Starting out with the hope to educate people about blackheads, cysts, acne and cosmetic surgery, Dr. Sandra Lee’s pimple-popping videos have since gone viral, showcasing a front-seat view of hair-raising acne extractions that are both hair-raising and oddly relaxing to watch.
“I hear people watch my videos before they go to sleep at night. People say during finals week they watch them before their test because it helps them relax and calm down. I think in the past there are people who have been watching this stuff privately, kind of like pornography.”
Known as Doctor Pimple Popper on social media, Lee is a board-certified dermatologist, as well as a skin cancer and cosmetic surgeon based in Southern California. Garnering nearly a million followers on Instagram, Lee’s videos are said to have a soothing effect on its audience, despite its discomforting premise.
“Two cases recently which were on the same day, actually, I had to come home at lunch and take a nap because it was too much for me. One of them was an abscess, which I don’t like, and the other one was a big cyst that was black — it was black on the inside. It was big. It was maybe the size of a kid’s fist.”
