Does Visual Workflow Affect API Usage

Do actions within visual workflow count towards your org API usage? 

We have a complex flow with numerous sub-flows. Rather than pass numerous variables between each and run the risk of omitting a variable by mistake, we just pass the Contact Id to sub-flow and do a fresh record look-up at the beginning of each sub flow to pick up variable values. However, do the record lookups, updates, inserts count towards API usage?

Thanks Pratik. I had already read this documentation. However, I was still left unclear of what, within using visual workflow will count as an API request, if anything.
