TLC WILL PREMIERE A FULL SEASON OF INTERNET SENSATION "DR. PIMPLE POPPER" ON JULY 11 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT
(Los Angeles) - Following a highly rated one-hour special earlier this year, TLC's DR. PIMPLE POPPER, featuring Instagram and YouTube's popular dermatologist Dr. Sandra Lee, will premiere on Wednesday, July 11 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
"DR. PIMPLE POPPER provides a complete window into my world as a busy dermatologist. The TLC viewer goes on a journey with my patients during this series; first you meet the patients in their hometown, and see how their skin condition affects their life and the people around them. You understand how devastating their condition really is, how it affects their everyday life, and how they interact with others and the world. I evaluate every patient and decide on a treatment course to help their skin conditions - and afterward, we see how we have really transformed their lives!" said Dr. Lee.
The oozingly addictive series will include six, one-hour episodes as viewers follow Dr. Lee as she treats various eye-catching dermatological problems in hopes of allowing her patients to reclaim their lives, free of disguise and embarrassment. Some of the cases featured this season include a mobility-inducing elephant-like skin condition, a discouraging lump and, protruding veins, tumors and cysts that hinder their daily lives and confidence.
