 5 Pimple Popping Videos That Are So Satisfying to Watch

PSA: Please don’t pop your pimples. We know it may be tempting to give your whitehead a squeeze, watch your cyst explode with pus or get up close and personal and press on your blackheads, but avoiding the temptation to pick and prod your face is vital. Because pimple popping can lead to scarring and infection, it’s a job best left to the professionals. To help you suppress the urge to start squeezing your own zits, we’ve rounded up the most oddly satisfying and debatably gross pimple-popping clips on Instagram for you to watch instead.

Popping a Cystic Pimple

If you’ve ever had a cystic pimple, you know they can be large, painful and deep under the skin. Depending on the size and severity of your pimple, your dermatologist may recommend a cortisone shot to help with the pain and reduce the lifespan of the pimple. Curious what that looks like? Check out the video below. 

Popping a Blackhead

Whether your blackheads like to hang out on your nose, on your cheeks or in between your eyebrows, these little pimples are sometimes the most tempting to pop. But instead of picking away at them while looking in a magnifying mirror, watch this video for some relief. Just because they’re small doesn’t mean they’re any less satisfying to watch disappear.

If you find fast-paced pimple popping videos the most entertaining, this is the video for you. You can watch tens of teensy-tiny blackheads being relieved in this video. We also love that they use gloves during the popping — safety first! 


An Oozing Pimple Popping Video

First things first, we don’t recommend popping a pimple like this at home. That said, this pimple has a lot (we repeat: a lot) of pus. Watching it all ooze out is truly mesmerizing. It’s a slow, steady, yet thorough popping video that doesn’t disappoint.
