- Dr. Pimple Popper just posted a video of her popping a pilar cyst shaped like a bowling pin.
- These cysts form from hair follicles and are usually filled with keratin.
- In the video, Dr. P discovers there are actually two cysts in the woman’s scalp, connected by their sack.
Dr. Pimple Popper’s at it again, giving her Instagram followers their pop fix with a video of her removing some uniquely-shaped pilar cysts from a female patient’s scalp.
In dermatologist Sandra Lee, MD’s latest video, she makes a small incision on a woman’s scalp, and starts pushing out a round, bloody white ball with her hands. Seems like a pretty standard Dr. Pimple Popper procedure—until you see that it’s not just one cyst, but two, connected in their sac.
“It’s cute!” Dr. Pimple Popper says once the pilar cysts are out in the open. “It looks like a bowling pin,” another woman in the room comments. (Just a quick FYI: Pilar cysts form from hair follicles, and are typically filled with excess keratin, the protein that makes up hair, nails and skin, and shed skin tissue.)
Happy Monday, #popaholics! We’re bowling #strikes today with this bowling pin #pilarcyst! 🎳💥❤️#yabbadabbadoo #drpimplepopper

As Dr. Pimple Popper pulls and cuts the cysts all the way out of the women’s scalp, she says, “I thought these were two entities, but they’re connected, they’re Siamese twins! It got closed off like an hourglass.”
Once the cysts are fully removed, she cuts into pilar cysts’ shared sac and lets someone else (possible the woman who was speaking before, or the patient herself) push out the contents, which look like white mush surrounding a nut. “It’s like a peanut,” the woman holding the cyst says.
Dr. Pimple Popper explains that one of the cysts inside the bowling pin sac has a darker pigment. “That’s super cool,” the other woman says.
“Cool” is probably not the word I would use to describe it, but that’s one way to look at it. At least the patient’s head is lump-free now, and Dr. Pimple Popper’s “popaholics” got their daily dose of extraction.
