MANILA, Philippines – Aiko Melendez was considered by many as one of the prettiest faces in the local showbiz industry back in the old days and just like most women, she also wanted to maintain her beauty. Because of this, she underwent a dermatological procedure in the past; not knowing that it would turn out to be one of her biggest nightmares.

On her Instagram account, the 40-year-old recalled what happened to her and how she survived it by sharing her old photo.

She wrote: “Was fixing my old photos and saw this…. I’m just feeling so grateful to dra claudia samonte on how she got my face back and for always being there for me not only as a patient but also like a family… How patiently she cured my face. She saved me from my nightmare… First pic was dermatological procedure of another doctor who i trusted that turned out bad.”

She said that she learned her lesson the hard way and advise others to choose their doctors carefully.

“Trust the doctor who knows what she is doing,” she emphasized.

She said that she’s sharing her photo as a warning to others to be careful with the procedure that they undergo.

“Sometimes we always go beyond what is needed, but because of our vanity what’s best can be your worst,” she added.

After what happened to her, she promised that she will never ever experiment with her face again and will only trust her current dermatologist when it comes to her aesthetic needs.
