In todays Instagram video , Dr. Pimple Popper helped alleviate the most stereotypical acne patient: a teenager. Sure, we dont know the male patient is a teen, but judging by his facial peach fuzz, the Peter Brady crack in his voice, and his references to his mom giving him an assist with zit squeezing, were going to guess this lads somewhere around the age of 15. Hes got these little blackheads that are pinchy, says Dr. Pimple Popper aka, dermatologist and TLC host Dr. Sandra Lee MD, as she presses down on his nose with a comedone extractor, wrestling out little yellow bits of crud. She then asks the patient if he squeezes himself.
My mom has done it many times before, he says. She has little tools and whatnot. Admiring Dr. Lees skills, he exclaims, Its a lot less painful than my mom.
Getting a face full of craters is rite of passage for teens and a source of tropes for Disney Channel writers. What causes acne in teenagers? Androgens, the main hormone driving puberty, flood through the body during the middle and high school years.

On the way, they make the skins oil glands larger and secrete more fluid, causing a mess of clogged pores and dermatological debris. Some kids get it worse than others, of course. Dr. Pimple Poppers poor patient looks like hes been dealing with a landscape of red, puffy skin.
It wasnt enough for some subscribers, though, expecting gargantuan cysts and exploding sacks of pus . All that gold and you give us this garbage, complained one jaded commenter. Hes got some gems on him. Show us the good stuff.
Hopefully, the teens classmates consider his facial condition just as unmemorable.
