Skin tags, medically known as acrochordons, are small, soft, benign growths that hang off the skin. They are typically the same color as your skin or slightly darker. Skin tags are composed of loose collagen fibers and blood vessels surrounded by skin. Commonly found in areas where the skin folds or creases, such as the neck, armpits, groin, eyelids, and under the breasts, they are harmless but can be annoying or cosmetically undesirable. Skin tags are more common in older adults, people with diabetes, and during pregnancy due to hormonal changes.
Skin tags are primarily caused by friction from skin rubbing against skin or clothing, which is why they often form in skin folds and creases such as the neck, armpits, or groin. They are also associated with certain conditions and factors such as obesity, hormonal changes (like those occurring during pregnancy), diabetes, and genetic predisposition. Age is another factor, as skin tags become more common as people get older. Despite these associations, the exact cause of skin tags is not fully understood.
At Sunshine Cosmetic Clinic & Medi Spa, we are extra careful to make sure the area won’t become infected after skin tag removal. We use non-invasive procedures like Cryoprobe and Nd YAG to ensure the client’s comfort and safety. If you require skin tag treatment in the Kitchener Waterloo area, please book an appointment online at Sunshine Cosmetic Clinic & Medi Spa. Our skin tags removal options include:
Cryotherapy: Cryotherapy is a treatment that uses extreme cold to freeze and remove skin tags. It is a quick and effective method that causes minimal discomfort.
Nd YAG: Nd YAG is a laser treatment that can remove skin tags. The skin tag absorbs the laser energy, causing it to heat up and eventually fall off.
While it may be tempting to remove a skin tag at home, it’s generally not recommended. Attempting to remove a skin tag yourself can lead to complications, including infection, bleeding, and scarring, especially if the skin tag is in a sensitive area. In addition, it’s important to have a healthcare professional confirm that the growth is indeed a harmless skin tag and not a more serious skin condition. If a skin tag is bothersome or you’re concerned about its appearance, it’s best to consult a professional at a cosmetic clinic who can safely and effectively remove it.

I have done 2 Cutera IPL treatments at Sunshine Kitchener Waterloo Cosmetic Clinic and Medi Spa. My skin was much more even tone immediately after the treatments. Dr. Cathy Ding is so knowledgeable and professional. She will talk you through the process so you know exactly what to expect during the service and how to care for your skin afterwards. I am going to see Dr. Ding for my 3rd session next week and couldn't be more excited. I would 10/10 recommend this medical spa in a heartbeat.
Anytime I consider getting a procedure done I do extensive research online. Sunshine Cosmetic Clinic & Medi Spa looked like a high end medical spa with very good reviews. So I decided to do under eye filler with them. Dr. Murad was very good at the injection and patient as well. I'm extremely pleased with the results. Thanks!

From the moment that you walk in, the staff is so welcoming and friendly, the decor is professional and gorgeous, and you just feel so comfortable and relax.
