MIAMI (CBS4) – A San Francisco woman is under investigation after saying on national TV that she gives her 8-year-old daughter anti-wrinkle Botox injections whenever her daughter appears in beauty pageants.

“It’s child abuse,” said Dr. Carlos Wolf, who is a plastic surgeon at Miami Plastic Surgery.

Wolf is concerned of the psychological effects Botox could have on a young child.

Trent Rhorer with the city of San Francisco Human Services Agency said officials want to sit down and talk with Kerry Campbell and her daughter, Britney.

Campbell appeared with her daughter Thursday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” She enrolls Britney in beauty pageants and says she got the idea to give her daughter Botox from other pageant mothers.

Hollywood-based Michael Galanes is the National Director for the Little Miss Perfect Pageant. He also stars in the WE TV reality show “Little Miss Perfect.” He’s been working in the pageant industry for almost 20 years. He says he’s never seen parents use Botox on their kids.

“This is way beyond an over zealous stage mom,” said Galanes. “But a mom that clearly needs help.”

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.

    The editor of this article should really be fired. The article sucks just as badly as the crazy pageant mom.

  3. A Father says:

    TV should not even allow to have any kind of show that promote little children pageant. Children are Children. Dont take away thier inocent. Mom and the children pageant promoters should go to jail.

  4. sellous says:

    Such madness and she is been investigated, that brute should be in jail on no bond,

    Why do we treat women with gloves and men with iron fist? if a man had done such thing all these feminist groups would flood the media.

    I wonder wher is Rush Limbaugh and his crews?
