Fish pedicure
The Fish pedicure is a new trend in beauty salon and we will explain what it is.
The Fish pedicure designates the immersion of the feet in a basin filled with fish which will operate smoothly to get rid of dead skins. The temperature of the water is 25°C.
The session is 15 to 30 minutes long to be performed about once a month.
This service costs on average about ten euros. This technique is offered in beauty salon, Spas and thalassotherapy.
Gara Rufaa is the only fish authorized for fish pedicure because it has no teeth.
Its sucking mouth allows exfoliation natural feet without pain. These fish originate from the Middle-East.
The fish must be kept in groups so they are more effective.
The fish doctor or fish freshwater surgeon is a species of the family Cyprinidae.
They can reach fourteen centimeter.
These fish live on average of fifteen years when they are in their natural environment but they live only between 6 and 8 years in a aquarium.
In the United States, more than a dozen states have banned this treatment because this technique could transmit diseases or infections
A spokesman of the British agency declared that the British Health Watch Agency did not prohibit this practice.
We are, as a whole, interested in this technique. We would like to try it to see what it feels like. But also see the result of a natural technique.
Some of us knew this technique but had never tried and others did not know this about it.
