It sounds too unreal to be true, like a storyline straight out of "When Stage Moms Go Bad."
It's real life for an 8-year-old California girl.
We spoke with the girl, Britney, and her mom, Kerry, to learn exactly why they turned to Botox, and exactly how young is too young when it comes to using medical treatments for the sake of beauty.
Kerry, who asked that her family's last name not be used, told "Good Morning America's" Lara Spencer that it was actually her daughter, Britney, who wanted to try Botox, a beauty treatment more normally requested by aging women than growing girls.
"We were getting into the pageants," Kerry recalled. "I knew she was complaining about her face, having wrinkles, and things like that. When I brought it up to Britney she was all for it."
How many 'wrinkles' can any child have at 8!!
And yes, now she is being investigated by Child Protective Services
And the general public called the agency after the story aired on Good Morning America
