Dr Pimple Popper Cast: Who is in it?
The show revolves around Dr Sandra Lee, famously known as Dr Pimple Popper who has been operating as a dermatologist out of the Inland Empire city of Upland, California for over a decade now. Her first encounter with YouTube was back in 2010 when she started her channel, but it wasn’t until 2014 when she witnessed the growing popularity of her Instagram videos that she decided to record the procedures performed on her patients and post them online.
For every treatment recorded, she obtains written permission from her clients and offers them a discount in exchange. She has an ever-growing fanbase with over 4 million followers and 1 billion views on her various posts. Lee fashioned the screen name “Dr Pimple Popper” after which she was approached by TLC in 2018 to star in her own series. Further, on the list of her credits are appearances on Tosh.0 and The Doctors.
Apart from her, Dr Jeffrey Rebish, her husband appears in a recurring capacity on the series.
Dr Pimple Popper Plot: What is it about?
Sandra Lee’s first ever Instagram post that drew in followers by the thousands was a blackhead extraction video which was followed by a video on multiple blackheads’ extraction posted on YouTube. Through her series (two seasons aired so far) and her social media handles, Lee has managed to spread awareness amongst people of many common and uncommon skin abnormalities.
Lee’s work mostly revolves around laser treatments, dermatological, and cosmetic surgery. Her patients usually include men and women battling self-esteem issues from abnormal skin disorders that have rendered them homeless on various occasions from lack of jobs, restricted careers and hampered their social lives. In her own words, she is “a board-certified dermatologist, skin cancer surgeon, and cosmetic surgeon, who is a regular guest dermatologist on various TV shows.”
