- Dr. Pimple Popper tackles a blackhead in her latest video.
- The blemish is small and in the corner of her patient's eye, which makes it a little difficult of a pop.
- Dr. P refers to the blackhead as "wily" as she tries to reach it.
When it's Dr. Pimple Popper (a.k.a. Sandra Lee, MD) versus a blemish, your money should be on Dr. P.
That doesn't mean, though, that some pimples don't try to put up a good fight. Which is exactly what viewers see in Dr. P's latest Instagram post that shows her popping a patient's blackhead .
The video starts by zooming in on the patient's eye, where a blackhead is seen lurking in the corner. "It's a tough area to squeeze here," Dr. P says to the patient. "I can see why you didn't get rid of this yourself."
But, as you know, nothing is too tough for Dr. P. Using a pair of tweezers, she gently tries to grab hold of the blemish, but it keeps just escaping out of her grasp. "Gosh, this thing is wily," Dr. P is heard saying after a couple more tries.
Trying a new approach, Dr. P slightly pokes the blackhead with a needle to break the surface, and then uses her fingers for the actual squeezing part of the procedure, which releases a small amount of black and white gunk from beneath the surface. With a final pass with the tweezers to get any remaining junk, it's another blackhead successfully popped by Dr. P.
"Are you seeing what Im seeing? Sorry its blurry still working on my 2020 vision! " she captioned the video.
The difficulty of working in such a vulnerable and tight place did not go unnoticed by viewers. For Popaholics, the tension levels were high.
"Who else was getting anxiety?! " wrote one commenter.
"My daughters laughing at me cause Im talking to my phone saying oooh come on, come on nearly got it, oh so near the eye arrrggghhhh SHE GOT IT!! I was with you all the way with this one! " wrote another, to which Dr. P replied, "I love this kind of support! "
You know your Popaholics are always here for you, Dr. P.
