-80s.
Cryopreservation has been successfully preserving biological material for decades. Umbilical cord blood, sperm cells, and egg cells are a few examples of cryopreservation of genetic material. Acorn uses the same freezing process and adds extra steps, like our proprietary transport media and processes, to enable lifelong cell preservation and viability.
