Dr. Pimple Popper: Your Guilty Pleasure

posted on: May 21, 2015

Untitled design (1)A few weeks ago, Dr. Lee and I were discussing one of the segments she had taped on The Doctors Show. Her most popular clips seemed to be the ones in which she was removing cysts or blackheads.

“Why don’t we create an Instagram account that only shows us removing things that pop? Blackheads, etc..?!” I asked her.

Thats when @drpimplepopper was born.

There is something deeply satisfying about watching the removal of these skin imperfections. What I didn’t realize was how many other people felt the same way! Almost overnight, @drpimplepopper gained thousands of followers (at time of publishing 154,000 are following these 15 sec. videos of guilty pleasure)

Our Instagram has touched all corners of the world thanks to coverage by Buzzfeed USA, The Guardian, Allure Magazine Blog, Cosmopolitan.com, Daily Mail UK, Irish Mirror, Huffington Post UK, Terra Brasil. Thanks to such exposure, we have been able to give back to one of Dr. Lee’s special patients, Mr. Wilson.

Mr. Wilson lost his wife recently, and for each visit while Dr. Lee squeezed him, he would share more of his story, which touched many viewers. Thanks to a Gofundme.com collection started by Dr. Lee, Mr. Wilson was gifted $6,800 to help his current financial situation, and brighten his day since his wife passed away.
