The California mom who admitted to injecting her 8-year-old daughter with botox for a kiddie beauty pageant is now being investigated by the San Francisco Human Services Agency.
"It's pretty unusual for a mom to be injecting an 8-year-old with botox and certainly is grounds for an investigation," said Trent Rohrer of the San Francisco Human Services Agency.
Mom Kerry and daughter Britney, appeared on "Good Morning America" Thursday defending the 8-year-old pageant contestant's use of botox.
"I just, like, don't, like, think wrinkles are nice on little girls," Britney said.
Britney admitted it hurt to get the injections on her face, but said she was used to the pain.
Botulinum toxin,Popularly known by one of its trade names, Botox or Dysport, it is used for various cosmetic and medical procedures.
There are many suppliers out there that make the toxin illegally and in the wrong doses. If you receive an excessive dosage or if your provider carries the illegal toxin, it could be potentially life threatening and should be avoided at all costs. If it is injected in the wrong areas it could paralyze you, which is why it is very important to find licensed physicians or surgeons to walk you through the process.
