What is ACORN?
ACORN is non-invasive stem cell banking for use in personalized regenerative medicine.
With ACORN, your cells are collected via plucked hair follicles and are safely cryogenically frozen. This stops the cells from aging, giving you a collection of your own younger cells to use in upcoming treatments.
What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine focuses on harnessing the power of our own cells to heal our bodies. Imagine using your own stem cells as the key ingredient to help Regenerate, Rejuvenate and Repair your skin, hair and more. This is the power of regenerative medicine.
Who is ACORN for?
If you've considered any of these treatments, ACORN is for you.
- Dermal Fillers
- RF Microneedling
- Hair Restoration
- Other aesthetic procedures
By collecting and freezing your own cells, you can preserve a powerful, younger you to leverage in future regenerative treatment that aim to help:
- Rejuvenate skin
- Repair damage
- Replenish tissues
- Heal wounds
- Treat conditions
- Regrow hair and more
The effects of aging accumulate over time and can have an impact on how much benefit our cells provide in regenerative medicine.
There is no specific cut-off date for when you can bank your cells. 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 sometime in the mid 60s, at which point the pace of aging begins to accelerate considerably, and you start to see an increase in age related conditions.
Because everyone ages differently, and the breadth of regenerative medicine applications will have different needs from the patient's cells, we wouldn't be able to guarantee exactly how beneficial any individuals cells would be, but if the cells are cryopreserved they would avoid accumulation of additional damage and age that will come later in life.
You’re never as young as you will be today, so for most people, we recommend to bank as early as possible so that you can leverage younger cells for regenerative treatments as they become available in the future.
Cell banking is the process of collecting, freezing and storing cells for future use. At Acorn, we bank your own cells, collected non-invasively via hair follicles.
More specifically, cryopreservation is the method of preserving biological material like cells, tissues, or organs for future use by freezing it at very low temperatures (-190° C). The process involves a controlled-rate freezer to protect the cells from damage and crystallization. Freezing cells at these low temperatures stops the aging process, preserves the integrity of cells, and protects them from external environmental factors.
Cryopreservation can safely and reliably preserve cells indefinitely, which means you’ll be able to benefit from future medical innovation for years to come.
The average person has roughly 100,000 hair follicles on their head, and Acorn only requires 50 for a successful collection. This abundant cell source is also harvested non-invasively and contains cells, like keratinocytes, fibroblasts and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) that have the potential to help rejuvenate skin, regrow hair, repair tissues and even be leveraged in stem cell applications.
