In the beginning it is the skin (contains sebaceous and sweat glands) and subcutaneous fatty tissue. Then comes a layer of muscle tissue. There also passes a large number of blood vessels (arteries and veins) and nerve endings. Thanks to them, nutrition and innervation (delivery of nerve impulses) of the muscles takes place. The finest branches of blood vessels and nerves reach the skin, delivering the necessary substances and providing sensitivity.
