Ear Wax Removal Methods
Ear wax serves to protect the ears and captures foreign bodies such as dust that may enter the auditory system. In situations where there is a build up of excess ear wax it may be necessary to remove this excess. At our UK wide ear wax removal clinics we use the popular and safe microsuction method to remove any excess ear wax. Find out more about microsuction below.
Microsuction Ear Wax Removal
Microsuction is the safest and pain free method chosen by our clinics for removing excess earwax.
Safe ENT Device
At all of our UK clinics Microsuction is carried out using a safe ENT device.
In the hands of an experienced practitioner, microsuction techniques are sophisticated enough to ensure the safe and effective removal of wax. With microsuction, pre-treatment with olive oil is not usually required, and even the most solid blockage can be removed without pain during. Patients very rarely need a second appointment.
The procedure is quick and effective, usually lasting from 2 to 10 minutes per ear, and there is no risk of infection as sterile, single-use-only equipment is used.
Second appointments will only usually be required in the event of an infection or to remove foreign bodies.
