The year before there was a 48% increase in the use of Botox use by those wrinkly young women.
Put aside the morality of this move, first consider, will there be any Botox left for those of us who really need it, those who have real wrinkles not pimples?
Back to the morality, for any teenager looking in the mirror there must be a great pressure today to try and be just a little better, and it seems that pressure is also coming from parents, who send off their child with permission to receive the procedure.
But today it’s been revealed that one mother is injecting her 8 year old, not even a teenager, with Botox, and on a regular basis.
At just 8 years old Britney Campbell’s mother has a wonderful dream for her. According to her Beautician mother Kerry, Britney will be a model, a star, by the time she reaches puberty, reported the British Sun Newspaper.
To help the child on her way 4 times a year Britney watches as her mother injects into her lips, around her eyes and forehead a syringe full of Botox. Being clear here, this is not about health, this is not about anything but wanting a child to look her best.
Her mother believes that with the treatment Britney’s youthful look will be extended.
It would be easier to overlook this case, yet it seems that Britney is not alone. In their travels among the British Beauty-Pageants it seems from Kerry that many of the young girls are also being given injections.
