Dr. Padrad's signature acupuncture and laser facial rejuvenation program


The aging process in an unavoidable aspect of life because it's a part of the process of nature, and we are a part the nature!

Face - Anti-Aging Skin Rejuvenation

The Skin Tightening / Anti-Aging package is for those of you who want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines but aren't necessarily interested in losing the gentle curves of your cheeks and jaw line. The treatment regimen consists of 2 Photo Rejuvenation treatments a week for 3 weeks and then 4 follow up treatments (1 per week for 4 weeks). The follow up treatments will insure that you maintain the results you wish for months to come. Each level of this package will come along with additional products to maximize your results.

Face/Neck - Fat Reduction

The skin tigthening and fat reduction package is for those of you who want to reduce the signs of aging while also slimming the contour of your face and reducing fat deposits around the jowls and neck line. The treatment regiment consists of 2 Photo Rejuvenation treatments a week for 3 weeks. Before and after pictures will be taken so that you may see the drastic changes that will occur in your profile. As with the tightening regiment, each level of this package will come along with additional products to maximize your results.

Breast Reduction

Utra-Fit Breast Reduction is a non-invasive procedure capable of reducing breast size. With the Ultra-Fit breast reduction you will see immediate results without the loss of contour/shape you may see with some other procedures. Ultra-Fit therapy also increases elastin and collagen production so you will see some tightening and lifting of the breast as well. A consultation will determine how many treatments will be needed to achieve your desired results.

Cellulite Treatment

Our Ultra-Fit red light therapy through high powered LED is effective on cellulite and loose, unresponsive adipose tissue. Following your consultation with our healthcare provider, we will be able to determine your course of treatment to eliminate unwanted cellulite.If liposuction has left you lumpy, we can help smooth those areas and tighten your skin. Each patient is different, but we can help you with those dysmorphic fat accumulations following liposuction or a tummytuck.

Internal Anti-Aging

  • Nutrition & Herbal Medicine & Botanical Pharmacy (Farmacy)
  • Plant Stem Cell Therapy/Stem Cell Nutrition & Gemmotherapy Phytochemicals are chemical compounds that occur naturally in plants (phyto means "plant" in Greek). Some are responsible for color and other organoleptic properties, such as the deep purple of blueberries or the smell of garlic. Scientists estimate that there may be as many as 10,000 different phytochemicals having the potential to affect diseases such as cancer, stroke or metabolic syndrome.
  • Bach Flower Remedies are dilutions of flower material developed by Edward Bach, an English bacteriologist, pathologist and homeopath, in the 1930s. Bach believed that dew found on flower petals retains healing properties of that plant. The remedies are intended primarily for emotional and spiritual conditions, including but not limited to depression, anxiety, insomnia and stress.
  • Homeopathic Remedies are derived from substances that come from plants, minerals, or animals, such as red onion or arnica (mountain herb). Homeopathic remedies are often formulated as sugar pellets to be placed under the tongue, but they may also come in other forms, such as ointments, gels, drops, creams, and tablets. Treatments are "individualized" or tailored to each person. It is not uncommon for different people with thesame condition to receive different treatments.

External Ant-Aging Non-Invasive Face Lifts

Facial sculpturing massages with 100% natural and organic signature products

No-needle Meso-Therapy is a revolutionary, non-invasive anti-cellulite and anti-wrinkle treatment technique that uses ultra sound as a delivery mechanism for the active ingredients, pushing the product through the dermal layers of the skin without the use of a needle. The ingredients of Meso-Therapy repair and restore the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, enhancing the skin's ability to retain and hold moisture and become more vibrant and healthier. Each treatment takes about one hour, non-invasively, without pain, and no down time. Patients may return to their normal activities immediately.

Radio Frequency Wrinkle Removers are considered among the most effective non-surgical procedures available today. Via this treatment, radio waves penetrate the outer skin layers and deliver heat energy to the muscles and tissues beneath. This heat stimulates collagen production, and that, insturn, triggers tissue tightening. The overall result is tighter, brighter skin and a significant reduction in sags and wrinkles. The radio frequency technique has been approved by the FDA as a non-surgical treatment for wrinkles and other skin imperfections. This treatment requires no downtime and its results are immediate. Results continue to improve as weeks go by following the treatment as the skin builds up collagen.

