Microsuction Ear Wax Removal
Modern, safe, effective, pain free and syringe free method of cleaning ears - no more blocked ears!
WHY USE MICRO SUCTION?
Although the ear has a natural mechanism for the removal of wax it is recognised that certain people do experience problems with accumulation of excess wax that may require additional help.
Factors such as narrow, hairy or obstructed ear canals, hearing aid or earplug use, as well as dusty/dirty occupations all contribute to a build-up of earwax and using cotton buds only serves to push the debris back in further, often impacting the wax in the process. This can give rise to deafness, tinnitus, vertigo, pain and or discharge.
Manual removal and ear irrigation can be used to relieve these symptoms but must be carried out by a trained specialist. Having this excess material removed by a hearing professional can restore a person's hearing dramatically and alleviate a number of problems.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM MICRO SUCTION?
Watch the 30 second clip below to give you a brief overview of what micro suction is and what you can expect when you get wax removed from Hearing Aid Solutions. (Courtesy of the BBC - Trust Me, I'm a Doctor, Series 3, Episode 1).
Usually micro suction does not need pre-treatment with drops but two to three days of Earol (clinically treated olive oil) is the best preparation.
For those of you who may be flying soon, don't leave it too late as excessive wax removal needs a solid few days treatment.
An audiologist will examine your ear using a binaural microsope (either fixed or with loupes glasses) and, using a fine low pressure suction device, safely remove the blockage.
Also, using a video otoscope we will show you the condition of the ear before and after the treatment.
