Watch Dr. Pimple Popper extract the deepest blackhead we’ve ever seen
[Warning: Graphic content ahead.]
I have to admit that I avoid Dr Pimple Popper’s Instagram page at all costs. My mind, my body and soul cannot cope with extractions which are essentially surgical procedures. As soon as I see a scalpel or blood, I go out. However, I can handle the black dot those. Sandra lee, the Southern California cosmetic surgeon and dermatologist behind the account, posted a quick video of one of the knotty blackhead extractions That I’ve never seen. I don’t know if people still use the word “knotty”, but it is the most appropriate word for it. [Ed note: “Gnarly” is 100 percent the best and only accurate adjective here.]
Sarah kinonen, Seducethe associate editor of digital beauty, has had me attend many blackhead videos with it, so I know what is usually going on in them. Usually, Lee presses a black dot on someone’s face or body with a comedone extraction tool with the small metal buckle. After pressing it several times, the blackhead usually releases from the skin. Usually.
However, the black dot on an unidentified part of the body in the new Dr Pimple Popper the video was much more stubborn and deeper than usual. After the tool didn’t do the trick, Lee had to pull out a pair of angled tweezers. (They should not be confused with blackhead forceps Lee bursts out for extracting smaller spots.) She shot – yes, pulled – on the blackhead several times before that finally came out of. Then he left a nice gaping hole in the skin. Ouch.
You can watch the full video below. Sorry in advance if that makes you nauseous – despite the video being strangely satisfying to watch, it made me a little nauseous. Here’s what I realized today: I’m just not cut out for the life of Dr. Pimple Popper. Sarah, you can keep this rhythm going.
