How to remove blackheads videos

How to remove blackheads videos DEFAULT

Among the beauty trends that have come out of 2016 (hello pretty sparkles and soft smoky eyes!), watching blackhead removal videos ranks as one of the strangest, yet most mesmerizing.

As we previously reported, psychologists explain that the reason we feel a sweet sense of satisfaction from watching someone's pimple getting popped or blackhead getting extracted is for the same reason we can't look away from a horror movie or enjoy the thrill of a rollercoaster ride—it's an adrenaline rush. Also, it doesn't hurt that you get to experience the oozing vicariously, rather than having to get up close and personal with it IRL. (However, if you are removing your own blackhead—because let's be real, we all get them—this is how to do it correctly.)

In addition to the video that made 22 million stomachs queasy, we've rounded up the grossest and the top-clicked blackhead removal videos of the year. Together, they've been watched a collective 52.9 million times. Hate-watch them over again if you dare.

PS: It's kind of safe to say that if you have a sensitive stomach or a big lunch, the below videos probably aren't for you. You've been warned!

We'd be crazy not to start with this bad boy. If you haven't already seen it, join the 22 million who have.

When a belly button stone extraction generates this comment, "Omg I love this one," it must be either really gross, or....REALLY gross.

One commenter "nearly yelled YOINK when that thing came out," and we're right there with him.

This man's poor wife didn't have any luck removing these blackheads from his back, so they turned to a professional for help.

We had to throw a classic in there.

This one is a long one. IMO, it's especially hard to watch, but almost harder to look away.

It's titled, "Back Blackheads from Heaven." Enough said.

This guy is removed without a comedone extractor tool, so if needles aren't your thing, neither is this video.

• In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper removes a large cluster of blackheads from a man's back.
• During the procedure, she uses her comedone extractor tool to remove the blackheads.
• Blackheads are common, and often form when a combination of oil and dead skin cells clog a pore.

In her latest Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper got back to work along with the rest of us, kicking her Monday off with a series of blackhead extractions on a patient's back. In the clip, Dr. Pimple Popper—aka, dermatologist and TLC host Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—uses her trusty comedone extractor to remove the blackheads more smoothly and safely than pinching them, which can cause irritation. Adjacent to the blackheads, she notes, are brown spots known as benign seborrheic keratoses, a type of noncancerous skin growth that can typically develop in older adults, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Blackheads are extremely common, affecting up to nearly 50 million people every year, according to MedicalNewsToday. They tend to form when a combination of oil and dead skin cells clogs your pores, and take on their distinctive color when sebum exposed to the air undergoes the process of oxidation.

Thankfully, if you're dealing with blackheads yourself, there are simpler ways to get rid of them. For mild cases, dermatologist Heidi Waldorf, MD, recommends starting with an over-the-counter cleanser containing salycylic acid. Clay masks, pore strips, and retinol creams can help, too. Check out a few of our expert-approved picks.

Pimple popping videos are so gross, yet somehow, they're also satisfying. Maybe it's because they fly in the face of the longstanding rule that we're not even supposed to touchacne, let alone poke at zits until they explode.

Granted, it's a valid rule — while it may be one of the hardest things to resist, picking our zits isn’t worth the scars and possible infections that it can lead to. Plus, covering up a crusty, erupted breakout is much more difficult than you might think.

However, even if we follow a strict washing, toning, and treatment routine, pimples can still make some unexpected appearances. According to dermatologists, there are some safer ways to pop your pimples if you absolutely must, and we have to admit that doing so is pretty satisfying. We’ve all heard of Dr. Sandra Lee AKA Dr. Pimple Popper, and her viral zit popping YouTube videos. A lot of people may find acne extraction videos gross and nauseating, but they have a pretty large fanbase, according to Dr. Pimple Popper’s 2.9 million Instagram followers.

Here, we've rounded up the 15 best pimple-popping. Sit back, relax, and get ready to squirm in your seat.

1. Pop Goes the Sebaceous Cyst

This one looks like it hurts. Though technically not a pimple, we couldn't resist including this cyst.

