Imagine having so many blackheads that it looks like you’re wearing a mask – that was the situation one man found himself in before Dermatologist Dr. Sandra Lee, aka “Dr. Pimple Popper,” went to work.
Dr. Lee explains that the “masked man,” also nicknamed “Zorro” by his friends, had a career working with jet engines. The heat in his workplace basically “baked” skin oil into his pores, and then extensive sun damage led to solar comedones -- enlarged blackheads – around his eyes and temples.
“They’re just a cosmetic thing,” Dr. Lee tells The Doctors. And although his appearance was alarming, she adds, he was still a confident and outgoing guy. “He has a great personality so he pulled it off.”
With some hard work on Dr. Lee’s part, his appearance has changed dramatically. And with his blemishes gone, he feels better than ever. “Now his head can’t fit through the door!” she laughs.
