The exploits of Dr Sandra Lee, aka Dr Pimple Popper, have been extensively chronicled on the internet, as the board-certified dermatologist has steadily gained notoriety by busting skin blemishes of all kinds. Her latest video is what you might call a rare breed, though: In it, Lee pops a “unicorn cyst,” so named due to its central placement on the man’s forehead, as well as its considerable size.
As you can see, the procedure is not pretty, as a substantial amount of blood and pus issues forth from this imposing blemish.
“‘He really took good care of this cyst,” Lee says in the video. “He nurtured it and let it get nice and to this size and not popped. That’s impressive.”
Kudos are in order, we suppose.
After draining the cyst, Lee then sews up the man’s forehead, hopefully leaving him with nothing but a small scar in the place where that “unicorn” once stood
Of course, popping something of this calibre yourself is completely unadvisable due to the risk of scarring and infection. If you’re trying to get rid of a cyst this big, seek out help from a doctor or dermatologist of your own. However, if you’re just sick of pimples on your skin, find out if toothpaste really works when it comes to get rid of zits