2. Tons of Whitehead Extractions

The one and only Dr. Lee extracts countless whiteheads from a patient's cheeks.

3. A Jungle of Zits

Eleven minutes of eyebrow extractions for your pimple-popping pleasure.

4. Don't Mind the Pimple Inside My Ear

A pimple inside the ear? This is one of the weirdest places to get a zit.

5. Or the Pimple on My Earlobe

We can't decide what's more cringeworthy: a pimple on the inside or the ear or a cyst on the earlobe?

6. Extremely Magnified Blackhead Removal

Another pimple popping video that most definitely is not for the faint of heart.

7. Massive Zit Popping on Knee

A man pops the zit on his knee (which shoots out pus in spectacular fashion). You can hear his significant other's shock as she blurts out: "Oh my God, this thing is like a volcano."

8. Little Squirt

As Dr. Lee squeezes, the pus just keeps coming and coming (and we're into the background music).

9. Projectile Pimple

That definitely got some air. When a pimple is this explosive, you have to share the news with your family apparently.

10. A Volcanic Eruption

How is this even real? It looks ridiculously painful, and the oozing just won't stop.

11. Best Whitehead in History

This is literally the most up close and personal we've ever been with a whitehead (even our own).

12. So Long and Stringy

Apparently, pimples in the ear region are more common than not! The pus keeps coming out, but at least it doesn't hurt. Also, we love this girl's nail color.

13. Bumps Galore

We can't look away from these small but mighty extractions.

14. Cheek Extractions—No Big Deal

This girl is so chill as the dermatologist expresses all the bacteria from her cheeks.

15. Eyebrow Pop through a Bunch of Hair

This man's face gets a major squeeze as pus emerges from his eyebrow.

16. The Never-Ending Whitehead

This insanely long whitehead looks more like a spaghetti noodle. What in the world?!

17. Cottage Cheese

Check out the cottage-cheese like pop on this cyst.

18. All the Oozing

This massive blemish won't stop oozing, and we can't look away.

19. Special Effects Pimple

This "pimple" is made entirely from special effects makeup — and just as gross as the real thing!

20. Slice n' Explode

This cyst bursts as soon as the dermatologist cuts the skin. Yikes!

21. 55-Year-Old Blackhead

This massive blackhead has been brewing for nearly six decades and feels like "a petrified rock."

22. Up Close and Personal with a Pore Strip

True, this isn't a "pop" in the traditional sense, but it's just as satisfying.

23. Insane Blackhead Extractions

There's no end in sight with these extractions that keep oozing out.

Acne Removal Blackhead - Satisfying Videos With Reyan Beauty #589

Dr. Pimple Popper fans, this one's for you: In this episode of Macro Beauty, we get an up-close-and-personal look at Folayemi Akinbolaji's first-ever extreme blackhead removal. Akinbolaji, who goes by Fola, only started getting acne on her face within the last two years. She recently decided to get her blackheads removed to help smooth her skin texture and even out her complexion.

Rather than feeling nervous about the extraction procedure, Akinbolaji was looking forward to it, thanks to Michelle Henry, MD, the board-certified dermatologist who would be guiding her through her skin journey. "I'm very excited to work with Dr. Henry, most importantly, because she is a Black woman," Akinbolaji said. "I'm a Black woman, and who else is more qualified than her to do this procedure on me and tell me what it is that's causing my acne."

In her Manhattan office, Dr. Henry explains how blackhead removals can help the skin, and what her client should expect. She begins by cleansing Akinbolaji's skin, then presses the tip of an 18-gauge needle into the pore to avoid excess pressure that can lead to damaged and enlarged pores, scarring, and hyperpigmentation. "That's why I always encourage my patients not to do this at home, because it's very difficult to make sure that you have even pressure," Dr. Henry says. "If you don't have even pressure, what can happen is that the clog can actually go backwards and cause more inflammation." She continues by using cotton-tipped applicators to squeeze the sides of each pimple until it pops.

