In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper – also known as a dermatologist and TLC moderator Dr. Sandra Lee – bursts some peach-fluff cysts that look like little pearls. The rare growths are known as eruptive vellus hair cysts – and these beauties are definitely worth a watch.
At the beginning of the clip, Dr. Lee starts a growth with a scalpel and then wiggles with a comedone extractor. She tells the patient that she is not sure what the growth is and says that it looks like a whitehead. A little time under the microscope will clarify that.
Next, Dr. Bang Lee several tiny eruptive vellus hair cysts that look like tiny pearls or pearls. The famous derm tells the patient that these growths contain tiny coils of hair that can be viewed under the microscope.
"I didn't know how many different cysts, blackheads, etc. exist." A fan commented on the clip. "They all look so different and pop differently. These are really interesting."
While this fan revealed the educational value of the clip, another fan simply commented: "GET IT OUT!"
Eruptive Vellus hair cysts are growths that originate from Vellus hair follicles. The growths contain the light, barely noticeable vellus hair that all people have on their bodies and which some call peach lint. These special cysts are rare and usually occur in children and young adults. They most often appear on the chest, limbs and abdomen.
