Summer is rapidly on its way, and that means wearing less on our feet. When it comes time to break out the sandals you will definitely want to make sure that your feet are as presentable as they can be. Fish pedicures are a different way to get the skin on your feet looking fresh and clean, but there are some conflicting opinions on this technique.

Fish Pedicure

Garra ruffa is the name of the tiny toothless fish that nibble on the dead skin we have on our feet. They leave the skin underneath alone and you come away with rejuvenated feet. In certain controlled circumstances, they have been found to be effective on people with psoriasis.

As with anything there is an opposing side that says a fish pedicure isn’t the way to go. For one thing it’s nearly impossible to sanitize the bowl the fish are in after every customer. Furthermore, the fish can’t be disinfected. This means that the same fish are used on multiple clients, which elevates the spread of infection. Animal right’s activists also believe that the fish must be starved in order for them to want to eat our dead skin. Some people are concerned with the risk of exposing themselves to infection, however there have been no reported cases of any infections contracted through the use of fish.

It’s important for you to have all of the information you can regarding this type of procedure. You can call Dr. Marco Vargas and Dr. Joyce Lee at 888-784-5335 or schedule an appointment online to visit Foot and Ankle Associates in Houston, TX. We can give you the knowledge you need to make informed choices about how you take care of your feet.
