In Dr. Pimple Popper's new Instagram video, she helps a patient with recurring milia.
She has squeezed out the little white bumps before, but they keep reappearing in new and different locations.
Dr. Pimple Popper uses her scalpel and comedone extractor tool to drain all the contents out of the latest batch of milia on her chin.
There are so many things to love about dermatologist Sandra Lee, MD, a.k.a. Dr. Pimple Popper. Her sweet bedside manner is a crowd-pleaser, and she's always dropping all the knowledge for fans. Of course, her actual pimple popping videos deserve all the love. In her latest video, Dr. Pimple Popper is giving all the love to one specific type of pimple: the milia.
She gives an into in the caption: "A little milia love to start the day! 👉🏼💕👈🏼 TAP to shop your very own Dr. Pimple Popper Official Comedone Extractor or go to drpimplepopper.com/shop💥 #drpimplepopper"
Dr. Pimple Popper keeps the commentary to a minimum on this silent video. She does share a few text tidbits on the screen. "She keeps getting new milia, the same ones don't really come back..."
FYI Milia are white, but they are very different than whiteheads. Dr. Pimple Popper previously shared, "Did you know the difference between a whitehead and a milium? 🤔 A whitehead is a clogged pore that usually occurs due to hormones, while a milia does not occur this way. Milia occur when keratin builds up underneath the skin, getting trapped below the epidermis, creating a cyst."

The more you know, right? Armed with that knowledge, you can fully enjoy the popping process. Dr. Pimple Popper starts by poking the milia with her scalpel. It creates an opening and escape route for all that keratin stored up under the skin.
Then, Dr. Pimple Popper applies pressure with her comedone extractor tool. Like magic, all the gunk inside the milia spurts out in a blob. There is a lot of gunk, too. She knocks out one, before moving onto the next victim, er pimple.
