Removing Moles with Liquid Nitrogen | Dr. Pimple Popper


WHAT CAN I DO
FOR YOU TODAY? I HAVE THESE MOLES THAT ARE
A BIT OF CONCERN TO ME. -OKAY.
-THEY’RE SPREADING, AND THEY’RE KIND OF
A HINDRANCE. MY CLOTHES CATCH ON THEM.
-YES. -THEY ITCH, AND THEY STING.
-OKAY. AND THEN, I’M ALSO CONCERNED,
BECAUSE AT THE BACK OF MY MIND IS THAT THOUGHT
OF SKIN CANCER. OKAY. THESE ARE CALLED
SEBORRHEIC KERATOSES. HAVE YOU EVER
HEARD THAT BEFORE? I’VE NEVER HEARD
THAT BEFORE, NO. SEBORRHEIC KERATOSES,
THEY ARE REALLY COMMON. A LOT OF PEOPLE CONFUSE THEM
FOR MOLES, AND THEY’RE NOT MOLES. THEY’RE JUST GROWTHS
THAT OCCUR. THE ANNOYING THING
IS THAT THEY’RE THERE, AND THEN YOU KEEP
GETTING MORE, AND SO YOU SORT OF
FIGHT THE FIGHT. I MEAN, WE HAVE PEOPLE
COMING IN HERE REPEATEDLY, ‘CAUSE YOU TAKE OFF SOME
OF THEM, AND THEY GET NEW ONES. THAT’S JUST THE CYCLE
THAT HAPPENS. PAT HAS SO MANY OF THESE
SEBORRHEIC KERATOSES. IT’S ALMOST AS IF
SHE HAS MORE OF THEM THAN SHE HAS REGULAR SKIN. USUALLY, WE CAN’T TREAT
ALL OF THESE IN ONE SESSION, BUT I THINK IT’S DEFINITELY
WORTH A TRY. AND THE NUMBER OF THESE
THAT I CAN REMOVE IS VERY DEPENDENT
ON HER PAIN THRESHOLD. I WOULD SUGGEST GETTING THE ONES
THAT YOU CAN SEE MOST OF THE TIME.
-EXACTLY. EXACTLY. DR. LEE WAS ABLE TO
DEFINITIVELY SAY WHAT IT WAS, BUT THE MAIN THING
IS THEY’RE TREATABLE. AND SHE RECOMMENDED
THAT WE TAKE SOME OFF TODAY, WHICH I’M ON BOARD WITH THAT. -I BROUGHT SOME AMMUNITION.
-I SEE. I’M TWO-FISTED HERE. THIS IS THE LIQUID
NITROGEN CANISTER. I DON’T KNOW IF YOU’VE
SEEN THIS BEFORE, BUT IT SPRAYS
LIQUID NITROGEN OUT. LIQUID NITROGEN
IS REALLY COLD. IT’S LIKE 300 BELOW.
-MM-HMM. RIGHT. SO, LET ME TAKE A LOOK
WITH THE LIGHT HERE, OKAY? I GOT MY LITTLE
MAGNIFIER HERE. YEAH, YOU CAN SEE
WHAT’S CALLED FOLLICULAR PLUGS. THERE’S, LIKE, ALL THESE
LITTLE DOTS IN SOME OF THEM, AND THEY HAVE THIS
SORT OF PASTED-ON APPEARANCE, A WAXY KIND OF LOOK. THIS IS VERY TYPICAL
FOR SEBORRHEIC KERATOSES. THEY LOOK LIKE THAT
UNDER THE MICROSCOPE, TOO. YOU GOT THESE LITTLE PLUGS. OKAY.
AND OVER HERE. WE’RE GOING TO START WITH
THE LIQUID NITROGEN HERE NOW. I’M GOING TO START IN THE AREAS
THAT YOU HAVE MORE CONFLUENT. YOU KNOW, LIKE, THEY’RE KIND OF
ALMOST CONNECTED HERE. Pat: I’M A LITTLE NERVOUS
ABOUT THE PROCEDURE, BECAUSE I KNOW IT’S GOING
TO BE EXTRA, EXTRA COLD, AND THAT WILL HURT A LITTLE BIT, SO I’M JUST GOING TO BE
AS POSITIVE AND OPTIMISTIC AS I CAN. I BROUGHT TWO OF THEM, ‘CAUSE
SOMETIMES WE USE IT SO MUCH THAT YOU CAN GET
A LITTLE FROSTBITE ON IT, AND I HAVE TO
DO IT AGAIN. LIQUID NITROGEN TREATMENT
CAN BE PRETTY PAINFUL. IT IS SO COLD THAT IT BURNS. I KNOW MYSELF.
I COULD PROBABLY ONLY TOLERATE THREE OR FOUR S.K.s REMOVED
AT ONE TIME. SO, JUST TURN YOUR HEAD THIS —
AWAY FROM HERE. OKAY. PAT HERE HAS HUNDREDS OF THEM. LET ME SEE HOW MANY SHE’S GOING
TO TOLERATE ME TREATING. NO PAIN, NO GAIN. I’M GOING TO USE A LITTLE
COLD SPRAY HERE, OKAY? OKAY.