Acu-Laser Therapy treatment uses a therapeutic system combining the ancient medicine of acupuncture with the new technology of low-level laser therapy.

Unique Ant-Aging Program

BLI offers lifestyle coaching, including nutritional/hormonal monitoring and will recommend fitness programs according to your body type to prevent and restore the aging progress from the cellular level micro-system to whole-body macro-system level.

Eastern-Western Integrative Medicine in Santa Monica

Facelift procedures can be scary, and the idea of going under the knife for a very invasive procedure may be enough to frighten people away. For those who are still looking to receive the benefits of a facelift without being put under for surgery, we provide an alternative method to achieve similar results. At Balanced Life Institute, we offer a face lifting through acupuncture and acu-laser therapy. These non-invasive procedures can help stimulate the body's natural production of collagen and help restore a youthful appearance. Working with a Santa Monica integrative medical practitioner from Balanced Life Institute can help ensure that you look and feel your best.

We use very fine acupuncture needles or needless acu-lasers on your face meridians, fine lines, sagging skin or laugh lines to stimulate your body's natural collagen production. These therapies can also sculpt your cheek bones and facial frame by working against gravity to lift your skin upward, revealing a youthful appearance naturally and without surgery. During these procedures, we will also work on your body's acupuncture points to address underlying causes of premature aging and internal issues. This program is often combined with other body-mind focused services to help stimulate your body's overall health and wellness. Acu-laser and facial acupuncture can be combined with cellular facial rejuvenation to reach optimal results.

Laser Therapy in Santa Monica

Eastern-Western Integrative Medicine

Many people find the idea of a face lift or cosmetic surgery appealing, but when they realize how invasive the process is, they shy away from it. At Balanced Life Institute, we want to ensure that every individual is comfortable in their skin and that they feel and look their best. We offer non-invasive ways for individuals to achieve their health and wellness goals. By using Eastern-Western integrative medicine, Oriental practices, and preventive care, we have assisted numerous patients in the Santa Monica and greater Los Angeles area — and we may be able to help you as well!

Acu-Laser Therapy

At Balanced Life Institute, we use a pain-free, non-invasive method to shape your face and your body. There are no needles, no surgery, and no anesthesia — just acu-laser treatments. These lasers are used in a similar manner as acupuncture in that they balance the body based on points and meridians. By stimulating the body externally, change can occur internally. Acu-lasers promote the body's own collagen production, help smooth wrinkles, and tighten sagging skin. Lasers can even brighten dulled facial skin and balance the body's whole system while rejuvenating skin cells.

SmartLipo Procedures

Our center also offers SmartLipo procedures that help reshape your body. This FDA-approved laser works to remove dimples, sagging, and excess skin by tightening through coagulation. This process is trusted and effective and can be used to target specific problem areas of the body. SmartLipo has produced proven results in eliminating unsightly bulges and dimpled skin. The entire procedure can be completed in one day with noticeable results immediately following the procedure. Unlike traditional liposuction, SmartLipo eliminates fat by rupturing fat cells with a laser and promoting collagen production within your body.

Fine-Light (Skin Rejuvenating System)

Fine-Light is a safe and revolutionary skin rejuvenation system using the latest Red LED Light Therapy technology. In just 30 minutes per session, the mask can assist your skin to display a more youthful look.

Red LED light is a powerful stimulant to the skin and is an effective way to energize the cells of the skin, promoting the production of collagen and elastin. Lack of collagen and elastin in the skin's cells can result in the fine lines and wrinkles. LED Light Therapy has a direct effect on the regeneration of the skin, penetrating the top layers of the skin, energizing the skin, producing collagen and elastin, which helps to plump the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Light therapy has the desired effect of rejuvenating the skin without the need for surgery, chemicals, injections or painful procedures. Referred to as the 'No Knife Face Lift' this technology is becoming the preferred solution for those seeking to strip away the years. It is the safest, most affordable way to achieve radiant, younger-looking skin.

Tested and evaluated by many medical professionals, the LED Light Therapy technology was developed by NASA in the United States and continues to be the focus of reports on skin rejuvenation. It has been used for years in numerous medical procedures, spas, the offices of aestheticians and dermatologists and consumers around the world.
