A teenage girl has become Britain's youngest Botox user at the age of just 15 - thanks to injections administered by her own mother.
Hannah Burge, now 16, first had Botox injections into her facial muscles at a clinic in Spain last year after her mother Sarah, 49, gave consent.
She has since had two more Botox injections administered at home by her mother, known as the Human Barbie, who is a trained aesthetic practitioner.

The single mother-of-three holds the world record for the most cosmetic procedures and has spent more than £500,000 to get the perfect face and body.
Her daughter is now injected with half the usual dosage given to adults which she believes will prevent her developing wrinkles in the future.
The schoolgirl looked at online teen websites and forums to research the treatment and found young girls saying they felt more confident after having Botox.
She has heard of girls having the treatment at 16 but believes she was the youngest UK teen to have the injections at just 15.
Ms Burge said: 'I wanted to have Botox for two reasons - it prevents wrinkles and everyone at my school was talking about having "B".
'I had a couple of lines on my forehead and around my mouth, which I was unhappy about.
'Appearance is important to me and I don't want to look haggard and ugly by the time I'm 25.
'Some of my friends told me that the earlier you start to have B, the fewer wrinkles you'll have as an adult.
Sarah Burge supports her daughter having Botox at such a young age and is happier administering the injections herself.
The trained aesthetic practitioner from St Neots, Cambridge, describes herself as an 'expert' in Botox and uses the same Botox on her daughter that she uses on herself.
She said: 'I was thrilled Hannah was open and honest with me about having Botox.
'I'd much rather know about it than have her do it behind my back.

'I talked her through the procedure and feel I did the responsible thing.
'I know some parents will be horrified but this is my way of protecting my daughter from back-street rip-off merchants.
'Also, considering I have had so much surgery, I'd be a hypocrite to tell my daughter she couldn't have Botox.

'My opinion is that parents should be much more involved in their children's lives from an early age and I know that Hannah doesn't mind me knowing about her love of B.'
Sarah has had over 100 procedures including implants in her cheeks and chin, a brow lift, an upper eye lift, liposuction to the jaw, chin and neck and three facelifts.
Botox is the trade name for botulinum toxin, a bacteria which causes muscle paralysis lasing for up to four months.
Fazel Fatah, President-Elect of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons said that Botox should only be administered by a professional in sterile conditions.
He said: 'It is shocking to me, as an experienced surgeon, that anyone would buy from the internet and administer Botox into the face of a 16-year-old.
'And buying Botox or fillers online is extremely dangerous because the buyer has no idea of the source.
'The product could be contaminated or not completely pure.
'Too frequent or excessive dosing of Botox can lead to the patient developing resistance to treatment or may exaggerate any facial asymmetry.
'Excessive Botox can also cause facial weakness or paralysis, and double vision, if injected incorrectly near the eye area.'
But the teenager is happy to have had the injections and now plans to have lip fillers administered by her mother to give her a fuller pout.
She said: 'I've met plenty of girls my age who are having these procedures behind their parents' backs, which I think is pretty dangerous.
'Teen Toxing is just part of life these days, which is why I share it with my mum.
'With her help, I won't get that frozen-face look when I'm older and will never have a line or wrinkle on my face.'
