In today's edition of Gross Things You Can Find on the Internet, there is definitive proof that the unicorn trend has gone too far, people. Dr. Pimple Popper just removed a so-called unicorn cyst from some guy's forehead, and it is something you simply can't unsee.
In the video, Dr. Pimple Popper (aka dermatologist Sandra Lee, MD) treats a man who's had a golf-ball-sized cyst for six years. Needless to say, there was a significant amount of blood and puss and stuff for Lee to dig into, literally. (Is your stomach churning yet?) Allure points out that 2:40 is a particularly ghastly moment to see a classic "popped" stream of gunk coming out of the cyst, if you're into that kind of thing.
The good news? Apparently, according to Lee, once the extraction heals, it'll only leave a small scar. (For him, maybe. For any online witnesses, we'll see.)
Of course, like all of Dr. Pimple Popper's videos, it's like a train wreck — you want to look away, you really do, but you just can't. But before you start, know that you've been warned. This 22-minute video is not for the squeamish or the faint of heart.
(And for the record, it's probably fair to say that no one who watches this will ever be interested in a unicorn frappuccino again.)
If you don't have 22 minutes to spend, here's an abridged version (sans the actual incision) on Dr. Pimple Popper's Instagram.
And if you still can't get enough, well, there's more where that came from.

Watch at your own risk.
She describes this one as "unforgettable." Agreed.
