Why Microsuction?

Microsuction is the safest and most comfortable method of earwax removal, no liquids are used during the procedure. Which means that there is no fuss or mess during the procedure. The fact that we can clearly see the ear canal and more importantly exactly what we are doing, makes it an exceptionally safe procedure. It is an especially comfortable process and it is usually undertaken in a few minutes making it a same day service.

The days of ear syringing as seen on the Carry on films has truly been deposited into the history books.

The Benefits of Microsuction Earwax Removal

Using our services ensures that you have your earwax removed safely, quickly and by a person you can trust. The process is usually over in a few minutes and the majority of people find it easy and comfortable.  The process is the safest way to remove earwax as the professional can see everything they are doing during the removal.

Unlike ear syringing or ear irrigation, where ear wax is flushed out without a view of the canal, during microsuction, the canal and the ear wax is being directly viewed with the microscope whilst it is being removed. This makes the procedure much quicker, safer and comfortable for the patient. Other benefits of this type of  ear wax removal include:

A Good View Of The Ear Canal

We have a great view of both the earwax and the ear canal. It means that we can always see what we are doing. Making it easier for us and safe for you.

No Messy Water Used

No water is used or flushed into the ear canal as happens with ear syringing or ear irrigation. Instead the procedure is dry which significantly reduces any risk of infection.

Safe For Perforations

Unlike ear syringing and ear irrigation, it is safe for people who have a perforated eardrum or mastoid cavity, in addition to any foreign object that may be lodged inside the ear canal

Wax blockage is one of the most common causes of hearing loss. This is often caused by attempts to clean the ear with cotton swabs. Most cleaning attempts merely push the wax deeper into the ear canal, causing a blockage.

Are ear candles an option for removing wax build up?

No, ear candles are not a safe option of wax removal as they may result in serious injury. Since users are instructed to insert the 10 to 15-long, cone-shaped, hollow candles, typically made of wax-impregnated cloth, into the ear canal and light the exposed end, some of the most common injuries are burns, obstruction of the ear canal with wax of the candle, or perforation of the membrane that separates the ear canal and the middle ear.
