Dr. Sandra Lee of TLC’s reality show, Dr. Pimple Popper is known as one of the most popular dermatologists in her field. Fans get to watch the amazing work she does on the show, fixing the most freaky skin problems. However, what if it was you that had an unusual skin condition? How much would it knock you back for a session with the popular TV doctor? Read on to find out.
How much for a session with Dr. Pimple Popper
Dr. Sandra Lee is a highly qualified dermatologist and is one of the most popular in her field. However, she is also known by the name of Dr. Pimple Popper and celebrity doctors can come with a hefty price tag.
As reported by The Sun, becoming Dr. Lee’s patient starts with a $120 consultation fee. However, the cost only goes up from there, depending on the condition and the required work. Reportedly, her extraction procedures can cost anywhere between $500 and $600 each.
So, you have medical insurance, so it won’t be a problem, right? Not always, as many patients have a battle with their insurance companies as many view professional pimple-popping as an elective cosmetic procedure.
About the TLC show
Dr. Pimple Popper first aired on TLC in 2018 and has since enjoyed three spinoffs. These are aptly titled The 12 Pops of Christmas, Dr. Pimple Popper: Before the Pop and Dr. Pimple Popper Pops Shark Week.
TLC’s description for the show tells us that in 2015, Dr. Lee started providing a window into her work by filming dermatological procedures. Naturally, some of these are quite gruesome, including cyst dissections and blackhead extractions. The good doctor posts these to her website and social media outlets, where they caught the attention of TLC.
The TLC reality show became hugely popular due to the grossly satisfying videos of dermatological techniques. In particular, who can forget her patient Roger, and the removal of his rhinophyma?
What is Dr. Sandra Lee’s net worth?
With the big price tags for her consultations, it looks like Dr. Sandra Lee has a hefty bank account. Celebrity Net Worth reports that she has an estimated net worth of $5 million.
However, it turns out her money doesn’t only come from her career as a dermatologist. She also earns a packet from her highly successful YouTube channel. Lee also has a popular skincare line, SLMD.
Meanwhile, she doesn’t really earn money from her show, Dr. Pimple Popper. Dr. Lee had revealed back in 2018 that most of her money comes from the YouTube channel, which brings in around $6,000 per day in ads. As for Sandra’s salary, this is currently unknown, but reportedly a dermatologist can earn anywhere from $260,000 to $400,000 a year.
Meanwhile, Season 6 of Dr. Pimple Popper dropped on July 14, 2021, and new episodes are available on TLC, Wednesdays at 9 pm ET.
