  • Dr. Pimple Popper's latest video features a deeply embedded blackhead that requires a little bit of extra elbow grease.

  • A blackhead is a hair follicle that has become clogged with dead skin and sebum and then exposed to oxygen creating a black "head."

  • While some blackheads pop with a squeeze, Dr. Pimple Popper has to do some "fishing" to get this one free.

In her latest Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper — aka dermatologist and TLC's Dr. Sandra Lee — is up to her usual pops with a fresh blackhead extraction. While many of her juiciest moments come from squeezing these plugged hair follicles and releasing their sebum and dead skin, her latest blemish "puts up a fight" according to the doctor. However, this is Dr. Pimple Popper, and she always comes out victorious in a fight.

The video begins with Dr. Lee using her trusty comedo extractor, pressing deeply into the skin in order to free the top of the blackhead. This dried bit of blemish, however, doesn't want to move, and Dr. Lee has to grab a scalpel. Carefully, she opens up the plugged follicle a bit more before going back into it.

She's able to free a bit more of the gunk, but it's just not enough — only a bit of the head comes out. To get the job done, Dr. Lee brings in the big tools, grabbing a pair tweezers and going on what one Instagram user calls a "fish n' dig." Inserting the metal tool into the incision, Dr. Lee is able to fish through and "catch" this blackhead.
