DERMATOLOGY is known as a branch of medicine dealing with the skin.
Dr. Sandra Lee, aka Dr. Pimple Popper, is known as one of the most popular dermatologists in the field.
How much does a session with Dr. Pimple Popper cost?
Being seen by a celebrity doctor can come with an expensive price tag.
While Dr. Lee starts off with a $120 consultation fee, the price only goes up from there, depending on the work needed.
Cheat Sheet reported that Dr. Lee’s extraction procedures can range anywhere from $500 to $600 each.
