- Dr. Pimple Popper shared a new Instagram video that shows her removing two large blackheads from a woman's neck.
- Dermatologist Sandra Lee, MD said the blackhead removal was "#sosatisfying."
- Blackheads are just pores that have become blocked by oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria.
If you're a true #popaholic, you tend to play favorites when it comes to Dr. Pimple Popper videos. Some people like those oozing cysts while others like hard-to-remove lipomas . Me? I'm more of a blackhead fan.
Luckily (for me...and lbh, tons of Dr. Pimple Popper fans out there), the doctor shared a video on her Instagram today that showed two super-satisfying blackhead removals (seriously-her hashtag attached to these is #sosatisfying).

In the video, dermatologist Sandra Lee, MD, goes to work on the back of a woman's neck, where two pretty large blackheads live. (FYI: A blackhead or a whitehead is a pore that has become blocked with oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria, per the American Academy of Dermatology. If a pore stays open, it looks black; if it closes up, it looks white.)
Dr. Pimple Popper captioned the video, "Say Hello to these #blackhead beauties! " and honestly, I agree. The doctor doesn't do much by way of explaining what she's doing during the video (she's really just having girl-talk with her patient), but in order to free the blackheads, she has to first make tiny slits in them.
Then, Dr. Pimple Popper squeezes the blackheads first with her fingers, then uses a comedone extractor (really, just a device to make it easier to pop blackheads and white heads) to pop out the remaining dark gunk. Dr. Pimple Popper is clearly a pro; after the gunk is out, you can hardly tell there was a bump there to begin with.
Honestly, if that doesn't leave you feeling satisfied, then we can't be friends.
