Episode 26: Beyond the "Pimple Popper" Persona: A Closer Look at Sandra Lee, MDRelease Date: May 05, 2022
In Episode 26 of Derms and Conditions, our host James Q. Del Rosso, DO talks with board-certified dermatologist Sandra S. Lee, MD who is well known as “Dr. Pimple Popper”, a global social media and television star.
Dr. Del Rosso starts by asking Dr. Lee about her family background related to dermatology. The discussion moves to later in her career when, as a practicing dermatologist, she fortuitously found her way within the world of being a "star" on social media and TV. While Dr. Lee embraced this opportunity, it was not without its challenges. Dr. Lee addresses how she controlled blending her media life and image with her active dermatology practice and how she dealt with certain challenges and criticisms that she faced along the way.
Their discussion concludes with highlighting an important area of education in office-based surgery that Dr. Lee is passionate about: practical and effective use of tumescent anesthesia by dermatologic surgeons for large surgical excisions.
