Botox for an 8-year-old?

by Roxanne C.

Just last month, news circulated about a mother giving her 8-year-old daughter botox treatments because she wanted her to look her best for beauty pageants. Since then, the mother’s lost custody of her child. The question is, would you do it if it were your daughter?


Botox for you?


As quoted from Jezebel, the mother also said this:


“She also has her virgin wax monthly, which gets rid of her fluffy leg hair and makes sure she won’t develop pubic hair in the future. It will save her a fortune in waxing when she’s older.”


What?!? I do not think 8-year-olds have to worry about “fluffy leg hair” at all! And what’s with the prevention of pubic hair development? This girl has not even gone through puberty yet! You know, she might as well give her daughter laser hair removal treatments for her already bare armpits to prevent future underarm hair growth! Jesus!


Laced Ivory will be back with more normal news from now on.

Botulinum Toxin – Botoks (Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin®),

In our country there is an irreasonable fear from use of preparations on the base of botulinus toxin. Botulinus toxin in medicine was primarily used for treatment of muscle spasms (especially in children) or involuntary movements, and for these problems botulinus toxin is used in much larger doses than in aesthetic medicine. For instance, we use it for involuntary facial movements. Hundreds of thousands of women and men have succesfully undergone this treatment, not only artists, politicians, models, but also housewives, teachers and members of various other professions.
