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.

    my heart aches for the child whose parent is so shallow and self centered as to think of doing this.

    It's insane, I can't of anyone who wouldn't think it was except the idiot who injected her daughter in the first place.

    Who even thought this was acceptable.

    I think in this case the mother wanted to attract attention. She succeeded, but at what cost? Now we'll have new laws for people too stupid to use common sense.

  • Gift-Guide 5 years ago

    Never

    The very thought is revolting. And "beauty" in a child is very divorced from the sort of beauty that I suspect the injectors mean.

  • anonymous 5 years ago

    Now giving botox to children is stupid, plain and simple.

  • simplyoasis 5 years ago

    NO!

  • karitina 5 years ago

    NEVER should be penalize

Of course!

      I can't believe this is legal or available for people to use it at home. How very sad.

      Kids just need to be kids. They shouldn't be subjected to this.

      This is ridiculous! Botox is an invasive procedure and can harm kids. If you have time please feel free to watch this video about Botox in McAllen

      It's insane how much people spend on looking young and then go smoke, drink and bath in the sun. If good habits were thought to children, drink water get plenty of sleep, don't go in the sun without sunblock there would be no need for that bovine poison...I never sleep. :-(

      Botox is a surgery to make beauty for people. Botox treatments becomes a very general experience in our daily life.But Botox treatment seems worst for children. It may affect badly for them. SO it is advisable to keep children away from children. But it is stil best for elders. For more information here. Botox pasadena
