  • In Dr. Pimple Popper's new Instagram video, she helps an elderly gentleman with a severe case of solar comedones.

  • These white blobs of pimples are caused by sun exposure and require slicing and dicing for complete removal.

  • Dr. Pimple Popper uses her scalpel to slice open each one, but thankfully no "permanent scarring" results from the "trauma" in the procedure.

If the sight of blood makes you squeamish, I recommend skipping dermatologist Sandra Lee, MD, a.k.a. Dr. Pimple Popper's latest extraction. It's not for the faint of heart, and there's more than a trace of the red stuff.

Dr. Pimple Popper takes on some very large solar comedones all clustered together in her new Instagram video. These oversized lumps are camped out super close to her patient's eye. They are right in the smile line creases at the corner of his eye.

Dr. Pimple Popper gave a rundown of the procedure in the caption: "Patient came in and had very large solar comedones / aka whiteheads around his eyes, especially his left eye. I wanted to show you what he looks like a few months later, because during the extraction procedure, I did have to nick the skin quite a bit, and there was some bleeding. As you can see (at the end of this video), despite some temporary trauma and bruising, most people heal up very well and there is not residual permanent scarring that is evident. #drpimplepopper #solarcomedones #whiteheads"

Phew, that is all good news and helpful info to know before watching the extraction. When you do click play, Dr. Pimple Popper dives in immediately with her scalpel. She pokes holes and slices into each solar comedone before any squeezing can start.

Finally, she presses with her comedone extractor tool and out comes gobs of white gunk. Yes, the tool is made for these pimples like the name says. Dr. Pimple Popper wields it like the pro she is and clears them all out. The grand finale is a view of her transformed and healed patient. It's the happy ending everyone was hoping for.
