It's not a common procedure, but now pedicures using fish are now illiegal in Texas.
During the pedicure, a customer places his or her feet in a footbath allowing fish to eat dead skin cells their feet.
The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation lists this as a health risk because the same fish are being used on multiple customers and can transmit infectious diseases.
