(Newser) – An addled mom is boasting that she injects Botox into her 8-year-old daughter's face every three months so she can be a "star." She also arranges body waxes for her girl. "I wish that I'd had the same advantages when I was younger," mom Kerry Campbell tells the Sun. "I know one day she will be a model, actress, or singer, and having these treatments will ensure she stays looking baby-faced for longer," adds the British beautician who now lives in San Francisco. Campbell buys the Botox and Restalyne on the Internet and first tests them on herself.

Experts warn Botox is considered safe only for adults, yet there are no laws making it illegal to inject it into children, notes the Sun. Little Britney Campbell, a frequent beauty pageant contestant, says she no longer "cries that much" during the injections, and she's looking foward to a "boob and nose job soon, so that I can be a star."
