Are you ready to pop, y’all? Dr. Pimple Popper (Dr. Sandra Lee) of the YouTube and Instagram fame is coming to a TV screen near you — full-time. After the success of Dr. Lee’s one-hour special on TLC earlier this year, the network decided to keep the pimple party going.
Described by TLC as an "oozingly addicted series," Dr. Pimple Popper will include six, one-hour episodes that follow Dr. Lee as she treats various eye-catching dermatological problems. Some such cases include a mobility-inducing elephant-like skin condition, a discouraging lump, protruding veins, tumors, and cysts.
Not only will the series serve as the perfect guilty pleasure for viewers, but it will transform the lives of Dr. Lee’s patients forever. "The TLC viewer goes on a journey with my patients during this series; first you meet the patients in their hometown, and see how their skin condition affects their life and the people around them," Dr. Lee explains. "You understand how devastating their condition really is, how it affects their everyday life, and how they interact with others and the world."
The best part? Unlike other reality shows, Dr. Pimple Popper will show the patient’s story from start to finish. "I evaluate every patient and decide on a treatment course to help their skin conditions — and afterward, we see how we have really transformed their lives!" Dr. Lee says.
