SAN FRANCISCO—San Francisco authorities are investigating a mother who said on a national television program that she gives her 8-year-old daughter Botox injections.
Trent Rhorer with the city’s Human Services Agency tells KGO-TV that officials need to sit down and talk with Kerry Campbell and her daughter, Britney.
Rhorer says it was unusual for a mother to inject a child with the anti-wrinkle shot.
Campbell appeared with her daughter Thursday on ABC television. She enrols Britney in beauty pageants and says she got the idea to give her daughter Botox from other pageant mothers.
Rhorer says his office received numerous calls from people concerned about Britney’s well-being after the TV appearance.
Botox injections can be painful and are not recommended for anyone under the age of 18.
