What’s more disturbing is what Britney Campbell says she sees when she looks in the mirror. Britney even asks for more Botox injections and she’s really convinced she needs them. “I check every night for wrinkles, and when I see some I want more injections”, says Brittney on GMA.
Fashionista, How young is too young for cosmetic surgeries, waxing, make-up or even Botox? Last week on Good Morning America, viewers were shocked to hear about Pageant Mom and Aesthetician Kerry Campbell giving botox injections to her 8-year-old daughter to get rid of her “wrinkles” as she prepared for pageants.
Kerry Campbell and her daughter, Britney Campbell, appeared on Good Morning America to defend the use of Botox Thursday, May 12, 2011. We learned, Kerry buys her Botox and Restylane online and gives Botox and lip injections to 8-year-old Britney about every three months.Kerry Campbell claims she’s not the only pageant mom who does it. “A lot of mothers of pageant girls do it”, says Kerry. She tells Good Morning America that “When Britney takes part in pageants, parents talk about how they have given their daughter an extra jab to plump her lips or lose a wrinkle. Everyone is doing it and talking about it.”
We dare to ask…Kerry, do 8-year olds even have wrinkles? Botox is used mainly for middle-aged adults and doctors recommend that young adults and children stay clear of it. And what is Botox? Botox is a toxin, a toxin that blocks nerve signals to the muscles and makes the muscle no longer contract, causing wrinkles to relax. How many 8-year-old kids have wrinkles? We were even shocked when 18-year-old Glee guest star Charice told her fans she got Botox. Also the FDA only approves the use of Botox in patients 18 and older.
If Kerry Campbell has been influenced, what’s more disturbing is what Britney Campbell says she sees when she looks in the mirror. Britney even asks for more Botox injections and she’s really convinced she needs them. “I check every night for wrinkles, and when I see some I want more injections”, says Britney Campbell on GMA. Yesterday morning, reporters confirmed Kerry Campbell lost custody of Britney Campbell to child protective services and Kerry is currently being investigated by CPS in San Francisco.
The real question is whatever happened to telling our children that they are beautiful regardless, instead of shoving society’s false standards of beauty down their throat at such a young age? Please share your thoughts with First Class Fashionista on Kiddie Botox.
