For Acorn's cell collection, we look to pluck 50 fully in-tact hair follicles. This method is non-invasive and has very few side effects.
During the plucking process, there's minimal discomfort on the scalp or even painless for some people. The hair will grow back after being plucked since pulling out the hair follicle doesn't stop hair growth. On average, most people have anywhere from 100,000 to 150,000 hairs on their heads and naturally lose around 100 to 200 hairs per day that naturally grow back.
After the collection, there might also be some tenderness around the area that was plucked.
Because these follicles are sourced from the client, when the time comes time for the client to use their cells for regenerative medicine, there won't be any risk of rejection or immune complications.
