Ear Wax Microsuction

Ear wax microsuction is a quick and safe method to remove excessive earwax

Ear Wax Removal Forest Hill

Ear wax microsuction is a quick and safe method that our pharmacists use to dislodge and remove a build-up of wax without touching the eardrum and sensitive areas of the ear to avoid causing possible damage.

Microsuction is especially useful for people who should not have water in their ears. A build up of earwax can cause problems in one or both ears, such as:

  • Muffled hearing
  • Tinnitus (hearing added noises, like ruffling)
  • Earache, itching or discomfort

Our earwax removal service is a safe and effective way to remove excessive earwax.

Is microsuction painful?

The gentle suction device works in a similar way to a vacuum cleaner, and although it can be quite noisy, it is quick and painless. If the object is hard, a removal can be slightly uncomfortable. The person doing your procedure will always tell you if it’s going to be uncomfortable.

Microsuction can be less uncomfortable if a wax-softening spray is used for 3 nights before, and on the morning of, the appointment. You can buy a wax-softening spray, such as Earol® olive oil spray, at your local pharmacy.

Please bring the spray with you to the appointment. We might need to use it in your ears to soften the wax.
