Abstract: In the present study, an aesthetic treatment was implemented to reduce Edematous Fibro sclerotic Panniculopaty (EFSP) with Ayurvedic techniques according to each of the three Doshas: Pitta, Kapha and Vata. EFSP is an aesthetic alteration that has been increasing due to bad nutritional habits and sedentary lifestyle, being one of the main reasons for the consultation of women who feel dissatisfied with their body's physical appearance. The present study was conducted to identify the effectiveness of Ayurvedic techniques for reducing Edematous Fibro sclerotic Panniculopaty in women between 30 and 45 years of age. A clinical research was carried out, applying the integral Ayurveda protocol to three patients for one month, taking into account the follow-up of anthropometric measurements and morphological profile within each patient. We used oils made from plants and poultices, marma points with a mixture of artichoke, eggplant, pineapple, rue, seaweed, Lippia alba, cardamom oil, turmeric essential oil, detox cinnamon essential oil, clove essential oil, coconut and olive and sesame oil. The results obtained were successful, achieving an improvement in the texture and tone of the skin, and in addition to the above, as an unexpected result, there was also an improvement in blood circulation and an improvement in the skin's pigmentation of the patients. Alternative aesthetic treatments with Ayurvedic techniques are useful and effective for treating Edematous Fibro sclerotic Panniculopaty (EFSP). These treatments are lower cost, non-invasive and without adverse effects.
