Trichotillomania – Hair Pulling

I want these young people to know they will be ok, and that when they enter our facility the only thing they have to worry about is how beautiful they will look and feel when they leave.

Trichotillomania (trik-o-til-o-MAY-nee-uh) is a disorder that involves recurrent, irresistible urges to pull out hair from your scalp, eyebrows or other areas of your body, despite trying to stop.

Hair pulling is often caused by an undue amount of anxiety, stress and depression. It most commonly occurs among young children, adolescents and women. It generally affects twice as many females as males. 

For some people, trichotillomania may be mild and generally manageable. For others, the compulsive urge to pull hair is overwhelming. Some treatment options have helped many people reduce their hair pulling or stop entirely.

If you think that you have this condition and you are interested in treatment, we are looking for someone to share their story as they go through the process.
You can remain anonymous – your name will be withheld and images will have your face blurred out if you wish.
You must be willing to capture the treatment in a form of media, whether it be through video or images, along with a written component.

Service will be provided by Truly You, who are not only experienced, knowledgeable and have the best solutions that the industry has to offer, but they are also extremely empathetic.
The Truly You clinic is set up so that every service and consultation is done in private.

Treatments can take place in Mississauga and you must arrange for your own transportation.

If you are a teenager who deals with hair pulling/trichotillomania and would like to be part of this project, please contact us.

Your information WILL NOT be published and will only be shared with the Capilia Truly You in order to determine if you are a candidate for the treatment.
Rest assured that your information will be kept confidential.

Please fill out the contact form below with the required information, as well as a little bit about yourself and the nature of your trichotillomania (eyebrows, scalp, etc.), and we will respond as quickly as possible:
