I would say yes, if beauty salons follow all medical and hygienic norms.
For this procedure only perfectly clear water is used and filtered up to six times an hour.
Authority should control this activity and salon should have certificate.
Pool is properly cleaned and sanitized after each procedure, sometimes the fish are changed too.
