Dr. Guljeet Sohal’s patients know why her award-winning practice, Balle Bliss Luxury Medical Spa, is in a class of its own. Dr. Sohal’s warm, compassionate approach is evident when you meet her. The joy she and her staff feel when helping women look and feel their best shines through as she leads her team by example. When you leave your appointment, you can’t help but feel uplifted, empowered, and inspired to love yourself and embrace self-care with renewed confidence.
Every Journey Begins with a Single Step
Dr. Sohal’s passion is helping transform her patients’ lives through medical aesthetic services, but she didn’t discover it until family circumstances served as a catalyst. Ultimately, it led her to found Balle Bliss a decade ago, a bold step for an experienced, successful family physician.
“Aesthetics was a new frontier for me. I continued to work in family medicine and devoted part of my attention to my fledgling medical spa. As I did, it became a personal, life-changing, transformative experience,” says Dr. Sohal, who has found greater inner peace and happiness since creating Balle Bliss.
As Balle Bliss Luxury Medical Spa steadily grew, Dr. Sohal decided to commit 100 percent of her time to her new practice. While learning something new and starting a family, life changed quickly for Dr. Sohal. Today, Balle Bliss is one of Greater Houston’s most sought-after and respected medical spas, garnering Living Magazine Readers’ Choice Best Of Cyfair awards for seven consecutive years from 2013 through 2019.
“I became a physician to help people feel better. Aesthetic services gives me the tools and time to do this, as well as help my patients feel happier and more self-confident,” Dr. Sohal explains.
“My prescription pad used to be filled with pharmaceutical medications, now it’s actual treatments. Results are often immediate, and patients leave with more pep in their step and their head held higher. It makes my heart soar. I have learned to help people heal through action and not pills,” says Dr. Sohal, who has been selected as a highly esteemed Master Injector because of her unique skill and technique.
“We cater to real women at Balle Bliss, women like us with dreams, hopes, flaws, joys, and sorrows,” says Dr. Sohal. “It’s not about vanity, it’s about helping you look and feel your personal best with services that deliver noticeable, natural-looking results.”
A Patient Shares her Perspective
“I call her ‘Dr. Lovely,’” says Andrea. “Dr. Sohal is a beautiful soul who cares deeply about her patients and about helping you feel good about yourself. She’s so genuine and relatable, unlike any Dr. I’ve known before. When you meet her it’s like connecting with a best friend. Her ‘medicine’ is good for your spirit and self-esteem.”
Andrea was initially treated for hormonal imbalance with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. “The results were better than I could have hoped for—much more energy, fewer hot flashes, and my chronic headaches disappeared,” she says. Since then, Andrea has enjoyed noninvasive body contouring and facial rejuvenation treatments to address lines and wrinkles, improve clarity and firmness, and resolve hyper-pigmentation.
“Dr. Sohal and her team deliver fantastic results while treating you with trust and respect, and the feeling is mutual,” Andrea says. “I recommend them to everyone.”
Ashley, Dr. Sohal’s office manager, comments, “Dr. Sohal’s transformation has been beautiful, like a butterfly. Her work is like art, her smile is contagious, and her love for her patients is so genuine and true. She forms a special bond with each of them.”
She adds, “Working for Dr. Sohal has been life-changing for me. She’s truly the best at what she does, and I feel honored to be part of it. All of us at Balle Bliss are so proud to have her as a leader, friend, and mentor. We love her.”
