Please refer to the picture of the skin layers below – you can see the location of epidermis, dermis and hypodermis. Hypodermis is a “sponge”. According to Wikipedia “hypodermis is a layer of tissue which lies immediately below the dermis of the skin. It is often referred to as subcutaneous tissue. The hypodermis consists primarily of loose connective tissue . Hypodermis contains larger blood (and lymph) vessels and nerves than those found in the dermis”. Hypodermis is like a sponge, full of moisture when it is healthy. Look at the picture and see what is happening with the sponge when you press it with your fingers – you are squeezing its vital moisture, blocking blood and lymph vessels, preventing smooth flow of fluid inside of tissue.
