All About Skin Microcirculation

The blood circulation ensures that oxygen and nutrients are transported to the organs and cells. Microcirculation refers to the link between blood and cells.

What Is Skin Microcirculation?

The skin consists of three layers: the epidermis (the top layer), the dermis and the hypodermis. Only the epidermis is not supplied with blood: it is "supplied" by imbibition from the capillary networks of the dermal papillae.

Thus, when one speaks of skin microcirculation, one is referring to the structured blood and lymphatic vascular network of capillaries, arterioles, and veins localized in the dermis and hypodermis.

Four main functions are associated with skin microcirculation:

  1. The nourishment of the cells of the dermis, hypodermis and epidermis, as well as the skin appendages such as the nails;

  2. The maintenance of blood pressure through vasoconstrictor tone;

  3. The tolerance of the skin to long periods of ischemia due to body weight. As a reminder, ischemia is the inadequate supply of blood to an organ due to obstruction of blood flow in an artery.

  4. The thermoregulation of the body at about 38 °C.

However, skin microcirculation changes in the course of skin aging, where a gradual decrease in the formation of new vessels can be observed, resulting in pale skin, hair loss, skin ischemia, etc.

How To Stimulate Microcirculation of the Blood?

  • Carboxytherapy

Carboxytherapy involves injecting small amounts of CO2 gas into the dermis. The aim is to improve the appearance of the skin. The procedure improves blood circulation so that various skin imperfections such as cellulite, stretch marks, dark circles and wrinkles can be eliminated.

CO2 injection has a positive effect on vascular activity. It affects vascularization, increases the density of blood vessels and promotes their regeneration. It also affects microcirculation, improving blood flow, the passage of red blood cells and the release of oxygen into the skin tissue.

  • Perform facial massages

These not only boost microcirculation, but also provide more firmness and elasticity.

  • The mechanical peeling

Exfoliation is a technique used to remove dead skin cells that have accumulated on the surface of the skin and can be responsible for the appearance of blemishes. This way, it helps the skin to become soft and supple again, stimulates microcirculation of the body and face, and stimulates cell regeneration. This is usually done weekly, depending on the skin type. We have developed four peelings with exfoliating micrograins obtained from crushing apricot kernels. The facial scrubs contain less concentrated abrasive particles than the body scrubs to be gentle on your skin.

  • The facial scrub with wild rose oil and organic carrot macerate evens the complexion and gives it luminosity. It is especially suitable for sallow, dull skin as well as for dry and uncomfortable skin.

  • The nourishing body scrub softens and smoothes the skin. It is especially suitable for dry and uncomfortable skin.

The invigorating body scrub contains organic green coffee macerate (draining) and essential oils of organic lemongrass and cedarwood (against cellulite). It is recommended to smooth, tone and revitalize the skin while reducing the appearance of so-called "orange peel".
