Trichotillomania Treatment

Trichotillomania also known as hair-pulling disorder involves pulling out the hair from one’s scalp, face or anywhere on the body. It can cause intense distress and shame as it can result in significant hair loss. Many people with Trichotillomania also pick their skin, bite their nails or chew their lips.

The goal of treatment for Trichotillomania is to reduce the hair pulling so as to no longer feel embarrassed about the hair loss. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy can help you identify and examine distorted beliefs you may have in relation to hair pulling. Acceptance and commitment therapy can help you learn to accept the hair-pulling urges without acting on them. Some medications may help control certain symptoms.