The second technique uses a metal comedone extractor to gently push the clog out while applying equal pressure around the pore. While watching the video, it might look like the gauge puncturing the skin is the most painful part, but Dr. Henry says that's probably the least uncomfortable step. "What's probably the most uncomfortable is actually the squeezing," she says. "It's mild discomfort, nothing extreme, and most tolerate it really well" — and even if you don't, the procedure is done in ten minutes max. Immediately after the treatment, Dr. Henry notes that any swelling Akinbolaji experienced would go down overnight, and she'd be able to see results by morning.

If you're curious but nervous about having an extraction session, Dr. Henry assures there's minimal negative long-term consequences and there's little-to-no down time. "For anyone who's afraid of getting an extreme blackhead removal, I would just say try it," Akinbolaji says. "If you care about your skin and you want it to get better, and you want the best optimal health you can, I say just do it."

The best blackhead removal videos of 2018


Some pimple-popping videos draw in viewers with the promise of gigantic skin aberrations, like lipomas the size of bowling balls and decades-old cysts as big as grapefruits.

But others garner millions of views by featuring a much smaller, subtler type of pimple: the humble blackhead.

Blackheads happen when a pore gets clogged with dead skin cells (which your skin is always shedding), Propionibacterium acnes (a bacteria that lives on your skin), and sebum (an oily substance secreted by tiny glands inside your pores).

They get their namesake color not from dirt but from oxygen. Blackheads by definition are open to the air. When exposed to oxygen, their contents turn a brownish-black color, according to the US National Institutes of Health.

Amateurs and experts use a swatch of different tools to remove blackheads, from tweezers to pore strips to cotton swabs to vacuum devices to dental floss (really). Not all of these methods get the stamp of approval from dermatologists, of course, but they do share one common quality: They're really, really satisfying to watch.

Below, in no particular order, INSIDER has rounded up some of the greatest and most-watched blackhead removal videos posted to the internet in 2018. Stay tuned as the year progresses — INSIDER will keep updating this post as new blackheads emerge.

1. The "50-year-old blackheads" around the eyes

As of this writing, more than 2 million people have watched this video featuring dozens of 50-year-old blackheads clustered around a man's eye. It was posted in March by India-based dermatologist and cosmetologist Lalit Kasana, who used two Q-tips and gentle pressure for the 14-minute extraction session. PS: There's another video showing blackhead removal around the patient's other eye.

2. The hour-long blackhead session

Got a deep appreciation for blackheads and plenty of time to kill? Settle in and enjoy this video from Gà Spa, a YouTube account run by a spa in Vietnam. The video focuses on one patient whose face is scattered with clogged pores — so many clogged pores that clearing them all out takes almost 56 minutes.

There are no frills or surprises here. It's just a long stretch of gentle, systematic, professionally filmed blackhead extractions, one after another after another. It's no wonder this was among the most-upvoted blackhead videos shared to Reddit's /r/popping in 2018.

3. Dr. Pimple Popper's popular pop

Dermatologist Sandra Lee (aka Dr. Pimple Popper) has posted dozens of popping videos on her YouTube channel this year. But this one, posted all the way back in the first week of January, remains her one of her most-watched of 2018, with more than 8 million views to date.

It features a dilated pore of winer — essentially a giant blackhead clogging a single, super-stretched-out pore. The first big squeeze happens around the one-minute mark.

4. The double-pore ear blackhead

The 澄熒SPA YouTube channel — owned by a spa in Taiwan — may not be as famous as Dr. Pimple Popper's, but it's a treasure trove of excellent in-the-ear blackhead videos.

One recent example, posted in July, shows a single ear blackhead that spans two separate pores. Skip ahead to the three-minute mark for the big payoff.

5. The one with an instant replay

It's hard to choose from 澄熒SPA's many great blackhead removals, but this short and sweet installment posted in February stands out from the pack. (It won over lots of fans when it was later reshared on Reddit.)

The featured ear blackhead pops out in one clean piece right around the one-minute mark. There's even an instant replay in case you blink and miss it.

6. The soothing acne session

Here's another one for those who love long, relaxing popping videos.

It comes courtesy of aesthetician Enilsa Brown, who posts lengthy acne extraction sessions on her popular YouTube channel. This one from January is her second most popular ever, with 7.3 million views as of this writing.

