Not everyone gets the distinguished honor of being called Dr. Pimple Popper, but Dr. Sandra Lee has certainly earned the title! This California-based dermatologist has racked up more than 3.2 million subscribers through her YouTube channel — which hosts close to 1,000 videos of pimples being popped, blackheads getting extracted, and cysts and lipomas getting excised — and now she has her own TLC show.
You’ve probably seen her handiwork on social media, and if you’re anything like us, you couldn’t look away. But how much do you really know about the Internet sensation? Here’s her backstory…
What’s Dr. Pimple Popper’s age?
Dr. Sandra Lee is 47 years old, having been born (with a pimple-free face, we imagine) on Dec. 20, 1970. Are all Sagittariuses this good at attacking acne?
What’s Dr. Sandra Lee’s nationality?
Dr. Sandra Lee was born in Flushing, NY. She tells 8Asians that she’s Chinese, with her father hailing from Singapore and her mother coming from Malaysia. According to a GoFundMe campaign of hers, she inherited her dermatology business from her father. We also know she got her undergrad degree at the University of California, Los Angeles, then attended Drexel University College of Medicine. But her fame has gone international, with horrified people around the world seeing her pimple-popping videos!
Who is Dr. Pimple Popper’s husband?
Dr. Sandra Lee is married to Dr. Jeffrey Rebish, her partner in the dermatology biz and a frequent star of her videos! She and Jeffrey have two young sons who do not rank among her YouTube subscribers, as she told Yahoo7 in 2015. “One of them can’t stand it, and the other one barely entertains it because he doesn’t want to hurt my feelings,” she revealed. (Well, it’s not for everyone!)
What’s Dr. Sandra Lee’s location?
According to her website, she's a board-certified dermatologist practicing general and cosmetic dermatology in Southern California. Her and her husband’s company, Skin Physicians and Surgeons, is based out of Upland, CA.
