  • In the video, Lee said the technique is similar to coring a apple, since it required a tool that “punched” a 4-millimetre hole into the patient’s cyst.

We’re still about a month out from the third season of dermatologist Dr. Sandra Lee’s TLC show “Dr. Pimple Popper,” but she’s offered no shortage of juicy pimple popping content in the meantime.

On Wednesday, Lee shared a YouTube video in which she treated a man’s back cyst with a special technique she referred to as “the MacGyver cyst punch.”

In the video, Lee showed the technique and compared it to coring an apple. She used a device she referred to as a “punch” and placed it on top of the cyst, applying pressure so it created a 4-millimetre deep hole in the cyst.

Then, Lee removed the punch device and was able to drain fluid out of the cyst with a few strategic squeezes.

Watch the whole process below.

Season 3 of “Dr. Pimple Popper” airs on TLC on July 11.
