We take a closer look at Dr. Pimple Popper — the new TLC TV series that isn’t for the faint of heart.

Dr. Pimple Popper — From YouTube to Television

Dr. Sandra Lee made a name for herself on YouTube by inviting viewers to watch as she helped patients pop extreme pimples and address similar abnormalities. Now she’s ready to show even more on TLC!

The good doctor explains the catharsis that both viewers and patients experience, and how one little (or big) pop can relax, decrease anxiety, and mitigate panic attacks.

The new series goes deeper than YouTube. On television we’ll get to follow the patients from start to finish to see how this experience transforms their lives.

You can watch Dr. Pimple Popper Wednesdays on TLC.
