Hemangioma - A type of birthmark characterized by concentrations of small blood vessels. They commonly referred to as strawberry marks and often disappear after a few months or years.

Hypodermis - The fatty layer of skin, home of sweat glands and fat and collagen cells. The hypodermis conserves your body's heat and protects your vital inner organs.
