How did Dr Sandra Lee become famous?
Dr Sandra Lee found fame way before her hit show, Dr Pimple Popper. In 2015, she started an Instagram account to give people an insight into the world of a dermatologist. Knowing that her field of medicine had a very visual element to it led her to create videos during consultations, surgeries and in-office procedures.
Little did she know how much the idea would really pop off! She soon found that there were many thousands of people watching the ‘popping’ videos and sharing them all over the web.
Since then, Dr Lee has posted thousands of videos ranging from Botox to blackhead extractions all over social media with 7.21 million subscribers on YouTube. Interestingly, this is actually where the idea for the hit show Dr Pimple Popper came from.
