Ear wax microsuctioning

Micro suction ear wax removal – is it for you?

Micro suction ear wax removal is a treatment procedure that can be successful for those experiencing regular ear wax build up.  While ear syringe treatments are a more common ear wax removal treatment, they can feel uncomfortable and messy.

Cotton swabs should be avoided at all times as they tend to push ear wax further into the ear canal, worsening the problem.  Methods to clear stubborn ear wax have evolved, and micro suction ear wax removal could be a helpful solution for you.

If you’ve been living with persistent ringing or background noise in your ears, keep reading to find out more about ear wax removal and how micro suction may help to put an end to your ear wax build up.


What is micro suction ear wax removal?

Ear wax removal with micro suction is a progressive treatment which removes ear wax with a small steel instrument attached to a suction wand inserted directly into the ear canal.

The thin tube gently sucks or vacuums the wax out while the whole ear area is monitored with a microscope, so the practitioner can visually observe the wax removal.


Why choose this method to remove ear wax?

Micro suction relies on a vacuum movement to remove ear wax and is one of the cleanest, simplest and safest ways to remove ear wax build up and clear blockages in the ear canal. The procedure eliminates the need for water or messy solutions and won’t lead to further damage that can occur when wax is pushed further down the ear canal.


Benefits of micro suction

Results are instant

 Most of the times  you will only need one treatment before noticing a marked difference. In cases of excessive wax, further treatments may be required to avoid future build-up, however, follow up treatments may not be necessary and will be individually recommended after your appointment.

There’s no water, liquids, gels or messy fluids needed for micro suction ear wax removal. This method is clean and clear, significantly reducing the risk of infection associated with traditional methods of ear wax removal.

No liquids required

Ear wax suction eliminates the need for injecting water or liquids into the ear canal making it a safer procedure, even for those with hearing difficulties or conditions such as perforated eardrums.
