Fish Spa Pedicure - Any good?

Mum2ConnornCerysMum2ConnornCerys

I'm interested in going but would like to know what other people who have been thought of it. Does it really shift a lot of hard skin or is it just more of a relaxing and pampering session ?

    Depends how hungry the fish are.

    Sounds a bit gross to me and a heaven for nasties - the fish could so easily pass stuff between the people before you's manky feet to your feet. No thanks. Bleugh.
    Go for a lovely pedicure and get your feet properly pampered.

    Girlfriend has had it done. It was enjoyable and seemed to make the underside of her feet smoother in places. Obviously, they aren't going to chomp away at larger dry areas - but she said she noticed a difference.

    I've got some good cream but I'm lazy at applying it each evening, so was wondering if it's a quick fix.

    If you do want to do it then look at Groupon, there are nearly always deals on there for the fish pedicures.

    It's not a 'major' quick-fix - I think you'd really start to notice after a few times, but at about £15 a session it's not cheap.
    She used the appyfeet place in Cardiff - the water looked very clean and was being pumped/filtered all the time. You just have to get used to the shoppers walking past and having a stare every now and again though.

    have heard mixed reviews, some medical experts are thinking of reviewing this procedure as they believe it can spread cross infection like athletes foot, etc.

    I've seen the ads and Groupon Deals posted on here, will have a look,but I expect they won't do the ones around here, tends to be the larger cities.

    It's £10 here but it won't be very often,I only know 1 person who had it done and she's 13 and not likely to have feet in need of it !

    Ive no idea, too freaky for me Im afraid.

    I do remember seeing Pedikur on qvc a good few years back.. Slapping some cream on your feet and then scraping all the dead skin off 20mins later was the gist of it! It looked disgusting tbh, but the after (the live after, ie the woman sat there.. not the exaggerated photos) was pretty impressive. Ive been meaning to try it but never got round to it, plus Im not sure if you need really bad trotter-like feet for it to work!?

    If it's really good then it's worth paying almost £30 for. I'm using some Scholl cream at moment, it works but like I say I'm lazy at applying it before bed every night.

    There are places popping up all over, one up here is called Xfeet it does it for £1 a minute, I gave it a go, it was the weirdest feeling ever, didn't really notice much difference but that was only 5 minutes and my feet are ok anyway so I didn't "really" need it.
    The water in all these places is filtered all the time and some have a light they reckon kills bacteria, dunno about that, but I wasn't worried, the scabby rubbish is in the fishes gut not its mouth, its not like they are licking nasties on to your feet. If you fancy it give it a go. There are salons where they take this really seriously, even giving fish breaktimes so they don't get tired out.

    My mate brings babyfeet back from Hong Kong, thats the skankiest thing I have seen, she slaps it on, leaves it overnight then all the skin on her foot come off, like a sock..........but her feet look great. You can get it online, its expensive but I have seen what it does, it looks well worth the cash if you can deal with the grottiness of it.

    what you need is a 1200 grit sanding wheel and a angle grinder

    as above but not on the flange area!
