Ear wax is naturally produced by small glands inside your ears. It is specially designed by your body to protect your ear drums from being damaged by foreign bodies, small particles, and liquids. 

 

Although everyone has ear wax, the amount of ear wax that collects in the ears varies from person to person. Excessive collection of ear wax in your ear canals can lead to discomfort, blockage of your hearing, irritation, and pain. Therefore, it is essential to prevent excessive build-up of ear wax in your ears.

Common signs of wax

  • Hearing loss

  • Irritation and itchiness in the ears

  • Discomfort and pain in the ears 

  • A full sensation or pressure sensation in the ears

  • A blocked feeling in the ears

  • Hearing loss

If you are suffering from any of the above symptoms we can help you.  Our highly trained staff will use a specialised technique of ear wax removal known as “microsuction.” 

What is Microsuction?

Ear wax microsuction is the safest and best technique for removing ear wax. Microsuction is the only technique that is used by hospital specialists and ENT surgeons to remove ear wax. Our highly trained staff will use specialist equipment that uses a mini-vacuum suction device to remove the ear wax. This will all be done using high power magnification in order for our staff to see your ear canal clearly and remove the ear wax safely.

Why Microsuction?

 

  • It is safe – the ear canal and eardrum are very delicate and can be damaged easily if not done by a professional.

 

  • Cotton buds worsen the problem - It is not advisable to use cotton buds at home to try to remove ear wax. In actual fact, using cotton buds will push the ear wax deeper into the ear, causing more problems, and making it more difficult to remove.

 

We will never use:

 

  • Hopi ear candles – this technique is dangerous as the practitioner cannot see what they are doing. Also, there is no evidence that Hopi ear candles actually work – rather it gives a false perception of wax removal.

 

  • Ear syringing – this technique is dangerous and can cause infections, eardrum perforations, and more serious complications.
