These Are The Most Disgusting But Also Therapeutic Dr. Pimple Popper Videos And You’re Welcome

Dr. Sandra Lee, more lovingly called Dr. Pimple Popper, has a disturbingly large following. The Southern California Dermatologist posts videos of procedures done to stubborn cysts and pimples. Some people find the videos comforting. Others find them horrifying. Either way, her videos have such extreme reactions, an entire hashtag has been born: #ExtractionReaction.

Dr. Pimple Popper has over 5.6 million YouTube subscribers, with a collective 202 million views in her top ten videos alone. Brace yourselves, y’all. These are pimples so large, the patients need to be locally anesthetized to have them removed.

Warning: This is not a lunch-break quick read. Schedule your Dr. Pimple Popper viewing around the next time you see your therapist, por favor.

10. Blackheads are by far the most popular content on Dr. Pimple Popper’s page, so enjoy this compilation.

With 18 million views, enjoy this compilation of various blackhead extractions. Dr. Lee describes blackheads as “a clogged pore in the skin that is open to the air.” She explains the blackness of blackheads as a result of “the exposure to air that causes oxidation turning the internal contents black.”

9. At first, you can’t even see the blackhead because it’s so deep in the tissue. Dr. Pimple Popper cuts it right open.

After injecting local anesthesia around the “disc”-like blackhead, Dr. Pimple Popper takes a scalpel to the area to dig deep for the blackhead, which slipped right out like “a little river rock.”

8. This cyst is not clean-cut. It’s a cheesy, gooey, disgusting mess out of this patient’s cheek. ????

Heads up that the “cheesy” consistency of the popped cyst comes from macerated keratin (wet skin cells).

7. This woman traveled far to have a recurrent cyst removed properly by the one and only Dr. Pimple Popper.

Its unfortunate positioning is right next to a tattoo of her deceased boyfriend’s name, so we understand the patient’s desire to be rid of it. Dr. Pimple Popper used a hole punch to remove the cyst while continually squeezing it and then sewed it back together.

6. Meet the teenagers whose moms can’t remove their blackheads no matter how hard they try.

“It’s a lot less painful than my mom’s,” says one teenager to Dr. Lee. “She’s going to be so proud of your nice, clean nose,” Dr. Lee tells her 16-year-old patient.

5. Mr. Wilson is such a famously satisfying patient of Dr. Pimple Popper, she created a compilation video of his “best extractions.”

What makes for a good extraction? Any extraction that is big, surprising, clean or messy, and of course, anything with Dr. Pimple Popper’s hilarious commentary in the background. This baby has 25 million views.

4. Dr. Pimple Popper treated a skin cancer patient’s husband which revealed a “Blackhead Goldmine.”

“This sweet man has been bringing his wife in to see me, and I have been treating a large skin cancer on her face, with her recently getting Mohs skin cancer surgery,” she posted in the video description. “So, he is not directly a patient of mine, but I couldn’t help but notice that he has so many comedones on his nose.  He tends to not pay much attention to himself, spending much of his energy and efforts making sure his wonderful wife is doing alright.  She has more disabilities than he does, in fact, he looks amazing for 90 years old!”

3. In a two-fer, Dr. Pimple Popper removes not one, but TWO dilated pores of winer in a 90-year-old.

“Oh my goodness, this little friend of yours. I think you’re going to lose a little weight today. It’s like a rock,” she tells her patient as she excises the area to “loosen” the pore before she squeezes it out. Of course, we get the slow-mo play-by-play before she moves onto the next blackhead. “Sweetie, you grow ’em,” she says as she goes to the next one. 

She takes a scalpel to the next one to reveal a blackhead trapped underneath there. “You’re storing a little rock under your skin, she tells him.”

2. With 40 million views, watch Dr. Pimple Popper use her trusty tools to remove this “mother” of a cyst.

“Cysts like this have a very thin wall, so I have to make sure we get it all out,” she tells her patient as she digs around in his actual head to cut away the cyst. She uses scissors to literally cut away bits of flesh, and we’re gagging. The patient was worried it was something life-threatening, but it was just a gnarly cyst. “It set up shop, it likes you,” she said as she continues to dig around. ????

1. The #1 slot, with 46 million views goes to this GIANT blackhead extraction that left a hole so large in this woman’s back, Dr. Pimple Popper called it “coin purse.”

An 85-year-old woman came in to have an enormous blackhead removed. Dr. Lee anesthetized the area, attempted to squeeze it, and then just straight-up laughed. Immediately, she went for a pair of tweezers and started to pry the blackhead out of the pore. “It looks like a dog’s toenail,” she said of the disembodied blackhead. 

