Sandra Lee, aka Pimple Popper, is back and busier than ever in a brand new season of TLC’s show, which premieres on February 3rd.
At 9 p.m., on the 16th.
This season, ET Lee returns “armed with her scalpel, splash mask, and sensitive disposition” to help patients with long-term skin conditions.
Lee is taking on unusual cases in the new season, including a condition called “puffy head cylindroma,” which she has never seen before, a man with a cyst so large that it has almost completely covered his eye, and a woman whose eczema has caused her OCD and agoraphobia.

Betty Song’s mission is to help solve difficult and “sometimes extreme cases” that other doctors might avoid in order to help their patients’ lives be changed forever.
Lee’s pimple-popping videos made her an internet celebrity, with millions of followers on social media, when Pimple Popper debuted on TLC in July 2018.
In 2018, she joked to PopCulture.com, “I feel like I’m the Pied Piper of pimples at times.”
“I think what I was really trying to do was show people why I love what I do and the complexities of [dermatology], and I think I found something that piqued people’s interest — pimple popping.”
I had no idea it was such a big deal… and when I saw it, I just grabbed it.
‘OK, this is a thing,’ I thought to myself.
Let’s see how much I can expand it.’
Because so many people were “embarrassed” to admit they enjoyed watching “pimple porn,” Lee admitted it was “tough” to grow with what some call “pimple porn” videos.
“So we brought that out in the open, which is a good thing,” she explained.
“The fact that it makes people happy sustains us the most.”
We’re improving people’s self-esteem.
We’re making people who watch it feel content and happy, and it’s also helping to reduce stress and relax people.”
Pimple Popper is back for a brand new season on Wednesday, February 1st.
