Girl Taken Away From Mother Who Injected Her With Botox, 'GMA' Reports

Filed under: In The News



After the airing of a recent "Good Morning America" story featuring a mother who admitted injecting her 8-year-old daughter with botox, the news show now reports the little girl has been removed from her mother's custody.

According to "GMA," the San Francisco Human Services Agency began investigating Kerry Campbell, a part-time aesthetician, after she described on camera how she injects her daughter, Britney, with the wrinkle-erasing drug to help prep her for beauty pageants.

Human Services officials weren't the only ones to take note of the report.

Dermatologist Dr. Doris Day tells "GMA" she would never inject a minor with botox.

"There's absolutely no reason to use it for cosmetic purposes in an 8-year-old child and so any risk is too much of a risk to take," Day tells the news show.

And thousands have posted comments online, outraged at Campbell's actions.

However, "GMA" reports, the investigation won't necessarily end in Campbell losing custody of Britney, adding that experts say she could be directed to take parenting classes, or, if the injections are deemed legal, she could face no punishment at all.
