Hair Loss

Conveniently Located to serve Rutherford, Verona, Bergen and Essex Counties

Figuring out how to treat your hair loss can feel like an uphill battle full of shame, embarrassment, and frustration. You deserve treatments that deliver real results and won’t be a waste of time. At Geria Dermatology, we offer a wide variety of treatments for hair loss in New Jersey. We have the experience needed to find the right treatment for you.


Hair loss can be caused by health problems, genetics, stress, certain hair products, prescription side effects, and medical complications. Both men and women are affected by hair loss worldwide.

Androgenic alopecia can occur in your late teenage years or twenties. In women, this condition leads to an overall thinning of hair or a widening of the middle part. Men will experience a receding hairline or a bald spot at the top of the head. These symptoms occur due to the inherited genes that cause hair follicles to shrink and eventually stop growing hair.

A number of medications and treatments can cause hair loss. Beta-blockers, blood thinners, antidepressants, anti-inflammatory drugs, and cholesterol-lowering medication can all cause hair loss as a side effect. Thyroid medication and hormone replacement therapy have the same effect.

Treatments like chemotherapy or radiation can also cause hair loss. Chemo and radiation therapy target rapidly growing cells. This process damages hair follicles and makes hair fall out.


During the consultation, your current hair health will be assessed. There are different degrees of hair loss, and the degree you are experiencing can help to determine your ideal treatment. Be ready to discuss your complete medical history, as some treatments may not be compatible with certain medical conditions or prescriptions.

Once your medical evaluation is complete, a hair-restoration treatment program will be created for you. Your preferences and appearance goals will be prioritized.

Your treatment plan will be discussed with you in great detail. Please ask any questions you may have. Special instructions will be provided to help you prepare before the treatment.

“Dermatologist for hair loss in New Jersey


Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) hair restoration is the preferred treatment for hair loss at Geria Dermatology. This cutting-edge minimally invasive method of hair restoration involves use of the patient’s own blood to encourage hair growth. The growth factors contained in the blood’s platelets and plasma nourish the follicles.


Revian Red is an FDA-approved LED treatment for androgenetic alopecia (also known as androgenic alopecia). This portable wireless cap is paired with an app for mobile devices. It offers comprehensive scalp coverage, unlike LLLT treatments. . It is safe for Fitzpatrick Skin Types I to IV.

Revian uses 620 and 660 nm wavelengths of LED energy to restore cells and enhance nitric oxide. This enhances blood flow to supply more nutrients to follicles and extend the anagen growth phase. The treatment also addresses inflammation and blocks dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Initial results may be evident in 8 to 16 weeks.


Spironolactone (for women): This medication decreases the rate of male sex hormone (androgen) production. For female patients whose hair loss is caused by androgenic alopecia (female-pattern baldness), this androgen decrease improves hair growth and lowers the rate of hair loss. The medication is classified as an aldosterone receptor antagonist, and it takes around six months to a year to create visible results. Patients with medical conditions like hyperkalemia or Addison’s disease may not be suitable for spironolactone.

Finasteride (for men): This medication decreases the patient’s level of DHT to slow hair loss and increase hair growth. It should only be used by male patients who are experiencing androgenetic alopecia (male-pattern baldness) in the center of the scalp and at the crown. It must be used at the same time every day, and results may appear in up to three months.

✨ @drgeria was recently featured in the article by @livestrong_com where he shared his opinion on the use of dry shampoo.

👎Dry shampoo can be a convenient hair care product, its frequent and improper use may have some potential drawbacks.

🫧It should not replace regular hair washing entirely, as it doesn`t cleanse the scalp as effectively as traditional shampoo and water.

👉Overuse of dry shampoo can lead to product buildup, clogged hair follicles, and a dry scalp.

❗️Dr. Geria recommends using dry shampoo sparingly and recommends washing your hair regularly to maintain scalp health and prevent potential issues.

❓Did you know?

👉Consuming a diet that is rich in sugar and heavily processed foods can potentially have a significant impact on skin health and lead to the development of skin inflammation.

👎Processed foods often contain high levels of refined sugars, which can cause rapid spikes in blood sugar levels. This triggers the release of insulin, a hormone that regulates blood sugar, but can also have pro-inflammatory effects.

🙅‍♀️Chronic consumption of excessive sugars and processed carbohydrates may contribute to a state of chronic inflammation, which is believed to be a contributing factor to the exacerbation of skin conditions like acne, eczema, and psoriasis.

🥦In contrast, opting for a diet rich in whole, nutrient-dense foods, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats, provides the body with the necessary building blocks for healthy skin.

👍These foods supply essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can support the skin`s natural defense mechanisms and minimize the risk of inflammation-related skin issues.

✨Therefore, making mindful dietary choices can contribute to maintaining clear, vibrant, and healthy skin.
