In her latest Youtube video, Dr. Pimple Popper pops an old cyst that’s been growing on a girl’s cheek for four years.
The dermatologist squeezes the cyst and the dead skin inside comes out in a big blob.
She uses tweezers and scissors to remove every last bit of the cyst.
If you’re in need of a lesson in perseverance, look no further than Dr. Pimple Popper’slatest YouTube video.
In the new clip seen on her Instagram page (don’t worry, there’s an extended cut on her YouTube page), dermatologist Sandra Lee, MD, tackles a cyst that’s been growing on her patient’s cheek for years—four years, to be exact.
“Patience is key,” she wrote on the Instagram post, which actually has a “sensitive content” warning, blocking the sight for anyone who dares not click. “Taking this CHEEKY CYST out PIECE BY PIECE,” she added, directing true Dr. Pimple Popper fans to her YouTube page.
In the extended YouTube video, Dr. Pimple Popper dives right in, determined to kick this cyst to the curb. The doctor starts with a little slice to open up the cyst before squeezing with her fingers. The doctor relies on her go-to technique: “Give your cheek a squeeze like grandma does.”
The squeezing works and out pops globs of white goo. JSYK, all that goo is dead skin cells—a cyst is essentially a closed sac under the skin filled with ’em. That means squeezing out the goo is only the beginning, the cyst sac must go, too.
After a few squeezes, Dr. Pimple Popper switches to tweezers and takes hold of what remains. It pulls right out, but this cyst sac is still hanging on. “I’m trying to tease it away from you,” Dr. Pimple Popper says. “This thing is sticking to her.”
She will leave no bit behind and risk the cyst returning. She continues picking away at the cyst sac with her scissors and tweezers. “It just wants to come out in little pieces but we’re taking our time and making sure we get it all,” Dr. Pimple Popper says. Slowly, piece by piece she removes the rest of the cyst. Then, she stitches her patient up and she’s good to go.
