FANS of Dr. Pimple Popper expressed disgust on Twitter as they watched a particularly nasty episode on TLC on Wednesday.
A woman with a cyst the “size of a baby’s HEAD” on her arm went to Dr. Sandra Lee for help and it clearly turned viewers’ stomachs.
Among the tweets included a GIF of a man vomiting and a Twitter user who wrote: “my grandma likes to watch Dr. Pimple Popper while we eat [vomiting emoji]”
“Has anyone run across the Dr. Pimple Popper channel, I just did, and I just about lost it!” came another tweet.
Another person chimed in: “Me: *watching Dr Pimple Popper* Ror: “what are you watching Auntie? What is that gross thing?”
Giving fans a glimpse of what was to come, Sandra took to Instagram on Wednesday to share a clip for Dr. Pimple Popper’s latest episode.
The teaser began with a woman discussing her large cyst, explaining: “The bump looks like the top of a baby’s head.”
“Like I’m delivering a baby that I’ve carried around for 16 years,” she said as the camera gave a close-up look at the cyst near her shoulder.
The teaser continued with other patients explaining their problems, as one man showed off a large red mark on his skin that looks like “a geographical map.”
A following patient unzipped his jeans before showing off a skin tag, while he was heard saying: “Boy, look at that.”
Sandra, 50, then shared her thoughts on the particular mark, joking: “It was smaller than I thought it would be.”
Alongside the clip, the dermatologist wrote: “Watch my new episode Tonight! Wednesday at 9/8c on TLC👉🏼💥👈🏼”
DR. LEE’S PRICES
While Sandra’s sessions are documented on the TV show, viewers may not know much an appointment with the celebrity doctor costs.
The doctor’s starts off with a $120 consultation fee, though the price only goes up from there depending on the work needed.
According to Cheat Sheet, Sandra’s extraction procedures can range anywhere from $500 to $600 each.
Along with the hefty price tag comes a battle with insurance companies as many view professional pimple popping as an elective cosmetic procedure.
Sandra- who rose to fame by uploading grossly satisfying videos of dermatological techniques on YouTube- first began starring on Dr. Pimple Popper in 2018.
During a previous episode of the TLC show, viewers got to watch as Sandra treated a man named Roger with two large rhinophymas on his nose.
Rhinophyma can be caused by rosacea, which is a thickening of oily skin.
The steelworker revealed to Sandra that the lumps started as a pimple 11 years ago.
The two huge growths on his nose attracted flies and made it difficult for him to breathe, while he explained: “I have this big old growth on my nose. They have little holes. That’s where all the puss comes out.”
“I can’t breathe through my nose because of the heaviness. I have to move my nose because I can’t eat right.
“I haven’t worked for a while because everybody gets scared of me. Everybody laughs at me.”
The doctor suggested to Roger that the growth is a lack of proper blood supply, describing his case as “extremely critical.”