She then told her patient she could probably fit a diamond or a lentil in the hole left behind. She decided not to close it because it would likely just form another blackhead, so she left nature to do its thing and let the pore slowly close over time.

Eva Mendes Shared A Shocking Photo Of ‘Being Tortured’ While Receiving Mono-Thread Treatment For Her Neck

When it comes to aging and beauty, Eva Mendes is proving she has nothing to be ashamed of.

The forty-six-year-old actress and mother to two gave fans a look into her beauty routine. Shocking followers on Instagram, the actress shared that she maintains her look with a pretty unique, non-invasive injectable procedure. The image proves that whoever thinks “beauty isn’t pain” might have it wrong…

In a post shared to Instagram, Mendes shared a photo of a jawline-tightening treatment known as “mono-threading.” 

The graphic image shows Mendes with her neck tilted backward and tiny syringe pins sticking out from the curve of her jawline. In a caption of the post, Mendes gave more context to the shocking image and writing “This spa-home away from home is incredible! No office with bad fluorescent lighting. No sterile office vibe. This is my go-to for all things beauty. A home where you can relax while being tortured by the best of the best. This is my happy place! Here I am getting some Mono-Threads. Ayyyy Dios!”

Mendes went on to credit Beverly Hills-based esthetician Mariana Vergara and her new office for cosmetic injectables called Beauty Villa Vergara. “So excited to support her as a skilled beauty technician opening her own Latina owned business!” Mendes finished the post. “Pa’lante reina!”

Beauty Villa Vergara shared details of Mendes’ treatment on their Instagram page.

“Mono threads activate collagen synthesis, which produces a gradual skin thickening, skin tightening and rejuvenation effect,” Vergara wrote. “Acupuncture is used mainly to relieve discomfort associated with a variety of diseases and conditions (…). The threads shown are mono threads, which stimulate collagen.”

Vergara went onto explain that the procedure Mendes received is not a face or neck-lifting procedure. Instead, it’s apreventative skin-tightening treatment. “These particular threads do not lift a saggy neck,” Vergara explained in response to questions posted in the comments section of the post. “She doesn’t have a saggy neck. These threads stimulate collagen production and prevent a saggy neck.”

Though Mendes joked that the procedure is “torturous,” Dr. Vergara promised that it’s not as painful as it looks.

“The procedure is minimally invasive and patients usually have mild discomfort. I use numbing cream before placing them,” she explained. “It provides immediate results, but even better results are seen after three months as your body produces collagen. These threads will start to dissolve within six to nine months, but due to the collagen and elastin stimulation the effect will last up to eighteen months.”

Vergara explained that the procedure can be done to more than just a jawline.

“They can go in the cheeks, nasolabial folds, jawline, marionette lines, décolleté, arms, thighs, knees or abdomen,” she explained. “Basically, anywhere collagen stimulation is intended.”

Black is beautiful and Mississippi agrees!

Asya Branch, a student at the University of Mississippi became the first Black woman to be crowned Miss Mississippi USA earlier this year and is now the reigning Miss USA. Branch, who is from Booneville received her sparkling title on Monday after the coronavirus pandemic put the breaks on the event for several months.

Branch used her platform during the pageant to address the current state of our country which is deeply polarized.

She also addressed current gun laws and mistrust in media and government. Branch, who revealed during the contest that her family owns guns, said people should learn how to use guns properly before receiving a permit.

“As someone who grew up in a home with guns, I learned at an early age how to load, how to fire and gun safety, and I think that education should be available to everyone,” she explained during the pageant after being asked to answer a question on a random subject pulled from a box. “I think it’s important that we not ban guns, because obviously, people will find a way to get what they want anyway, but I think it’s our Second Amendment right, and we just need more safety surrounding that.”

In an interview with Miss Mississippi USA, Branch revealed that her father had been incarcerated for 10 years and she’d been inspired by his experience to advocate for criminal justice reform.

 “We’ve lost trust in the systems that seem to keep our country running, from the media to business to our government,” Branch went on to share according to Fox News. “And it’s all about restoring that trust and coming together and working together to heal and trust in these systems. If we want to continue to be the greatest nation, we’re going to have to set a better example.”

Branch shared her disbelief in her win earlier this year in September

“I learned a lot about myself, but at the same time, while sharing my story and going through so much but not letting it stop me, I’ve been able to heal while also helping others find their way,” she said in an interview.

Branch’s win is proof of a change in pageant competitions. Last year, Black women won Miss Universe, Miss USA, and Miss Teen USA for the first time in history. Her win comes alongside another historic victory. Miss Teen USA 2020 Ki’ilani Arruda, became the second Hawaiian woman to win the teen pageant.
