If you’re the kind of person who actually gets excited when you spot a pimple on yourself or a friend because it means you get to squeeze it, you’re probably already well acquainted with Dr Sandra Lee.
A dermatologist and skin cancer surgeon based in the US, Dr Lee has earned herself the nickname Dr Pimple Popper – along with almost 400,000 Youtube subscribers – for her (disgustingly) addictive pimple popping videos.
And her recently uploaded blackhead extraction video could just be the worst (read: best) one yet. (Post continues after video. Video contains graphic material.)
WE CAN’T LOOK AWAY.
The latest video features an older “vibrant and sassy” patient who Dr Lee had recently been treating for skin cancer around her ear, when she spotted a hard blackhead next to the eye. The resulting video is like Christmas come early for pimple popping lovers – but definitely not for the fainthearted.
After quickly numbing the area, Dr Lee makes a small incision into the blackhead and gently extracts the hard disk that has been under the woman’s skin for years.
