Should Kids Be Given Botox for Beauty
Here's What I Think About Botox for Beauty for Children
Should Kids Be Given Botox for Beauty?
I recently came across a story about a mother who gives her daughter Botox injections to remove wrinkles in her face. The child is 8 years old and participates in beauty pageants.
I have personally never liked to see children dressed up like models with make-up and adult hair styles, but I am disgusted by the idea of a parent injecting a child with Botox to remove wrinkles. Seriously, what wrinkles could an 8 year old have on her face that justifies such treatment?
I am also deeply concerned about the psychological effects for this child, or any child who is subjected to extreme beauty treatments of any kind.
I do wish to make it clear that this is not a debate about botox being used for Cerebral Palsy patients or other medical treatment. This is just about Botox for Beauty.
