Dr. Pimple Popper has become famous for other people's kites, cysts and blackheads, but her husband says she has never got into the skin.
As her YouTube channel exploded, California-based Dr. Sandra Lee, 40, has made her TV a success by launching her TLC show, where she performs disgusting but strangely satisfying operations for people with different skin conditions. But her viral video fans might be surprised to know that her husband is also a dermatologist.
Dr. Jeffrey Rebish, who met Lee Lee when both were in a medical school, recently spoke with Refinery29 about their marriage, the fame of his wife and his thoughts on her theater career.

Jeffrey said that this is partly because it is just Sandra's job and she likes to keep away from her life.
"Sandra will tell you that she is not a popaholic," he said. "I think she has never stuck anything on my skin, which could be a little disappointing for her fans – because husband-wife surgery will definitely create a good TV."
They've certainly been long enough to give her a chance during a meeting before they were doctors.
"We are both in a medical school in Philadelphia to become dermatologists," Jeffrey revealed. "Sandra went to the room orienteering day, and I knew right away that she was one."
The couple dated the whole school before graduation and moved to California – where Sandra grew up – to take over her father's dermatology practice.

The couple also have two sons together.
"We are both dermatologists during the day, but we have very different roles in the office," he explained to the publication.

"It's not what I want to do, but these theater operations have always been her specialty," Jeffrey said.
Sandra's side hustle, in which she entered dr. Pimple Popper substitute, YouTube started. But the dermatologist actually waited for a few years to inform her husband about the video until she got more effect.
"When YouTube paid her and the videos really brought the money, she filled me," he said. "I didn't know what to do because Dr Pimple Popper was at that moment, but still modest – probably about 5,000 subscribers.
"Then the deepest thing happened: Some media found their page and re-published one of their videos. After the news was there, it was a fire.
Opening the YouTube Channel and TLC Exhibition Dr Pimple Popper has become a brand, so how the couple divides their workload has changed.
"I take an easy place where she could have more presence if it didn't show," he said. "Sometimes it takes care of boys or works with her contracts.
"After all, I'll always be involved in any way that Sandra would have for me because we are a team."
