If you say the words "pilar cyst" Seeing in a video by Dr. Pimple Popper, this is usually an indication that you're going to see a pretty dramatic extraction, and in her latest Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper – also known as Dermatologist and TLC presenter Dr. Sandra Lee – gentle on the fact that pilar cysts can occur in a variety of shapes and sizes.
This cyst, which lies rather unfavorably directly above the patient's eye, is one of the smallest that we have seen lately and you might almost mistake her for a simple zit if you do not Lee's comment would be. Pilar cysts, in contrast to average pimples, are fluid-filled sacs that form on the surface of the scalp, according to MedicalNewsToday. Mostly they are smaller and invisible, which means people can just give them time to disappear on their own. (As the article notes, pilar cysts can be as small as 0.5 millimeters.)
Lee, trapped under the skin, stood out, making it a bigger problem than most. After a short pinch followed by a pair of tweezers, Dr. Lee successfully cysts over the woman's eye and the difference is instantly recognizable.
"Nice and flat", adds dr. Lee added. "That feels pretty good."
Season 3 by Dr. med. Pimple Popper airs Thursday night at 8/9 in the center of TLC.
