Many might sneer upon hearing Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s name–no thanks to his infamous reputation for breaking the #PinoyPride streak and Manny Pacquiao‘s record. But let’s forgive him for that because in reality, underneath that tough exterior, he’s really just a sweetheart, according to celebrity dermatologist Dr. Vicki Belo.
Belo Medical Group recently introduced the American boxing champ as their new endorser through a press conference in New World Hotel Manila. This is the boxer’s second time in Manila. Floyd shared that he had the time to hit the newly reinvigorated shores of Boracay before undergoing through the endorsement process and treatment. The boxer landed the endorsement when he wanted to get a facial in Dubai but his Filipina maid insisted that they should wait until they get to the Philippines. “[The maid said…] ‘We’re already going to Boracay and we have to go to Manila to see Victoria Belo’ so I said ‘Why?’ Then she said, ‘She’s the best,’” shared Mayweather in the press conference. Mayweather was also the first to receive the aesthetic company’s newest Thermage FLX, a skin-tightening laser treatment. “I got shocked a couple of times, but I’d do it again,” he shared about his experience.
Dr. Belo also stated that she saw instant results because Mayweather’s skin “…is really good, it’s strong and tight… and healthy to begin with.” Dr. Belo documents every meetings and sessions with the boxer-endorser to keep supporters posted on the results of the treatment. He may have retired from the ring but he’s on his way to beauty and a youthful-looking skin.
