Call it a Big Bang blackhead. In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper—aka, dermatologist and TLC host Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—removes massive blackhead from a single stretched pore. The compacted growth is actually called a dilated pore of Winer in official terms, which is essentially a humungous blackhead. And the crater this growth leaves behind is out of this world.
In the video, Dr. Pimple Popper uses a comedone extractor to push down on the compacted growth, pulling out its dark brownish contents with ease. Like most blackheads, this one is tacky and gooey underneath the surface.
“Pretty one,” Dr. Lee exclaims after removing the blackhead. Well, that’s one way to look at it.
A dilated pore of Winer essentially a large blackhead, which is defined by a keratin plug in a single enlarged pore surrounded by normal skin. This means the large crater left behind by this extraction is actually a single pore that has been stretched from the compacted contents gathering inside. It’s pretty unbelievable.
Though blackheads normally don’t cause pain, Dr. Lee comments that the patient reported the growth “pushing” on her, making removal an appealing option.
