OC Medical just got the NuEra for fat burning and it is no joke. I had some loose skin after a surgery and Rachel knew exactly what I needed. I did the Accufit with the NuEra and the results are night and day after one session. The NuEra was so comfortable and tightened the skin and got rid of fat while the Accufit toned. I’m so happy with service here and the staff is really incredible. They have all your beauty and esthetic needs!
