  • Dr. Pimple Popper helps excavate some whiteheads behind a patient's ear in her latest video.

  • The dermatologist utilized a comedone extractor to pop the clogged pores.

  • The pimples were clogged with waxy, dead skin cells.

Dr. Sandra Lee, MD, a.k.a. Dr. Pimple Popper, capped off her week with an earful of whitehead extraction—as in, she extracted an ear full of clogged pores.

One of her patients came in with not one, but two giant whiteheads and a blackhead behind his ears, which she drained using a comedone extractor. Since the skin behind his ears is flat, the pimples are, too, so they were pretty tough to drain at home.

"Every now and then you try to squeeze them and it's really hard, huh?" Dr. Lee asks the patient. She then pops a whitehead, then the first blackhead, both of which are full of waxy, dead skin cells. The bigger one seems daunting, but drains right away.

"Very nice and easy, I'm surprised. I would think just a little fingernail's going to squeeze that one out," she says.

"It’s #FRIDAY! Let me EAR all that you’ve accomplished this week, whether big or small! #drpimplepopper #fridayvibes," Dr. Lee captioned the video, a true testament to life's tiny victories.

Whiteheads form when dead skin cells, oil, and bacteria get trapped inside your pores, causing it to swell up and become painful. Causes vary, but they're often caused by hormonal fluctuations during puberty, menstruation, and pregnancy, plus with certain forms of birth control. Meanwhile, blackheads are clogged hair follicles.

After watching Dr. Lee extract these pesky whiteheads, one Popaholic announced her plans to play Pimple Popper at home this weekend, commenting, "I got my comedone in the mail today so I’ll be cleaning out some blackheads on the men in my house tonight So stokes!!! Love you and all your videos ❤️"
