Since posting her first YouTube videos showing blackhead extractions in 2014, Dr. Sandra Lee, more commonly known as Dr. Pimple Popper, has become a household name. In a few short years, Dr. Pimple Popper has gone from being a board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon to a worldwide social media and reality TV phenomenon with over 2.8 million followers on Instagram, over 4 million YouTube subscribers, and videos that have been viewed over 2 billion times. Dr. Pimple Popper’s followers, lovingly known as Popaholics, come back video after video to watch her push, squeeze, and pop everything from blackheads to cysts to lipomas, and witness her patients leave her office with a renewed sense of confidence and self-worth. Whether you watch the videos for educational purposes or shock value, Dr. Pimple Popper keeps you informed and entertained.
In 2014, dermatologist Dr. Sandra Lee noticed an unusual increase in views and popularity of her “popping” videos, YouTube videos that visually demonstrate her treating skin concerns through popping them. Dr. Lee hoped that these videos would shine a light on the field of dermatology and allow her viewers a backstage pass to see what she does on a daily basis. The original “popping” videos, as well as the thousands that have followed, are designed to give patients from all walks of life a better understanding of their health and well-being as well as the tools to treat and take care of their skin. After her videos went viral and her Instagram exploded, Dr. Sandra Lee took on the name of Dr. Pimple Popper and has been seen everywhere from YouTube to The Doctors to Studio11LA. Dr. Lee can now be seen on her new venture, TLC’s new reality TV show, Dr. Pimple Popper, where viewers can get an up-close window into her work aiding patients who suffer from significant skin-related insecurities.
A Skincare Line to Boast About
After years of consideration, Dr. Sandra Lee created and now offers her very own skincare line that treats and prevents the formation of acne. SMLD Skincare provides a range of anti-acne products that are safe, reliable, and effective. Acne is a constant source of frustration, one that Dr. Pimple Popper regularly sees, and not every patient has the option to visit a dermatologist. SMLD allows patients to fight acne at home to achieve beautiful, blemish-free skin.
Treating Skin Worldwide
Through social media, Dr. Pimple Popper has been able to reach patients from all corners of the world, and these patients travel hundreds and thousands of miles to see her and experience her expertise in treating their skin insecurities. While many of the conditions that Dr. Pimple Popper treats are not life-threatening, they affect the patient’s quality of life and the way they perceive themselves and their beauty. Through popping, Dr. Sandra Lee has reached multiple generations and has given them the tools to love and understand their skin.