It focuses mostly on a patient's blackheads, but there's a bonus whitehead around the five-minute mark that's truly unforgettable.

7. The "never-ending blackhead surprise"

This video from June starts with Lee popping some tiny blackheads on a patient's nose. Then, the patient reveals that she has another blackhead hiding behind her ear.

That surprise blackhead does not disappoint: It comes out in one piece and is far larger than it seems at first glance. Watch it starting at the four-minute mark below:

8. The stubborn ear blackhead

Here's another entry from YouTube's Enilsa Brown, first posted in July. It features an ear blackhead that puts up a fierce fight against Brown's comedone extractor. But that struggle makes the eventual pop even more satisfying. It also includes a second ear blackhead that pops out with far less coaxing. 

9. The "large waxy blackheads"

This video appears to originate from the Instagram account of Estética Leandra Coelho, a spa located in Brazil, according to its corresponding Facebook page. When a regram of the video was posted on Reddit in October, the post title was simple but evocative: "Two large waxy blackheads."

And that's exactly what it shows: The gentle removal of two very big blackheads in someone's cheek. 

"I totally love this and I am so sad it ended so soon," one Reddit commenter wrote about the video. 

10. A slow and steady pore strip video 

Towards the end of December, Reddit user Beatrix_BB_Kiddo shared a 30-second video where she slowly removes a pore strip from her boyfriend's back. In the zoomed-in video, you can see the removal of dozens of blackheads. It was so enticing that people were begging for her to "do his whole back" and offering tips on the best method. 

Further in the comment section, Beatrix_BB_Kiddo wrote that her boyfriend also has what she believes to be pili multigemini. According to Men's Journal, pili multigemini is when several hairs from from one  single follicle. This could explain why some of the remnants on the pore strip are darker than others.

11. A half-hour's worth of nose blackheads

Ahead of the holiday season, YouTuber Enilsa Brown released a 30-minute compilation of nose extractions. Although there are some non-blackhead removals in the mix, the majority of the video shows the esthetician unclogging dark substance from the pores.

If you don't have a half hour to spare, we suggest skipping to 1:11 and 6:33 for the best of the compilation.

Amazing Blackheads Remover on the Face #007
  • Dermatologist Sandra Lee, MD, a.k.a. Dr. Pimple Popper, gifted her 'Popaholics' some incredible blackhead removal content over the weekend.
  • On Saturday, she shared an emotional video featuring one of her beloved patients named Pops.
  • And on Sunday, she shared her final blackhead video of an extraction from a patient's arm. In this one, she uses both a blade and a comedone extractor.

Dermatologist Sandra Lee, MD, a.k.a. Dr. Pimple Popper, gifted her "Popaholics" some incredible blackhead removal content over the weekend. (If you're obsessed with blackhead extractions, she also shared her "Dr. Pimple Popper's Top Pops: Blackheads of 2020" last week, if you're interested.)

On Friday, she started the weekend off with a video featuring her extracting some huge blackheads from a patient's back.

"Flashback Friday 💥 Thought you could use some BIG. BACK. BLACKHEADS to end the night! Full video up on my YOUTUBE now! Happy Friday! #drpimplepopper#blackheads#extractions," she captioned the video.

Then on Saturday, she shared an emotional video featuring one of her beloved patients named Pops. While she went to work on some huge blackheads on his nose, she shared his backstory. We learned that Pops' wife had recently passed away (and she had always accompanied him to his Dr. P appointments). He was despondent and had to be moved to an assisted care facility. And he was also concerned about finances. She started a GoFundMe for him, and the 'Popaholics' helped raise over $12,000. Sadly, Pops passed away in 2016, but the story is still so sweet.

"THIS is why I keep popping. I love the #popaholic community, and it’s amazing to see how far it reaches. ❤️💥 #drpimplepopper#blackheads," she captioned the video.

And on Sunday, she shared her final blackhead video of an extraction from a patient's arm. In this one, she uses both a blade and a comedone extractor to remove the massive blackhead that comes right out.
